List Rules Vote for the top boxing or kickboxing anime (in your opinion of course). Don't downvote a series if you haven't seen it!

Get your gloves ready, because we're ranking all boxing anime from best to worst on the list below you. Of course everyone considers Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Spirit in English) to be the best boxing anime of all time, but how do other shows rank next to it? Ashita no Joe, a sad anime about a boy who learns to box after running away from an orphan home, is also considered a top boxing anime. Another great show is Ganbare Genki, where a young boy vows to follow in his father's footsteps as a great boxer. Even though this is boxing anime list, we're still including Baki the Grappler since there is a boxer on the show. Kickboxing anime shows are included here as well.

Vote for your favorites on this list of boxing anime, no matter how mainstream or well known they are. Trailers and clips are available next to each boxing show name, so preview them right here on this page before committing to the whole series.
