Can our European friends clue as in on which fighters are on the way up? Name, weight division and current and former titles held would also be a good addition to the list so we can get a good luck at these fellas.

Thanks in advance! :)

David Barnes is the one to watch from England people think he will go all the way to the top.

He is in the Welterweight division current British title holder. Looks good against better opponents. Best win so far was against James Hare who is a decent fighter try and watch the fight. Occasionally he will win fights without trying that hard like his last fight against Juho Tolppola just settling*for points wins. Thats the reason he hasn't got more ko wins, he's got more power than his record suggests.

I can say of some Polish prospects:
Tomasz Adamek (Light Heavy) is fighting Paul Briggs for WBC title, 16th April.
Krzysztof 'Diablo' Wlodarczyk (29-1)is the WBF Cruiser champ.
Maciej Zegan (33-1) is the WBF Light Champ.
Albert Sosnowski (Heavy) has some decent record (35-1) and is going up in rankings.
Dawid 'Cygan' Kostecki (17-0) is the WBC LHW youth champ, 15th in senior rank and going up soon...

Diablo Wlodarczyk is now 2nd in WBC LHW rank.

Albert Sosnowski is fighting tomorrow in Vegas. His opponent is Travis Fulton (11-8), an MMA fighter... :)

Welterweight Gary Young from Edinburgh could be one to watch. He has a 12-0 record is trained by Peter Harrison and managed by Frank Maloney. He now needs to be stepped up in class to see what he can handle.
