Fours Kings vs The ‘not so’ Super-Bantamweight Division.

The best want to fight the best don’t they?

The ‘golden era of boxing’ when the likes of Haggler, Hearns, Leonard and Duran won and lost titles in fights between themselves with the fans watching on in awe has clearly long been forgotten by the powers that be in boxing today.

Rigondeaux, Quigg, Santa-Cruz and Frampton.

I love hearing opinions from casual fans as to who the best boxer in Britain really is as most of them can probably only name 3 or 4 active fighters anyway and I always get the same few names.

What I really want to know is what do the people who watch the smaller cards which don’t have the general public’s interest think?
