Let’s admit it. When it comes to boxing, we have our own list of the best of the best boxers. Boxing is one of the sporting events that has been around for some time. The thrill of watching boxing matches is overwhelming. You can feel the adrenaline rushing through you with each punch your favorite boxer unleashes. Here is the list of the greatest boxers of all time.
The Best Boxers Of All Time
Perhaps everyone would agree when I say that Muhammad Ali was and will always be the greatest boxer of all time. He’s not just a boxer. He was a tactician, a thinker and a role model. He knew how to bring a great fight for the fans.
“Iron Mike” Tyson is deserves to be high in this list. During his tenure as a boxer, Tyson was unstoppable. He would devastate his opponents with his power punches, and his punches were not comparable. His punches were simply “unparalleled”. Although he had been jailed for domestic violence in the past years, Tyson has since made guest appearances on TV and movies.
The “Pacman” is the only boxer with eight championships in eight different weight divisions. I doubt any boxer would achieve the same feat in the coming years. He is dubbed as the “greatest pound for pound boxer” in recent years. He’s also become the Fighter of the Year in various sports magazines. If you watch Pacquiao’s matches, you will definitely get what you pay for.
Rocky Marciano exited the boxing world without a loss, not even one! He had a very impressive 49 wins, zero losses throughout his entire career. He is likewise one of the hardest punchers in the boxing world.
Sugar Ray Robinson
There’s no doubt about Sugar Ray Robinson being included on this list. Even Ali said himself that Robinson is the greatest boxer of all time. Robinson was never knocked out in his entire career until he reached the age of 45. With 173 wins under his name, who would ever argue about Robinson being a legend inside the ring?
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Call him what you want, but Floyd Mayweather Jr. will go down in the book as one of the best technical boxers of all time. Like Rocky Marciano, Floyd doesn’t have any losses under his name. Although we don’t see much action in his bouts, one can only appreciate how a Floyd Mayweather Jr. thinks. If he had fought Pacquiao in his prime, perhaps we would see a stellar performance between these two legends.
Joe Louis was an inspiration to everyone. He wasn’t just a boxer. He inspired people, making him the “people’s champion”. Louis was undefeated for 12 years, which is a testament that at one point, he was the best boxer in the world.
During his days as a boxer, the name George Foreman was feared. He was also called as the ” Master of Destruction” in the ring. After his 10-year hiatus, he returned to the ring to fight a young Mike Tyson, which Foreman totally lost to. Had it been during Foreman’s absolute prime, Tyson would never get to see the day he whoops Foreman’s butt.
