No Imasa i think we have crossed wires. Floyd fights rarely excite thats all. He airs on the side of caution...

 

But that is why I think Maywheather boxing is so smart that every time it just to win the battle against Manny I think would be a good test to see that this fact. bud//

Haye- V Klitscho..

 

in this fight I think Haye (although I like a lot as a boxer) I would have nothing to do with Klisko, since only Klisko maintain distance Haye enter it will cost you much, nothing to do with Valuev under my view is much less hortodoxo that klisko.

THE FIGHTS WE WANT TO SEE IN 2010

 

By Mark Staniforth, Press Association Sport

 

Politics permitting, 2010 ought to prove another spectacular year for boxing, highlighted by the prospect of one of the biggest fights of all time between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

 

Elsewhere, the road towards naming a single, undisputed world heavyweight champion ought to continue to clear as David Haye chases down either or both of the Klitschko brothers.

 

Domestically, the likes of Carl Froch and Amir Khan will continue to make big moves on the world stage. And as London 2012 draws ever closer, the country's best amateurs will jostle for priceless Olympic slots.

 

DOMESTIC

 

 

DAVID HAYE v VLADIMIR KLITSCHKO

 

 

Let's be presumptuous and assume Haye sweeps aside John Ruiz. Next up ought to be the younger and chinnier of the Klitschkos. The clash between two such explosive yet vulnerable fighters is a sure-fire classic.

 

CHANCES: Very good.

 

OUTCOME: Haye, KO.

 

AMIR KHAN v TIMOTHY BRADLEY

 

Khan has any number of options but if he wants to clean up at 147lbs the only fight out there is Bradley, conqueror of Junior Witter and now established beyond doubt as the number one at the weight in the world.

 

CHANCES: Good.

 

OUTCOME: Khan, pts.

 

CARL FROCH v ARTHUR ABRAHAM

 

If Froch does the business over Mikkel Kessler in April - which is far from certain - his likely rival for the title of super-middleweight number one will come in the shape of the rugged, exciting German Arthur Abraham.

 

CHANCES: Possible.

 

OUTCOME: Abraham, pts.

 

MATTHEW MACKLIN v DARREN BARKER

 

There can hardly be a more natural fight out there than one pitting European middleweight champion Macklin with British and Commonwealth champ Barker. Both are ready for the step up, and this is it.

 

CHANCES: Good.

 

OUTCOME: Barker, pts.

 

BRADLEY SAUNDERS v SCOTT CARDLE

 

Cardle dropped down to light-welter for the world championships and his run to the last eight has left GB amateur selectors with a headache. Long-time number one Bradley Saunders is now back from injury a showdown surely awaits.

 

CHANCES: Excellent

 

OUTCOME: Saunders, pts.

 

INTERNATIONAL

 

FLOYD MAYWEATHER v MANNY PACQUIAO

 

Forget the recent drug-test farce this is a fight both men want and need to happen. It will shatter box-office records and draw notwithstanding - produce a pound-for-pound number one guaranteed to stand tall among the greats of history.

 

CHANCES: Excellent.

 

OUTCOME: Draw.

 

PAUL WILLIAMS v SERGIO MARTINEZ II

 

No title was on the line, but the way Williams and Martinez went at it in their middleweight brawl in December suggests a rematch is an even more exciting option than mooted clash between Williams and fading champ Kelly Pavlik.

 

CHANCES: Very good.

 

OUTCOME: Williams, pts.

 

JUAN MANUEL LOPEZ v YURIORKIS GAMBOA

 

The dazzlingly talented Lopez had to cling on to retain his super-bantam crown over Rogers Mtagwa but his status as one of the sport's most exciting fighters is assured. Unbeaten Cuban Gamboa is being groomed to face Lopez in a major showdown.

 

CHANCES: Slim.

 

OUTCOME: Gamboa, KO.

 

VIC DARCHINYAN v NONITO DONAIRE

 

Big-hitting big mouth Darchinyan was knocked cold by Donaire in 2007, and has avoided rematch calls since. Darchinyan is now world super-fly champion, and with Donaire interim champ, the time has come to make the fight.

 

CHANCES: Very good.

 

OUTCOME: Donaire, KO.

 

CHAD DAWSON v BERNARD HOPKINS

 

Anything to avoid the still-talked-about prospect of Hopkins dredging up the remains of Roy Jones. Dawson needs Hopkins to be able to call himself light-heavy number one. For Hopkins, it would be the chance to retire as a legitimate champ.

 

CHANCES: Fair.

 

OUTCOME: Dawson, pts.
