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

The middleweights, however, do need to fight each other. Seems like Murray and Barker want the fights to happen but Macklin, in a typically "I think I am a world beater" way, has decided that the fights are below him.
Why leave it until world level when they might not even legitimately hit that level!

It's about levels and a present Quigg-Frampton, Price-Fury etc are on the same level.

The only reason you wouldn't match them up is because one might lose but boxing fans need to get over the dreaded L.

History shows that many of our fighters who have suffered tough early losses have grown from the loss i.e. Haye and Khan, even DeGale.
