Currently plying their trade in Britain with a domestic promoter who would you pick to keep you going for the next 5 years?

Bearing in mind your job here is to maximise your earning potential as well as deliver big fights.

I'm hoping this will conjure up some good natured debate although I do expect some Hearn bashing/stroking.

Xiamen, China
FRAMPTON (REALLY rate him)
Quigg
Gavin (finally convincing me that his head is in the right place, we all know his talent)
BJS
Cleverly (should be getting some bigger-money fights soon, fingers crossed)
DeGale
Groves
Yafai
Tyson Fury (not particularly high on him, but he'll be in some MASSIVE fights with HUGE purses if he continues doing what he's doing)
McDonnell (needless to say if he got more TV exposure, he'd be more recognised)

Didn't think of Selby, haha
Didn't put Froch down as he won't be around for 5 more years, same as Haye
Should have put Campbell, but we cannot be sure that he will be a great pro, but I suppose that's what promoting is all about, taking a risk with a talented kid

Campbell, regardless of where he will end up with his career, is promotional gold for the first two years imo and I put froch because he's my favourite fighter of all time :lol: but I think the ampunt of money generated at this stage of his career is enough to make sense for me, even if it's only for two years

Yeah, fair enough, I'm not shrewd enough to be a promoter really!

Haye
Froch
Cleverly
Brook
Frampton
Price
Burns
Groves
Campbell

Leave one space empty for when I inevitably sign Anthony Joshua because in a year Price, Groves, Campbell and Frampton have secured world titles on home soil and Brook has had his Jeff Lacy moment against Floyd Mayweather at Wembley.

My list would be very similar, maybe Price instead of Chisora as long as he's carefully matched.

Not much love for Burns up to now.
Probably because he looked poor against González (has SOME excuse, with the chaotic build-up though), got a fight lined up against Beltran, and talk of Crolla, neither of which are going to boost his profile massively, and then of course Boner ain't gonna come back, that was Burns' money fight, not Ricky's fault, though it is an open division atm
