Britain is now having a period to match the American 60-70s in terms of heavyweights in addition to the obvious names - (i.e. Joshua and Tyson Fury) you've got Hughie Fury fighting for a world title, Dillian Whyte potentially fighting for world title if he beats Mariuz Wach, to say nothing of:

- Dave "White Rhino" Allen - a man who went 7 rounds against Luis Ortiz and 10 rounds against Dillian Whyte without having either a trainer or a boxing gym and who had only practised by shadow boxing in front of the mirror - he is now in proper training for a fight on 27 May against Lenroy Thomas for the Commonwealth belt and I bet that he will get a world title fight one day - p.s. his twitter feed is one of the hidden gems of the internet.

- Nathan Gorman only 20 years old and 9-0 and due to fight for the English heavyweight belt shortly

- Daniel Dubois only 19 and raved about

Do you think Haye is done now? Is price still knocking about? Will Bellew be tempted to stay at heavy?

my old man took me to watch tys v bruno in '96 and even watching it back on youtube now you just think the likes of haye'd have zero chance back then let alone in both their primes. Can't stand haye

In response to Wang:

- Yes Haye is finished.

- Price is still knocking about but had a bad loss to Christian Hammer in which he completely ran out of gas - watch it on youtube it is frankly embarrasing.

- No idea on Bellew

Bellew won't be a heavyweight, I think he knows it.

Price couldn't beat MC Hammer - glass chin.

If Joshua wins these belts, I wonder if Fury will ever be well enough to try and get them back? I think he's only a suspended champ ao presumably he has the right to fightfor them if he gets better?

That would be a cracking match up

Enormous heh at the idea that Tyson Fury is somehow "unwell" as opposed to merely fat and drunk.

It seems Bellew will go for a HW belt

Madness. I mean good luck to him but I rather think he's used up the luck vat with the haye fight...
