In America, I’d love to see Terence Crawford fight Errol Spence Jr. It’s a fight that has been talked about for a long time. Terence Crawford has undoubtedly proved his greatness in the modern era. Errol Spence has been one of my favorite fighters for a long time and I would really like to see the two of them, two high class elite fighters, meet next year in America.

Savannah Marshall exchanged heated words with Claressa Shields after her latest world title win

Here, I’d like to see the fight of the dream women, which is Claressa Shields versus Savannah Marshall. It is the biggest boxing match for women.

There have been so many fantastic advances for women’s boxing and it will be the biggest statement yet. A huge fight and it has it all, America vs England, long term rivalry, unbeaten records and all belts. This is a fight that I would love to see in the UK.

For me, Terence Crawford versus Errol Spence Jr is the fight I want to see the most. Crawford produced a dominant win over Shawn Porter recently and you’d like to think he can make that fight with Spence at some point next year.

Could Errol Spence Jr finally get an elusive showdown with Terence Crawford?

I think it will be a similar fight to Oscar De La Hoya’s first fight against Shane Mosley, because it certainly won’t be like Marvin Hagler against Tommy Hearns. It will be more like a strategic chess game at the highest level.

Welterweight has been one of the best divisions in boxing. You have two champions, both undefeated, both at their peak, and we need to see that.

A dream fight involving me would be any world title fight! I’m not even picky. I don’t want to mention names, it could be anyone.

Watch Savannah Marshall’s merciless knockout victory

The fight I’d like to see is Claressa Shields versus Savannah Marshall. There is certainly a lot of grudge between Claressa and Savannah. Claressa has classified herself as a knockout specialist, one punch fighter, but if you look at her record, she really didn’t do it to anyone.

Sav has that power. Anyone, male or female, who opposes Sav will say he can punch, but Claressa puts pressure and there are so many ifs and buts. The fight itself is going to be just great and it’s hard to see how it won’t be fun.

Dave Coldwell

I want to see Vasiliy Lomachenko in a rematch with Teofimo Lopez. I just think Lomachenko got canceled after losing his world titles to Lopez, but it was obvious he was injured and didn’t start until after six rounds. By the end of the fight, when he started going to work, it was having an effect on Lopez.

Vasiliy Lomachenko beat Richard Commey in a wide points win this month

Lomachenko from his operation, I’ve been watching those two fights, and he’s back. I just want to see that battle again. I still think Lomachenko is the best fighter in the lightweight division.

Carl Froch

Gervonta Davis versus Ryan Garcia. It is a great battle. I remember seeing ‘Tank’ Davis for the first time in New York on the James DeGale vs Badou Jack bill. He had a shifty style, threw big uppercuts and brought excitement.

Ryan Garcia versus Luke Campbell

Then there’s Ryan Garcia, who got off the canvas to stop Luke Campbell. They are two exciting fighters with fantastic skills who come together in an explosive match. What a fight! Someone has to lose their unbeaten record, so you know they’re going to be a cracker.

George Groves

I want to see Terence Crawford versus Errol Spence Jr. I think it’s the best fight you can have. An exciting fight between two of the best in the world.

Yordenis Ugas is ready to face Spence Jr after calling for a unification fight

Crawford and Spence Jr will have to change and adapt in preparation for each other, and perhaps even overnight. They are both aggressive, they are beautiful to look at and no one knows yet which of them is number one in the world.

Johnny nelson

Terence Crawford vs Errol Spence Jr. They are two brilliant fighters who have looked the part and divided opinion. With Crawford and Spence, you have two groups of fans who believe their man is the best. They believe in it all the way. It’s not just chatter, it’s not just a facade, they really believe it.

Josh Taylor downplayed speculation about future opponents, including Terence Crawford!

It will be a brilliant fight because they are both top level champions and can finally give the fans what they want. It’s a chance for one of them to put an end to any discussion about who is the number 1 welterweight.

Of course I’d also like to see Crawford versus Josh Taylor. This would throw the cat among the pigeons. Josh is the best at superlight, without a doubt, and I’d love to see those two collide.
