By Ken Hissner: Today boxers are not fighting as much as in the past, so to achieve 100 wins is a stretch. Places like Mexico and Thailand are still busy with events. For writers like myself thanks to Bob Arum’s Top Rank Boxing and Eddie Hearns Matchroom Boxing, I cover fights on ESPN+, DAZN (Zone), ESPN, Showtime, and Fox Sports (FS1) for the most part. Live events in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware in my vicinity are mostly non-televised club shows.
The following are boxers with quite a few wins but, for the most part, a long way from 100 wins.
