Top 10 Unbeatable Pound-to-pound boxers, 2021
The discussion about who is the best boxer in the world is always a lively one among boxing enthusiasts. The final decision on the best boxers is based on several factors. Some people rank the best boxers based on their appearance, while others rank them solely on their performance. However, other factors are taken into account when determining this rating. They are as follows:
- Results: The official result is the most accurate indicator of a boxer's abilities.
- Performance: The fighter's performance is measured by how well he or she wins or loses a fight.
- Fighting History: It's also crucial to consider who a fighter has beaten and what titles they have won.
- Fighting Activity: This metric shows how often a boxer fights against top-ranked opponents.
