The world’s best boxers all have one very interesting thing in common: their records are incredible. Floyd Mayweather, Andre Ward, Sergey Kovalev, Gennady Golovkin, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzales, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – all of these fighters have more than 30 professional wins, and none of them have more than one professional loss.
This might seem like a coincidence, but it isn’t one.
All of the aforementioned boxers are incredibly talented and deserving of all the praise they receive – there is no refuting this. Their jaw-dropping records, however, cannot be attributed entirely to their talent. The massive win-loss disparity on their records can also be attributed to very favorable matchmaking in the salad days of their respective careers.
