Who do think will be the future professional boxing stars to come out of the Tokyo Olympics?

Kal Yafai
Beijing Olympian

Jalalov (91&kgs), with his punch power and technique, and Keyshawn Davis (63kgs) with his all-round ability. My brother Galal can box on the inside so fluently and is as effective at long range. Pat McCormack and Ben Whittaker have unreal ability and Frazer Clarke, because he’s a big, bad heavyweight.

Paul Smith
Former British champion

I love watching the McCormack twins. I think Pat is special. I really rate and like Lauren Price, the middleweight, and think she is destined to have a glittering pro career. I’d love to see Frazer Clarke have the rub over the green over there and can see him standing out as a professional post-Tokyo.

Of the men I’ll go for Cuban Andy Cruz, Ukrainian Oleksandr Khyzhniak and GB welterweight Pat McCormack. Of the women I’ll say GB featherweight Karriss Artingstall, Irish lightweight Kellie Harrington and GB middleweight Lauren Price. Maybe a bit GB heavy but hey, sue me.

Paul Ready
Boxing manager

Lauren Price with her ability to judge distance, her timing and footwork. Galal Yafai boxes like an Eastern European with pressure and workrate. But there’s also Karriss Artingstall, Pat McCormack, Frazer Clarke and Ben Whittaker, and outside of GB Oleksandr Khyzhniak.
