It looks like Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) is set to lose his Ring Magazine heavyweight title if he doesn’t schedule a fight by February. Ring Magazine editor in chief Doug Fischer looks to be poised to make a move in changing out Fury for someone else.

The guy that will likely replace Fury at No.1 is IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, who is rated #1 in the Ring Magazine heavyweight rankings.

WBC champion Deontay Wilder is rated No.2. Those 2 heavyweights have upcoming title defenses in March. Wilder is defending his WBC belt against 3 WBC Luis ‘King Kong’ Ortiz on March 3 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Joshua will be facing the always dangerous WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) in a unification fight on March 31, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Parker is rated #3 and Ortiz #5 in the Ring heavyweight rankings. Depending on how the Joshua-Parker and Wilder-Ortiz fights turn out.

”Fury needs to get a fight on the schedule asap. We can’t go into February still not knowing when or who the lineal champ will fight,” said Fischer in his column at RingTV.com on Monday.
