I would like to see Pulev-Povetkin in fact it's the most logical and exiting fight. Pulev-Chagaev will be one sided at this point IMAO. Matthysse Maidana at 140 would be awesome

Leon with all due respect pull back a little bit. Guys are going a bit too much into the top five.

These fights are discussed quite a bit I made this thread to do the smaller fights.

Really nice thread. I've been wondering about this for a while. My boxing knowledge is not great so it's going to be really interesting to follow this thread and see what you all have to say about the more mid-range stuff going on right now.

Decarie vs. Thurman? Both guys were featured on HBO under cards, makes sense. I know in Thurman's opinion that would be a huge step down considering he was calling out all the big names after his last bout, but I would like to see it.
