Nice wishful thinking. But it is just like a boat sinking. And instead of any S-O-S for saving the boat occupants, it is S-O-S for stuck on safety.

That's right! All the fighters want to be safe with easy fights now. They don't want competition for big salaries. They want easy meat to beat and a phony status of pound-four-pound best to keep. And for one, to never suffer a defeat. Holla!

Great list.

Cotto vs Canelo, and GGG vs winner of are at the top of my list, along with Walters vs Lomachenko.

The best part is we actually have a decent chance at seeing these fights get made. The idea of Mayweather vs Canelo II, however, makes me sick. It would be a cynical move on Floyd's part to try and preserve his 'King of the Mountain' spot on Cinco de Mayo, by going back to someone he's already beaten soundly and is confident he can beat again. If the fight gets made, I will not buy it. No way, no day.

Keith Thurman, on the other hand, would have a good chance of knocking Floyd the F out. I'd pay to see that.

I'd also pay to watch La Maquina and El Chino go at it. Not sure that fight will ever happen, but it's got slobberknocker written all over it. And I'm holding out for Khan Vs Brook, which makes a ton of sense, especially since Khan will never get the Mayweather fight. I don't have any inside scoop on that, just a feeling in my gut that says Khan wants it too much, and that stringing him along forever would give Floyd immense personal satisfaction, at least insofar as “TBE” is capable of feeling such an emotion.

Other pugs I want to see more of next year:

James Kirkland
Andy Lee
Abner Mares
Andre Ward, for crying out loud.

You describe Mayweather. He won't fight the best. Ever.

But I have faith in the rest. They'll step up to the test. The Cold War will thaw like the fire burns straw and the fighters will fight cause they know it's the law of the jungle. No bungle. 2015 be mean like the baddest you seen!
