The Big Question: If you were running the next season of the World Boxing Super Series, which division would you target and why?

This week's panellists were given the power to run the upcoming season of the World Boxing Super Series and use this power to select its next weight class

Michael Conlan (Featherweight contender)

I would go for either super-featherweight or middleweight. Both divisions are stacked and there are some very interesting fights that I would love to see as a fan.

Wayne Alexander (Former European champion)

I would choose the lightweight division. It has three undefeated, good world champions who could all win – Gervonta Davis, Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney – as well as future Hall-of-Famer Vasyl Lomachenko, who would be the favourite but need to be at his very best to beat the rest.

Declan Taylor (Journalist)

Assuming I’d have the pick of all the top guys it has to be heavyweight. Even beyond Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury the likes of Joseph Parker, Oleksandr Usyk and Dillian Whyte would serve up a superb mixture of fights. Wouldn’t be cheap, though.

Nigel Wright (Former English champion)

I would love to see all the heavyweights go for it with all the belts on the line. No politics involved, just get on with it and find out the identity of the world’s best heavyweight. It would be great value and we would see plenty of knockouts and some great fights.

Deontay Wilder’s style would suit a tournament format
