Panel: Who is the best featherweight in the men’s sport?

Josh Warrington has vacated his championship, but who is the best featherweight in the world right now?

Paul Smith
World title challenger

Josh Warrington I think has proven that he’s the best, with the Carl Frampton fight as well, at the moment I don’t think any of the others are better. Gary Russell’s a talented fighter, he might beat Warrington but Warrington is probably the best fighter at the moment on achievement.

Lisa Whiteside
Commonwealth Games gold medalist

I would say Gary Russell Jnr, the American southpaw. His only defeat was to Vasiliy Lomachenko and is established at that weight. A future prospect though is Jazza Dickens for sure.

Andy Clarke
Television commentator

Josh Warrington. Ranking fighters according to my own system is about in-ring achievement, with a major factor in assessing that achievement being how recent it was and Warrington’s wins over Selby, Frampton and Galahad give him the best recent resume of any current featherweight.

Paul Ready
Boxing manager

Technically I think Gary Russell or Kid Galahad are the best. Josh Warrington has a strong CV but Russell I feel is the man you have to beat to claim the number one spot at featherweight.
