Here Are The Top Seven Active Boxers With The Best Records

Boxing is considered the definitive combat sport, and here we will go through some of the active boxers who are boasting the best records.

First up is the heavyweight division and the names that come to mind are Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, and the reigning WBA, WBO, and IBF title holder, Oleksandr Usyk. “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, who hails from Tuscaloosa, Alabama was the last American to hold any of the available titles at the reputable division.

Wilder, with a record of 42-2-1 and 41 knockouts, has lost his previous two fights both coming in the hands of the now-retired, Fury. But former Olympian Bronze Medalist has vowed to return to the ring and bring the heavyweight title back to the land of America as he sees no other heavyweight besides himself from this piece of the earth who can challenge for the belt as of now.

If America is currently deprived of a boxing heavyweight strap, all credit goes to ‘The Gypsy King’. The Morecambe, Lancashire-native surprised everyone when he went to Wilder’s backyard and stripped him of the prestigious title. Fury out boxed Wilder on all three occasions when the two shared the ring between themselves and returned to his homeland with the WBC title wrapped around his waist. He holds the record of 32-0-1 with 23 knockouts.

Another heavyweight that surely deserves a mention here is Ukrainian, Oleksandr Usyk. The Southpaw holds the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles after he dominated English sensation, Anthony “AJ” Joshua last winter. Now the two are set to meet again in a rematch on August 20th in Saudi Arabia. Usyk has enjoyed tremendous success and is undefeated since turning pro, swaggering a record of 19 wins and no losses to go with 13 knockouts.

Next up in line is the former P4P king, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez who has nothing but brilliance to show off on his record, 57-2-2 with 39 knockouts. Canelo suffered a major setback to his legacy this summer when the Mexican Icon was outshined by the younger and bigger Russian, Dimitry Bivol. But despite the loss, Canelo still holds the upper hand in the world of boxing. He is scheduled to face the WBA and IBF World Middleweight champion Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin
later this year.

Another middleweight that can be argued to have the best record is the WBO champ, Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo, 32-0 with 22 knockouts straight out of Houston, Texas. Charlo may not be liked by many, but it is a fact that the 32-year-old has earned the respect of many the hard way and is destined for greatness if he stays focused.

The current welterweight division has also got many stalwarts who are in contention for having the best record. The WBO welterweight titlist Terence “Bud” Crawford, 38-0 with 29 knockouts is in negotiation with the WBC, WBA, and IBF champion Errol “The Truth” Spence, 28-0 with 22 knockouts. If that fight ever happens, it will determine the undisputed champion of the division.
