    Eubank v Saunders
    Smith v Saunders
    Canelo v Eubank
    Andrade v Saunders
    Smith v Ryder 2
    Ryder v Eubank

    good healthy division there domestically and international fights for UK fighters (although Smith will probably go up).

    What do you want to see next?

    I think Smith confirmed he is moving up to 175.

    A lot will depend on whether Saunders can recover properly. It looks like his entire face is damaged, not just the orbital bone. Looks like a broken cheekbone potentially too. He might not box again.

    If he does, Eubank v Saunders rematch at 168 is the best fight for him.

    Canelo will beat Plant and when he does he needs to show the gumption to go up to 175 and challenge Bivol and Beterbiev. If he doesn't do that anything else he does is pointless. He quite clearly destroys Andrade, Golovkin and Eubank (although Eubank would go the distance IMO).

    A good option for a Saunders comeback would be Rocky Fielding.

    I agree with Eubank. One thing we see with Canelo is low output but huge amounts of power shots. Eubank has got the engine that Saunders hasn’t so I think he can keep himself busier and away from a lot of the shots and nick rounds here and there.

    Canelo beats Bivol for me, Beterbiev could be too far though.

    Beterbiev is definitely THE fight. For me, after Joshua-Fury it’s probably the one fight I’d like to see more than any other realistic match up.

    If Canelo took that on, drugs or no drugs, it would be ultimate bravado.

    Depending on BJS health after the eye injury (we saw the impact orbital bone injury had on Brooks decline). I would back a fully fit BJS against anyone else outside of Canelo at SMW. Be it Plant or Benevidez or if Eubank or Andrade step up.

    Not for me. I can see it being similar to first fight, although I reckon it would be Wider.

    Eubank struggled when he fhas stepped up and fought technical boxers with high ring IQ such BJS and Groves.

    He didn’t really struggle though against Saunders did he?

    Saunders on the other hand struggles with conditioning and pace. Eubank second time around would set that from the off and Saunders would gas.

    I think Saunders retires

    But if he does comeback he fights a stiff first as he needs to see how he gets on with that damaged eye.

    We can all see that Father Time hasn’t been kind to him. His foot speed just wasn’t there, he is noticeably slower now.

    Canelo didn’t have any difficulties in landing the body shots or getting him onto the ropes throughout the fight.

    Saunders should retire.

    Hes levels above these other bums, whats the point in him beating smith or eubank except money.

    Either rematch canelo or go to 160, take over there and force canelo to come down to face him at his best weight.

    But hes not getting any younger, hes probably on the decline and would really have to be dedicated to go back to 160 i dont think he has that drive so may as well retire. Look what happened to brook when he tried to fight on after having his face caved in, will never be the same.

    Unfortunately for billy he was too inactive over the last few years and should have been in this position at 28 where he can come again, unfortunately time waits for no man and its over for him.
