The only one on that list Geale beats is Abraham. We are talking prime for prime right?

There is so many great matchup here. I would say Sergio beats Gman, Julian Jackson, Abraham, Duran, possibly also Trinidad it's so hard to say.

Pretty close to what I was thinking. Except I think Daran beats Sergio. But Sergio beats Trinidad I still can't forget the boxing lesson fellow southpaw winky Wright gave him.

Put Pavlik & Taylor on the list

Hopkins beats all current Middleweights IMO but Hopkins v Martinez would be very interesting...

I'm not sure Duran should be in a 160lb line up but take Abraham out of that list & not one of todays 160lb champs beats anyone on that list.......no one!

I did say take Abraham off that list & you honestly reckon that Sergio who got rocked by Chavez Jnr would stand up & beat Tito..........dreaming mate.

Intersting match ups Prowler with Geale v Joppy & Holmes.........I reckon he would be with a good chance to beat both but Joppy did have good power & Geale does get tagged a lot.
