    I think there's a realistic chance of him beating anyone of them. I don't particularly like him, I thought he and his entourage were an absolute disgrace in the build up to the Selby fight, especially with what Selby had going on, but I can't deny that he's World Class

    I think Santa Cruz is there for the taking but he won’t get that fight. Beats Barry then Valdez unification. I can’t see anyone dealing with josh the way he came out against Frampton. Just my opinion could be totally wrong

    Unifies the division and goes down as one of the best British fighters in history. Hard work and belief in yourself pays

    He’s in his prime right now, I hope they strike while the irons hot and try to unify as he has the beating of all of those right now imo.
    I don’t want to see any easy defences against nobodies or him moving up in weight class anytime soon.

    He has more than a good chance of beating them all. They sky's the limit for Warrington.

    Warrington is a prime example of what can happen if you take the traditional route. He has grown at every level and I've doubted him all the time!

    I honestley wouldn't back against him atleast unifying but as somebody said he is in his prime and needs to strike now!
    His style doesn't age well.

    I think he beats Lomachenko. His style is all wrong for Loma. Notice how Arum has kept Loma away from pressure fighters since Salido, and Josh does pressure as well as anywon

    I think his mum passed during the build up.

    I think Warrington would beat Valdez and this old version of Rigo. He would lose on points to Russell and Santa Cruz though.

    Lee, and Andrew, lost their mum days before the fight. With all of that going on you would have thought his opponent to have more class than to get people to go after his taxi after the final press conference. Absolutely disgusting behaviour and unfortunately the fight was a year too late for Lee.

    Warrington has proven his quality though, he needs to get the big fights now rather than sit on his belt. To be fair to him it looks like he is doing that.

    Warrington's dad admitted that he wants nothing of Russell jnr. He'll have to wait for the others after Galahad knocks him out.

    I think he beats Valdez and LSC but Gary Russel Jr is underrated and it's a really tough fight. Rigondeaux is a complete unknown quantity now but he is aging and would be a great scalp. If he could beat 2 of the 4 a superfight with Lomachenko in the UK is not out of the question.
