The top 15 fights we still want to see in 2015
  1. Brandon Rios v Ruslan Provodnikov
    Rios is currently in talks to challenge Kell Brook for his IBF welter strap, but with reports of those negotiations hitting a snag over a rematch clause, a guaranteed war with Provodnikov, who is also promoted by Top Rank, could be on the cards. With similar aggressive styles, a fight between the two would surely be a shoo-in for fight of the year if it were to happen. Both men have expressed an interest in fighting each other in the past and it would be a money-spinner given the potential for excitement, meaning Rios may be more financially inclined to face the Russian instead of Brook.
