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. Carl Froch - Super-middleweight

Nottingham (33-2, 24KOs)

Froch proved the doubters wrong with a devastating knockout of George Groves in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley. Probably has one fight left in him and he'd like it to be in Las Vegas.

2. Kell Brook - Welterweight

Sheffield (33-0, 22KOs)

Brook fought superbly to wrest the IBF title from American Shawn Porter in California. Brook has plenty of options in a talent-rich division but British fans will want him to fight Amir Khan.

3. Amir Khan - Light-welterweight

Bolton (29-3, 19KOs)

Khan gave one of the best performances of his career in easily outpointing Luis Collazo in Las Vegas. Will probably fight again in November before pursuing a fight with Floyd Mayweather next May.

4. Carl Frampton - Super-bantamweight

Belfast (18-0, 13KOs)

The Northern Irishman has landed a rematch with Kiko Martinez in Belfast in September, having already beaten him last year. But this time the fight will be for his Spanish rival's IBF belt.

5. George Groves - Super-middleweight

London (19-2, 15KOs)

Groves gave another fine performance against Carl Froch at Wembley Stadium, up until the point he was knocked cold in the eighth round. Is still only 26 and a world title will surely come.

6. Scott Quigg - Super-bantamweight

Bury (28-0-2, 21KOs)

Quigg defends his version of the WBA title against Paulus Ambunda in November. He and Frampton are tired of talking about fighting each other, but it might happen one day.

7. Jamie McDonnell - Bantamweight

Doncaster (24-2-1, 11KOs)

McDonnell beat Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat at Wembley to claim a portion of the WBA bantamweight title. It was just reward, McDonnell having won and been stripped of the IBF title in 2013.

8. Martin Murray - Middleweight

St Helens (26-1-1, 11KOs)

Murray dominated from start to finish as he outpointed Max Bursak in June to move closer to a third world title shot. Fights Mexico's Domenico Spada in Monaco in October.

9. Paul Butler - Bantamweight

Ellesmere Port (16-0, 8KOs)

Butler beat Stuey Hall to claim the IBF title and a match with another fellow Brit, WBA title-holder Jamie McDonnell, would make sense. Butler, however, might drop back down to super-flyweight.

10. James DeGale - Super-middleweight

London (19-1, 13KOs)

DeGale impressed in blasting out previously unbeaten American Brandon Gonzales in May, should fight for a world title before the year is out and could be on a collision course with Carl Froch.
