TODAY’S TOP TEN MOST POPULAR BOXERS IN THE U.S. 2015
By Joe Harrison
It is normally difficult to do this list because boxing’s popularity has declined so much in the United States. The year 2014 was definitely a poor year when compared to 2013, but certain names are beginning to break out more than ever.
For instance, the number of viewers for an event can be taken into consideration, but causal fans are beginning to use names like Kovalev and “GGG” more so than in the past. On the other hand, you will find plenty of people who have never heard of the non-American boxers, let alone actual American boxers not named Mayweather or 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. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
5. Sergey Kovalev
6. Gennady Golovkin
7. Juan Manuel Marquez
8. Bernard Hopkins
9. Wladimir Klitschko
10. Miguel Cotto
Other notables: Danny Garcia, Chris Arreola, Ruslan Provodnikov, Terence Crawford, Orlando Salido and Amir Khan.
