The British Are Coming!

The British Are Coming!
Was the boxing talent pool in Jolly Old England this deep in Henry Cooper's day?

Is British boxing going through a renaissance, or has the Internet simply made the world a smaller place for fight fans?

Is British boxing going through a renaissance, or has the Internet simply made the world a smaller place for fight fans?

That’s a question we posed on Sunday’s Ringside Boxing Show to The Ring Magazine’s Anson Wainwright, born and reared in the UK, where he finds himself covering Amir Khan, Kell Brook, Carl Frampton, the Fury cousins, Scott Quigg, Anthony Joshua, Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale, Chris Eubank Jr., and, whether you realize it or not, a whole bunch of other top-drawer fighters.

Was the talent pool in Jolly Old England this deep in ‘Enry Cooper’s day?

During a wide-ranging, 30-minute interview, Wainwright handicaps Tyson Fury’s chances of pulling the upset over Wladimir Klitschko, speculates whether Khan and Brook would sell every seat at Wembley Stadium, considers who would have prevailed in a fight between Calzaghe and Froch (both in the ring, and in a dark alley after a few pints), and much more.

Prepare for an insightful education from a deep-thinking international boxing writer.

Our interview with Anson Wainwright is preceded by a check on current events by two of our expert analysts. John J. Raspanti and Rizwaan Zahid, who, among other topics, try to explain why old fighters (Mosley, Mayorga, Tarver, Freitas, Briggs, Jones, Ruddock ... will Jake LaMotta be next?) just keep hanging on.

    The Brits, like the Japanese, have arrived and they are scary
