Who in your opinion are the best British fighters to look out for in 2022?
Dalton Smith, Dennis Mccann, Pat Mccormack
Ian Beale from Walford is one to watch in the Heavyweight Division
Shabaz Masoud, Azim brothers, Pat McCormack, Mark Chamberlain, Karol Ituama
Chamberlain will get beat by Sam Noakes. Masoud is okay but has no power. Won’t get past British level.
I’d like to say Pat McCormack but in reality he’s not going to do much this year.
The fighters to look out for this year are
Buatsi - surely it’s time to step up and challenge for a world title this year!
Joe Cordina - see above.
Conor Benn - will take another old name early in the year but you’d hope he’d make a world title move by the end of the year.
Conlan - he’s got his world title shot against Wood then will have to unify with Santa Cruz (unless he vacates)
Zach Parker - he’s in line for a (vacant probably) world title shot.
McKinson - he’s up against it but if he wins that fight then he’s right up there for a world title shot.
Difficult to name my top genuine prospects right now. Im talking eye test, not promotional hype. The talent pool seems rather void at the moment. Have a feeling Mccann is not going to set the world alight. Far too much hyperbole for what he's doing.
Dalton Smith looks the goods.
Felix Cash could make a significant step up.
Craig Richards seems to be in that strange spot of possibly above British but not good enough for the levels above. However i could see him possibly getting another run towards a title shot.
If Dan Azeez can get another good win he could really start to generate momentum, no flash just a solid fighter.
Cori Gibbs. If he can stay busy I think he could do really good things. He impressed me in the Boxxer tournament. Some close decisions but after a two year lay off, he more than held his own in some tough company.
Dalton Smith, Karol Ituama, Dennis McCann, Adam Azim, Sam Noakes, Donte Dixon, Mark Chamberlain
War Chisora version 3 covered in treacle and Campbell Hatton when he steps up to fight someone with a 39% win record
Ones to watch closely in 2022 are Dennis McCann and Caoimhin Agyarko
A lot of the other names are not really prospects. I do not think you can still call the likes of Felix Cash or Dan Azeez prospects, given the big wins they had in 2020.
He's got nothing left mate. Wasted talent.
Keen to see what 2022 brings for the oldest looking 22yr old I've ever seen, Johnny Fisher.
He looks closer to 42.
