Default Who is the Greatest Fighter out the UK Ever?

Greatest fighter from the UK ever?

I would say Bob Fitzsimmons followed by Jimmy McLarnin.

There's some controversy surrounding them but they were both born in the UK.

Just to warn you, they are "old school fighters"

There isn't too much film of either of them and it's quite grainy the footage that does exist.

Fitzsimmons in particular doesn't look great to me, on film. In comparison to his resume which is amazing. He hit incredibly hard though, apparently.

In my time it's gotta be Lennox.

Ken Buchanan, Ted Lewis, Sir Henry Cooper is a shout too I suppose.
