Enough with the hope

The fight's long overdue already

Donaire, ward and broner are likely to be the next big p4p names.

I'm more interested in who will be the next great heavyweight when wlad retires. Price, Fury, Pulev, Adamek or Arreola I reckon.

I hate the fact that Tim Bradley and Andre ward will be fighting for the #1 p4p spot, I guess it goes to show that the #1 and #2 p4p only meet around each others weight class once in a lifetime and this time they didn't chose to fight each other

Tim Bradley fighting for the number1 p4p spot is a sad day for boxing people who say boxings in good health should just look at that, Bradleys a nice guy,good heart and chin but battling for p4p no1 is a sad reflection on modern boxing.

None of those guys have the makings of being a great heavyweight. Especially not Adamek and Arreola. It'll be a period of a lot of exchanging belts, but no dominant Klitschko-like force.

Time will tell but just consider that almost a decade ago wlad was seen as a joke and vitali's failed brother. Who would have thought he'd break the top 15 list of great heavyweights.

I'm not saying one will be great, I'm saying I'm looking forward to seeing the situation develop.

Thats a very reasonable comment. The problem with the end of the last generation is that guys got too entrenched in their positions as top money earners. This generation is abunch of good fighters all relatively at the same place in their careers and one of them is going to have to go out and grab the glorry. I'm going to enjoy sitting back and watching it happen. May we look forward to 3 or 4 years of good fights and guys putting it all on the line.

I agree with this, you just never know who will be the next star. Haye would destroy them all though.

yeah I imagine there'll be a bit of a hiatus whilst the belts are fractured I just hope one man stands above the rest like Tyson did in the 80s.

it is a sad day, he couldnt convincingly beat an old Pacquiao and he has no chance against Mayweather either but he will be the one to probably take the #2 p4p spot

it will be an era with good competetive fights (if they happen) but so far none of these guys have the charisma to keep boxing under the spotlight like Mayweather, Pacquiao, Margarito, the Mexican trio and other did
