In recent times, Northern California has enjoyed a Golden Age in the professional boxing ranks. With the rise of four current world titleholders, numerous contenders, and tantalizing prospects, fight towns like Oakland to Sacramento and Fresno to Salinas have experienced a revival.
As a result, our local fans have been left wanting more after the media coverage of our world champions. They want to know who’s next in line. In other words, who are the fighters to watch in NorCal?
CSNBayArea.com sought the most comprehensive answer to this question, so we gathered ten other media members who attend the local shows, scour the gyms, and have their ears closest to the heart of the Northern California fight scene in order to get their collective take on the region's best pugilists regardless of weight class.
We also invited three die-hard fans to participate in the poll because your opinion is important to us. Let’s face it. You buy the tickets, you buy the pay-per-views, and most of all, you keep this sport alive.
For a full list of the voters as well as the rules, check out my blog.
So who’s number one? Without further ado, CSNBayArea.com presents the 1st Official Northern California Pound-for-Pound Poll results.
