George Groves, apart from 'injuries' his career seems to going in the right direction, he's got skills, determination and has decent power

Groves has got a great test this weekend. Hopefully he shines because whilst I think he's still quite a raw prospect, I can see him going far.

I think he's got a maturity which will help him and he's already proved he can handle the big occasion against DeGale. He still makes a lot of mistakes but once he polishes up his style abd sticks to it, I think he can have a great future in a tough Super Middleweight division.

I think either Price, Brook or Groves.

Price and Groves have the potential to be great (even if their fighting graveyard fighters now) and Brook I think is ready to make the step up now. I'll bet my left bollock he beats Alexander.

Cleverly and Eubank Jr are just a joke, Kid Galahad it's too early to say. I'm not sold on Frampton yet and Tyson Fury and Billy-Jo Saunders I can't decide on.

Scott Quigg should get a mention on this list too as well I think, cracking little fighter IMO.

Slip, I think he moves well for such a big guy. He has the ability to box smart and stick to his gameplan, as evidenced by McDermott part 2 (if I remember correctly). He throws combinations, and has a strong will. He's already been though a few very tough situations and been able to come through them and win. I thought he had a very good start to his career because he was fighting frequently and was facing better opposition than most would at that stage of their career, and has a win over Chisora. These days he doesn't fight as frequently, but the guy has so much time on his side. They make fun of his shape, but every time you see him he looks in better shape than he did in the previous fight. Keep him away from twitter and he'll do well.

theres something about frampton im not sure what it is but i think he could be great

also billy joe could be really good, give him 12/18 months he be the num1 in britain

groves i think could be world champ if he gets the right fight

price will be one of the top heavy's when k2 have retired

Price

Although if Groves does well against Johnson, I'll start to believe he could become a big name in boxing.

Frampton I reckon... Brook and Price/Fury close behind. Don't see the big appeal with Groves, good power and strong willed but chinny and quite reckless imo.

Lol at Billy Joe Saunders joint leading the pole. I'm sure he will never go beyond the Macklin or Barker level. I also think Brook will be found wanting against Alexander. Out of Price, Groves and Frampton, I'm not sure. Price might have the most high-profile career because he's a heavyweight, but, whether he will be the most successful, I'm not sure.
