Following Tyson Fury's win on Saturday night, The DAZN Boxing Show took a look at its heavyweight power rankings, which were published on the DAZN News website on Monday.

While there may not be many movers or shakers at the top of the list, Frank Sanchez is looking to gatecrash the rankings with his points win against Efe Ajgba on the undercard of Fury vs. Wilder 3.

Ak and Barak made a case on the latest episode for Sanchez to be in the top 10 ahead of the likes of Joe Joyce and Michael Hunter.

"He needs to be in the top 10, I don't care," Ak said.

"Let's look at this list. Number 10 is Joe Joyce. Come on number 10 is Joe Joyce. Number nine is Michael Hunter. And I cannot squeeze him in front of those guys?" Barak went onto say.

When it came to whether Sanchez should be ranked higher than Hunter, Ak believed Sanchez's promising future should give him a higher position on the list.

"Does Michael Hunter have a bigger win than Frank Sanchez? Because he only had a draw with Povetkin. Who else has he beaten?"

"I'm gonna go on a limb and say that Frank Sanchez at some point will fight for a world title. There's too much talent there, I know he's a small guy but he fights like a heavyweight Canelo. It's scary."
