Excellent post from a generally superb poster.

Froch, however, lost when he went toe-to-toe with America's finest. Burns will meet a similar fate when he toes it up with Broner.

Haye bottled it against Wlad, and Khan is another KO waiting to happen.

All in all having to worthwhile fighters from a boxing mad country is not overly impressive.
