The eyes of the world were on Carl Froch's rematch with George Groves for the IBF and WBA super middleweight titles at Wembley Stadium, bringing boxing back to the halcyon days of Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn.

Many scores were settled in 2014. The curtain was drawn on Tony Bellew's feud with cruiserweight rival Nathan Cleverly, heavyweight boss Tyson Fury wiped out London foe Dereck Chisora and Billy Joe Saunders silenced the doubters to outbox Chris Eubank Jr.

But as we enter 2015, there's still plenty of mouth-watering match-ups to be made. So here are my top five fights that just HAVE to be delivered in 2015.

TOP FIVE FIGHTS FOR 2015: 5. Adonis Stevenson Vs Sergey Kovalev: A fight between two of the sport's most ferocious punchers looked a done deal for 2014. But unfortunately promotional wranglings got in the way of a potentially explosive clash between the world's best light-heavyweights. WBC champion Stevenson had a breakout 2013, ripping the title from American Chad Dawson in one round before stopping former champ Tavoris Cloud and the aforementioned Bellew. However 2014 somewhat of a disappointment for "Superman", facing lesser opposition in the form of Andrej Fonfara and Dmitry Sukhotsky. For Kovalev however, it was a truly stellar year. After routine stoppage wins over Cedric Agnew and Blake Capallero in New Jersey, the WBO champion faced his biggest test to date in the form of IBF king Bernard Hopkins. The 49-year-old icon showed his age as he was given a boxing lesson by the Russian, potentially ending his career after almost three glorious decades. Stevenson and Kovalev are on collision course but if we are going to see them collide, it may not be until the second half of the year. Kovalev is set to face Canadian Jean Pascal in Montreal next March while it's likely Stevenson will have to face his mandatory challenger first. Let's just hope we see it next year and not in 2016.

4. James DeGale Vs George Groves II: All eyes were on the super middleweights in 2014 as George Groves went to battle with old foe Carl Froch at Wembley Stadium. Froch put the controversy of their previous fight to bed by obliterating Groves with a right hand in the eighth round. The 26-year-old Londoner has since bounced back from the crushing defeat, winning the European title from Frenchman Christopher Rebrasse but struggled against American Denis Douglin, a former light middleweight, on the Bellew-Cleverly bill in November. After months of speculation it is still unclear if division kingpin Froch will land his dream fight in Las Vegas against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. This could set up Groves for a rematch with another old rival. Olympic gold medalist James DeGale had a flawless 2014, winning an IBF final eliminator on the Froch-Groves undercard in stunning fashion, viciously despatching of Brandon Gonzales. DeGale too appeared on the Bellew-Cleverly card and made short work of stubborn Mexican Marco Antonio Periban. And his efforts will be rewarded as regardless of what happens with Froch, "Chunky" is guaranteed a shot at the IBF title next. Should Froch cave in to promoter Eddie Hearn's wish to vacate the title, Groves and DeGale could do battle again, this time for the world title. DeGale lost a controversial points decision to Groves in 2011 and the hate between the two is clear for all to see. Picture this: Groves and DeGale fight for the title early next year, Froch fights the winner. A mouth-watering prospect.

3. Carl Frampton Vs Scott Quigg: Britain's two leading super-bantamweights have been calling each other out for the last three years. Belfast idol Frampton had a year to remember in 2014 as he battered Spanish rival Kiko Martinez at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast to win the IBF title. Quigg, the WBA regular (long story) champion, had a busy year of title defences, crushing South African Tshifhiwa Munyai and Belgium's Stephane Jamoye on headline shows at the Phones4U Arena in Manchester and a tough 12-rounds with Japanese hardman Hidenori Otake. However, it was Frampton that stole all the headlines for picking up a "legitimate" world title. Quigg has come under fierce criticism for supposedly not having a "proper" world title but he did not let that affect his performances in 2014. Touted fights with WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz and the aforementioned Martinez fell through but there's only one match-up that excites British fight fans. A unification fight with Frampton in either Belfast or Manchester has the boxing world salivating. Discussions between both camps have taken place countless times in the last two years but Frampton Vs Quigg still hasn't been made. If 2015 is going to be the year, then it will have to come in the second half. Frampton will make a mandatory defence of his title in Belfast against American Chris Avalos in February while Quigg will be out of action until the summer with a hand injury sustained in the Otake fight. The fighters want it, the people want it, but politics may put this battle of Britain on ice for another year.

2. Kell Brook Vs Amir Khan: Kell Brook produced undoubtedly one of the greatest victories of 2014. The Sheffield star travelled to Carson City, California to snatch the IBF welterweight title from the waist of rugged American Shawn Porter in August. That epic night in the StubHub Center launched Brook into the upper echelons of the sport alongside the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. But there's only one name on his mind. A fight with bitter rival Amir Khan is now closer than it's ever been thanks to the Porter win. Khan, however is nowhere near as interested as he licks his lips at the prospect of a fight with pound-for-pound king Mayweather next year. And he has every right to after an outstanding 2014. The former light-welterweight world champion moved up to 140lbs to demolish dangerous Puerto Rican Luis Collazo in May before a punch-perfect performance against slick American Devon Alexander in December. Both victories were hailed as two of Khan's finest wins as a professional. The ageing Mayweather is now firmly in his sights with many experts tipping Khan to potentially end the 37-year-old great's undefeated streak. But a fight with Mayweather is by no means a guarantee. Khan thought he had the bout sealed for May but Mayweather opted to fight Argentinian danger man Marcos Maidana instead. Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn has made it his mission for 2015 to deliver Brook Vs Khan at Wembley in the summer. It's a huge fight, potentially bigger than Froch Vs Groves. The coming weeks will be crucial. If Khan gets even the slightest sniff that Mayweather wants to fight him, Brook will be cast adrift. But if Mayweather decides Khan's not worth the risk, then we could be in for something special under the famous arch.

1. Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao: I know, I know, we've been here before. In fact, almost everyday for the last six years. But is literally now or never for the most eagerly awaited fight in boxing history to come to fruition. Both Floyd Mayweather, 38 next year, and Manny Pacquiao, 36, are beginning to look past their sell-by dates. "Money" Mayweather has showed signs of slowing in his two outings against Marcos Maidana this year. And although impressive against Timothy Bradley and Chris Algieri, it wasn't long ago that "Pacman" was brutally knocked out by famous foe Juan Manuel Marquez. A fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao has looked dead in the water so many times. But no matter how often it's falls through, fight fans cannot resist dreaming about boxing's premier pugilists finally doing battle. Mayweather said recently that he "absolutely" wants to fight Pacquiao. Pacquiao wants to fight Mayweather. But if it's this simple why haven't they fought already? I hear you ask. Money, that's why. Mayweather balked at the idea of a 50-50 split suggested by Pacquiao's, and formerly Mayweather's, promoter Bob Arum, instead demanding a 60-40. Mayweather insists that the fight has not happened due to Arum's involvement in negotiations, stating that he would never do business with Arum again. The tedious negotiations and politicking have left a sour taste in the mouths of many fans. But that doesn't mean they don't want to see it happen. The clock's ticking however and if the fight falls through again next year, it will never happen. That's a guarantee.​
