the way it's going, with feuding promoters, doesn't look good. They will line their pockets while depriving fans of the best possible matchups.

The biggest star will be Saul Alvarez.

Golovkin will be the middleweight Champion.

Andre Ward will be campaigning at LHW, still unbeaten, and be pondering a move to cruiserweight in search of fresh challenges.

Adrien Broner will be a champion at welterweight

Mikey Garcia will hold a belt at Lightweight.

GBP will be trying to set up Golovkin-Alvarez (Alvarez won't want it) or Alvarez-Broner (Broner won't want it) as far as big superfights are concerned.

If Arum hasn't passed away yet, there will be many more fights that haven't happened. If he has passed away, GBP and Top Rank will co-promote once more.

Yeah, call me back when Russell Jr. fights someone with a pulse.

Martinez is the only person at Middleweight who can beat GGG. With him gone, there's not going to be anyone who can take the belt from him.

Saul Alvarez will be the cash cow in boxing. Andre ward will still be undefeated if dirrell doesn't get going

dirrell has no shot to beat ward, even on his best day. he doesn't pack enough power behind his shots. watch froch walk through his shots all night long. Ward will do the same except he'll also land something of significance... then the acting show will commence

Lomachenko P4P 1

Jose Ramírez and Felix Verdejo ww champions.

Broner SLW champion battles with european stars Berinchyk and Khan.

Gilberto Ramirez and Ward dominating SMW.

Chávez jr selling a lot and giving good fights, but not élite.

Canelo ppv King, epic batles with others champions at MW Golovkin, Castaño.

If Sotolongo deflects by that time, no2 or 3 p4p.

Batles at LW, García(Mickey), Oscar Valdés, Sta. Cruz, Pollito Ceja, Diaz jr etc.

In small categories probably will be that young japanese prospect Inoue, among others, maybe will start to see more chinese pros.

At HW, Joshua and Usyk will be fighting the new generation born in Rio 2016.

Yeah, who beats him, genius?

Quillin? Geale? I'm waiting. Pirog would pose some problems, but it's never even a guarantee if Pirog can stay healthy long enough to step into the ring anymore.

Triple G murks Quillin and Geale with ease, and slaughters Chavez Jr. as well, though Jr. won't stick around at Middleweight past his rematch with Martinez.

He has more power then people give him credit for. He has more power then ward. I still would take ward and ward would no doubt be the favorite. It just dirrell has the best chance of beating ward. I give dirrell about 35% chance of pulling the upset. Fight won't happen anytime soon though

I think it'll be the era of Golovkin, Lomachenko, and Broner

Please bump this in 5 years...

Some of these I sternly believe in, some of these are on the bolder side that I think are likely:

Ward and Donaire on the top of the P4P list for the majority of that time. Both talking about and nearing retirement, perhaps one of the two having retired by the 5 year mark unexpectedly.

Alvarez will be the "cash cow" with JCC Jr. still being a huge draw win or lose for TR. They will never fight. Jr. may be at LHW in 5-6 years. Alvarez is at MW but not facing anyone too deadly, perhaps Quillin is who he wins his title there from.

Broner is not undefeated, but in everyone's top 5 P4P. Probably lineal WW champ.

GB and TR are still at odds.

Abner Mares will technically be a "5 weight class titlist (at the least if counting "interims")." 118, 122, 126, 130, 135. As will Kazuto Ioka. 105, 108, 112, 118, 122.

Golovkin will be up at 168, having not gone undefeated as a MW.

Koki, Daiki, and Tomoki Kameda each win at least one more "title" from this moment thru five years.

Daniel Geale at this point is the biggest draw/moneymaker/etc. in recent or all time Australian boxing history.

Gary Russell Jr. and Mikey Garcia at some point in the five years are regarded as consensus P4P top 10 guys.

Victor Ortiz has done one of these three: A) been in a FOTY, B) won a world title and defended at least once, or C) retired from jaw injury with legit reasoning.

Amir Khan, David Haye, Lucian Bute, Chad Dawson, and Alexander Povetkin are retired for good.

Thomas Oosthuizen and Edwin Rodriguez each win a title at LHW, or at least fought one of the top titlists.

Gamboa will not have better than a 3.3:1 W:L ratio from this point thru 5 years, or will be retired.

Kelly Pavlik will have returned from retirement for at least one fight.

Bradley will have spent at least some time as the top WW in the world.

Two of Fury, Price, Jennings, and Wilder will have won a HW strap over the next 5 years.

Chakhiev will win a CW world title, and at this point will be a HW.
