I'd have to have 'Nipper' Daly in there somewhere. That story is remarkable.

I very nearly popped my clogs, I swear I just had a mild heart attack, I don't want to be melodramatic or ott but anybody that has Calzaghe at number 1 needs to be shot.

Excatly what I thought. To say the list was made up by mutiple boxing critics there hasn't been much thought gone into it. For a start hatton has won a lot more titles that barry mcguigan

Can only go with ones I actually saw fight live and followed their careers. I dont feel I can rate fighters I never saw at their time.
1,Lennox Lewis
2,Naz
3,Nigel Benn
4,Chris Eubank
5,Loyd Honeyghan
6,Barry Maguiggan
7,Carl Froch
8,Joe Calzaghe
9,Dennis Andries
10 Herol Graham
It is hard to do,very hard and Ive probably missed out a lot of fighters who deserve to be on a list. Anyway I think all mine deserve a mention on any list of Brits.
