BBC updated lb for lb (21st october)


Recommended Posts

1. David Haye


- Heavyweight

London (22-1, 21KOs)

A fight against Wladimir Klitschko having fallen through, Haye will now fight Russian WBA champion Nikolay Valuev in November. He'll be favourite to win it, but it will be a big ask.


British and Commonwealth super middleweight champion Carl Froch


2. Carl Froch


- Super-middleweight

Nottingham (26-0, 20KOs)

Froch's debut in the Super Six tournament may have left both himself and fans frustrated, but a win is a win. However, he will have to be greatly improved if he is to beat Mikkel Kessler.


WBA welterweight champion Ricky Hatton


3. Ricky Hatton


- Light-welterweight

Manchester (45-2, 32KOs)

Hatton was knocked out in two rounds by pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas and his extraordinary career may now be over.



4. Amir Khan


- Lightweight

Bolton (21-1, 15KOs)

Khan claimed the WBA light-welterweight title with a classy victory over Andreas Kotelnik to silence the doubters. His first defence will be against Dmitriy Salita on 5 December.


British, European and Commonwealth light welterweight champion Junior Witter


5. Junior Witter


- Light-welterweight

Bradford (37-3-2, 22KOs)

Witter's hopes of fighting Amir Khan went up in smoke when he lost to Devon Alexander in trying to reclaim the WBC light-welterweight belt. Difficult to see what options he has left.


6. Kell Brook


- Welterweight

Sheffield (20-0, 13KOs)

Originally a product of the same Sheffield gym as Naseem Hamed, Brook has been tipped for world honours. Defends his title against Michael Jennings on 30 October.


British lightweight champion John Murray


7. John Murray


- Lightweight

Manchester (28-0, 16KOs)

Was stripped of his British title after coming in too heavy against Scott Lawton, but won it back with a fourth-round stoppage of Jon Thaxton in October. Will now be scenting bigger prizes.


8. Jamie Moore


- Light-middleweight

Salford (32-3, 23KOs)

Moore gave an impressive display in stopping Ukrainian Roman Dzuman to defend his European title. Faces Ryan Rhodes next in October.


9. Kevin Mitchell


- Super-featherweight

Dagenham (28-0, 21KOs)

The British champion's world title hopes have been frustrated by injuries, to both himself and potential opponents, but defends his title against Scotland's Ricky Burns in December.


10. Nathan Cleverly


- Light-heavyweight

Cefn Forest (18-0, 8KOs)

Cleverly, 22, already owns the British and Commonwealth titles, and following his defeat of Courtney Fry, his fifth straight within the distance, will have his eye on European honours.

totally agree


How does Haye goto No.1 without fighting. I'm saying that as his biggest fan.

Totally agree with Rob,i love Haye but surely Froch has to be no 1 at the moment.

As for Witter been in there i dont agree and i think Ryan Rhodes might have something to say now about not been in the top 10.
