Macklin - Barker - Murray - McEwan - BJ Saunders
Munroe - Frampton - Quigg - Galahad

Two very exciting divisions there for U.K boxing.

That said there are some seriously exciting prospects breaking through in the U.S now. The likes of Gary Russell Jr. Jose Benevidez Jr looks absolutely superb. 2013 will be a big year for those guys.

I still haven't watched Benavidez fight yet but been hearing about him for years, I hope he lives up to the hype.

As for the question, I don't know what is more exciting. It's all Boxing to me so I get excited no matter where the fighters are from. I'm never particularly proud or ashamed of British Boxing, I'm not patriotic at all though so that's probably why.

This topic is a matter of opinion of course. There is absolutely no fact in it at all....

um no but it's a solid scene and I have respect for the UK fanbase who are far more supportive of their fighters than anywhere else. your domestic champs get more support and fame at home than legit pound for pound level champs in North america get at home.

Has any American fighter ever had the kind of support and fanbase that the likes of Hatton and Calzaghe did?

Right now it's pretty good and it's hard not to be a fan of Froch and Burns. Haye, Khan, and Harrison have been huge letdowns and the rest are ho hum. Quality wise tho, doesn't even come close to the 90's group much, much respect to that batch of UK fighters. Aside from Froch and Burns the rest have alot to be desired. Still waiting on Brook.
