Last Updated: 29/08/19 7:32am
Hughie Fury is still just 24 but which heavyweight from the emerging era has impressed our experts?
Fury has the chance to propel himself into world title contention if he beats Alexander Povetkin on the undercard to Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Luke Campbell, live on Sky Sports Box Office. Fury is part of a new generation...
Daniel Dubois is coming through slowly but surely. He is a blank canvas who could learn massively.
Martin Bakole is good, he's a tidy fighter. We've had him in our gym to spar. I know he lost to Michael Hunter but that was inexperience.
Bakole can be a danger-man but needs to transfer his skill into the ring .
He can fight, and I predict him to go on to do big things. He can be a danger man but needs to transfer his skill into the ring - that will come with experience.
If Oleksandr Usyk can make the transition he will be a serious threat because of his skill-set. He can box well, hit well, fight well.
Usyk is unbelievably talented.
This is provided he can make the transition into the new weight division. That is totally unknown.
Cruiserweights have done it in the past - Usyk is bigger than David Haye, who became a champion at heavyweight.
If he continues to be a student of the sport, Daniel Dubois will go all the way and get a world title.
Dubois will win a world title one day.
As a heavyweight you can quickly run through the division but he will need more learning to gain experience before he is thrown into big fights.
Despite his size, Oleksandr Usyk will make a big splash at heavyweight.
Usyk has got the ability to beat them all.
Yes, the size and range of some heavyweights could be Usyk's undoing but he has the boxing brain to negate that. The same thing you see with Vasiliy Lomachenko - they are not the biggest but their brains allow them to outmanoeuvre an opponent.
