Shawn Porter and Terence Crawford have been two of the top breakouts stars of 2014. They've both defended world titles with dominant stoppages of former champions.
Gennady Golovkin has been one of the most exciting knockout artists of the past two years. Few fighters have excited fans more than Triple G.
By the end of the year, at least one of the three could be a consensus pound-for-pound top-10 star.
Top-10 lists are ultimately based on opinion, so naturally they vary widely. But there is generally widespread consensus about most of the names, with the real debate focused on the bubble between slots seven and 20.
The fighters on this list have the potential to move off the bubble soon.
