in the whole world (not just in the U.S. or UK)?
Who would you say are?
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.
Xiong Zhao Zhong.
Cotto, Marquez and Alvarez are only really regionally popular as are the Chinese that I mentioned.....I am really interested in worldwide.
lol omg wtf. you making up random names?
lol. In all fairness, Ioka actually does numbers in Japan, iirc
Maywather, Klitschkos & Pacquiao
The rest is one step lower.
In this order, the top 6 are:
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.
yep thanks to those millions of Chinese
Only Mayweather and Pacquiao.
May, pac, klitscho(not america), cotto, chavez jr, canelo, martinez, jmm, broner, donaire, rios.
In that order.
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.
Separate names with a comma.
