By the late 19th century, boxing as we know it today was in full swing, and by the 20th century it was attracting millions of fans and moving a lot of money.

In this gallery, we pay tribute to the greatest boxers to ever step foot in the ring, and what exactly made them so good. Click on to get to know the greatest boxers of all time.
