The best Brits in the world according to Ring Magazine

Best of the Brits starting 2021 on the top of the world

16 UK fighters are currently residing in The Ring Magazine’s top 10 world rankings, making up almost 10% of the entire list.

American heavyweight legend Jack Dempsey was the first ever fighter to be awarded with a Ring world title back in 1922.

Benny Lynch, widely regarded as Scotland’s greatest ever boxer, was the first Briton to be awarded a Ring belt (flyweight) in 1937, followed by four other Brits, meaning that single coveted championship was on these shores for 23 years.

83 years on from Benny’s crowning moment, and our tiny little island is still dominating the boxing world, as you can see below:
