British boxing is undergoing a period of transition and uncertainty at present.
This transition has been brought on by multiple top level UK fighters drawing their careers to a close, while the uncertainty stems from those still active deciding to head to America in search of greater riches.
Recently, to name but a few, the likes of David Haye, Tony Bellew, James DeGale and George Groves have retired, leaving the ring for good.
