Furthermore Amir Khan has achieved more then Povetkin, Lebedev and Wlodarczyk. Why does he not warrant a mention?
And if we're talking historically England have been the most successful nation in the whole of Europe by some distance.
And Lewis is from Canada, right?! What are you talking about? Get you sh$t together. Golovkin has Russian roots It is the same with another prominent fighter from Kazakhstan - Vassily Jirov. Both are of Russian origin.
Khan gets beaten every time he steps up. What he has done besides his gift against Kotelnik. Had he fought him outside of the UK, he would have dreamed about a belt.
I wasn't talking hystorically but at this point.
