By Josh Keen: 2018 has become the latest installment of a developing fad at which the best less or more are fighting the ideal. Vasyl Lomachenko fought the previously number one-rated 135-pounder Jorge Linares, Anthony Joshua merged against Joseph Parker, Josh Warrington fought Lee Selby and Carl Frampton in national nonetheless elite-level events, both the cruiser and super-middleweight pecking orders have been seemingly demystified, previously avoided fighters Luis Ortiz, Sergey Derevyanchenko, and Oleksander Gvozdyk were given their own shots, and Wilder of course faced off against Tyson Fury in probably the most talked about match up of the year.

Let’so expect that 2019 will not buck the trend also continues in the exact same vein. Though, a few of these dream fights are a Bit More viable than many other people …

Despite Oscar Valdez impressing in his revival competition with Scott Quigg, also Selby’s back-to-back successes against his national rivals, these two must be seen as the major featherweights. His best win so far came in 2013 against Joseph Diaz, a fighter encouraged by many to win multiple world names and who’d formerly uttered world champion Oscar Valdez from the amateurs. While Russell’s hands are all quick, so too are Santa Cruz’s and perhaps he carries even more power inside them. Having a Frampton re-match seemingly from this equation, why not make this mouth-watering unification?

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai Compared to Jerwin Ancajas

Few could question Rungvisai’s place beneath the 115lb branch. After his unexpected initial success over Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, heavily backed up with a knock out in the rematch, all has appeared relatively straightforward for the Thai knock out artist. Gonzalez should not have been around in the ring with him — his power hasn’t carried through the weights like a Manny Pacquiao nor does he contain the art of a Lomachenko. Ancajas, however, while arriving off a draw which includes muted the hype, could still bang and is definitely as talented if not more so than Rungvisai. While maybe not quite a 50-50, this struggle will definitely still retain fans and pundits imagining.

Vasyl Lomachenko Compared to Mikey Garcia

Perhaps the most likely one of the bundle …doubtful we’ll ever see it. It was the obvious fight to put together with these champions so undoubtedly leading the way in which at lightweight. But, promotional differences negated any form of conversation. Garcia’s marginally longer reach and ultimate technical skills (even though not at the level of both Loma’s) might have contrived a technically pure boxing affair that can be rivaled by few. In addition, it might have been declared a pound for pound numberone before the rest. Proceed to challenge hard-hitting welterweight Errol Spence. So what could be said though is that even if he forfeit, the Lomachenko struggle will still be there.

Dmitry Bivol Compared to Artur Beterbiev

Dmitry Bivol, an amazing talent, characterized by his technical ability and higher work-rate and Beterbiev, a person who carries dynamite in both fists, seem eager to create a little more emotion for lovers concerning who the real light heavyweight kingpin is. This is really a struggle where purification could be ill-advised. Beterbiev’s 13 knockouts in as much conflicts and Bivol’s 1 1 knockouts would make for a firecracker. While Gvozdyk, Badou Jack and Alvarez would all argue themselves to best the very best, the 2 Russians would definitely help solve the question involving 175 pounds supremacy.

It’d be a shame to visit Fury step in front of Fury in the queue to face off against Deontay Wilder. Tyson Fury seemingly won the struggle Wilder with way of a handful rounds therefore, thus warranting the possiblity to re match. Nevertheless, the winner of that competition still couldn’t proclaim themselves are the finest in the branch. While Joshua may have had trouble beating Wladimir Klitscho, also looked worked against Alexander Povetkin, he’s still beaten everyone placed in front of him. Could Wilder finally find out Fury or is he’s simply too technical? Would A J have any more chance and who would land first if A-J confronted against Deontay? Questions being requested in the gold branch …

Even though we were for only two or even three of those fantasy fights in 2019, we’re in for another year. To not say the three WBSS tournaments that are due to happen over the next calendar year.
