After compiling my list of the 10 best American debuts it got me thinking, what current champions have never fought in America.
This list is the 10 best champions to never fight in America. Normally, a fighter who never makes the move to the U.S. is looked down upon.
It is thought he doesn’t want to fight the best fighters and just wants to hold onto a title. Sometimes that is true and sometimes it is totally wrong.
The lighter weight fighters have no reason to come to America. They won’t make the big money here so there is no need to. Some fighters will make better money by staying at home.
There are many reasons why fighters don’t come to America. On this list you will find three fighters from Thailand, two from Germany, two from South Africa, and one from Panama, Nicaragua, and Slovenia.
You will also find three strawweight fighters and one fighter apiece from the flyweight, jr. bantamweight, cruiserweight fighter, middleweight, jr. featherweight, bantamweight, and welterweight divisions.
