#5.  Floyd Mayweather VS Adrien Broner

The former “next” Floyd Mayweather, needs to be shut up by the real Floyd Mayweather.  These two were once close friends, and how now turned bitter enemies, after Broner’s head fell of his shoulders due to the losses that Mayweather harshly criticized.  Floyd even told Broner “how can you be the next Mayweather?  You lost”.  Broner did not take that lightly, and started continuously talking trash about his former idol.  Well if you are the next Floyd Mayweather, you should be able to beat a 39 year old Mayweather right?

#4.  Errol Spence Jr VS Kell Brook

In my opinion, these are the absolute best 2 welterweights in the game today, no matter what the rankings say.  Kell Brook is ranked #1 in the welterweight division.  Errol Spence is ranked #7.  Well that’s not accurate.  Errol Spence’s sample size is small, which is why he’s back that far on the list, but in my opinion there is no welterweight in the world that can beat him besides maybe Kell Brook, and that’s a big MAYBE!  Brook has destroyed everyone put in front of him, but so has Spence, and in even more dramatic fashion.  They are both great boxers, with tremendous power for their weight, the thing that separates them slightly, is Spence’s uncanny ability to destroy an opponent with body shots.  This is a great matchup between two very similar fighters, and its time to find out which is better.

#3.  Andre Ward VS Sergey Kovalev

This fight probably will happen, given that both Kovalev and Ward win their tune up fights over the summer, that’s why it only ranks at #3 on my wish list.  Ward and Kovalev are polar opposites with their boxing styles, Ward being the high ring IQ pure boxer, and Kovalev being the mauler that he is.  So far, no one has been able to stop the Kovalev onslaught, but Ward poses a huge threat.  He is smart enough and skilled enough to interrupt Kovalev’s relentless offense.  Remember, Ward was predicted to be one of the first eliminated in the Super 6 tournament, where he literally defeated every style of boxing, and won the whole thing.  Kovalev is a monster though, and this is probably the best matchup that can be made in all of boxing.

#2.  Deontay Wilder VS Wladimir Klitschko/Tyson Fury

We all know that Tyson Fury’s win over Klitschko was a fluke, and Wladimir will probably beat him in the rematch.  If not, then my #2 wish will be Wilder VS Fury.  Never the less, who ever it is, it’s Deontay’s turn to own the Heavyweight division.  Why?  Because he deserves it.  He is 35-0 with 34 KO’s, and that is absolutely amazing.  He single handily brought relevance back to the heavyweight division, and he deserves to own it.

#1.  Canelo Alvarez VS Gennady Golovkin

It’s time to give up the belt, and let the true best middleweight reign supreme, which is Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.  Canelo is fighting a man half his size in Amir Khan on May 7th, so its likely that he will win.  If he does, which he will, he needs to put it all up against Golovkin, or leave the middleweight division.  Golovkin is the second best fighter in the world today, and he’s being held back that the lineal middleweight champ, who doesn’t even fight at the middleweight limit.  He has created his own division 1 pound above the junior middleweight class, just so he can hold that title that he doesn’t really deserve.  Gennady Golovkin is hands down the best middleweight in the world, and he should have all the straps to prove it.
