Default Re: Does Britain p4p have the best group of fighters in Europe?

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 - ??
Good list. Yeah middle and light middle are weaker in Britain but I'd say Campillo is arguably the best LHW in Europe. Though it's close with Bellew and Cleverly no doubt
