3 Fighters Who Defined Boxing For This Decade

As we get to the end of another decade, we reflect on the fighters who helped define the past 10 great years in boxing.

There were three boxers in particular who made an impact from 2010 to 2019. One was a bright, young star in Canelo Alvarez, the four-division titleholder, current face of the sport and the highest-paid fighter. Within the decade, he has had the entirety of his career at a top level and has been in one massive fight after another. The other two, inextricably linked by their rivalry, are all-time legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. They also dominated the previous decade and continued to have huge fights the past 10 years, including their colossal showdown in 2015.

Dan Rafael, Steve Kim and Timothy Bradley Jr. share their thoughts.
