Cruis­er­weight con­tender

Tyson Fury’s come­back. I’ve been a huge Fury fan from the start of his ca­reer, and to go through what he’s been through and climb back to the top of the moun­tain is in­cred­i­ble.

Nigel Wright

For­mer English champ

My favourite box­ing mo­ment of 2018 was my daugh­ter, Mia Wright, be­com­ing the Eng­land box­ing schools cham­pion – a very proud mo­ment for all the fam­ily. Pro­fes­sion­ally, I would go with Va­syl Lo­machenko vs. Jorge Linares. Two world-class fight­ers putting it on the line.

Brian Magee

For­mer EBU champ

I’d have to say Tony Bellew’s sec­ond fight with David Haye. Bellew go­ing out there and shock­ing the na­tion for a sec­ond time was great.

Andy Clarke

Box­ing com­men­ta­tor

Tyson Fury haul­ing him­self off the can­vas and ris­ing like a phoenix from the ashes in the fi­nal round against Deon­tay Wilder. That and Wilder’s cur­tailed cel­e­bra­tion and look of ut­ter in­credulity when he saw it hap­pen­ing.
