BBC pound-for-pound British rankings

After much deliberation, staff at the BBC Sport website have come up with their top 10 British fighters, pound-for-pound.

Ignoring weight, this subjective list takes into account fighters' recent results, their skills, resilience and punching power.

The list will be updated periodically and should be treated as a talking point.

1. Kell Brook - Welterweight

Sheffield (35-0, 24KOs)

Brook made short work of Birmingham's Frankie Gavin and British fans would like him to fight Amir Khan next. However, Khan doesn't seem interested and they might have to wait until next year.

2. Carl Frampton - Super-bantamweight

Belfast (21-0, 14KOs)

Despite being floored twice in the first round by Alejandro Gonzalez Jr, Frampton still believes he is the boss when it comes to negotiating a fight with Scott Quigg. Who knows when it might happen.

3. Amir Khan - Light-welterweight

Bolton (31-3, 19KOs)

Khan was given plenty of problems by Chris Algieri but was never in real trouble. Wants to fight Floyd Mayweather or Philippine legend Manny Pacquiao in 2015, rather than British rival Kell Brook.

4. James DeGale - Super-middleweight

London (21-1, 14KOs)

DeGale outpointed Andre Dirrell to claim the vacant IBF title in May and he remains on course for a rematch with bitter rival George Groves. That fight could take place in a stadium next summer.

5. Scott Quigg - Super-bantamweight

Bury (31-0-2, 23KOs)

Quigg took Kiko Martinez out in two rounds, providing a form guide against Carl Frampton, whom the tough Spaniard took the distance twice. A domestic match-up makes sense but seems a long way off.

6. Jamie McDonnell - Bantamweight

Doncaster (26-2-1, 12KOs)

McDonnell recovered from a third-round knockdown to beat Japan's previously unbeaten Tomoki Kameda and reclaim a portion of the WBA title. British fans would like to see him fight Lee Haskins.

7. Lee Selby - Featherweight

Barry (21-1, 8KOs)

Selby became Wales' third featherweight world champion with a classy defeat of the previously unbeaten Evgeny Gradvoch. If the late, great Howard Winstone was watching, he would have been proud.

8. George Groves - Super-middleweight

London (21-2, 16KOs)

Groves was expected to challenge Sweden's Badou Jack for the WBC title this summer before the fight fell through, although they could meet on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's final fight in September.

9. Martin Murray - Middleweight

St Helens (29-2-1, 12KOs)

Murray was incredibly game in losing to WBA champion Gennady Golovkin in Monaco, becoming the first man to take the Kazakh knockout artist past round 10. A fourth world title tilt should follow.

10. Lee Haskins - Bantamweight

Bristol (32-3, 14KOs)

Haskins came through a classic ding-dong against Ryosuke Iwasa to set up a potential clash with IBF title-holder Randy Caballero. Another option would be a rematch against domestic rival Jamie McDonnell.
