Should be Usyk then Canelo

I cant put Loma there until he avenges his loss to Lopez or beats Kambosos, had Estrada losing to Gonzalez in the last one but the trilogy should decide it

GGG loses his spot hes a part time boxer nowadays lol

What Canelo has done in the last year makes this easy, the wins against Smith and Saunders especially were impressive against unbeaten fighters. Usyk would be second to go straight in at Heavy and put on a flawless performance against a two time champ was a very good showing.

I cant believe it took that long for Tyson Fury to enter The Ring's PxP ranking, while other fighter took less to make the list.

Its also good to see Kazuto Ioka in several rankings as well.

Heres a compillation of three PxP rankings
Not surprised they've put Tyson Fury 5th as ESPN have shown a pattern of this kind of bias in the past (the only surprise is he isn't 3rd) but if Fury is above the undisputed (& unblemished) Josh Taylor then why is he not also above Usyk since Fury's heavyweight record is better than Usyk's? It can't be because Usyk is undisputed at Cruiser right since JT is also undisputed and is defending the crown next month so that can't be it

Fury beating Wilder who can't box shouldn't put him anywhere near the P4P list, he needs to beat Usyk to get on it.

I disagree and agree with you at the same time.

Fury's THREE wins over the most dangerous puncher in the sport were massively impressive. And his win over Wlad was at least notewrothy. (With an asterisk.)
But what else has he really done?

Clearly, being undefeated isn't a prerequisite for The Rings' rankings, since they have Loma in there, so there are a number of guys who arguably have done more than Fury.
As great as he is, he absolutely does NOT deserve to be top-ten P4P.

Being undefeated should enhance someone's chances of being in the P4P list though. Losses, for example Loma's loss to Lopez who then lost to Kambosos, are hardly positives.
