Blockbuster British boxing in 2017: Close to 40 world title fights lined up

British boxing

British boxing is all set to break records in 2017, close to 40 world title fights will see British boxers in one corner.

At present, there are 13 men with a British license to contend for the world title. But the world is oblivious to most of the fighters.

The heavyweight division in Britain will cash in over £200 million ($248 million) this year if Tyson Fury makes a comeback. Fury defeated boxing world legend and then world champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

The combined earnings from upcoming fights- Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye vs. Tony Bellew will create huge sums of money. Hughie Fury is likely to fight Joseph Parker for the WBO title which will add up to the total as well.

James DeGale, the WBC champion at super middleweight is ready to clash on with IBF-title-holder Badou Jack again. Jack was punched out cold in New York on Jan. 2014. DeGale also has Callum Smith and George Groves waiting in line for a back in Britain.

Brits on world conquest again?

Amir Khan and Kell Brook fight is hopefully just at the moment. Khan eagerly wants a warm-up fight, and Brook might also fancy one more IBF welterweight defense before the packed stadium in the Khan showdown.

Furthermore, at featherweight, a British division inhabited by the thinnest-skinned toughest fighters on the planet, is more likely to engage in some great action.

Carl Frampton defends his WBA title against Leo Santa Cruz in Las Vegas in last week this month.Also, Lee Selby is scheduled to defend his IBF title in the same canvas. Meanwhile, Scott Quigg, his jaw fixed, has followed Carl Frampton to featherweight and, in Leeds, Josh Warrington is ready to rumble.

At bantamweight category, the two British world champions Lee Haskins and Jamie McDonnell have to encounter. After fighting with lesser known names like Vargas, Solis or Morales these two hot shots got to fight each other for good.

Here are some highlights from one of the most feared men in the boxing world:
