1. Anthony Joshua

This is the fight to make in the sport and Wilder’s exploits in the Luis Ortiz fight make it even more intriguing and more appealing. It hinges on Joshua beating Joseph Parker at the end of the month to unify his IBF and WBA titles and Parker’s WBO belt. If Joshua can do that, him versus Wilder for all four major belts – it doesn’t get any better than that.

2. Tyson Fury
