Default Who would you want to see on The Gloves are off?

I found last nights show pretty entertaining, if only they had James Toney and Nigel Benn on as well, that would have very interesting. The format of the show is pretty good, I like the fact you get to hear ex champions asking questions that most journalists wouldn't get away with.

Which boxers would you want to get on the show? Which combination would be the most value, insightful or entertaining?

Barrera, Marquez, Morales, Pacquiao and Naz spring to mind, just because of the quality of the fighters and animosity with some. Not sure with the language barrier it would work though.

I’m not being disrespectful here because these guys try hard to learn English (and I can’t speak any other language) but I feel having certain fighters on who don’t speak brilliant English would make for a bad show.

I remember when Barrera was on Ringside, I watched it because he’s a legend but it didn’t make great viewing because his English wasn’t very good. Floyd keeps saying he’s gunna come to the UK. I wouldn’t mind maybe a Floyd, Paulie, Cotto, Oscar, Mosley type table and maybe something with the 4 kings.

In a perfect world I’d like (and it’d be very easy to do I’d imagine) Vitali, Lewis, Tyson, Holmes, Bruno and say Holyfield?

The heavy weights would be pretty interesting, especially if Tyson's envolved, I'd actually throw Haye in there not because he's on the same level, just because he's current and can be quite verbal. Actually Tyson Fury would be great value

Swap Collins with Benn and Woodhall with Toney and I reckon that would have been near on perfect. Probably a punch up thrown in for good measure too.

I wish sky would stop spending their boxing budget on these shows, they're not really necessary. The gloves are off, Ringside, that one with Khan/Ogogo/Froch/Haye, just a waste of money that would be better spent on good fights.

Stick James Toney in there and it wouldn't have worked, it would have kicked off.
