    Manny, Cotto, Martinez, Mayweather, Marquez, Canelo are the biggest. Klitschko's are huge everywhere except America.

    I would start with Pacquiao, Mayweather and the Klitchko's.....however as an example I am aware that muti-millions of Chinese viewers follow a few of their boxers and outnumber those that follow boxing in the west.

    Cotto, Marquez and Alvarez are only really regionally popular as are the Chinese that I mentioned.....I am really interested in worldwide.

    Mayweather and Pacquiao yes, but Cotto is really only among Puerto Ricans and those in the U.S. as well as the Mexicans you listed are very popular in Mexico and the southwestern U.S. I can see Alvarez becoming famous worldwide with a win over Mayweather next year.

    They draw big in the US. Sure they are much bigger in their home countries.

    I think thats probably right.....the Klitchko's are near and if Alvarez can beat Mayweather next year he may become famous/popular.

    People here don't know much about the Klitschkos, Ward or any other boxers who aren't Cotto and the guys he's fought, Juanma Lopez and the guys he's fought.
