Default 2013 will be the year of which British fighter?

Which British fighter do you think will have an amazing 2013?

I'm going with Froch. Quigg will probably be up there in the running, too.

I'm not sure, I think Froch can beat Kessler but if a Ward rematch takes place I don't see him winning.

It would be nice to see David Price step up this year.

Froch and Kell Brook, Hopefully Price and Groves too.

It depends on opposition obviously.

I see Froch fighting Kessler and Ward and going 1-1 in those two.
Brook obviously has Alexander and then possibly a Khan fight followed by another later in the year. I think he'll go 3-0 if he beats Devon and have a great year.
Groves should finally get his shot this year and i see him beating AA and having a good year.
Pricey should beat Thompson and 2 or 3 more fringe contenders before getting his world title shot in 2014.
Young Kal Yafai will hopefully have 6 or 7 fights and begin to dominate the likes of Hall, Haskins and Jamoye.
Cleverly and Burns will continue to fight against poor opposition and just generally be irrelevant.

None of the "established" ones imo

I'll call a massive longshot, but I have a feeling Fury might knock off a Klitschko this year.

Agree with all of this.

Ricky Burns. I can see him beating Ocampo, Murray, Mitchell, maybe even Crolla all in one year.

A sterling year for any world champion.

Quite interested to see how the Matchroom fighters are going to get on, Brook going for a title, Bellew will hopefully be going for a title this year. Framton should be getting close to a title as well

Khan won't be having any huge fights maybe Lopez and Garcia so it could be a big year for him.

Froch I see him as 50 - 50 against Kessler and if he fights Ward again then he'll simply lose.

Brook maybe if he beats Alexander but that's a very tough one.

I don't think we'll see Froch/Ward II.

Carl has more winnable, more lucrative options out there.
