Its fair to say British boxing is a in a very good place right now, probably in one of the best states that it has ever been in, not just in one or two weight classes but on a whole all together in several divisions.
Taking a closer look at several champions which the UK poseses, and the potential fights on the horizon, its clear to see that boxing in the UK is booming and even with more promising times ahead. Its exciting time for all fight fans!
Recently we have had some very good domestic dust ups with the likes of Luke Campbell and Tommy Coyle, in a history night of action on a action packed Rumber On The Humber card and the action doesn’t seem to be stopping there!
With so many of these top class fighters that the UK has, its even more special having so many at the same weights, potentially allowing to make some excellent rivalries even at world level with belts at stake.
Intriguing fights such as Fury v Joshua, Groves v Smith, Brook v Khan, Selby v Warrington and Quigg v Frampton. All mouth watering fights with one already made, Callum Smith against Rocky Fielding with scouse bragging rights on offer plus another healthy domestic match up between Matchroom stable mates Frankie Gavin and Sam Eggington.
At the moment Britain has seven World Champions, with some fighting for titles in the coming months, Brook V Chaves, already confirmed earlier this week, Mc Donnell v Kameda, taking place in Texas at the weekend, Groves v Jack, on the undercard of Mr Money Mayweather himself next weekend, Smith v Thompson, Fury v Klitschko next month in Germany and hopefully Saunders v Lee after already its second delay.
By the looks of things, the UK could strengthen its stable of world champs by the end of 2015 with 2 or 3 new additions and with 2016 not far around the corner its promising times for the scene.
British boxing is on the rise and is in brilliant health! Hopefully we are set to produce even more powerhouse’s from the pool of talent that this nation currently holds.
