It's not like there's not a huge ammount of options to go for for these type of fights where you have Pulev, Povetkin, Solis, Helenius, Banks, Chagaev, Boytsov, Gerber, Pianeta, Dimitrenko, Charr, Ustinov, Gomez et.... I mean that's a lot of match ups at different levels that would be easy to sell to both Countries for fighters on the level of Price, Haye, Fury and Chisora.

I think this is the new way to go rather than the dated American angle British HW's used to inspire to break into.
That's a really good point, American's still think British HWs don't make it big until they fight in the US which as you say is very dated as the division is dominated by Europeans now.
