Default Last five British world title fights in the states

can anyone remember what they were? Is there an easy way of finding a list of all the British men who have fought for world titles in the states?

Depends on what you mean by "world title fights", it seems most international fights these days are for some kind of "world" trinket...

Murray/Rios was one I'm pretty sure that was last year though I could be wrong, Macklin/Martinez potentially another depending on how you see Macklin's nationality, Khan/Garcia, Barker/Martinez and aside from that I can only come up with Froch/Ward.

I'm sure there have been others in between those just spring to mind.

I think it may be this line up..

Cleverly vs Hawk
Khan vs Garcia
Macklin vs Martinez (Can take out if you don't feel he's British and change with Murray vs Rios)
Khan vs Peterson
Froch vs Ward

Funny thing is they say Europeans (inc our boys) stay away and fight only in Europe yet the list there shows British fighters heading to U.S for fights now show me the list of Americans fighting over here.

The HW's go over to Germany and get beat up for okay pay i suppose but does make me laugh when they claim we like to stay away..
