Default Re: why are we not producing any solid 140lb & 147lb fighters?

why do you think this is?
To be honest i think this is random garbage!

When as a nation have we produced "solid" fighters in every single weight class? it simply will not happen .....

Brook is the nations hope for the WW's, Ricky Burns may one day fight @140, i imagine he'd apply himself pretty well there, domestically the 147 lb weight class has produced some pretty good fights and fighters, not world beaters but solid guys, i imagine Gavin will be in a couple of good fights this year too
