    Martin
    Ajagba
    Yoga
    Sanchez
    Dubois should spend more time with McGuigan before stepping up again

    Why would you have Dinu there? Why not even Takam?

    Yeah Dinu is a stupid choice to be honest. I'll replace him with Takam.

    Whyte vs Hunter - the two most deserving of a world title shot.

    Parker vs Joyce - the next two most deserving of a title shot.


    Ruiz vs Martin - two former champs needing a a decent win to get back title shot contention.

    Hrgovic vs Yoka - two young fighters with very strong amateur background and history that need to step up in level of opponent.

    Povetkin vs Pulev - one more pay day for these two in a decent fight before they retire.

    Takam vs Ortiz - one more fight for these guys before they retire but their not as good as Povetkin or Puelv. I'd slightly favour Takam in this.

    Bakole vs Chisora - would be an entertain fight that I'd favour Bakole.

    Hughie Fury vs Kayabel - intriguing fight.

    Helenius vs Sanchez - intriguing fight.

    Dubious vs Wallin - Dubois is young and just coming off a bad injury so putting him a easy confidence building fight against Wallin.

    Babic vs Kownacki - certainly not the most skilled fighters but would be extremely entertaining.

    Really good matchups and justifications. I'd tune into all of those for sure. But sadly we won't get any of those.

    Whyte Ruiz would be a great match to go alongside AJ Usyk and Fury Wilder.

    It's a 50/50 fight IMO but I'd bet on Whyte if I had to.

    I'm immature at the best of times but this was really funny from Whyte to Ruiz:

    If Wilder loses put him in with Makhmudov.
    With a rematch clause for good measure.

    Whyte
    Ruiz

    Whyte wins a close but clear decision.


    Parker
    Ortiz

    unless Ortiz is finally acting his age I don't see Pakrer winning. Ortiz wins on points.


    Joyce
    Hunter

    A close fight with Joyce's size and relentless pressure being too much for Hunter and stops him in the championship rounds.

    Hrgovic
    Povetkin

    Hrogvic by KO before the 5th round.

    Martin
    Kabayel

    Only seen Kabayel fight once and Martin twice. I'd say it's a pick em fight. I'd side with Martin.


    Wallin
    Ajagba

    I am not operating Wallin off the back of the Fury fight, I just don't rate Ajagbe. Wallin by KO.

    Dinu
    Yoka

    Yoka by KO early doors.

    Kwonaki
    Sanchez

    Sanchez by KO around 8th or 9th round.

    Dubois
    Chisora

    Dubois scores a KO as Chisors tires from a fast and relentless start.
