I'm not a patriotic Brit, and I'm not keen on the type of fighters we produce ( they seem to think speed and power wins fights, skills are seemingly ignored). But I feel the need to stand up for this ego-inflated nation when I see morons like you write junk like that. I agree that both Froch and Haye (who I cannot stand) will lose. Haye will retire (and good riddance), but Froch will continue to be very relevant on the top-level scene and may well win another title. Ricky Burns is a young, improving fighter who is already arguably the best super-featherweight in the world. Khan will lose more fights but will also win some big ones and will probably end up being rated pound-for-pound. Cleverly is very much relevant on the 175lb scene and will continue to improve. Degale and Groves will be in title fights even if they don't win them. All in all this isn't bad for a fairly average boxing era in a country 1/40th the size of the US.

Oh and Nonito Donaire is Filipino, born to 2 Filipino parent in the Philippines where he lived until 12 years of age, regardless of whether he has an American accent and passport.
