Default British Boxing could be heading into a golden era

So I was thinking about this last night, anybody else think we're going to see some brilliant fights both domestically and with British fighters against world level guys in the next few years? Lets take a look at potential match-ups:
Froch v Kessler II
Groves v DeGale II
Groves v Anderson II
DeGale v Anderson
Brook v Alexander
Brook v Khan
Brook v Hatton
Hatton v Khan
Price v Fury
Price v Chisora
Chisora v Helenius II
Haye v Vitali
Bellew v Cleverley II
Munroe v Quigg
Frampton v Munroe/Quigg and then potentially world level guys
Barker on the comeback trail
Ricky Burns v World level opponents
PLUS prospects like Yafai and Eubank Jnr

And I bet I've forgotten some pretty big names from that list.

Anybody else really looking forward to the next few years?

We could do with Burns and Cleverly stepping up the competition.

I doubt that even half of those fights will happen. Not at a time that they should happen anyway.

Promising time for British boxing for sure, but so much depends on the networks and promoters. The latter in particular could easily **** this up.

Decent fighters and potential fights, dont always make for a golden era.
