AMERICAN BOXER TOP TWENTY


The purpose of each year's American Boxer Top Twenty is to present the Top Boxers of the past year so you have a chance to compare them all in the same ring at the same time.

So be sure and mark your calendar Wednesday May 10, 2023. Dress up a bit, and come see the Top 20 Boxers of 2022 (and some past winners) in one ring at one time. It's a glamorous and exciting way to see the best Boxers and it's free!
