The only one I think has no chance on that list is Chavez Jr. He was dominated by Sergio for 11 and a half rounds and his size helped him to a grandstand finish against Martinez.
When he sheds his middleweight skin and moves to 168 or 175 he won't enjoy such advantages. And he lacks the basic fundamentals to beat the top guys.
I didn't include Alvarez in my list as I think he's about to up his level of competiton and start to taste defeat.
I also agree with the other guy on Danny Garcia- a placeholder and he will have lost by the end of the year Khan or Mathysee.
Burns is a long shot but so was Froch a few years back and he's included in quite a few lists now.
