Tim Tszyu is unblemished in 24 pro fights and the current WBO super-welterweight champion. He is also the son of Kostya, a hard-hitting former junior-welterweight world champion famous for knocking out Zab Judah in two rounds in 2001.


2) Chris Eubank Jnr

As divisive as his father, Chris Eubank Jnr, a former British middleweight champion, has achieved plenty in his 36-fight pro career and remains on the hunt for one of the major world titles. His father never won a British title but did defend the WBO super-middleweight title 14 times.

4) Conor Benn

A controversial figure in the sport due to some recent performance-enhancing drug issues, Conor Benn is nevertheless unbeaten in 23 pro fights.

9) Aadam Hamed

Aadam Hamed made his professional debut in Poland last August and received plenty of promotion and hype ahead of it on account of his famous surname. His father, Naseem, was once the best featherweight in the world and arguably the hardest puncher the nine-stone division has ever seen.
