Confidence, courage, and the ability to fight have all been a magnet for females in much of the animal kingdom since the dawn of evolution.

And hardly any athletes embody these qualities like boxing athletes.

Combined with great looks and strong personalities, some boxers can give Chris Hemsworth a run for his money.

So, recently at Total Shape, we decided to vote on the most charming male boxing athletes of our era.

We also asked our readers to weigh in to equalize some of our biases.

Here are the final results.

Top 20 Hottest Male Boxers

It's worth noting that this list was only based on looks and general appeal, not the boxer’s abilities in the ring.

20. Manny Pacquiao

Although Manny Pacquiao is currently inactive, the Filipino is one of the most loved boxers and among the most-watched fighters in the world.

He may not be six feet tall, but boxing fans love his good looks, soft-spoken nature, and generosity through his charitable endeavors back in his home country, the Philippines.

Hardly any boxer can brag of having more than 70 bouts; Pacman has 72 bouts under his belt and only lost 8 [1].

In addition, he holds the record of titles in eight different divisions and is a contender for the best pound-for-pound warrior of all time alongside his greatest rival, Floyd Mayweather.

19. Gennady Golovkin

Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin, or Triple G, is a Kazakhstani professional boxer standing at five feet and 10 inches.

11. Sergio Martinez

The boxer has racked up several belts, including the WBC super welterweight and the unified WBC, WBO, and Ring magazine.

Of the 60 bouts he has participated in, he came out victorious an overwhelming 55 times, 30 by way of knockout. This has made him one of the greatest warriors in his weight class [9].

All this should not fool you into trading jabs with this handsome British hunk.

Gilberto Ramirez is an unbeaten professional boxer from Mexico.

His record so far stands at 44 fights, 44 wins, and no losses [17].

Aside from his fierceness in the ring, Gilberto Ramirez is one of the hottest boxers in the world, a quality that has made him a favorite among boxing lady fans.

Sanchez has everything most ladies want in a man: a slim and muscular body tone, an ideal height of over six feet, and a perfect rectangular-shaped face with sharp facial features.

On top of that, his fair skin, dark hair, and squinty eyes complement his good looks.

2. Anthony Joshua

Not even a renaissance sculptor could’ve chiseled the perfectly ripped body of Anthony Joshua.

If he weren't a boxer, he would fit in perfectly as a bodybuilder.

The British heavyweight talent also stands at over 6 feet, has sharp facial features, and has a perfect jawline.

His rise to stardom is just as breathtaking as his looks.

He began as an amateur boxer, and after emerging victorious in several of England's premier boxing events, AJ shocked the local boxing community by turning down a £50,000 cheque to go pro, saying he wasn't in it for the money [18].

He would go on to win the Olympic Gold medal in 2012 and turn pro in the consequent years, a feat that propelled him to boxing stardom and £115 million in his bank account.

Anthony wore the undefeated heavyweight title for a while before losing to Andy Ruiz and recently to Oleksandr Usyk.

The former heavyweight champion has three losses against 24 wins.

1. David Haye

The title of hottest male boxer goes to David Haye.

Like Muhammad Ali, the Haymaker, as he’s popularly known, comes with a bulky physique and bay boy beauty that has many boxing-loving ladies swooning over him.

He got it from his parents; a black Jamaican father and a white English mother.

He seems to borrow from the best of both races.

His breakthrough in boxing came in the David versus Goliath fight pitting him against heavyweight kingpin Vladimir Klitschko.

Although he’s had an entertaining and illustrious career, it was also plagued with injury. He’s yet to return to the ring since 2018.

Who Is Your Best-Looking Boxer?

You may not have control over your height and facial structures, but you can work on your physique to turn a few heads like David Haye.

To achieve this, you need to put more time and effort into your workouts.

Adding a pre-workout supplement can also help you speed up the results.
