1. Tyson Fury is primed for a world title challenge

No weight class is as precarious as the heavyweights so, with a WBO title crack guaranteed, promoter Frank Warren will have been elated that his unbeaten charge made it through a potentially dangerous assignment with Romanian banger Christian Hammer unscathed.

And with each passing outing, the Wilmslow gypsy's chances of springing an upset over either Wladimir Klitschko or Deontay Wilder become increasingly credible.

This trip across the tightrope fully served its purpose in enabling Fury to bag eight crucial rounds against a world ranked foe, whilst showcasing his flourishing wares to HBO President Ken Hershman, who was perched ringside.

There was so much to admire. Given his 6ft 9in, 18 ??st frame, the 26-year-old possesses sizzling speed, fabulous skill and movement and he is becoming increasingly adept at fully utilising his telescopic reach to negate credible opposition.

Graduation beckons and the timing appears perfect for him to make his leap into the world championship arena. Expect it to materialise against Klitschko at a soccer stadium in either Germany or London this September.

2. Chris Eubank Jr is the real deal

The Brighton enigma is fast becoming one of the most coveted stars of British boxing.

Chris Eubank Jr

Following a second successive candidate for domestic Fight of the Year, the enigma who was ridiculed prior to his triple title tilt with Billy Joe Saunders in late November is presently white hot after collecting the 'interim' WBA middleweight gong in a titanic struggle with previously unbeaten Russian nugget Dmitry Chudinov. He possesses both the talent and mystique to evolve into a mainstream star.

A bright, impressive young man, with just 19 pro gigs on his ledger and nominal amateur experience, Eubank Jr is developing at a frightening rate. This was a significantly more polished and refined effort than he gave against Saunders.

He is now acquiring a back foot game to supplement his obvious strength and aggression and, once again, he gave evidence that he has inherited his father's fabled fighting heart and tungsten chin.

Having coasted through the opening half against Saunders, this time he sustained a frenetic pace for the full 12 rounds and clearly he carries his power late.

Though comfortably ahead on all three official cards, he still had the energy and spite to execute his disturbingly stubborn and courageous opponent in the contest's final minute.

Bookmakers are now installing him as a clear favourite for the inevitable re-sit with Saunders; the scrap all Britain craves to see again.

3. Liam Walsh is ready for major international title fights

The Cromer super-feather delivered arguably the most complete performance of his 18 fight, seven year pro career to destroy Manchester's 2008 Olympian and ex-world amateur bronze medallist Joe Murray.

In their previous spat 17 months ago, 'Destiny' had been extended to a 12 round majority decision but gave clear evidence of improvement here to suffocate Murray with tireless two fisted torrents, then force him to turn his back after detonating a savage short right uppercut to the jaw half way through round five.

It was a first defence of the British title he won in late November and his sixth success in a Commonwealth title scrap.

With Walsh already ranked with the WBO and IBF, don't discount promoter Frank Warren delivering a world title shot before the year is through.

4. Bradley Skeete, Lewis Pettitt & Frank Buglioni worthy of British title shots

The holy trinity of London starlets all blitzed Eastern European opposition in the opening frame.

Bradley Skeete

Skeete's narrow British and Commonwealth title reverse to world ranked Frankie Gavin has actually caused his confidence to rocket and he wasted no time brutalising his foe. One raking right hand actually lifted his opponent clean off the canvas and re-iterated that the Penge six footer is finally adding beef to supplement his silky skills.

Should conqueror Gavin opt to abdicate either belt, expect to find the 27-year-old south Londoner in one corner when the vacant belts are contested.

Box stablemate Pettitt was equally ruthless. The 24-year-old Erith super-bantam is already ranked fifth with the WBA but will no doubt have a watchful eye on this Friday's vacant British title spat between Jazza Dickens and Josh Wale.

While Steve and Paschal Collins have been commissioned with shoring up super-middle Buglioni's defence, the adjustments certainly haven't compromised his feted power. The 25-year-old 'Wise Guy' from Enfield massacred 21-3 Croatian Ivan Jukic in just 85 seconds.

Frank Buglioni

Rated ninth by the WBO, a crack at the recently vacant Commonwealth strap would be a logical next step whilst reigning British champ Paul Smith contemplates his future.

5. Boy Jones Jr & Dempsey Fury are welcome additions to the BoxNation roster

Both are graduates from the austere unlicensed circuit and have ring monikers that court immediate attention.

Chingford super-feather Jones Jr has the boy band looks to supplement his fizzing hooks and he certainly looked a well-schooled talent whilst shutting out time served Swindon circuit fighter Joe Beedon over four rounds on his pro debut.

The grandly named Dempsey Fury from Lancaster is intent on pumping much needed oxygen into Britain's stagnant light-heavyweight division.

Dempsey Fury

The 19-year-old cousin of Tyson and Hughie Fury is an earnest and exciting operator and he logged a fourth successive four round points win over Lithuania's Ernestas Dapkus.

Both have cause to view their ring futures with optimism.
