TODAY’S TOP TEN MOST POPULAR BOXERS (IN THE U.S.), 2014
By Joe Harrison
It is normally difficult to do this list because boxing’s popularity has declined so much in the United States. On the other hand, 2013 was an excellent year for the sport, and mainstream sports fans are beginning to notice more names than Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. There are a high number of viewers for fights that involve names like Adrien Broner or Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Not only should the number viewers be taken into consideration, but also amongst the casual fans who converse by the water cooler. It is astonishing to hear regular people discussing fights involving Timothy Bradley or even 49-year-old Bernard Hopkins.
Therefore, below are ten names that may or may not sound familiar to sports fans in the United States.
1. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
2. Manny Pacquiao
3. Saul “Canelo” Avarez
4. Miguel Cotto
5. Bernard Hopkins
6. Adrien Broner
7. Juan Manuel Marquez
8. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
9. Wladimir Klitschko
10. Timothy Bradley
Other notables: Danny Garcia, Andre Ward, Miguel “Mikey” Garcia, Sergio Martinez, Tomasz Adamek, Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov.
