2. Jorge Masvidal
‘Gamebred’ is currently enjoying a career renaissance. The welterweight star has knocked out two of the game’s most vocal athletes in the last year. He finished Darren Till in front of a London crowd. Then he sensationally destroyed Ben Askren by flying knee knockout. But this former streetfighter has brilliant hands.
Masvidal famously fought Kimbo Slice’s protege Ray as a young man in a street fight. He’s a very technical boxer with excellent timing. In another life, he could have made it as a professional. But so far, his only pro fight came against a 1-11 opponent. Of course, he won.
