Not really worthy of a thread as it's obvious as to who the best British fighter is at the moment. I'm adamant you've made a couple of threads like this before too and one recently...

Would've been better if the thread was about who could potentially be the best British fighter at some point.

Once again freedom makes a poll and the only person to oppose the obvious is himself.

If that's not a sign of a poor poster I don't know what is.

Your agenda is transparent, your hate for Froch is transparent.

There is no logical reason for picking Burns over Froch, there is no logical reason for you picking Bute to beat Froch in a rematch.

Several like Cleverly, Price and Kell Brook need to step up their level of competition.
David Price, at present, is ridiculously overrated. I like the guy, but he hasn't fought anyone of note - questions re. his chin, too.

Cleverly is overrated. Probably one of the weakest title holders at present.


In reply to your question: Froch, without doubt. There's no way Burns ranks higher than Froch.

I do have a logical reason.

My logical reason is: I'll be amused when I read the VERY SERIOUS reaction I get from people like you. Isn't it logical to enjoy a good laugh once in a while?

I don't hate Froch, although I do think he's being a bit overrated right now.

You used to love Carl Froch until he took a dump on your fellow countryman Lucian Bute.

Easily Froch then Burns.

Is Haye an active boxer? Personally I dont think Haye should be in any rankings, I also dont think Mayweather should be part of any rankings.

Rankings should be for boxer who are active and fighting regularly, not once a year or once every 2 years.
