ANDAt present, at the end of 2021, four are the most outstanding Spanish boxers, whom we could call the Fantastic Four of our . They are the brightest and most prominent fighters on the lists of world organizations.

The featherweight world champion is Alicante Kiko martnez, a former world champion of super bantamweight and former European champion in both categories, he occupies the privileged place in the International Boxing Federation (IBF). Our only world champion at the moment.

The barcelons Sandor martn, former European super lightweight champion, who after his great victory against Mikey Garcia occupies a position of honor in the four world organizations, 4 in the World Boxing Organization (WBO), 5 in the World Boxing Association (WBA), 7 in the World Boxing Association (WBA). World Boxing Council (WBC) and 13 in the IBF.

The cntabro Sergio garca, former European superwlter champion, is number 2 in the WBC, 7 in the WBA and 11 in the WBO, while the current European superwlter champion, the Vizcano Kerman Lejarraga It is number 3 in the WBA.

That is to say, any of these last three boxers could dispute the title of the world at any time by being classified among the first fifteen of each corresponding organism.

They are our star pgiles of a year in which the brooch can be put by Sergio García himself, if he expires on December 5 at Sebastian Fundora for the WBC world tie, and Kerman Lejarraga, if he retains his European crown next Friday the 3rd against the English Jack flatley.

We do not forget the canary Samuel Carmona, that although he does not have the palmars of the previous ones, his amateur career and some notable victory of his still short professional career have given him that the IBF has him in position 8 and the WBA in position 9, within the weight category fly.

In 2022 we trust that some more Spanish pgile will join the world elite and those mentioned will maintain their aspirations.

And of course, that women’s boxing also retains its high rank, with our four European champions, Joana pastrana (minimum weight), Joana surez (light fly weight), Melania Sorroche (bantamweight) and Mary Romero (super bantamweight), plus former champion Mriam Gutirrez, who on December 18 will face one of the greatest pgiles of all time, the Puerto Rican Amanda serrano, after having faced a year ago the great Irish Katie Taylor.
