Put it this way, if British boxers were banned in America and vice versa, who do you think would lose out more? Sorry it's the UK, I wouldn't miss out on any current Brit who fights currently if they never fought again, but on the other hand if the UK couldn't get U.S. fights you guys would be missing out on dozens of great fighters who fight here on American soil...
America is where boxing reigns supreme, deal with it people...
Are you living in 1955 or something?
the vast majority of America doesn't give two ****s about boxing nowadays, and their own fighters aren't good enough in a large enough volume anymore to be content with staying at home, where they once had most of the best contenders in most of the divisions and could be assured they had faced most of the better comp without going abroad much.
Things need to be judged on a case by case basis with the way the sport is now and neither of these two are anywhere near the stage where they should be getting to dictate much.
A fight in America would be better for Burns imo, but they should be taking fights anywhere they can get them.
