The argument on who is the best boxer in the world usually elicits an exciting debate among boxing fans. In deciding on the best current boxers, people use different criteria. Some rate the best boxers based on their looks, while others look at their performances. However, there are several factors considered when coming up with this ranking. They are:
● Results – the official result is the best indicator of a boxer’s capability.
● Performance – this looks at how the fighter wins or loses a fight.
● Resume – it is also essential to look at the opponents a fighter has beaten, and the titles won.
● Activity – this factor evaluates how often a fighter takes on top-rated opposition.
Based on these factors, here are the best current boxers in the world that you can bet on, on Betway, right now.
