Default Who is the best british fighter of the last 10 years?

In your opinion, who do you think is the best (in terms of ability and boxing skill) british fighter of the last decade?

Probably Hatton. Taking into account everything, that is.

The funny thing is I thought Calzaghe was so very beatable. I still think that. But noone really came that close other than Reid.

Hatton??? Your having a laugh. Yeh he got the casual fans and the football fans into boxing but he isn't the best british boxer of the last decade.

I would say that Froch's last 10 fights over the last 4 years or so put him right up near the top far and away above Hatton's achievements. If Hatton hadn't had the fan base he had no one would talk about him now he was a 2 weight world champ but his oppostion was average until he stepped up and lost Floyd and Manny.

Glad I'm not the only one. Me and my good friend Kris the Mus used to debate how average he looks at times, but he is a great fighter.

1. Calzaghe
2. Hatton
3. Froch

Just my opinion.

Froch based on quality of resume. Calzaghe is the better boxer though but froch has tested himself more

me too.

Haye
Froch
JC
Hatton
Khan

I only rate on ability and I think this is the order of excellence. Khan would actually be first IF he was'nt glass & wasn't scared to prove it!

I think Price could well be the future, but they better start getting a move on, boxing is 'inexcusable' inactive!
