NOW THAT WE’RE HALF­WAY THROUGH 2018, WHAT’S THE ONE FIGHT YOU WOULD MAKE IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS AND WHY?

Boxing News - - The Panel -

Ryan Walsh

Bri­tish feather cham­pion

It has to be An­thony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury. As a Brit and a huge box­ing fan, that fight would be one for the ages. Plus, it’ll also have an Olympic gold medal­list in­volved. It’s a fight that would fill Wem­b­ley twice.

Michael Con­lan

Feath­er­weight prospect

I’d go for Errol Spence vs. Ter­ence Craw­ford. I feel it’s the best fight in box­ing right now and it in­volves two of the sport’s true elite fighters. It’s a fight that needs to hap­pen and it needs to hap­pen sooner rather than later. Both of them are fly­ing.

Mickey Hel­liet

Pro­lific pro­moter

Errol Spence vs. Ter­ence “Bud” Craw­ford. Two ex­cep­tional fighters, a bout be­tween them would tran­scend and mes­merise the en­tire sport­ing world.

De­clan Tay­lor

Box­ing jour­nal­ist

Has to be Joshuaw­ilder. It would not only pro­duce a rare undis­puted cham­pion but also the first heavy­weight to hold all four belts at once. It is also a fight in which ei­ther man could get chinned at any mo­ment. It could sell out any sta­dium in the world and rightly so.
