Saunders, Smith and Fury
Saunders, Smith and Fury

1. Tyson Fury
Insert your own ’He’s had more trainers than JD Sports’ variation here. The uber-talented heavyweight "Gypsy King" has worked with, among others, Brian Hughes, Rob McCracken, Emanuel Steward, Hughie Fury Sr, Peter Fury and Ben Davison. Now, heading into his crucial February 22 rematch with WBC king Deontay Wilder, the unbeaten traveller has upped sticks once again.
Coach: SugarHill Steward
Base: Detroit
Selected stablemates: Anthony Dirrell; Shohjahon Ergashev

 

2. Callum Smith
Undefeated, like everyone on this list, and the consensus super-middle ruler, Smith is crying out for a defining fight. He is quite possibly the greatest success story for his longtime trainer, who is beyond proven and obsessed with boxing (in a good way).
Coach: Joe Gallagher
Base: Bolton
Selected stablemates: Liam Smith; Callum Johnson; Hosea Burton

 

3. Josh Taylor
Recently unified two of the major super-lightweight world titles, yet the best remains almost certainly still to come for the Prestonpans man. A highly accomplished amateur, Taylor also was the first boxer taken by his trainer from pro debut to global glory.
Coach: Shane McGuigan
Base: Canterbury
Selected stablemates: Luke Campbell; Lawrence Okolie; Chris Billam-Smith

 

4. Billy Joe Saunders
The trickiest one given the slick super-middleweight and two-division champ has yet to confirm who he will train under for his next fight. Having begun his pro career under Jimmy Tibbs, the southpaw moved briefly to Davison, then Dominic Ingle, back to Ben then returned to the Wincobank for his last camp. We will go with the latter, for now.
Coach: Dominic Ingle
Base: Sheffield
Selected stablemates: Kid Galahad; Liam Williams.

 

5. Josh Warrington
This flying featherweight has scalped Carl Frampton and Galahad in recent years. Josh is hoping to agree a unification clash with exciting American Shakur Stevenson for 2020 and he will do so under the expert tutelage of the man that knows him best, his father.
Coach: Sean O’Hagan
Base: Batley
Selected stablemates: Reece Mould, Maxi Hughes
