This bloke could be ideal - Roberto Bolonti

Well you need to look at some different things. First of all Hearn has said he wants Tony to have a World title fight next year. But at the moment he is not ranked in the top15 with any organisation, although we expect that to change after the Miranda win which was also for the WBC inter something.

People will think that the European is the logical next step, but it's tied up right now with Gutkenekt fighting Braehmer in December. Murat is No.1 and is fighting Cloud for the IBF this year, so Bellew who is No.2 will be the mandatory next year.

I think we all agree he is beyond anybody else at British level so he should vacate that. What Hearn and Bellew wan't to do is get him higher in the ABC rankings while solidifying his European ranking.

Here our the current world ratings;


WBC
Champion Chad Dawson - NO
1. Mikkel Kessler - NO
2. Bernard Hopkins - NO
3. Eduard Gutknecht - Fights Braehmer in Dec
4. Denis Grachev - Fights Bute in Nov
5. Lucien Bute - Fights Grachev in Nov
6. Isaac Chilemba
7. Roberto Bolonti
8. Cornelius White
9. Ismayl Sillakh
10. Ryan Coyne
11. Andrezj Fonfara
12. Sergey Kovalev
13. Umberto Savigne
14. Pawel Glazewski
15. Jurgan Brahmer - Fights Gutkenekt in Dec


WBA
Champion - Beibut Shumenov - NO
1. Gayrat Amedov - NO
2. Ryan Coyne
3. Eduard Gutknecht - Fighting Braehmer Dec
4. Vyacheslav Uzelkov - Fighting Cleverly Oct
5. Cornelius White
6. Nicholson Poulard
7. Umberto Savigne
8. Braimah Kamoko
9. Togasilimai Letoa
10. Roberto Bolonti
11. Cedric Agnew
12. Marcus Oliveira
13. Isaac Chilemba
14. Nadjib Mohammedi
15. Sullivan Barrera


IBF
Champion - Tarvois Cloud - NO
1. NOT RATED
2. Karo Murat - Fighting Cloud
3. Gabriel Campillo - NO
4. Eduard Gutknecht
5. Isaac Chilemba
6. Yusaf Mack - Fighting Froch
7. Vyacheslav Uzelkov
8. Gregory Soszynski
9. Dawid Kostecki
10. Cornelius White
11. Denis Simcic
12. Roberto Bolonti
13. Jean Pascal - NO
14. Denis Grachen
15. Dimitri Sukhotsky - Lost to Cleverly


WBO
Champion - Nathan Cleverly - NO
1. Soulan Pownceby
2. Braimah Kamoho
3. Denis Simcic
4. Juergen Braehmer - Fighting Gutknecht in Dec
5. Robin Krasniqi
6. Eduard Gutknecht - Fighting Braehmer in Dec
7. Dustin Dirks
8. Bernard Hopkins - NO
9. Vyacheslav Uzelkov - Fighting Clev in Oct
10. Andrzej Fonfara
11. Cornelius White
12. Marcus Vinicius de Oliviera
13. Karo Murat - Fighting Cloud
14. Isaac Chilemba
15. Eleider Alvarez


Any of the guys in bold would work and I don't think would cost a fortune to get over to the UK to fight him. So Bellew can defend his international title agaisnt any of these guys until purse bids are called for the Gutknetkt vs Braehmer winner.

Of the guys listed I would favour.

Issac Chilemba - Top 10 with The Ring, Top 15 with all governing bodies. Just beat Miranda via 10 round UD. A step up from Miranda.

Andrzej Fonfara - Can be sold as "The man who retired Glen Johnson". Will improve Tony's european ranking. A step up. Top 15 with WBC & WBO.

Cornelius White - Top 10 with everyone. American. Holds the IBF International.

And who are you exactly?

Steeltown, what's wrong with suggesting Cloud?

Whats right with it mate?

not going to happen.

useless suggestion.

Ideas that are out there but are possible imo Roy Jones and Danny Green

Both names, both faded.

Decent oppertunities.

Campillo would be a good fight, Although a very risky and dangerous fight to make on a few months notice.

Fonfara would be another good fight coming off the win over Johnson he has name value and definitely a winnable fight.

Suggesting Cloud was pointless.
