Should boxing have annual uk vs USA tournament?
I think this would be great for the sport and this idea should be shown to WBC and all big boxing organisations. The tournament would be something similar to the Ryder cup in golf where USA faces Europe every year with a team of 11 or so best players from USA and Europe, in boxings case it would be best fighter from each weight class from USA and uk face each other, this would be soooo successful, the super 6 tournament was great and boxing needs more tournaments like that and things like Mexico vs Argentina vs Cuba etc. if this USA vs uk tournament ever happens it should last a total of either one mega night of 11 super fights which would easily do over 6 million ppvs or they could make It last about a month or so with few fights every week, if it happens it should look like this ( predictions included) : Heavyweight: David haye ( uk) vs wilder ( USA) - haye wins via 3rd round ko Cruiser weight: (no good fighters at weight) Light heavy: cleverly(uk) vs Dawson (us) - cleverly by ud Super middleweight: froch(uk) vs ward (us) - ward by ud. Middleweight: Peter quillin (US) v Martin Murray - quillin by tko Welterweight: money may (us) vs kell brook (uk) - floyd by easy ud Lightweight: Garcia (us) vs khan (uk) - khan by ud And Cba to do lower weight classes but you get the point.

With the big number of established and fast up and coming fighters from both the UK and the USA, I think that would be a great idea to break the monotony of Mexico vs. USA, Mexico vs. Puerto Rico and Mexico vs. Asia themes dominating fight cards in the USA.
In the heavies, UK has Tyson Fury, David Haye, Dereck Chisora
In the cruserweights, UK has Ola Afolabi
In the light heavyweights, UK has Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew
In the super middleweights, UK has Carl Froch, George Groves and James DeGale
In the middleweights, UK has the likes of Martin McMurray, Darren Barker and Matt Macklin
In the welterweights, UK has Kell Brooks and Frankie Gavin
In the junior welterweights, Uk has Amir Khan and Ajose Olasegun
In the lightweights, UK has Ricky Burns
In the junior featherweights, UK has Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton.
These fighters could be paired against any American champions or rated contenders.

I do not even believe this question is relevent .... And hardly shrewd! It is dangerous enough retaining someone on our part correct now and you might be dreaming about war between two presently powerful allies. Britain is an extraordinarily small country in actual phrases and we might so effectively be over-run ... Lets maintains the united states on our side for goodness sake ...

Getting the UK & US to agree on rules would be a big sticking point.

Sounds like a good idea but likely won't happen.
