Default The British HW picture for 2013

We have the big 4 just like the premier league Haye, Price, Fury with Chisora a distant 4th, but still clear of the pack below.

We have former champions/contenders - Sprott, ***ton, Skelton, Harrison, McDemott & Rogan. When price vacates presumably two of these will fight for the belt.

Who else will be making a challenge - Dillian White was my pick to chase the tail of Chisora to get in the 4th place slot by the end of the year. The ban will put him out for the first half of the year. Hopefully he can come back with the same momentum. Ian Lewison looked good against Darch I would like to see him get revenge against Colin Kenna then a few fights later go for the Southern Area - He need to keep busy. Gary Cornish has been busy I would like to see him in a Celtic title fight against Darch, if Darch can pick up a couple of vicitories then go for Rogan. Colin Goldhawk does not live far from me and I will be keeping my eye out on his progress

The Joshua Tree could change the whole dimension if he turns over. If he signed with Eddie Hearn I would expect a Kal Yafai style apprenticeship, but at a whole new level.

When is AJ Taylor going pro? - I keep seeing him listed for debut, but the fights don't seem to happen

Interesting comments,colinsMrs,especially the 3rd paragraph.I think both Fury and Price could be knocking on the door next year,also that a fight between the two spoils it somewhat,would rather see that in another year,or two.Know a lot of people will disagree with this.I believe Joshua should turn pro,as apart from the gold he won a silver.A busy 3 years could see him where the other 2 are now if he adapts to the longer distances like say,Fury has.Somehow wouldnt be surprised if Derek inactive in 2013.

Harsh to put Haye at the level of Fury/Price. Haye's a seasoned pro now who's unified the cruiserweight division and won and defended a heavyweight title. I don't blame him for not wanting to concern himself with Fury/Price, they're rookies who have done **** all yet.

Hope Haye gets the Vitali fight.

I think Cornish will step it up but properly not until the last quarter of the year ....

Joe Joyce has been fighting in the WSB & looks like a decent prospect, hopefully he'll turn pro once the season finishes.

I completely missed off Towers. That says a lot of his potential. If he wins again and Price vacates you could put him in with any of a ***ton/McDermott/Harrison/Skelton winner for the vacant title bout. You would not be him anywhere near Price. It would be quicker than the Harrison stoppage

The tower may well have been demolished by Aussie Lucas Browne. But an earache may have saved his bacon.
