The Yorkshire Football Forums
Hello and welcome to THE PRIDE OF YORKSHIRE.

This forum was set up on the 5th of September 2009 in order to give Yorkshire football fans a place to come and interact with fellow fans of all 10 league clubs in our county.

We operate a controlled environment, with each team having their own forum and moderator, to ensure everyone has equal rights. The main reason this forum was set up, was to allow its members the freedom to express themselves without the restraints some other 'multi-club' forums adopt.

However, abuse of other members will not be tolerated. Please keep discussions civil. If you are not prepared to behave appropiately, please don't register. Friendly banter between rival clubs is encouraged, personal abuse towards other members will result in a permanent ban.

Some sections of this forum are restricted to members, so to enjoy the full benefits of the site please register. Registered users also enjoy this website without the advertisements at the top of the page.

THANK YOU for visiting THE PRIDE OF YORKSHIRE and we hope to see you posting here in the future.

British Boxing Pound For Pound Top Ten

Post by NIGHTMARE on Fri 6 Sep - 5:15:35

Ignoring weight, this subjective list takes into account fighters' recent results, their skills, resilience and punching power.
The list will be updated periodically and should be treated as a talking point. Let the debate begin.

1. Carl Froch - Super-middleweight

Nottingham (31-2, 22KOs)
Froch beat Mikkel Kessler in a classic rematch in London and is now chasing a return with American kingpin Andre Ward - although compatriot George Groves could be first.

2. David Haye - Heavyweight

London (26-2, 24KOs)
Haye faces Manchester's Tyson Fury in September, which could pave the way for another world title shot against either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko. Haye is widely expected to prevail.

3. Ricky Burns - Lightweight

Coatbridge (36-2, 11KOs)
Burns made Jose Gonzalez quit in the third defence of his WBO title but it was a rocky ride while it lasted. The Coatbridge man fights Mexican Raymundo Beltran in September.

4. Kell Brook - Welterweight

Sheffield (30-0, 20KOs)
After an intensely frustrating nine months Brook was impressive in beating Carson Jones in a rematch. Brook faces Ricky Hatton's conqueror Vyacheslav Senchenko in October.

5. Amir Khan - Light-welterweight

Bolton (28-3, 19KOs)
Khan very nearly came a cropper against former world champion Julio Diaz but rode out the storm to stay on target for a world title shot later this year.

6. Carl Frampton - Super-bantamweight


Belfast (16-0, 11KOs)
Frampton continued his rise through the super-bantamweight ranks with an impressive win over European champion Kiko Martinez and can't be far off a world title shot.

7. Scott Quigg - Super-bantamweight


Bury (25-0-1, 17KOs)
Quigg made former world title challenger Rendall Munroe look old last December and gets a shot at the vacant WBA crown against Yoandris Salinas in September.

8. Martin Murray - Middleweight

St Helens (25-1-1, 11 KOs)
Murray gave a game display in challenging for Sergio Martinez's WBC crown in in Buenos Aires and will no doubt earn another world title shot either this year or next.

9. Nathan Cleverly - Light-heavyweight

Cefn Fforest (26-1, 12KOs)
The Welshman came unstuck against Russia's Sergey Kovalev, putting paid to dreams of a unification match against the legendary Bernard Hopkins. Rebuilding could be painful.

10. Tony Bellew - Light-heavyweight

Liverpool (20-1-1, 12KOs)
Bellew overcame the awkward Malian Isaac Chilemba in their rematch in May and should now fight either WBC title-holder Adonis Stevenson or Tavoris Cloud.

Could easily see Anwar becoming the top Light-welter weight in a few years...
