  1. Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez (middleweight)

Easily the biggest fight that can be made in the sport, these two elite superstars have been circling each other for a while.

  1. Anthony Joshua vs David Haye (heavyweight)

Both favourites in their upcoming fights against Wladimir Klitschko and Tony Bellew respectively, should they both win a showdown between them would shatter UK records.

  1. Amir Khan vs Kell Brook (welterweight)

Negotiations for this domestic superfight are reportedly going well. There is a chance these two bitter rivals could finally meet this year.

  1. Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev II (light-heavyweight)

These two pound-for-pound stalwarts were involved in the most anticipated – and ultimately one of the most closely contested – fights of 2016.

  1. Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder (heavyweight)

Fury is reportedly returning to action this year and has his sights set on WBC champion Wilder. Two huge personalities and two unbeaten talents – a winning formula.

  1. Roman Gonzalez vs Naoya Inoue (super-flyweight)

Two of the best and most exciting fighters in the world and they both hold world titles in the same division.

  1. Manny Pacquiao vs Terence Crawford (super-lightweight)

If Pacquiao is serious about his comeback, Crawford awaits.

  1. James DeGale vs George Groves II (super-middleweight)

If DeGale adds the WBC belt to his IBF title and Groves collects the WBA strap, a unification rematch between the two Londoners would be huge.

  1. Billy Joe Saunders vs Chris Eubank Jnr II (middleweight)

If Eubank Jnr isn’t staying at super-middleweight, he has unfinished business at 160lbs.

  1. Adonis Stevenson vs Artur Beterbiev (light-heavyweight)

WBC champion Stevenson needs a real test, and Beterbiev needs a title shot.
