Default All British "World" title challengers since 2000

As i am very bored and despite the fact i have been a fan of the sport for a few years I sometimes hear hear of a recent fighter that i wasnt aware had had a "world" title shot. So I want to see if Brit ESB can name all British "world" (only WBO WBA WBC IBF) title challengers of the past decade.

I will name a few obvious ones to get the ball rolling
Hatton
Witter
Enzo
Haye
Rees
Woods
Calzaghe
Hamed
Lewis
Jennings
Lockett
Khan
Froch

I'm not sure Arthur really counts.

Apologies in advance to Dunky.

I was thinking the same mate but he did lose it in the ring in a World title Fight so I supposed you CAN have him on the list.

Yeah it's open to debate.

I just think Alex looks a bit silly calling himself a world champion when he never actually won a world title fight.

I know Maccarinelli was gifted his WBOgus title but at least he defended it a few times against decent opponents.

Yep

I'm really not too happy about him calling himself/being called an Ex-World Champ because he won it by default out of the ring and never once defended it therefore his hand had never ever been raised in triumph as one

Would you consider Ken Norton as being a 'world' champ?
