Boxing always has fights fans want to see. Most of the time anymore, we won’t see them for one reason or another. Promoter rivalries, network contracts, a personal dislike that extends far enough the fighters don’t even want to punch each other, a good old-fashioned duck, whatever.

Right now, we’re not seeing any boxing due to COVID-19, but sooner or later we will, even if it comes in the form of a series of tune-ups and stay-busys.

But let’s say there was no pandemic right now, and there were no political roadblocks or anything else standing in the way.

What’s the one must-have fight for you right now?

An undisputed heavyweight championship fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua? Terence Crawford and Errol Spence settling things at welterweight? Canelo vs GGG 3 at whatever weight they’d do it? Lomachenko vs Teofimo or Tank or Haney or uh Lee Selby? Naoya Inoue against someone at 118 or 122? Kenshiro Teraji vs Hiroto Kyoguchi at 108? Charlo vs Charlo?

It doesn’t have to be any of those, I’m just spitballing and filling a word count here. And it doesn’t have to be what you think is the BIGGEST or most SIGNIFICANT fight, either — if your must-have fight is, like, Ryota Murata vs Jeff Horn because you just think it’d be a good fight, so be it. It’s your call.
