Lightbulb Top 25 Boxing Prospects for 2009 and Beyond ...from About.com

Many of boxing's biggest names and box office attractions - are nearing the ends of their careers. Oscar De La Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Roy Jones Jr., Felix Trinidad and Fernando Vargas should all retire based on their recent performances (though several will undoubtedly fight on). Shane Mosley, Marco Antonio Barrera, Antonio Tarver, Vernon Forrest and Winky Wright are nearing the end. And how much longer can Joe Calzaghe and Bernard Hopkins defy father time?
So who will comprise the next generation of boxing superstars? Some current stars are still young enough to remain headliners for years to come: Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Paul Williams, Ricky Hatton and Kelly Pavlik all appear to have plenty of miles left in their respective tanks. The tougher question is which young fighters will make the difficult transition from talented prospect to true star?
