Popular Boxers Today

Posted : admin On 13.02.2021

Joining America's heavy-hitting fighter and Britain's unpredictable boxer in this list are Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, and Andy Ruiz Jr., who have all had good wins of late. Boxing legends Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis have all secured a place in the top 10 heavyweight boxers of all time. BoxRec ranked heavyweights, both past and present, and awarded each.

Welcome to ESPN's divisional boxing rankings. They change often based on what happened in each weight class the previous week. As a general rule, the rankings are based on what a fighter has accomplished in the weight division in which he is ranked, although his overall body of work is not entirely ignored. Also, as a general rule, a fighter who may have 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).
