10 – Jamie McDonnell
Finally a title that won’t be whipped away like a magicians tablecloth. Jamie fought an incredibly awkward and energetic Thai fighter to win the vacant WBA Bantamweight title with a display of exactly how to box on the back foot and look classy. McDonnell is rangy, has ability, and is getting better and better as he ages.
Many suspect he’ll move up a division soon and that’s where things will start to get interesting….but not before trying to line up a fight with the winner of Butler/Hall. Not the most powerful of punchers, McDonnell’s talent lies in his shot selection and ringcraft, as well as with his excellent defence.
