Anthony Joshua defends his title as world heavyweight against Kubrat Pulev in an exciting homecoming match - and The Panel have their predictions.

  Anthony Joshua defends his title as world heavyweight against Kubrat Pulev in an exciting homecoming match - and The Panel have their predictions. Pulev, Britain's unification champion, will face Pulev tonight in Wembley at The SSE Arena. The live broadcast is on Sky Sports Box Office. Joshua won and Joshua remains on track for a huge clash with WBC champion Tyson Fury. Joshua will defend his WBA and IBF belts with a rousing victory. Or can Pulev, the mandatory IBF challenger, seriously threaten his future plans. Carl Froch AJ will take his time early on. He will take two to three rounds to discover his range, become comfortable, and then feel confident. When he begins to land in the middle to late rounds, Pulev will step in to take his punches and then sit down so that Pulev feels them. He should apply pressure with power and pace. He can stop the stoppage and get him out in the eighth round or ninth. This is not going to work. AJ will be tough on him. He should be a bit more as

  Floyd Mayweather was America's greatest boxer, but can other fighters in the United States replicate his success? The Panel has voted... Mayweather continues to show his talents in exhibition bouts. Logan Paul, a YouTuber, will be sharing the ring in February with the multi-weight champion of the world. Can any American talent match Mayweather's popularity and accomplishments? Carl Froch Gervonta Davis. He has a flashy look and can bang too. Davis is a defensive player, but he's also a very exciting person because he's so aggressive. He has a little bit of Naseem Haider about him. Davis has that confidence mixed with a little arrogance which can be a good thing when entertaining. Adam Smith Although I'm aware that Shakur Stevenson is popular, Vergil Ortiz Jr. is my favorite. He's been a friend from the beginning. He's an exceptional talent, and I expect him to succeed in 2021. There are glimpses. I mean only glimpses of Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barre

  Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua could meet next year. But who would win in a world title fight undisputed? The Panel has voted... British rivals are currently in talks over a major fight that would see the winner crowned the No 1 heavyweight in the world. Will Joshua or Fury complete the WBC, WBA IBF, and WBO belt collection? We have listened to the opinions of Sky Sports experts... Carl Froch Stoppage is the only way Anthony Joshua can win this fight. Fury is just too good at range, so he can't outbox him. He's awkward and throws punches at all angles. Joshua is an Olympic gold medallist, has strong fundamentals, and can throw combination punches with aggression. Fury can be defeated if he has the same finishing instinct as he did in previous fights. AJ can help Fury get out of that situation, and I believe he can. You saw his aggressiveness in the Kubrat Pulev battle. If AJ believes that, he can stop Fury. But if he doesn’t, he’ll lose points. Adam Smith This is the greatest

  Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua hold the all-time world heavyweight title, but are there any British contenders? The Panel has selected some potential contenders... Britain is currently the dominant top division. Joshua recently retained the WBA and IBF belts with a ninth round knockout of Kubrat Pulev. Fury was the WBC champion when she stopped Deontay Wilder. Which domestic contenders might challenge for the world title? Carl Froch Joe Joyce is my favorite. He sparred hundreds of rounds at England's squad during my last four, five year career. I also saw him with AJ. Although he doesn't appear capable when he is in control and takes his chances, he is more than capable when he gets into the ring with anyone. That was evident against Daniel Dubois when everyone was expecting Dubois' win. He busted him with a jab, but it wasn't close. He's 35 years old, I know that. But he's strong and fit. Adam Smith Joe Joyce is the name to look for in 2021 if you are looking

  Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua is a highly anticipated showdown. However, our panel of experts has also selected other dream fights they would like to see in 2021. Many boxing fans want to see a world heavyweight title fight, but there are other exciting matches that could be exciting. The Panel selected three fights they believe can be delivered next year... Carl Froch Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury Both of the best heavyweights are British, and they have to fight when they are at their peak. We cannot allow politics or belts to get in the way. Teofimo Lopez vs Gervonta Davis Lopez is a great fighter. It was against Vasyl Lomachenko. Were Lomachenko slightly injured? Perhaps, but maybe not. But Lopez looks top level. I was there to see Davis fight and thought, "This kid can fight." He has great power and movement. Terence Crawford vs Errol Spencer Jr We all know Errol Spence Jr is a bad guy. We've seen him in action against Kell Brook. Spence Jr handled business as he does

  The best young talents in Britain have been spotted this year. But which rising talent should we be paying attention to in 2021? The Panel has voted... British boxing continues producing a number of promising prospects who hope to emulate world champions like Tyson Fury and Josh Taylor. Which fighters are recognized by our Sky Sports specialists? Carl Froch Conor Benn. Conor Benn is only 24 years old, but he is an amazing talent. He has the right mindset, believes in himself, and is entertaining to watch. He should fight Josh Kelly. I want to see them both, but Josh Kelly has to beat David Avanesyan. Conor's win over Sebastian Formella was impressive. He had to settle for a point win at the end. It doesn't always take the stoppage, and it will be fascinating to see where he goes. Adam Smith I will vote for Ellie Scotney. In the past six months, women's boxing has risen by the thousands and Savannah Marshall was the most impressive performer of the year. Although it's

Although Josh Kelly felt some pressure after his defeat by David Avanesyan, he should feel a renewed desire to succeed in the future, says Johnny Nelson.

  Although Josh Kelly felt some pressure after his defeat by David Avanesyan, he should feel a renewed desire to succeed in the future, says Johnny Nelson. Kelly was put to the ultimate test in his career when he started well but then began to fade as Avanesyan’s constant pressure finally overwhelmed him at The SSE Arena, Wembley, Saturday night. After two knockdowns in round 6, Kelly's trainer Adam Booth had to abandon him. Sky Sports expert Nelson wanted to see how Kelly recovers from this first loss. Nelson said that they discussed the importance of a gut check during times of pressure. Sky Sports "I don't think Josh Kelly doesn't have the guts to fight. He can fight. But you know that when you're under pressure and you have to find your way out, this was what was happening. This is what was unravelling. Josh needs to think again. He has things to improve on. He has things to improve upon. He is very adept at identifying the rhythm of a fighter's movements
