    Come on then guys. Who's your favourite Queensbury promotion fighter? Some decent fighters Frank manages, whether or not they stay with him with big bucks Hearn around is a different story..

    Mine would be: Warrington, Dubois and Liam Williams

    Haven’t you just named every decent fighter in his stable?

    Barring Warringtons already considerable achievements, I see Dubois being Queensbury's most successful fighter, as long as Warren can keep hold of him. I honestly see Dubois as the best of the current Heavyweight prospects and hopefully, once he takes care of Fujimoto, he'll start proving it in 2020.

    Not at all convinced by Yarde to be honest, think Buatsi takes care of him without too much trouble.

    Dubois is the most exciting and fun to watch. To listen to before and after the fight not so much.

    I actually think Sam Jones would have been a good manager for Dubois or Hearn as a promoter. He needs somebody to hype up his fights and do his talking and then let him do the business in the ring

    Warrington given his excellent form and also his all action style. Then Dubois.

    Yarde has comedy value, but little talent imho.

    I quite like Archie Sharpe

    I think he will be in some good fights in the next 2 years

    Sky is the limit for Dubois. A guy with those physical attributes including devastating power, who is just a baby and extremely dedicated to the sport is a very dangerous kid. Keeping hold of him will be the job for Frank because when the world realises Dubois' potential, huge offers will flood in.

    Dubois.

    Warrington just holds no interest for me, beat a shot Frampton meh who cares

    Yarde is absoloutley useless

    Joe Joyce is too old and frankly not really good enough to do anything major.

    Dubois is a real prospect though, Frank needs to develop him properly and not fast track him, learn from the mistakes Eddie made with AJ.

    I like what I've seen too. Needs to bulk up, but I suppose that comes with age to an large extent

    I like Catterall but he’s like the invisible man at times. Can see him moving on at any given opportunity.

    Love the comment above about Frank ‘learning from the mistakes Hearn made with Joshua.’ Those would presumably be the same mistakes which in the space of three years or so turned Joshua from a guy fighting Matt Legg on a Froch undercard to becoming WBA/IBF/WBO world champion and earning more than any boxer bar Canelo.

    Haha! Finally a point I agree with...

    Two completely different beasts. Dubois has time. AJ came to the sport relatively late and turned pro off the back of being the nation’s golden boy. Completely different job guiding the two of them through the early stages of their careers...

    I’ll correct that last bit though...

    *Canelo and Tyson Fury :lol:
