    He's unorthodox and gets hit, but he's entertainment and violence at its finest.

    Not in order.

    I edited the post to add reasoning for each one

    Gallo. He can get sloppy sometimes when he starts to throw down but when he is doing his boxing he is a beautiful fighter to watch.

    GGG (active?) I still think he is undefeated.

    Bivol. I think nobody is going to beat this guy in a while, if ever.

    Fury. A guy that size moving like that with cardio for 12 rounds is not normal.

    Usyk. Fighting IQ is over the limit

    Zepeda. Destroyed that clown in one round and was in a crazy war with multiple knockdowns and won with a highlight reel KO.

    Wilder (won me over last fight) legendary right hand and went out on his shield like he wanted, a warrior. Regardless of his personality. Was part of the most fun trilogy we’ve seen for a long time.

    Inoue. He’s inoue.

    Navarrete. Craziest style, even the highest level boxers go “wtf” when analyzing his fights, nothing of what he does should work the way it does but it does.

    Donaire, best left hook i have ever seen, clean fighter, nice guy, family man, possibly the greatest human being of the list.

    Loma. Don’t like him as a person but some of the shit he does in the ring is worth a rewind just to see if I’m not imagining things.

    No specific order

    Chocolatito - tiny god.
    Inoue - smashes them all.
    Usyk - always delivers.
    Spence - tossup with Virgil Ortiz at WW, I love the kid’s mentality.
    Matias - one motherfucking entertainer.
    Zepeda - got in after he smoked this clown the last time around.
    Navarrete - relentless.
    Estrada - one tough and disciplined mofo.
    Taylor - smart guy in a boxing ring.
    Lomachenko - I dislike the diva antics but he’s still something to behold.
    Donaire - fine wine.

    GGG gets back in if he wins convincingly his next bout.

    Alvarez became too big for me to root and I've never really liked his character. Does he get my respect ? Hell yes. Is he a favorite active boxer of mine ? Nope.
