    There's 3 undefeated champions all with no fights booked, is there a chance at any of the titles being unified any time soon? I can't help but think Callum Smith vs David Benavidez would be a great fight and any chance that GGG moves up to fight one of the super middleweight champions?

    Golovkin seems to make 160 fairly easily often coming in at 159 so it would surprise me if he did.

    I'd like to see Ramirez take the step up in competition and fight one of them personally. I don't know if I see Smith taking a big fight next though. Maybe a moderate challenge first and then one of them.

    Benavidez KO's Smith/Ramirez, so they'll be ducking for a bit I bet.

    Benavidez vs Ramirez is a 50/50 fight imo. Interestingly enough, Benavidez sparred GGG and Ramirez sparred Canelo. I actually think Benavidez vs Ramirez could have a series in itself.
