These top 10 greatest boxers of all time are chosen not only because of their household names but also because of their solid affirmation of their supremacy during the time of their reign as champions.
10. George Foreman; 76 W, 5 L, 68 KO
Born January 05, 1949. This fighter has always been haunted by his own ghost. After his triumphal rise to fame, his crashing defeat in the hands of Ali has left him devastated more on the spirit than on his physical side. He has named all five of his sons George because: “In this career, you have to prepare for long term brain damage.”
He is a two-time world heavyweight champion and an Olympic gold medalist.
9. Sugar Ray Leonard; 36 W, 3 L, 1 D, 25 KO
Born May 17, 1956. He is an epitome of a scientific fighter and a genius on top of the ring. He can get into the minds of his opponent to inflict the most serious jabs to bring them to submission. One of the most memorable of all is the infamous “no mas” episode with Roberto Duran.
Leonard was also the first boxer to earn more than $100 million in purses, and was named “Boxer of the Decade” in the 1980s
