I know the Gavin hype has died down but it's ridiculous to omit him from the list.

Kal Yafai, even though he's not on the list. Kid is the real deal.

Yeah, i'm really excited about the lad. In fact, i don't recall ever being so excited about a British prospect.

Obviously there are the usual question marks surrounding him as any other proespect (punch resistance, mentality, heart, how he reacts to adversity etc), but he really can be something very special if he has those attributes imo.

I think hes had an absolutely blinding start, hope he continues and does well. We may well get to see a really good breed of pros out of the AMs we've been producing over the last few years.

From that list I have high hopes for Price. I think Fury will do well but it really depends on his mental state he seems to have some issues which can be a fighters undoing. Hope he does well anyway he make me laugh and comes across as a decent bloke most of the time the "no ones going to die you mug" from the johnson presser had me in stitches.

Price has that game changing power and skills so even if he does come unstuck at the top end due to durability issues I think he'll always be able to do well.

Completely forgot about Gavin while making the list tbh, definitely worth a shout as are Yafai and Quigg.

I'll say Frampton but its a shot in the dark.

The talent and skills is not the hard thing to judge, its the man and the fighter. Only insiders can give real insight into what might happen. Alot of these trainers, fighters etc already know from sparring that their chin can be broken, they don't like it to the body, they lack the dedication, they are just in it for a big pay day, they will struggle with a loss etc

I'm sure 80% of this forum would have once hated on Khan and have said he'll retire following a brutal loss, he won't make it etc BUT the reality is he is a fighter who wants to fight the best and go to war. The latter is a flaw in his game but subsequently he will go to the drawing board time and time again the pursuit of perfection. Why? He is already a millionaire, its not about the money, its about the man he is!
