1. Floyd Mayweather Jr - take May off, fight whoever makes noise at 147 between now and next June
2. Andre Ward - GGG, need a high profile high risk opponent before the world forgets about you entirely.
3. Manny Pacquiao - fight for that Senate seat
4. Roman Gonzalez - dunno
5. Tim Bradley - Chris Algieri, after he retires Manny
6. Juan Manuel Marquez - whoever he wants. Doesnt matter, people will watch
7. Carl Froch - Chavez Jr if TR and Jr can come to terms.
8. Wladimir Klitschko - doesnt matter. He will sell out a Euro stadium, and win
9. Guillermo Rigondeaux - LSC , only guy wanting fight that comes with a decent payday. TR/HBO wont touch him, he needs a SHO opponent that comes with a payday
10. Juan Francisco Estrada - not sure

Mine:

Floyd Mayweather Jr: Manny Pacquiao
will be the obvious one due to the insane amount of money it would generate.

Andre Ward: Move up to 175 and fight Adonis Stevenson. I think that Stevenson at 175 is an easy nights work for Ward, even in Canada. (Obviously if you're Ward's promoter, it's probably hard to convince him to do anything).

Manny Pacquiao: See Floyd Mayweather Jr

Roman Gonzalez:
The best fight in boxing that could and should be made Juan Francisco Estrada rematch.

Timothy Bradley: Pretty confident that Bradley could expose Keith Thurman, capture an interim title, in a fight that would obviously be picked up by HBO or Showtime and do well.

Juan Manuel Marquez: A fight with Marcos Rene Maidana would be an entertaining war. Maidana has a lot of exposure in big fights (Mayweather x2, Broner, Ortiz, Khan) and I think Marquez has a counter punchers field day.

Carl Froch: A big Vegas PPV fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Wladimir Klitschko: Provided he gets by Pulev, Tyson Fury has the kind of personality to sell fights and is fairly shit.

Guillermo Rigondeaux: Leo Santa Cruz is developing a following and would be an entertaining fight by Rigondeaux standards

Juan Francisco Estrada: See Roman Gonzalez

I would love to see Bradley-Thurman. Its one of those fights that probably cant be made, unfortunately. Not unless Thurman can somehow dump Haymon, and deal exclusively with Oscar. In which case, it probably would happen because both guys are badly in need of each other really.

Thurman needs a bigger name, Bradley needs a fresh face that has some value.

Garcia actually a good fight for Timbo, bigger name than Thurman too. I'm changing my pick to Danny Garcia.
