Divisional rankings: Joe Joyce shines, moves up at heavyweight

play
Joe Joyce knocks out Joseph Parker with one punch (1:01)

Joe Joyce ends his fight with Joseph Parker in Round 11, thanks to one punch to Parker's face. (1:01)

ESPN's divisional boxing rankings highlight the best in the sport in every weight class. They will change often, based on recent results and performances. Rankings are based on what a fighter has accomplished in the weight division in which he is ranked. A fighter who has announced he is moving up or down to a new weight division will not be ranked in a new weight class until he actually fights in that weight class (and warrants being ranked). Fighters that currently own titles in two different divisions will be ranked in both weight classes.

Fighters who haven't competed in the past 15 months -- and don't have a fight scheduled -- will be dropped from the rankings. Any fighter who tests positive for a performance-enhancing substance will also be removed from the rankings. That boxer will be eligible to re-enter the rankings after the following bout.

Heavyweight Joe Joyce moved up two spot after his impressive win over Joseph Parker, while junior lightweight Shakur Stevenson retained his top spot at 130 pounds after a clear unanimous decision victory over Robson Conceicao.

Rankings are determined by Mike Coppinger, Ben Baby and Michael Rothstein. They are updated weekly on Tuesdays.
