The best British fighters are Froch and Gaye at this point. Others just fill the picture. You have alot of fighters, good venues for boxing and devoted fans.
Kotelnik beat Maidana in a close fight but beat him more clearly and a hell of alot more impressively than Khan who had it not been for the ref saving his ass and always breaking them would have been KTFO. Kotelnyk also completely schooled Alexander but he did lose to Khan. Granted Khan ran like a ****ing faggot against a feather fisted Kotelnyk to do it but he won none the less. Kotelnyk's feet aren't very fast so a potshotting runner who has no shame and can fight like a coward for 12 rounds can take advantage of it.

because, to say that ENGLAND has produced the best fighters in europe, would be a tad misleading. Britain, not England.

past and present names, of note, include

Joe C, Enzo, Cleverly, Rees - Wales

Burns, Watt - Scotland

McGuigan, Frampton - NI
McGuigan was form Rep. Of Irekand

The vast majority are unproven. However there are and have been some very good prospect's and champions of recent years.

-Calzaghe
-Froch
-Hatton
-Burns
-Haye
-Groves
-Price
-Brook
-Frampton
-Fury
-Cleverley

etc

They had a fantastic Olympics too. The skinny kid Luke Campbell who won Gold impressed me...

If anyone thinks Kotelnyk won the fight with Khan they should never watch the sport again.
