    NOTE! NEW DEADLINE!

    October 11, 2021

    =======

    Short and simple.

    I'm looking for volunteers to list their Top 15 favorite active boxers.

    No real prerequisites. Just looking for professional boxers (and not boxers who only had a handful of fights, or less). I mean, if your Uncle Bob is some club fighter actively competing, someone that nobody else but you would have heard of - then Uncle Bob isn't really what we're gunning for here. But otherwise, your criteria defining your favorite active boxers is your own. There are no wrong answers.

    The only REQUIREMENT is that you list FIRST NAME and LAST NAME.

    If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

    DEADLINE is AUGUST 31, 2021

    I expect a couple of trends. This one of course, and a couple of names that end up high (maybe top spot) on some lists, and not at all on others. The divisive ones so to speak.

    For the record, like a few of the lists, I was this close to adding Kovalev... who I'm still loyal to, but left him off because he's been inactive for so long, and I'm not entirely sure he'll ever box again.

    11. Daniel Jacobs
    12. Dereck Chisora
    13. Kubrat Pulev
    14. Andy Ruiz
    15. Alexander Povetkin

    My list is a little different, as it is really hard to say that someone is actually a favorite of mine except for the top3 on my list... in the recent years I am really loosing the passion for the sport. Used to be a big Wilder fan back in 2015, but I became really disappointed. Added Kubrat Pulev just because he is Bulgarian. Also from 4 to 15 it is just fighters that I enjoyed seeing at one point or another.
