  1. Matthew Macklin

Matthew Macklin has desperately tried to win a world title over the course of his hard career, fighting the best out there including Felix Sturm, Sergio Martinez and Gennady Golovkin. Challenge Saunders would be his last chance and it would be a big fight in the UK but there are complications, they share the same management (so it’s unclear whether this would mean the fight is easier or harder to make) and Saunders has been using Macklin’s gym in Marbella.
