Possible Boxing Matches and Tournaments

Here are fights and mini-tournaments I'd like to see:

Heavyweight:
Wladimir Klitschko vs. Vitali Klitschko for the true heavyweight championship of the world. I don't get why they won't fight. I love my brother very much, but I would punch him in the face right now for free. You don't even have to give me a belt.

A tournament with:
David Haye vs. Tomasz Adamek
Alexander Povetkin vs. Robert Helenius
This isn't the greatest tournament, but we need second tier heavyweights to fight each other to get better. Right now, they feast on washed up vets and then get thrown into a big money fight with a Klitschko and receive a beating.

Light heavyweight:
The winner of Lucian Bute-Jean Pascal to face the winner of Carl Froch-Mikkel Kessler.
If Froch wins, we'll have a rematch either way, but it's likely that all three fights would be entertaining in this little tournament.

Middleweight:
Either Sergio Martinez vs. Floyd Mayweather
or
A tournament with:
Sergio Martinez vs. Peter Quillin
Gennady Golovkin vs. Julio Cesar Chavez
This would make money and create a new star. I'd pick a Quillin-Golovkin final with Golovkin capturing the middleweight crown.

Welterweight:
Victor Ortiz vs. Amir Khan
Andre Berto vs. Timothy Bradley

This tournament doesn't feature the best welterweights- in fact three of them have not lived up to expectations- but it damn sure would be exciting. Ortiz, Khan, and Berto all have power. All four men have been knocked down often. Bradley has the least power, but the most will. The winner would be back in the mix for a big fight. If Bradley won't be in, how about Keith Thurman? Although that might make the fights less exciting.

Junior welterweight:
The winner of Lamont Peterson-Lucas Matthysse against the winner of a Danny Garcia vs. Adrien Broner fight.

Another fight I'd like to see soon, but maybe not right away is Terence Crawford vs. Broner. it wouldn't be action-packed, but it would be a match for those who enjoy the technical side of boxing.

Featherweight:
Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Gary Russell Jr.
Maybe not right away for this one either, bu I'd like to see Russell begin to step up and face the best in and around his weight class.

Junior featherweight
Guillermo Rigondeax vs. Abner Mares
Perhaps the winner (I predict Rigondeax) could face the Gamboa-Russell winner eventually, potentially setting up an all-Cuban battle for the crown of best little man int he world.

Mares vs. Leo Santa Cruz
That would be a fun one.
