The festive Holiday shutdown has barely registered with Dave Coldwell. Hard at work in his Rotherham base, making preparations for his charges dominated the majority of the Sheffield trainer’s Christmas schedule as both McDonnell brothers, Jamie and Gavin, kept sharp as they await confirmation of their upcoming tasks.
2015 was a stellar year for the Coldwell stable and one of boxing’s busiest campaigners is hopeful that 2016 can bring even more success.
“It’s a mad one as I began 2015 with only Tony Bellew but ended up doing a lot more,” reflects Coldwell. “The Jamie McDonnell situation was unexpected but the pair of us work so well together and that’s been evident by the results we’ve had so far as the Tomeki Kameda fights were hard fights and we were totally up against it.

2015 went out with a bang in a far flung corner of the globe, Japan to be exact, as a flurry of world title bouts took place in the Land of the Rising Sun.
It all started on Tuesday at Tokyo's Ariake Colosseum where the planet's top super flyweight, Naoya Inoue, was in full destructive glory mode despite being out of the ring a full year.
The 22 year old Yokahama resident, Inoue, 9-0 (8), made the jump from Japanese to OPBF to WBC light flyweight champion in just eight months and after a successful WBC defense, bypassed flyweight to challenge reigning WBO super fly king Omar Andres Narvaez in December, 2014.
Inoue lived up to his nickname "Monster" by shredding the durable southpaw Argentine champion, who was made to finally look 39 years of age as his masterful defensive tactics were of no use against the rampaging Japanese, who KO'd the champion in just two rounds.
Stepping up to the challenge of facing Inoue on Tuesday was seasoned 32 year old Filipino Warlito Parrenas, 24-7-1 (21), who holds the WBO Oriental belt and was coming off a draw for the Interim WBO super fly title five months ago in Mexico against David Carmona.
Judging by his 21 stoppages during 24 victories, Parrenas can punch a fair bit but he didn't get a chance to use that power as Inoue battered the visitor to the canvas in the first frame and then again halfway through the second round when the contest was stopped by the referee.
The displays against Narvaez and Parrenas suggest that perhaps Inoue will have to jump up to bantamweight in order to find a real challenge but there are some interesting matchups at super fly that "Monster" could take part in.
Perhaps the most interesting contest would be a massive domestic showdown with 35 year old Tokyo scrapper Kohei Kono, 31-8-1 (13), who overcame two failed title bids to won the WBA super fly crown in 2012, only to be deposed in his first defense. More...

Lucas "Big Daddy" Browne has the opportunity to make history when he faces Ruslan Chagaev at the Akhmat Arena in Grozny, Chechnya, on March 5.
Australia has never had a world champion in the heavyweight division, but the 36-year-old from Sydney aims to change that by ripping the WBA crown away from the experienced Uzbek.
Browne has been the mandatory challenger for the title since February, but has had to wait patiently for a shot due to Puerto Rico's Fres Oquendo being granted a rematch with Chagaev. That return was scrapped in October when Oquendo suffered an injury. More...
