Khan, 21, is one place in front of Zahir Raheem, who holds a win over Mexican great Erik Morales, and is just below potential opponent Yuri Romanov the European Champion.
At #6 is Australian warrior Michael Katsidis, the Interim WBO World Champion, who defeated Earl in an all-out war at the beginning of the year and Ring Champion is Joel Casamayor.
"This year has probably been the best of my career and I'm really looking forward to 2008," Said Khan who headlines the ExCeL London on Saturday 2nd February.
"It's great to be recognised by the highly respected Ring Magazine and I'm looking to climb their ratings with each performance and eventually get one of those great Ring Belts that Joe Calzaghe and Ricky Hatton have,"
"My skill, strength and power is improving with every fight and I believe that I can beat any of those guys in the division,"
"I've had a great ending to the year with the Earl victory, I'm unbeaten in fifteen fights and the Commonwealth Champion, I'm ranked in the top ten of the WBO and WBC and now the Ring Magazine and I'm really excited by what next year holds for me."
