No doubt many fans and those who love boxing alike will be contemplating their boxing wishlist at the moment. After such a wonderful 2017 there seems like so much to ponder for the new year.
Overall, for the most part, boxing pretty much put on the fights people wanted to see this year.
But what of 2018?
Pound for pound rated fighters like Terence Crawford, Gennady Golovkin, Errol Spence, Canelo Alvarez, Vasyl Lomachenko and others will be on everyone’s list surely in terms of fights they’d like to see then in.
Although the Golovkin vs Canelo rematch deal isn’t done quiet yet – it’s widely thought that it will be in the coming weeks.
What a part two that promises to be after such a fan-friendly first fight last September.
The heavyweight division on a personal note is always my favorite division to watch. Always has been since a kid.
I’m really interested to see what kind of Tyson Fury returns to the sport after a full two and a bit years out.
What shape he’ll be in and how his skills and technique still look. Particularly with a new trainer and no Peter Fury in his corner anymore.
David Haye takes on Tony Bellew in a rematch in May after another injury blighted Haye’s career recently.
Again like Fury, it will be interesting to see what he has left. But different to Fury he’s older now and likely will be his last chance at a run at a heavyweight title.
Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder seem to be on an inevitable collision course but the earliest it will probably happen is the back-end of 2018.
When it does though, it could be the biggest fight between two heavyweights from either side of the pond since Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson.
Yeah, that’s just a few bits to look forward to but in truth, there’s so much more. Boxing is thriving again thank God.
Long may it continue.
