This week’s panellists have been requested to select their favorite win by a British boxer in America
Gary Logan (Coach)
Lloyd Honeyghan retiring Don Curry on September 27, 1986. Lloyd, the undefeated British and European champ, is available in as obligatory for Curry’s undisputed world belts and shakes up each Curry and the bookies (Lloyd was a 6-1 underdog). He skilfully dismantles and pummels boxing’s anointed “pound for pound” king and shocks the boxing world. No abroad Brit win comes shut.
Chris Billam-Smith (European cruiserweight champion)
Kell Brook vs. Shawn Porter for me. I bear in mind staying as much as watch it and, realizing how robust Shawn Porter was on the time as an undefeated reigning world champion, I knew it might take a disciplined efficiency to win the belt from the champion. I all the time liked watching Kell battle.
Ryan Walsh (Former British featherweight champion)
Naseem Hamed vs. Kevin Kelley in my time. The pre-fight build-up was nice and the battle itself was an absolute basic; a knockdown-fest with a KO end on the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Sq. Backyard. Particular mentions to Lloyd Honeyghan knocking out Donald Curry and Lennox Lewis knocking out Mike Tyson. Each have been definitely iconic. However, as a former member of the Naz fan membership, I’m biased.
Joe Gallagher (Coach)
I bear in mind watching Alan Minter vs. Vito Antuofermo after I was a child, which was a really stable win. Donald Curry is one in all my favorite fighters, so I used to be gutted to see Lloyd Honeyghan beat him, however what a unbelievable efficiency that was as nicely. Carl Froch vs. Jermain Taylor was one other nice battle involving a Brit in America, as was Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana and Nigel Benn vs. Iran Barkley, which might be my favorite of the lot.
