Does it mean british boxing is coming to an end? hell no! we may not produce the best fighters but boxing will never die over here just because we dont produce as many boxing sensations as america doesnt mean british boxing is dead.
Boxing is quite popular. There are 50,000 female boxers alone and boxing is officially the fastest growing sport in the UK. It's also practised in over 2000 secondary schools.

"There is going to be a big jump from other combat sports into boxing and it is already the fastest-growing sport in England.
"Numbers-wise it has increased by about 700% in five or six years.
"Like any sport you have a drop-off but now they will have the opportunity to go on and become superstars."
