Boxing News Power List in full from 1 to 50 – who is top and where do Fury and Joshua land?

When the hugely respected publication Boxing News revealed their power list of the sport’s most influential people a few days ago, our interest was piqued.

This is an incredible game, one where often the politics and deal making outside of the ring claim as many column inches as the punches thrown inside the ropes.

Promoters are often personalities just as big as the fighters (yes, you Eddie Hearn) while those sanctioning bodies also have a massive say on who fights who each year.

The fight game has never been as exciting as it is now, with the big fights we’ve craved for so long at last being made. So what about the personalities behind the headlines?

Last week we told you that Saudi General Entertainment Authority Chairman Turki Alalshikh – the man behind all that huge investment in the sport right now – is top at #1. And that Queensberry Promotions chief Frank Warren (#4) is ahead of his great rival Hearn (#5).
