Cristiano Ronaldo, Conor McGregor and ‘Canelo’ Alvarez all feature in SI’s top ten fittest male athletes of 2018.

Sports Illustrated have gathered a group of experts to determine the most fittest athletes of 2018.

Mexican sensation ‘Canelo’ is ranked No.10 following his incredible performance vs. Gennady Golovkin, not to mention moving up in weight to claim the super-middleweight world title.

UFC’s Conor McGregor enters the list at No.9. While he lost his only fight in 2018, SI praise him for his ability to swing from MMA to boxing then back to MMA.

“Though he wasn’t victorious against Khabib Nurmagomedov in his much-anticipated return to the octagon, Conor McGregor’s ability to swing from UFC to boxing and then back again is a testament to his superior fitness. A multi-weight champion in UFC, the 30-year-old from Ireland packs precision and punishing power into his signature punch,” the publication states.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who completed a mega-transfer to Juventus in the summer of 2018, is the second most fittest athlete behind New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley.
