12. Anthony Joshua
Kicking off the 12 Days of Boxing is a monster matchup between two hard-hitting Heavyweights–Anthony Joshua and Luis Ortiz.
Ortiz made the move to Matchroom Boxing in 2016, making a potential matchup between these two behemoths even more possible.
If Joshua vs. Ortiz happens in 2017, who wins?
11. Jarrett Hurd
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and coming in at No. 11 is a matchup between two of the best young and hungry 154-pound contenders–Jarrett Hurd and Tony Harrison.
There are rumblings that the IBF could order Hurd vs. Harrison for the title if Jermall Charlo decides to vacate.
If Hurd vs. Harrison goes down in 2017, who wins?
10. Terence Crawford
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and coming in at No. 10 is a pound-for-pound matchup between two top-notch champions, Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford.
Would Pacquiao put it all on the line against a young gun like Crawford?
Is Crawford ready to try and take over the reins at Top Rank?
Who would win Pacquiao vs. Crawford if it goes down at 140 pounds in 2017?
9. Carl Frampton
Gary Russell Jr.
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and dropping in at No. 9 is a matchup between two of the best young Featherweight fighters in the world–Carl Frampton and Gary Russell Jr.
If Russell Jr. vs. Frampton goes down in 2017, who wins?
8. Kell Brook
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and dropping in at No. 8 is a highly-anticipated matchup that made our list last year as well.
There has been tons of talk from both Amir Khan and Kell Brook hyping this fight up and it seems like a bout could be on the cusp of being officially announced.
If Brook vs. Khan goes down in 2017, who wins?
7. Keith Thurman
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and coming in at No. 7 is a matchup between two of the best Welterweight’s in the world in Keith Thurman and Errol Spence.
Thurman vs. Spence also landed on our list last year, but hopefully it’ll happen in 2017!
If Thurman vs. Spence goes down in 2017, who wins?
6. Andre Ward
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and dropping in at No. 6 is a pound-for-pound rematch between two of boxing’s best–Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev.
RBRBoxing fans voted Kovalev vs. Ward 1 as the worst decision of 2016 and regardless of who you had winning it’s obvious many people want to see a second scrap.
If the second fight between Ward and Kovalev happens in 2017 who will win?
5. Manny Pacquiao
We are coming down the stretch of RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing! Coming in at No. 5 is a fight between a legend in Manny Pacquiao and RBRBoxing’s Fan Choice for 2016 Fighter of the Year, Vasyl Lomachenko.
If Pacquiao vs. Lomachenko happens in 2017 at 140 pounds who will win?
4. Kell Brook
If Brook vs. Spence happens in 2017 who will win?
3. Anthony Joshua
The final three are upon us!
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and coming in at No. 3 is a fight between two hard-hitting Heavyweight giants, IBF Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and WBC Heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder.
These two champs have a combined record of 55-0, 54 KOs.
If Joshua vs. Wilder goes down in 2017 how many rounds will it last and who will win?
2. Roman Gonzalez
Continuing RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and coming in at No. 2 on our wishlist is a sure-fire fight between pound-for-pound kingpin, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez and the “Monster” from Japan, Naoya Inoue.
These two champs have a combined record of 58-0, 48 KOs.
If Gonzalez vs. Inoue goes down in 2017 who will win?
1. Canelo Alvarez
Wrapping up RBRBoxing’s 12 Days of Boxing and landing at No. 1 is undoubtedly the most highly-anticipated fight in the sport of boxing–Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin.
This fight landed at number one on our list last year and we are hoping to see it go down this September.
If Canelo vs. Golovkin takes place at 160 pounds in September, who will win?
