The six questions for boxing in 2016

John Dennen ponders what to look out for this year
  1. Will the heavyweight division unify?

Whilst Wladimir Klitschko has been a great champion, whose accomplishments merit great respect, the new age for the heavyweight division, heralded by Tyson Fury’s victory over Wladimir in November is going to add a new layer of intrigue to the sport. The big question is will we get a unified world heavyweight champion this year. Fury has been forced to shed one of the three belts he won, Vyacheslav Glazkov and Charles Martin box for that on January 16 and we have to see whether Deontay Widler, the WBC titlist is going to step forward and take on one of the other champions.
