Canelo Alvarez hopes to one day crack this list.

Mexico. A nation proud of its fighting tradition and even prouder still of the men it can call warriors in the ring. 

Mexican fighters aren't like normal fighters. They are supposed to be willing to go into the ring and leave every shred of themselves in it. To keep punching until the final bell, to accept three punches for every one landed and to do it for love of the game.

This past weekend featured two huge boxing events, on Mexican Independence Day weekend, featuring two men who hope to follow in this proud tradition.

And while Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. are not yet able to be mentioned among their nation's all-time elite, both hope to one day earn the highest praise a Mexican fighter can hope to attain: Warrior.

These 10 men have achieved this honor. They have earned the respect of their fans and their country. They have earned the right to be called warriors. These 10 men are the greatest fighters the proud fighting nation of Mexico has ever produced.
