    1. Errol Spence - I dont think anyone is stopping this guy at 147, once he cleans it out he needs to go to 154 and find a challenge. I'd like to see him fight crawford this year.

    2. Gervanta Davis - I really want to see this kid shine against real competition, just hoping he isn't like Zab, i feel like Zab had the potential to be the guy of his day and this kid does too, but its the mindset and the discipline that will make the difference. I just want to see him take a good fight, like Garcia.

    3. Joshua/ Wilder - love both these guys, they are brining the heat to the heavyweights, so hoping they fight.

    Everyone here seems to rate Spence highly on here, I am not sold on him yet.

    Frampton beats Donaire and challenges LSC in Ireland in the summer.

    Selby fights and beats Josh in Leeds and sets up a big fight with Frampton.

    Eubank Junior beats Groves and Smith to win the tournament.

    In no particular order

    George Groves - He is slowing a bit but he is punishing when it comes to landing shots. His jab if for real and if he knows how to finish a hurt fighter. If he was Truax DeGale would be dead.

    Alexander Usyk - His story is motivational and he has legit skills.

    Eubank Jr - He has backed up his career with actual talent and he has avoided being defined by his father. I actually think that anyone that fights him may be in trouble.

    Anthony Joshua - hope he unifies with Parker and then fights another top 5 HW or two. Three fights in 2018 would be ideal.


    Sergey Kovalev - hope he fights three times, including a unification with the winner of Bivol-Barrera


    Filip Hrgovic - hope he remains active with 6 or 7 fights, and takes a step up to fight a top 20 HW by the end of the year

    Pretty hard for me to narrow it down to 3, but here goes:

    Mikey Garcia, beats Lipinets, Linares and Loma

    Oscar Valdez, beats Quigg, love to see him fight JoJo Diaz and then unify with the Santa Cruz/ Mares winner.

    Usyk, beat Breidis, Gassiev, then picks up the WBA title of Charr to set up 2019 at heavyweight.

    I'm a big Golovkin fan. I'd like to see him get some justice against Canelo and hope he doesn't suddenly get old.

    Loved PAC as well, but he is not really active now. Hugely admired Floyd's skills and composure.

    I think Crawford is excellent. For someone less mainstream check out Naoya Inoue.

    Loma might be special yet, but I need to see more of him.

    1. Billy joe Saunders
    2. Chris Eubank jr
    3. Errol Spence jr

    This are the type of fighters that would potentially make me pay to watch them fight.

    All different styles but these guys have the potential to dominate for the next 3-5 years and that's a potential 10-15 fights.

    He's more mainstream than some of my emerging favorites.

    With Kosei Tanaka moving to 112, a showdown with Daigo Higa is mouthwatering for me. Higa is seek and destroy, a little tank.

    Brian Carlos Castano already has Lara avoiding the high risk low reward bout.

    Hiroto Kyoguchi is another young Japanese wonderkind.

    Estrada is still one of my favs.

    Tete is finally getting some recognition.

    I really like Nery but the whole tainted meat thing has put a bit of a dampener on him.

    Daniel Roman is severely underrated.

    I think Regis Prograis marks his mark in 2018.

    Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Oleksandr Gvozdyk are the boogymen of their divisions.

    It's sad that 3 of the WBSS Cruiserweight semi finalists will have to lose. I hope they continue to get respect for challenging themselves and fighting the best.

    Sergey Kovalev: beat whoever is put in front of him but specifically beat any of Stevenson, Jack, Bivol, Beterbiev, Alvarez, Gvozdyk, or Barrera. Preferably two of them this year.

    Mikey Garcia: beat Lipinets and unify at lightweight. Fight Loma too if possible.

    Abner Mares: beat LSC, then the winner of Quigg and Valdez, then maybe Frampton.

    Off the top I might try 2 categories to get around just 3
    up and comers non 'champ'..

    Tugstsogt Nyambayar...real early and already 25 but I like this guy.
    Jamal James...took a bump vs Ugas but think he'll be fun to watch.
    Sergiy Derevyanchenko...ok he's on the older side but he's sitting on the cusp of 'it'. Tremendous skill set.

    Here now and taking names..
    Errol Spence jr
    Terrance Crawford
    Oscar Valdez

    Personal favs

    Sam Eggarito - hope to see him against Margarito, Carson Jones, Joe Pigford, Liam Smith or Khan. Hope to not see him against Brook.

    Zolani Tete - The Rigo that nobody knows. Hopefully Frank can get him a long overdue BIG fight. Burnett/Nery unifications would be terrific, McDonnel, Zhakiyanov, Warren or Solis. Just get him a bloody fight against a name (that nerds rate at least)

    Nonito Donaire - yeah, he's a bit too small for 126 and a bit past his best, however, he still possess one of the most lethal left hands in boxing (only second to Inoue). He turns Frampton into a drunk, then comes back to the UK for a unification with Quigg (after he KO's Valdez) or Selby (after he KO's Warrington).

    Elite/Mainstream favs

    Inoue - see Tete wishlist at bantam.

    Loma - hopefully he keeps pissing off the white man haters.

    Bivol - he will be regarded elite by the end of the year.

    I’m realising for the first time since I started following the sport in the late 80s I don’t actually have three favourite fighters active at the moment.

    I’d like to see Haye Bellew finish with a double knockout.

    Joshua Wilder in a Hearns Hagler type three round war.

    Fury get himself back in fighting shape - mentally as well as physically.

    In fact Fury probably my favourite if he can get back.
