Following on from Roman Gonzalez vs Israel Gonzalez, here are the best bouts that can be made between current fighters who share a surname
- DANNY GARCIA vs MIKEY GARCIA
Currently ranked at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively in the Boxing News welterweight ratings, a clash between Danny Garcia and Mikey Garcia would be a fascinating one, as both are former multi-division world titlists.
- CALLUM SMITH vs JOE SMITH JNR
WBA super-middleweight champion Callum Smith has spoken in the past about moving up to light-heavyweight. A fight with top 175lb contender Joe Smith Jnr would be well received by fans.
- JULIAN WILLIAMS vs LIAM WILLIAMS
Ex-unified super-welterweight champ Julian Williams against in-form middleweight Liam Williams is a bout that could take place at either 154lbs or 160lbs.
- ROBEISY RAMIREZ vs EDUARDO RAMIREZ
After a shock defeat on his pro debut, double Olympic gold medallist Robeisy Ramirez has won his subsequent five outings. BN’s No. 10 featherweight Eduardo Ramirez would provide a stern examination of his credentials.
- JULIO CESAR MARTINEZ vs FERNANDO MARTINEZ
There has been talk of WBC flyweight ruler Julio Cesar Martinez stepping up to super-flyweight in the not-too-distant future. BN’s No. 7 at that weight is Fernando Martinez.
- JOSEPH DIAZ vs CHRISTOPHER DIAZ
Although he is fighting at featherweight at the moment, Christopher Diaz has previously challenged for world honours at super-featherweight. He could have a second try by facing reigning IBF 130lb king Joseph Diaz.
- CANELO ALVAREZ vs ELEIDER ALVAREZ
He may have been stopped last time out, but Eleider Alvarez is still a former WBO light-heavyweight boss. Pound-for-pound supremo Canelo Alvarez vacated the very same belt at the end of 2019.
- OHARA DAVIES vs ROBBIE DAVIES JNR
While Robbie Davies Jnr has held British, Commonwealth and European straps, fellow super-lightweight Ohara Davies has yet to do so. It would be a well-matched domestic duel.
- MAXI HUGHES vs JOE HUGHES
The in-form Maxi Hughes has scored a couple of big wins at lightweight this year, while Joe Hughes is an ex-European title-holder at super-lightweight. These two could collide at 140lbs.
- FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ JNR vs JONATHAN JAVIER RODRIGUEZ
Former unified strawweight titlist Francisco Rodriguez Jnr and Jonathan Javier Rodriguez both have designs on becoming world champions at super-flyweight.
