Plenty of good fighters to follow in the boxing this year. We've got someone decent in almost every division. Looking forward to announcements soon about who's next for Tim Tszyu, Justis Huni, Jai Opetaia and George Kambosos in particular. Big year coming up.

Nikita Tszyu began his professional career with an impressive 2nd round TKO victory over Aaron Stahl last Thursday night. A powerful puncher with both hands. Will need to see him against a more seasoned opponent, but he looks very strong and was several grades above Stahl.

Meanwhile brother Tim Tszyu will have his first fight in the USA on March 27 against American Terrell Gausha who has a 22-2-1 record. This will be another tough test which he must win to get his title shot later this year.

SBW in a first round KO of the former AFL hardman Barry Hall. He has now reportedly called out Paul Gallen after Gallen has said he wants to get in the squared ring with him for the last decade. SBW looks very fit and I reckon will easily clean up with more ex-footballer pay days.

Tim Tszyu wins by a 12 round decision after being knocked down in the first round of his match against Terrell Gausha. Still undefeated is Tim and looking for his deserved title shot.

Tyson Fury wins by KO over Dillian Whyte in Round 6 and wants to retire on top of the Boxing world. He then suggests he might try wrestling or mma. What about action movies Tyson? Both goodies and baddies are paid well. He is easily the best Heavy Weight of the current era.

Harry has decent skills but lacks the punching power to be a top flight professional. Nikita Tszyu's heavy hands will take him further.

Agree Dubs, Garside has the boxers craft. He reminds me a bit of a young John Famechon. Skilled at not being hit and building up the points to win matches or have the match stopped in his favour. He is still only 24 and early in his professional career.

Nikita Tszyu is in another category. The blood lines and regular sparring with his brother Tim, have him at a greater stage of development. If he continues with his knock out performances he may well become Australia's version of 'Hands of Stone'. We've not seen him against another heavy puncher yet. Australian boxing fans have a lot to look forward to with the Tszyu's and Garside coming through.
