    Sorry if this has been done before, but last night's belter between Bentley & Udofia got me reminiscing about other great British title fights over the years.

    I bet there are plenty of blockbusters that I haven't seen or have flown under the radar. Please share your personal favourites. I'm offering this visceral encounter between Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran for the vacant British Welterweight title in 2018. An absolutely compelling war.

    Danny Williams Vs Mark Potter

    "He's in a no win situation" says the commentator. 15 seconds later Danny is knocking him out! Man, I will never forget this fight.

    I remember the old Ian Napa days for the British Bantamweight title.

    Fury vs Chisora 1 was a fun British heavyweight title fight.

    Alex Arthur Vs Michael Gomez was a classic.

    Jamie Moore vs Matt Macklin was a classic. One of my favourite fights ever.

    Can't remember if it was a British and Euro title fight or if any titles were on the line but Mitchell vs Murray was a good fight give it a watch

    I remember Kevin Anderson v Young Mutley fight for the British and Commenwealth welterweight titles. Anderson was knocked down heavily in the 2nd and looked to be out of the fight but dramatically turned it around in the 2nd half and stopped it in the 10th. I am sure this was a mid week ringside fight on sky.

    The obvious one is Arthur vs Gomez.
    If your were to do a poll I'd expect that fight to come top.
    Johanneson vs Gomez was decent too.

    Crolla v Matthews 1 & 2.

    Bit of an obvious one but Joshua v Whyte was a fun fight.
