Top Five Biggest Stars in Boxing Today

Let me start off by clarifying this list does not represent top ten off of skill...it is a top ten biggest "stars" or "draws" in the sport.


NUMBER 1: Canelo Alvarez


- The multi-weight division champ has the look, fans and most importantly the skill that makes him the top draw in Boxing today. Currently in contractual disputes we can only hope he returns soon to fight the many names waiting for him such as Callum Smith, Billy Joe Saunders and GGG.


NUMBER 2: Manny Pacquiao


- The legend needs no introduction.....Manny still is beloved by boxing fans and demands attention anytime he steps into the squared circle. After his last performance against Keith Thurman it seems the 41 year old Senator still has some magic left in him. Pacman next opponent is unannounced but is likely between Mikey Garcia and Terence Crawford based on recent rumors....


NUMBER 3: Tyson Fury


- The Gypsy King resurrected his career, rose from the dead in round 12 and then dominated Wilder in the rematch. Through all this he has captured a mass of fans that have identified with his comeback story. Now looking to fight Wilder in the trilogy and also having signed a multi-fight deal with Anthony Joshua it is apparent that the Fury doesn't intend on going anywhere for some time.


NUMBER 4: Anthony Joshua


- "AJ" holds all but the WBC belt in the heavyweight division after avenging his devastating loss to Andy Ruiz at MSG. A massive star in the UK and the prize of Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing....Joshua eagerly awaits the outcome of Wilder vs Fury 3. He is scheduled to stay busy against Pulev....a fight he should win but as we saw against Ruiz..it only takes one shot to ruin your night in the heavyweight division.


NUMBER 5: Deontay Wilder


- BOOOOMBBSQUAAAD!.............the call for destruction was muffled in the rematch against Fury but I feel Wilder showed a lot of heart that he didn't get too much credit for in that fight. My point is that Wilder is by no means an easy task for Fury in the Trilogy... at any moment the show can be over and Fury will have to be as sharp and on point as ever. Wilder delivers devastating KO's and before "Fury 2" there was no man that didn't find them selves on the canvas. Wilder vs Fury 3......MUST WATCH TV
