    too many to name really. i tend to get really into prospects and watch them mature, cheering them on along the way. there’s a lot of younger fighters i really like:

    eimantas stanionis
    raymond ford
    xander zayas
    elvis rodriguez
    bakhodir jalolov
    ricardo sandoval
    michel rivera
    vergil ortiz
    jesse rodriguez

    all of these guys are very promising, some p4p-level talented.

    Not in any particular order, but:

    Vasyl Lomachenko
    Saul "Canelo" Alvarez
    Artur Beterbiev
    Oleksandr Usyk
    Mairis Breidis
    Sebastien Fundora
    Naoya Inoue
    Nonito Donaire
    Robert Helenius
    Vergil Ortiz
    Errol Spence

    I'm missing a hard charging (like a younger Provodnikov) Ukrainian/Russian fella that got KO'd not too long ago...his name escapes me, but when I see he's on a card, I won't miss it.

    I don't have 10-15 favorite fighters. I don't get emotionally invested in boxers the way a lot of fans do. I enjoy watching Canelo, I guess. These days, I tune into the fights just hoping for a good fight.

    @Seano’s list is easy, only exciting fighters that aren’t boring and no southpaws

    That's the guy... Ivan Baranchyk.
    That Jose Zepeda fight was the KO I was thinking of.
    Really it's that style of fighter that I love to watch work....like Otar Eranosyan last night push forward until either you or your opponent drops. Fun stuff.

    I remember that fight now. They were knocking each other down all fight until Zepeda slept him.

    I'd struggle to name 10 that I'm actively cheering for.

    Big fan of Ennis coming up.

    Ennis
    Ugas
    Morrell
    Taylor
    Spence
    Beterbiev

    Mathias is as fun as anyone to watched. Still love watching Berchelt despite him getting annihilated. I like Prograis' style a lot, too.

    I still support Usyk, but I'd likely support him way more if he wasn't mixed up in a lot of bizarre Russian Orthodox groups (not that anyone in that conflict is particularly sympathetic).
