Opinion

If the top British light-heavyweights fought through a tournament, who wins?

Joshua Buatsi, Callum Smith, Anthony Yarde, Callum Johnson and more, there is a group of tremendous British light-heavyweights at present. Who would win if they all fought through a tournament?

Tony Jeffries
Olympic light-heavyweight medallist

For me it is either Joshua Buatsi or Callum Smith. At this stage I would opt for Callum as he would hold the edge in top-level experience having become a world champion at super-middleweight. I’m a huge Callum Smith fan.

Paul Edwards
Former British champion

I think Callum Smith would beat Buatsi. I think Callum. Light-heavyweight will suit him. I think Buatsi would beat all the others but I think Callum would beat Buatsi. It would be great to have that little Super Series, imagine that.

Mickey Helliet
Boxing manager and promoter

I’d take Joshua Buatsi to come out top. His level of opposition so far hasn’t been high enough for him to show his full worth and may even have stunted his development but I believe when he gets the chance to step up he’ll answer a lot of critics by making a statement.

Declan Taylor
Sports reporter

Always thought Joshua Buatsi would eventually emerge as the No.1 in the field but he has stalled and may not get past Craig Richards. A fit, firing and active Callum Johnson beats them all but will we ever get that? Anthony Yarde at his best is a problem but my final answer is Callum Smith.
