    I'd say... pretty much all of them ?

    I mean, except Usyk. But every weight class should have their tournament where everyone faces everyone.

    I wanna see all the other YouTuber/influencer boxers take a page out of GOAT Youtuber/influencer boxer Jake ''Money'' Paul's book and start facing the killers he has

    Inoue and Fulton have fought against anybody. Some fighters are being ducked because they're too dominant or high risk (ex. Shakur Stevenson, Janibek).

    Jaron Ennis i feel like it's time for him to start stepping up and facing better competition now, i'm really excited to see his progress because he does look special. But i've yet to see him really tested especially regarding his chin.

    I think for some fighters getting that 'step-up' fight is the hardest thing

    Take Ennis and Ortiz - if they fight each other then whilst a step up others will say unproven, but will Crawford/Spence/Ugsa/Thurman give either of those two a chance?

    If not then they don't really have much of a step-up option - especially Ortiz who arguably already had a step up against Mean Machine.

    Janibek is another @160, he will be avoided like the plague, just like GGG was. Andrade went to 168 to avoid that mandatory smoke, and I whilst I'd love to see Charlo v Janibek unification, colour me sceptical it comes about

    Nobody is ducking Shakur, literally everybody at 130 wants to fight him.

    Tank needs to fight someone in the top 3 of the LW division, I say that as one of his few supporters on here.

    "Boring" dominant fighters are always ducked.

    The obvious answer is every belt holder and contender in every division.
