It is New Year's Eve and as many of us are busy making our wishes for the upcoming year - boxing analysts are no different.

The Sky Sports boxing panel have named the fights they would most like to see in 2018, and hopefully their dreams will come true, as there are some monumental scraps on their wishlists.

Carl Froch would like to see his former foe George Groves lace it up for a long awaited rematch with James De Gale.

The former super middleweight champ turned Sky Sports analyst believes: "They'd both be up for it, they'd both think they'll win it and above all, it is the sort of needle fight, I like. And I think most British boxing fans would like to see this again, too."

Former British and European light middleweight champ Jamie Moore is dreaming of a clash between 'Triple G' Gennady Golovkin and British world champion Billy Joe Saunders, and confidently predicts that: "I actually think if it did happen, it would certainly be a fight Billy Joe could win."

Former cruiserweight kingpin Johnny Nelson is hoping that the Hayemaker David Haye will get to meet AJ next year, believing it would be a massive British brawl.

"Joshua already has a huge, huge following but don't forget Haye does as well, so those two at Wembley Stadium, around the end of the summer, would be the one fight that would get the whole country watching."

Tony Bellew, currently preparing for his rematch with Haye, is looking at a potential superfight amongst the lighter weights, and thinks that pound for pound champ Vasyl Lomachenko versus the unbeaten Mikey Garcia would be a spectacular fight,

"I would love to see Vasyl Lomachenko against Mikey Garcia, because it's such a good fight.

"I think Lomachenko wins, but Garcia is going to pose him problems that he hasn't encountered before - punch power, punch resistance, size. Different things that Lomachenko hasn't had to handle yet, so that for me is a big, big fight."

Paulie Malignaggi, in the news this year for his controversial sparring session with the Notorious Conor McGregor, is excited by the idea of a clash at the welterweight division at which he once reigned.

"Keith Thurman and Errol Spence Jr two are the two best welterweights in the world right now, and with respect to Jeff Horn, who is a world champion for a reason, they are a level above the rest."

All huge fights so let's hope dreams do come true and these bouts actually happen in 2018.
