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 (32-2, 23KOs)
Froch finally agreed to a rematch with George Groves after much pressure from the public, media and Groves himself. It promises to be the biggest fight in British history.
2. Kell Brook - Welterweight
Sheffield (31-0, 21KOs)
Brook was impressive in demolishing Ricky Hatton's conqueror Vyacheslav Senchenko and should finally get a world title shot after his next fight in Liverpool in March.
3. Ricky Burns - Lightweight
Coatbridge (37-2, 11KOs)
Burns was fortunate to earn a decision against Raymundo Beltran, although he did have his jaw broken in the second round. Unbeaten American Terence Crawford is next in February.
4. George Groves - Super-middleweight
London (19-1, 15KOs)
Groves was magnificent in defeat against Carl Froch and will get another chance to dethrone his arch rival in May. On this occasion, nobody will be calling the fight a mismatch.
5. Amir Khan - Light-welterweight
Bolton (28-3, 19KOs)
Khan declined to fight last December in the belief he would land a dream fight against Floyd Mayweather in May. Now it looks like Mayweather wants to fight Marcos Maidana instead.
6. Carl Frampton - Super-bantamweight
Belfast (17-0, 12KOs)
Frampton continued his rise through the super-bantamweight ranks with an impressive win over Frenchman Jeremy Parodi and has a final world title eliminator penned in for April.
7. Martin Murray - Middleweight
St Helens (25-1-1, 11KOs)
Murray gave a game display in challenging for Sergio Martinez's WBC crown in Buenos Aires but looked rusty on his return in December. Lack of motivation might have been a factor.
8. Scott Quigg - Super-bantamweight
Bury (27-0-2, 20KOs)
Quigg made up for his underwhelming draw with Cuban Yoandris Salinas with a fine knockout of Diego Silva last November. A fight against Carl Frampton is what fans want to see.
9. Jamie McDonnell - Bantamweight
Doncaster (22-2-1, 10KOs)
Having beaten previously undefeated Mexican Julio Ceja to win the IBF crown, McDonnell was subsequently stripped. Stopped Bernard Inom in his comeback fight to get back on track.
10. Tyson Fury - Heavyweight
Manchester (22-0, 16KOs)
After a frustrating 2013, which saw a dream fight against David Haye fall through, Fury returned to the ring with an unsurprisingly ragged knockout victory over Joey Abell in February.
