Good lists guys. You pretty much got all the ones I would say except Froch kessler 2 and I don't mind gg vs Martinez but I would like gg to fight at least one maybe two guys of name or threat.
Plah
1.Lucas vs Danny

2.Lucas vs Broner

3.Ward vs Martínez

4.JMM vs Bradley

5.Pac vs Rios

6.JMM vs Rios

7.Nonito vs Rigo

All doable (same promoter and weight divisions exceept for Ward/Sergio). I disagree about Floyd vs Guerrero and Martínez vs Chávez 2. That's like saying Mosley deserves a rematch with Floyd just because he almost knocked down Floyd twice in that second round.

Clottey (dig him up) vs Canelo (at 154)
Hank Lundy vs Vernon Paris
Chavez vs Pavlik (at 168)

Karim Mayfield vs. Pier Olivier Cote

Paul Spadafora vs. Breidis Prescott

Gary Russell Jr. Vs Javier Fortuna

Chris John vs. Billy Dib

Deontay Wilder vs. Bryant Jennings

Tyson Fury vs. David Price

Tavoris Cloud vs. Benard Hopkins (should be interesting)

For now...

Lol, what a waste SMH.

Wow...this would be a fight for the ages! I haven't seen Cote fight in a while, but I think he'd handle Mayfield though.

Kinda suspect how this guy just faded into the dark the way his career has.

He fought last November (2011) on the untelevised portion of Chavez/Manfredo, against Calvin Green at 154. I always found it suspect how he just faded away after the Pacquiao fight, where Pac was clearly enhanced, hence how he threw over 1000 POWER punches and didn't fade. Weird

On another note, Clottey's been on the short end of a few decisions, some of which were his fault, and others had much to do with politics.

Alvarez vs. Trout.

I need to see how Foghorn can handle legitimate competition. If it goes down he has EVERYTHING to lose because of how he has been marketed.

Thought he got shelved because after the pac fight he said something along the lines that he was given incentive to make pac look good?? Probably got poppa arum a little ticked

Me to, not only because I want marquez to get another pay day that he completely deserves but to see if ha lands something significant how may would hold up to it after his stint in jail and his long layoff. In the first fight size was definitely a factor.

Marquez definitely deserves the Mayweather fight more than anybody else and for some reason if Mayweather decides to fight him like he did Cotto I see a much more exciting fight.

marquez is definitely the most worthy guy out there for floyd (aside from martinez) but i can't see that fight playing out any differently. if marquez tries to fight more aggressively, he gets stopped this time.

My list roughly in order:

Broner vs Garcia- Definitely, Top 5 on this list! Maybe the fight I wanna see most and it's definitely possible. I think this will be a barn burner. I think Broner might take him to school. Too accurate and his punches are too straight.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao- Yea I said it. I wanna see this fight still because now it won't be riddled with as much Pactardation in the build up lol. I just want to see these guys finally settle the score.

Cotto vs Canelo- I think this has FOTY written all over it.

Chavez Jr vs Andre Ward- I know...It'll never happen...but I can dream. I want to see JCC Jr finally fight in the weight class he's SUPPOSED to be in and stop pussyfooting around. I'm tired of the conditioning saga everytime he fights. I'm tired of him looking like he's the big doofy kid that got held back 3 times everytime he fights. Andre Ward vs Julio Ceasar Chavez Jr at 168. Period. End of Story!

Golovkin vs Chavez Jr- If you insist on not moving up, fight GGG.

Broner vs Rios- I kinda get a Mayweather vs Gatti vibe. That wasn't a competitive fight at all but it's still one of my favorites. I wanna see just how good a BOXER Broner is. To me, Rios is taylor made for a boxing lesson. Can Broner play professor?

Marquez vs Mayweather 2- Do I think the result will be different? No. But quite frankly, I'm tired of seeing brawls every fight. I became a huge Mayweather fan because of his technical brilliance and application of the sweet science. I can watch Rios or Chavez Jr if I wanna see slug fest. I'd really like to see this meeting of the minds.

Martirosyan vs Thurman- How will Keith deal with a who isn't comin with no bullshit?

Russell Jr vs Gamboa- Gamboa has officially convinced me, he doesn't really want problems with "The Problem". I think Russell Jr is more realistic at this point.

Bradley vs Rios- I'm no Bradley fan but I wanna see how Rios is going to deal with a guy who has just as much heart but is probably twice as smart.

Ortiz vs Rios- I know, Ortiz has tore his sunday draws with most of us. That being said, I ALWAYS wanted to see this happen. I want to see the bad blood. I just wish Garcia was still training him. that brotherly fued would have made it even better.

Kirkland vs Bundrage- A nice brawl every once in a while is cool. I'll be sure to be nice and liquored up for this one...spewing drunken profanities and cheering like a sailor until my ol' lady tells me to keep it down lol.

Thurman vs Guerrero- I expect there to be a lot of action in this fight. At the very least, at least one of them will have to shut the fuck up about fighting Floyd lmao

Khan vs Ortiz- Battle of the underachievers lol

Bradley vs Garcia- I actually think Bradley will beat him. I can't see him allowing himself to get his by those wild hooks.

Daquan Arnett vs Deandre Lattimore or Jesse Vargas- I like this kid Arnett. Nobody is really talking about him but I think he's got potential. He'd have to come down in weight for the Vargas fight but I think he could stand to shed a few anyway. I also want to see if Lattimore is done for good.

Rios vs Garcia- Will Danny adapt and box, or try to out punch Rios?

Nice matchups sir!

Chavez/Ward: Lmao at Chavez being the big doofy kid that got held back 3 times! Too funny! I like this matchup...it has "money" and "showcase bout" written all over it for both guys...more so Ward.

Martirosyan/Thurman: Great matchup for both! Hope Arum doesn't get in the way of it. I like Martirosyan in this one for some reason.

Bradley/Rios: Good test for both guys, being the fact that Manny didn't jump all over Bradley like most people thought (including me). Rios will be allover Bradley without a worry in this world. Bradley may not have the power to keep Rios off of him, but he is just as big of a bully as Rios is, and for some reason, I actually have Bradley pulling off a TKO in this one...something we haven't seen in a while.

Ortiz/Rios: Tough fuckin' fight for Victor at this point. Ortiz was supposed to knock heads off in the WW division, but he has yet to meet the mark. Lmao at Ortiz "tearing his Sunday draws"...sounds like something my grandma would say! Lol. Rios has already made a statement at 140, and was in line for a Pacquiao fight at WW, so that's not good news for Victor. Victor was supposed to be at least one step ahead of Rios (as far as making his mark in the division), but now it APPEARS that Ortiz will NEED the fight now, rather than making Rios work for it.

Kirkland/Bundrage: They both need this fight, but Kirkland needs it more than K-9. If K-9 actually beats Kirkland, his IBF shitshow would continue, as well as his useless and toothless calling out of the big names. Kirkland has never been champ, from what I remember...dude needs a belt.

Thurman/Guerrero: I like Robert in this fight, but Thurman is a BIG WW. He's another Berto, with a little less athleticism. Guerrero may surprise him with bullying tactics and landed punches. We haven't seen Thurman hit that much, so the day I see that, I can actually make a decent prediction.

Khan/Ortiz: Not sure I like this one too much. I dont see much coming out of it, to be honest. I see Ortiz getting frustrated and finding a way out of the fight because of movement and handspeed that he cant match. Either that, or Victor will hurt Khan, and Khan will yet again, fight stupid and beat himself...rather than being smart and trying to survive until he regains his legs. Really though, I dont see much coming out of this one.

Bradley/Garcia: "Battle of the Wild Hooks". If Bradley had a decent straight punch, rather than hooks and inside fighting, then he'd have the edge here. i just see Bradley bullying Garcia in this one, because Garcia typically sits back and fights a slow-paced fight. Too much room for Bradley to bully him.

Arnett vs Lattimore or Vargas: I like Arnett, I just need to see more of him. I just see a lot of raw talent at the moment. He may be able to fuck over Lattimore with that, but Vargas wont allow it. As a matter of fact, Vargas will find every way to make it a boring fight....as he always effortlessly does. Bum

I wanna see Alexander vs Berto for some reason.

Berto has completely fucked himself with fighting lesser opposition/tomato cans and getting paid big bucks for it. Now he HAS to fight the known fighters of the division, and along with that, he has to improve in order to do so.

He better get rid of his corner QUICK! If he does anything otherwise, then we're seeing the beginning of the end for Berto as we speak.

IF he faces Alexander, then he HAS to win. If knockdowns aren't shared in this fight, then Berto can consider himself done.

Alexander/Guerrero anyone?

I also wouldn't mind seeing Guerrero/Zaveck.

I love Zavek too! Dude was hurt about that Berto stoppage, but his eyes and that cut wouldn't hold up long enough for him to get to Berto more than he wanted to. From what I've been reading, rumor is, there's a Thurman/Zavek fight in the works for March 9th (I believe). Dont sleep Keith!

I wanna see what Cotto has in store for Canelo, because at this point, I'm not so sure.

I wanna see my man Danny Jacobs fight again! Maybe against a guy like Kirkland or Bundrage. I like that dude man. He's arguably the most disciplined fighter to come out of Brooklyn. His story and his perseverance really is making me into a fan.
