As a fighter: to be in great fights for the fans. As a fan: Tyson Fury to beat Deon­tay Wilder – again – and then fight AJ to dis­cover the real heavy­weight king.

I hope that AIBA get sorted with the Olympic Move­ment to al­low box­ing to re­main in the Olympics. This has stalled prepa­ra­tions for our Elite Bri­tish box­ers who are wait­ing on qual­i­fiers. The Olympics is the big­gest stage. It helps raise their pro­file be­fore go­ing into the pro ranks to it keeps Bri­tish box­ing at top of the game.

My box­ing wish for 2019 is for Ryan Bur­nett to get back in the mix as a world cham­pion af­ter that freak loss to Nonito Don­aire. This kid is too su­per-tal­ented to sit on side-line.

That by the end of the year An­thony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deon­tay Wilder will have all fought each other. Box­ing isn’t just about the big men, I know that, but the heavy­weights lead the way and the best fight­ing the best in the most high-pro­file divi­sion would set the stan­dard for the whole sport.
