This week's panellists are asked to name their favourite characters in boxing

Dave Allen (Heavyweight contender)

I think the biggest character in boxing right now is Tyson Fury. He’s big and loud and, while his controversial days are behind him, he’s always making headlines.

Michael Conlan (Featherweight contender)

I think the Charlos (Jermell and Jermall) are the most entertaining talkers around at the minute. They seem crazy and have been backing it up.

Gavin Gwynne (British and Commonwealth lightweight champion)

It’s got to be Tyson Fury. He talks the talk and backs it up every time. Another personality I really like is Conor Benn. He really gets fired up for a fight. I love the way he is at press conferences and when doing all the media stuff. He loves a war.

Jake Limond (Super-lightweight prospect)

Two of the most interesting personalities in the sport today are David Allen and Oleksandr Usyk. Both of them are hilarious. I also think David Nyika is quite interesting. He’s a Star Wars fan and had a Boba Fett-inspired fight kit for one of his fights – similar to my Obi-Wan Kenobi-inspired fight kit. It’s cool to see people in the sport who have similar ideas and interests as me.

Jermell Charlo
