Top 25 Boxers over The Last 25 Years
 

 
25. Oscar De La Hoya, 1992-2008, 39-6, 30 knockouts The biggest star of his era, he won titles in six weight classes.

24. Shane Mosley, 1993-present, 46-7-1, 1 no contest, 39 knockouts Mosley was a dominant lightweight with uncommon speed and power.

[Martin Rogers: Shane Mosley vows to make Saul Alvarez pay for overconfidence]

23. Felix Trinidad, 1990-2008, 42-3, 35 knockouts Trinidad was a vicious puncher and a quality offensive f!ghter who fought just about all of the greats of his era.

22. Ridd!ck Bowe, 1989-2008, 43-1, 1 no contest, 33 knockouts Though he had a great record, including two wins over Evander Holyfield, Bowe seems like a failure because he was so physically gifted.

21. Humberto "Chiquita" Gonzalez, 1984-1995, 43-3, 31 knockouts Gonzalez was a little man with big power. He's regarded as one of the pound-for-pound best punchers ever.

20. Mike Tyson, 1985-2005, 50-6, 2 no contests, 44 knockouts Tyson was a massive puncher, but he isn't higher because he never beat a truly elite heavyweight in his prime.

19. Mike McCallum, 1981-1997, 49-5-1, 36 knockouts McCallum was one of the sport's best body punchers who may have been the best super welterweight of his time.

18. James Toney, 1989-present, 74-7, 45 knockouts Toney was a master craftsman who would be higher on this list if not for his maddening inconsistency.

17. Juan Manuel Marquez, 1993-present, 54-6-1, 39 knockouts Marquez is a complete f!ghter who combines offense and defense as well as anyone in the last quarter-century.

16. Michael Carbajal, 1989-1999, 49-4, 33 knockouts He was so good, he forced Americans to pay attention to the light flyweight division. That's saying a lot.

15. Marco Antonio Barrera, 1989-2011, 67-7, 1 no contest, 44 knockouts "The Baby-faced a.ssassin" reeled off wins over the likes of Naseem Hamed, Erik Morales, Johnny Tapia and Paulie Ayala.

14. Joe Calzaghe, 1993-2008, 46-0, 32 knockouts Calzaghe had a remarkable run at super middleweight, going 22-0 in 168-pound title f!ghts.

13. Lennox Lewis, 1988-2003, 41-2-1, 32 knockouts Lewis beat every man he faced, avenging losses to Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman, and fought to a draw with Evander Holyfield.

12. Manny Pacquiao, 1995-present, 54-3-2, 38 knockouts Pacquiao made an extraordinary rise through the weight classes and his speed and power made him elite.

[Kevin Iole: Bernard Hopkins remains a riddle, even in defeat]

11. Bernard Hopkins, 1988-present, 52-6-2, 2 no contests, 32 knockouts In 2011, Hopkins defeated Jean Pascal to become, at 46, the oldest man ever to win a major belt. He also made 20 consecutive successful defenses of the middleweight title earlier in his career.

10. Ricardo Lopez, 1985-2001, 51-0-1, 38 knockouts A master craftsman, Lopez was the best small f!ghter of his era. He went unbeaten in 26 world title f!ghts (25-0-1) and knocked off a who's who of his era's best.

9. Floyd Mayweather Jr., 1996-present, 42-0, 26 knockouts Mayweather was at his best at super featherweight, when he had a streak in which he beat a string of elite f!ghters. He remains a masterful defensive f!ghter who has underrated counterpunching ability.

8. Thomas Hearns, 1977-2006, 61-5-1, 48 knockouts Hearns' prime came before 1988, but he has wins over a small army of Hall of Famers. He was a devastating knockout puncher and carried his pop with him from welterweight through middleweight.

7. Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., 1980-2005, 107-6-2, 86 knockouts Chavez began his career an astounding 87-0 and beat so many world champions, a list of them all would be the size of a phone book. He was a ferocious inside f!ghter who went hard to the body and punched well in combination.

6. George Foreman, 1969-1997, 76-5, 68 knockouts Arguably the greatest puncher ever, and I know that creates an argument. Foreman destroyed Joe Frazier to win the title in his first stint. After a 10-year retirement, he came back and became the oldest man, at the time, to win a major world title a record since surpassed by Bernard Hopkins.

5. Evander Holyfield, 1984-present, 44-10-2, 29 knockouts Holyfield would f!ght anyone, usually beat them and almost always won in entertaining fashion. He had memorable wins over Mike Tyson, Larry Holmes, George Foreman, Ridd!ck Bowe, Michael Dokes and Dwight Muhammad Qawi.

4. Pernell Whitaker, 1984-2001, 40-4-1, 17 knockouts Whitaker was the best defensive f!ghter of his era and was practically unhittable at his peak. He racked up innumerable quality wins, but his best performance came when he was robbed against Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. Whitaker got a draw in a f!ght he appeared to easily win.

3. Larry Holmes, 1973-2002, 69-6, 44 knockouts Holmes was at his prime from 1976 through 1984. He had a terrific jab, a great chin and fought and beat most of the great heavyweights of his day.

2. Roberto Duran, 1968-2001, 103-16, 70 knockouts Duran's peak was from 1971 through 1985, and he may be the greatest lightweight who ever lived. Inconsistency, with losses to the likes of Kirkland Laing and Pat Lawlor, hurt him badly in his bid for the top spot.

1. Roy Jones, 1989-present, 55-8, 40 knockouts Jones was perhaps boxing's most physically gifted f!ghter in his prime. He was as fast as anyone in the sport, but he was an extraordinarily powerful puncher. He was rarely hit when he was in top form and he took out elite f!ghters like Bernard Hopkins, James Toney, and Mike McCallum in his heyday. He's hung on far, far too long and is a remnant of the great he was, but that doesn't take away from what he did when he was at his best.
