1. Anthony Joshua

Retaining his WBO heavyweight world title is great news for Joseph Parker. The glamour is being restored to the heavyweight division, not least due to Anthony Joshua, who can fill a stadium in the UK against a little known fighter in Britain like Kubrat Pulev. Parker doesn’t appear as tough an opponent as the likes of Pulev or Luis Ortiz but holding the precious title would give Joshua the opportunity to add a third world crown to his collection.

2. Tony Bellew
