I think Cleverly and Bellew would batter any European fighter. If you were to go through the weightclasses and pick the best European fighter in each I believe Brits would be at the top of most:

Heavyweight - Wlad Klitschko

Cruiser - Marco Huck

Light Heavy - Nathan Cleverly

Super Middleweight - Carl Froch (there's an argument for Kessler but he's not been very active and didn't look great against Allan 'Bum' Green)

Middle - Pirog (Does Golovkin count as European? If so I'd say him)

Light Middle - Sergei Dzinziruk

Welter - Kell Brook

Light Welter - Amir Khan

Lightweight - Ricky Burns

Super Feather - Liam Walsh/Vitali Tajbert

Feather - Lee Selby

Super Bantam - Carl Frampton

Bantam - Jamie McDonnell

Super Fly - Paul Butler

Flyweight - ??
