Default Which UK HW Will go Furthest?

Thoughts? The domestic HW scene is brillient at the moment!

Personally I think Chisora ATM but Dallas looks very good.

Fury... Nah. Not Fury.

Wheres the "David Haye" option?

I think ***ton or Chisora. Euro title or a losing world title shot in a "stay busy" fight for the champion.

Chisora seems like he's got the best attitude of the bunch...willing to fight them all and seems in a hurry to do so.

I'm not writing Fury totally off yet tho his next fight with McDermott will tell us a lot.

I think Chisora. Out of the novices (Price, Larry, Towers) Dallas could be the surprise package. Nothing more than domestic/fringe Euro level mind.

Fury or Chisora.

I've still got some faith in Fury..... but he really needs to knuckle down over the next 12 months, preferably with a new trainer.

Chisora is growing on me, slowly.... though beating Williams isn't a great indicator at this stage, though his win over ***ton gets better in light of two KO wins over Rogan.

I'd take all three of them against Harrison.

Haye stopped being a prospect 10 fights ago

Was tempted to put in Big John McDermott but he has had over 30 fights so...

Strictly prospects.

I look at the domestic British scene, and hark back top the glory days of Quarless, Currie, Banjo and Pearce... (OK, things are not quite that bad!!!)

I know every boxing supporter gets attracted to the Heavyweights, but come on we are not being moths attracted to lights here, but flies attracted to you know what!

Listen, after 5 years of watching the K Bros im hoping for any type of HW we can get.

Besides domestically I think this division is the deepest in british boxing if you ask me, such a sudden burst of these tall HW's after having none for so long.

i think chisora will go the furthest because he is well-rounded - as in, average at everything. he won't ever get his mits on a world title, nor should he even get a sniff of one really, and frankly winning the euro would be an achievement unless he fights a joker - which lets face it, is not impossible given its current incumbant.

also, when we're talking about fury's chances of how far he will get - you have to factor in not just his talent, but his promoter's ability to get him far.
