Frank Warren on Khan, Froch, Ward, Chisora, More

By Frank Warren

A is for Andre Ward. He's WBA super-middleweight champion and could be the next big thing in the States.

B is for Bomber Bellew. Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion Tony wants a Battle of Britain with Nathan Cleverly. Could be a big one by the end of the year.

C is for Carl Froch. He should make the Super Six final because he'll be too strong and too young for Glen Johnson in the semis. His likely opponent will be Andre Ward.

D is for Dereck Chisora. He still wants his shot against Wladimir Klitschko - and unlike David Haye, did sign for the fight.

E is for European middleweight champion Matt Macklin. A world title fight will bring out the best in him.

F is for Frankie Gavin. Our only ever amateur world champ will be a star!

G is for Goldenboy. Oscar De La Hoya wants to be top dog in the States, but faces stiff competition from his former promoter Bob Arum.

H is for hope - that Evander Holyfield will hang up his gloves.

I is for ITV. Hopefully either they or the BBC get back into boxing.

J is for James DeGale. If he fights five or six times in 2011, he'll be banging on the door for a world title shot.

DeGALE ... title shot
DeGALE ... title shot
K is for Amir Khan. He needs to fight at least three times next year. His proposed fight in April is a good start.

L is for Liam Walsh. He could be the biggest thing to come out of East Anglia since ermmm... tractors!

M is for Manny Pacquiao. This year could be his last in boxing as he can't combine life as politician AND fighter.

N is for Nathan Cleverly. He wants the winner of the unification fight between Jurgen Brahmer and Beibut Shumenov next weekend.

O is for Olympics. The 2012 Games in London will help boost boxing's profile because we've got really talented amateur fighters.

P is for Pretty Boy. Floyd's been more of a Naughty Boy recently. He has a number of court cases hanging over him.

Q is Quality. And there'll be plenty next year!

R is for Ricky Burns, the UK's nicest world champion.

S is for Special K. Kell Brook is from the same production line as Naseem Hamed, and could be just as exciting in 2011.

T is for Thirty one. That's how many years I've been in the sport - I'm still having the time of my life.

U is for unification fights. There should be more this year.

V is for Vitali Klitschko. David Haye seems to have forgotten there are two brothers.

W is for Wladimir Klitschko. The fight Haye keeps telling us he wants.

X is for X-rated. There are always one of two out-and-out wars, so make sure you watch as much boxing as possible!

Y is for young talent. Look out for the likes of Ronnie Heffron, Paul Butler, Craig Evans, Ryan and Michael Walsh, Stephen Smith and John Thain.

Z is for Zzzzzzz. Hopefully we won't have to witness a fight as bad as Haye-Harrison in 2011.

He's a massive cunt but the huge cards he's putting on at the moment with his young contenders are great for the sport in Britain.
