Default Which Country has the Best Prospects?

Not a Poll - Just which country do you think has the best prospect and are going to have the most world champions in the Next 4 years.

I'm going to go with United Kingdom - After an impressive showing at the last Olympics, they currently have an impressive Crop of Fighters that could be Future World Champions:

Nathan Ceverly
James Degale
George Groves
Frankie Gavin
Matty Askin
Billy Joe Saunders
Martin Murray
Kell Brook
Scott Quigg

Remember these names - All future Champions

All hold some good/great potential. The standout ones for me are DeGale, Gavin, and Saunders.

I like Frankie Gomez and Shawn Porter - Don't know much about the rest. Out of your list, who would you say are the main ones to watch.

Uk and it's not even close

Cleverly
DeGale
Groves
Frankie Gavin
Billy Joe Saunders
Khan (not even hit his prime yet)
Lewis Rees
Fury and Chisora - (the future of the heavyweight scene)
David Price
Bellew
Kell Brook
McClosky - can come back and win a world title
John Murrey and Kevin Mitchell

These will never go anywhere near the Pacquiao or Mayweather territory, but all can grab a version of the world title.

Probably the WBO version knowing any Frank ****** fighter - i.e the ****** Boxing Organisation

Do you think Degale has more potential than Groves?

Agree Gavin and Saunders look great.

Cleverley has just won his 1t belt and looks very good

No reason to insult the brits it's not like Henry will ever have a career in boxing either. Just saying you need to balance **** out.

Honestly, yes. I believe he needed this defeat for him to reach his full potential...like I said in another thread yesterday, Khan is virtually the perfect example.

I was hoping Groves would push DeGale on Saturday, I wasn't too confident that he would beat DeGale...but I wanted Groves to test DeGales heart, chin, etc...put him in a back and forth bout.

I can see both improving as they step up opposition. Saunders relaxed style whilst throwing varied combinations is easy on the eyes.

I guess you can still count him as a prospect, and yeah, I think if he can improve his defense, and start working behind good gameplans...he could be among the Worlds best in his weight class for a long time.

Martin Murray? Tony Bellew?



I can't see either picking up a world title, especially not Bellew.
