Macca already has a title.

Matthews has potential as long as he's clean.

Moore seems to be getting hyped up because of the Macklin fight, but did Macklin do anything special to be so hyped off?

I think Haye can do it and I hope he does as I am a massive fan.

Haye has a good chance as well as Andy Lee.

Alex Arthur will win a world title, and not just a WBO interim title

I think Arthur will be our next title holder, he'll inherit the wbo whens he wins the interin belt.

I think Haye will be our next legit champion, i realy fancy him against Mormeck.

Arthur should win on Satudary and I do not see Guzman defending so he must be the best bet at the moment.

Inevitable really he came from a very good amateur club

he stopped Chirkov with a brutal bodyshot in just one round and Chirkov had beaten Julio Cesar Vasquez .

Other than that Macklin's record doesn't show how good he really is .
I've never seen a man more determined to win a fight than Macklin against Moore , not Hatton against Tszyu , not anyone . Macklin fought like a man possessed(possibly an overused term but in this case it's true) , he seemed to be able to keep coming forward and throwing punches when he should have been falling to the canvas Wladamir Klitschko style(v Brewster) .

For Moore to beat a man of that skill who was prepared to give his life and then some shows what a win it was for Moore .
Moore is clearly above domestic level and I feel he's at or above European level . Whether he can make the next step is questionable , but he's in with a shout .

Haye and Froch are close to being locks, I think.

Then it gets tricky. I think Arthur will fall marginally short. I don't count Macca, i think he's pretty shite and should not have been awarded the WBO belt.

Don't rule out Michell and Khan. Khan has a great will to win also and is more than just a hype job. The chin might ultimately let him down, but he has the talent, seemingly the power, and definitely the ability to adapt.

Didn't Jones have Moore all the over the place though? Moore seems Gatti like to me.

Yes but Moore has come on in leaps and bounds since then , and boxes much more smartly nowdays(he was a bit of a Gatti back then) .

He did outbox him the first and second time(up to the DQ) , in the 3rd fight it didn't really go well for Jamie(in honesty he was getting hammered) but he stayed in there weathered the storm and eventually took Jones out .

I think Moore and Macklin will both prove themselves above the level they are currently fighting at .

I know It was only a tune up fight but Macklin did look better last night going back to Middleweight, much quicker and sharper on his feet.

What was the first Moore Vs Jones fight? All I was Moore stepped In because someone else pulled out I think.

A real let down.
