Khan was boxing well against Garcia before being undone by a massive left hook back in 2012. Currently No 1 challenger for Garcia’s title, Khan is eager to avenge the loss and even prioritises a rematch with Garcia over a superfight with domestic rival Kell Brook. Garcia is scheduled to fight WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman in March while Khan is still recovering from injury.

  1. Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao

Admit it, you would watch it. While Mayweather insists he is happily retired, Pacquiao ended his brief hiatus from the sport in November when he dominated Jessie Vargas to win yet another world title. The Filipino is desperate to get his hands on Mayweather again after his disappointing points loss to the American in 2015.

  1. Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz

One of two rematches on this list that are officially happening (so far). Frampton will defend the WBA featherweight title he won from Santa Cruz in their hellacious meeting earlier in the year. The pair meet in Las Vegas in January.

  1. Roman Gonzalez vs Carlos Cuadras
