Default Top 10 British Boxers?

In your view who are the top 10 british boxers at the moment?

I would choose:

Joe Calzaghe
Ricky Hatton
David Haye
Carl Froch
Nicky Cook
Enzo Maccarinelli
Kevin Mitchell
Junior Witter
John Thaxton
Amir Khan/John Murray



How about your views ?

Put Witter above Cook and nudge everyone else down a notch and you are about there.

Does anyone think witter has enough left to be able to regain a world title ? and will 2009 be the year that we see Mitchell have a world title shot?

there are three that are clearly in the elite bracket:

Calzaghe, Hatton, Haye (1-3)

Near elite (when coupled with am background):

Froch (4)

Top contender type fighters:

Witter, Cook, Maccarinelli (5-7))

huge potential and already at the fringe level:

Mitchell, Khan (8-9)

Fringe level:

Herbie Hide (10)
