Amir Khan: I’m hungry, ready for Brook, Thurman-Garcia winner

Two-division titleholder Amir Khan spoke to RingTV’s Dominic Verdin about his KO loss to Canelo Alvarez, a ring return in April, the desire to fight at least twice in 2017, and possibly facing British rival Kell Brook (who he ripped for seemingly wanting to avoid IBF mandatory challenger Errol Spence Jr.) or the Keith Thurman-Danny Garcia winner in second half of the year.

    I have to admire Khan in an odd way. He’s the stereotypical precocious talent that almost made it, but didn’t, right before the peak.
    He must know he’s got the worst chin going round, yet he still seems eager to challenge himself.
    If Khan had power and a decent chin….

    • Joey Junger

      Reminds me of Naseem Hamed, only without the horrible personality and the whole killing-someone-with-my-car and ballooning up to three-hundred pounds thing. Also, at least Khan keeps pressing on after losing, unlike Hamed, who was sent packing by the Baby-Face Assassin. But there’s a fine line between tough and stupid, and Khan has enough wits and winnings to probably quit while he’s ahead and get into management or something related to boxing, without taking anymore punches.

      • mark elding

        I wouldn’t place Khan on such a pedestal above Hamed.
        Khan himself mowed down a pedestrian on a crossing some years ago, whilst excessively speeding in his flash sports car. The man was left with appalling injuries, was unable to ever work again and later killed himself after years of subsequent depression.
        The Courts somehow acquitted Khan of dangerous driving, which lead to him declaring ‘I always said I was a careless driver, not a dangerous one’.
        Tell that to the family of the guy whose life he destroyed.

        • Mike Prado

          I’ve always admired Khan as a fighter and especially as a competitor. But that has got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard anyone say.

    • Barley mcgrew

      Such a good point. Ever-maligned as he is – Khan has always coveted fighting the very best around. Even knowing that chin of his leaves him vulnerable – as you so rightly say. Bet fans still find some reason to abuse him though.

      • Droeks Malan

        Well said.

      • wrecksracer

        He’s arguably better known for getting knocked out and trying to talk his way into big fights, rather than earning them. He has beaten some decent competition…Maidana, Alexander, Judah, and Algieri…but he talks like he deserves to be mentioned in the same sentence with Mayweather and Pacquiao. He really hasn’t done much at Welterweight to deserve a big fight.

        • Barley mcgrew

          Points taken. Both the hype and Amir’s oft-lofty opinion of his talents have never been truly realised. Yet in a world where fighters swerve and price themselves out of contests on a regular basis – this oh-so-brave fighter remains one of the toughest-matched fighters in modern boxing history.

          And THAT whilst knowing his chin left him vulnerable as hell.

          As a fighter he was thoroughly world-class whilst being critically flawed. Yet as a COMPETITOR he matches up to the bravest fighters who ever stepped through those ropes. And it’s that bravery and willingness to fight anyone I praise – far over and above the sum total of his talent and accomplishments.

          Would that more were like him.
          .
          .

          • wrecksracer

            Yeah, I watch all of his fights. His speed and occasional carelessness make him an entertaining fighter. More power to him if he can get a Thurman, Garcia, or Brook fight. It’s hard to favor him in those fights, but who knows? His best bet might be against Thurman.

          • Barley mcgrew

            Touche. If he has to fight again , and I sincerely wish he wouldn’t (that KO against large middleweight (oh yes) Canelo was nasty), then I would much rather thurman as opposed to a Garcia more powerful than the Floridian and a Brook stronger and technically superior to Keith.

            But I fear Khan’s is seriously risking his future health targeting the very top dogs at either 147 or (please no) 154 – including Thurman.

            I guess that’s his choice though. Kudos Wrecksracer.

            That punch canelo threw could have knocked down Buckingham Palace.

          • Barley mcgrew

            Lol. Sue would (A Scot knocking down Buckingham Palace . Many north of the border would applaud their countryman for that).

          • left hook

            Lol

          • philoe bedoe

            Always great entertainment……….

        • left hook

          How is that decent? U have some other fighters not close to Khan’s resume and some people take them as the second coming of Christ.

          • wrecksracer

            Maidana, Alexander, Judah, and Algieri? It’s a good (decent) resume. His signature win at Welterweight is Alexander (2 years ago). He has since beaten Algieri. Personally, I think he should have to fight an eliminator to get a title shot. Put him in against Porter.

          • left hook

            We are not arguing the time frame. It’s the quality of opponents khan has faced. All those guys u mentioned are champions or former champions. Is GGG Or betereiv resume better than Khan’s?

          • wrecksracer

            With four titles per weight class, it’s easy for a fighter to face “x-number” of champions/former champions. Khan can claim to be a Welterweight Champion now with his “Silver” title, right? If you want to believe Khan is great based on his resume, be my guest. His best wins are Maidana and Alexander. Good titlists. He’s not getting into the HOF with his “great” resume. It’s a decent resume, and I’ll grant you, better than a lot of fighters. I’m looking at his record now…..wow….Paulie Malignaggi, too. Which great fighter did Khan beat again? Either his resume is great or it’s good. Are you saying he has a great resume, or just better than some other fighters?

          • left hook

            Amazing how u just looked at his resume now. Khan’s resume is not decent but solid enough, not as great as Floyd, Ward, froch, Manny though but since u are checking his resume, u will see strong known names. U can say the same for GGG or Beteriev or Brook…yet u guys praise these guys.

          • wrecksracer

            You guys who? I haven’t praised GGG’s, Brook’s, or Beteriev’s record.

          • left hook

            I thought have seen u praising GGG and the rest, anyway I take it back if u didn’t. Atleast we agree khan s record is better than GGGs.
            I said his resume is solid not great as froch and the rest.
            Malinaggi, Judah, Alexandra are all multiple weight champs..that’s solid. If people can give Kovalev and Smith credit for beating 50yrs Hopkins…then no need to complain Berrara was old (after all he wasn’t 50 when khan fought him). Personally I didn’t think Berrara was past his Prime. Khan also beat the Ukrainian guy (forgot his name at the moment) and salita.

          • wrecksracer

            Decent=Good=Solid in my book. We’re really just disagreeing on a minor point here. The whole “multiple weight champ” doesn’t mean that much to me when you consider that a guy like Adrian Broner is a multiple weight champ, yet has lost every big fight he has been in. His name would look good on Khan’s resume if they fought, right? But he really hasn’t beaten anyone of note.

          • D. Gambino

            I would take a Broner/Khan fight! I think that would be interesting. Hell if Broner could put Porter down – he certainly could take Khan out. Conversely, I could see Khan easily out boxing Broner and stopping him late.

            Khan’s biggest problem has always been his ring intelligence (and late fight conditioning). Yes – he has a weak chin but if he fought more intelligently he wouldn’t have to worry about it since Khan’s technical/athletic skills are impressive.

            We’ve seen guys with weak chins go on to great things (e.g. W. Klitschko).

          • wrecksracer

            Yeah, I’d watch Khan/Broner. My guess is that Khan would win….but yeah, that chin. Khan’s speed and carelessness using it leaves huge holes in his defense. Could Broner exploit it? He doesn’t throw a ton of punches and wouldn’t have a size advantage. This would be a fun fight, and easy to put together (both Haymon affiliated). My guess is that Khan has bigger fish to fry (assuming he can get Garcia/Thurman/or Brooks).

          • left hook

            If u feel decent means solid then that’s your interpretation. To me decent means above average. Multiple champions is a big deal perhaps its not to u. And broner is a very good boxer, even maidana confirmed this. Ignore his obnoxious behaviour and look at the boxer. He lost to other 2 good fighters no shame in that..after all froch, Manny lost some fights too.

          • wrecksracer

            I think you over rate fighters with multiple titles. There are 4 plus titles in each weight class. A guy like Broner beat the weakest champion in every weight class he held a title in. His best wins are Paulie and Demarco. Solid wins against B Level guys. That’s it. Now look at Manny and Froch’s record. They actually have impressive wins against top talent. Nothing wrong with losing when you already have beaten top talent.

          • left hook

            All fighters dream is to become a world champion and doing it in multiple weights division is no easy task. Be a boxer and let’s see how easy it is to be champion in two weight class. U can say what u want about broner, am not a fan but I can’t deny his skills and achievements till date.

          • wrecksracer

            If there weren’t 4 titles per weight class, Broner would have been lucky to even win a title. 4 titles per weight class. Each has their own top 10 contenders. Maybe he can eke out a career like Zab Judah. Lost every big fight he ever had, but managed to make some money. Guys like you will celebrate his amazing record and think he’s a hall of famer.

          • left hook

            Give boxing a shot and let’s see if u can make it. Since u feel multiple weight champions is no big deal
            Explain how u are certain, broner wouldn’t have won a belt if there was only one belt? Are u God? Broner’s record is decent for ‘now’. U can’t find me celebrating his record, just like I won’t celebrate loma or GGG’s record. But u can’t deny the broner has skills and his one of the top guys in his division at the Mo, ignoring is bad behaviour.

          • wrecksracer

            Broner goes after the low hanging fruit and you call him a Champion? The only reason he has a belt now is that he went after the weakest “Champ” at his weight class. I don’t need to be God to see that. Even at Welterweight he went after Paulie, and that fight could have gone either way. You have to be the only person I have talked to that celebrates multiple champions at each weight class. Who is the real champ at Jr. Welterweight? They can’t all be the best. Why haven’t we heard Broner demand a fight with the real Champ? He knows Crawford would starch him. That’s your champion?

          • left hook

            Just shows u don’t know your boxing. Broner is not a champion at the moment. When he won the WBA Jr welterweight belt, it was vacant belt which the WBA chose the next rated fighter.. this is fact. Broner Crawford fight will be good but TV and promoters might not make it work out. Broners next fight is number 1 rated WBC fighter who knocked out imam. Again since u feel any fighter who was a champion in multiple divisions is overrated, then u try it out.

          • wrecksracer

            Oh, right, he was champion and missed weight (again). Some champ. And honestly, what good would it do for me to start boxing in my mid 50s? You are completely boring me with your defense of an absolutely over-rated contender. Under the current boxing landscape, the 4th best in any weight class can be called a “Champion”. It’s like some kind of joke, and “fans” like you eat it up. “Wow, look at his record….he beat Paulie Malinaggi!”

          • left hook

            U can box at 50 afterall Hopkins is in his 50s and let’s see how easy it easy to be world champion. If u think am boring then don’t reply or are u being forced too..it’s not my fault u don’t know broner is not currently a champion..shows u don’t no boxing neither have u had a boxing fight before.

          • wrecksracer

            Lol You are so full of crap, it’s coming out of your mouth. I was a State Champion in Wrestling in Michigan back in the day. How about you? Ever participated in a combat sport? Doubt it.

          • left hook

            Stop lying Mr, if u did u would know how hard it is to be a champion not to talk of two weight champion. Besides wrestling is not boxing and yes I used to box in south east area of London and I still sparr with guys in the gym every weekend.

          • wrecksracer

            Look at you…a neighborhood boxer! I’m not lying at all. I know what it’s like to cut weight, win championships on a State level, etc. You must be exaggerating Broner’s achievements because you never won anything. The guy is fighting his former sparring partner next.

          • left hook

            And what’s bad in a neighborhood boxer? U said u doubt I have participated in a combat sport and the answer is yes I have.
            If u have participated in a combat sport or boxing previously, u will know it’s not easy to be champion..that’s why I don’t believe u.
            Am not exaggerating broners achievements…these are simply facts, which you choose to ignore based on hate.
            Not a fan of broner but I give credit where is due.

          • wrecksracer

            As I said, he’s a good boxer, not a great one. He can win as many trinkets as he wants. It doesn’t prove greatness.

          • left hook

            U are confused. if you check our conversation, at no time did I say Broner or khan was great. Both with solid resume but not great. And both are skilful fighters.

          • wrecksracer

            And I think you are confused. At no point did I say Broner or Khan was bad. In fact, this whole discussion seems to be you trying to get the last word in.

          • left hook

            Last time I checked the debate was about khan and u moved it to broner. I didn’t say u said they were bad, but u tried to discredit both fighters resume and achievements. That’s your business if u think am trying to have the last word.

          • wrecksracer

            So, in closing, both fighters are good. Their titles in multiple weight classes don’t make them great. I’m glad we agree.

          • Mauro Hermida

            You forget Judah beating Spinks to become the man at 147. He won some big fights, wouldn’t have any belts if he didn’t. He was unlucky to run into a HOF badass like Kostya Tszyu. You also forget Broner was considered the best fighter at 135 at one point before moving up.

          • wrecksracer

            I didn’t forget that Judah beat Spinks on the second try, and then lost to the worst unified champion of all time Carlos Baldomir. Judah’s record, despite his losses, towers above Broner’s. And how could Broner be considered “the man” at 135 when he never unified? He had 2 fights at that weight class before he outgrew it.

    • Chuckss Joness

      Well said.

    • left hook

      Khan has a decent chin. It’s a shame that the guys that Knocked him out are heavy hitters. Maidana (one of the hardest punchers) cracked him and he didn’t go down. If he got knocked out by decent punchers, then I can agree on the glass chin story.

    Man Khan Fight Kell Brook first then maybe…

    • Robert Uy

      he should fight ronda rousey’s trainor. I heard he discovered new boxing technique

    • Chris

      He’s terrified of losing to Brook. Doesn’t care about losing to anyone else just Brook.

      Just can’t see him fighting him ever despite Hearn thinking its closer :-9

  • Chris Stans

    I keep forgetting khan is a welter…weird

    • Robert Uy

      Chris, I’ll give you a tip. To remember him, just think about the word LOSSER

  • Joey Junger

    Khan’s greatest asset is speed, his greatest weakness his chin (as we’ve all known since the Prescott fight). I think Thurman beats Garcia, but either way, I don’t think Khan beats the winner of that match. Thurman is too well-rounded as a boxer-puncher at this point and would decision Khan, while Garcia would probably knock him out. Khan is not well-past prime (a la Morales when Garcia got a hold of him), but I think his best fights are behind him. I can also think of a couple of guys who might be able to give either Garcia or Thurman a harder time than Khan can at this point, but boxing is a business, and Amir still has the name to bring the dollars, which will be the real determining factor.

    Not sure if anyone can be hustled at this point into watching him get KO’d on Pay-Per-View though, except for some sucker die-hards like me (I paid for Alvarez-Smith, after all).

    • Barley mcgrew

      I can’t see Thurman decisioning Khan – who is a better boxer and far faster to boot. Although I can envisage the hugely-overrated, long-overhyped Thurman quite possibly coming from behind to stop Amir at this point in the Sheffield fighter’s career.

      • Giuseppe

        I cannot envisage a fight where Thurman doesn’t catch Khan hard. Even if you consider him overhyped (he probably is a little, but that shows the desperation of the sport to find a star), he is too strong for Khan.

        • Barley mcgrew

          Probably now. I agree. But the prime Khan would have outboxed or even stopped Thurman for me.

      • Randall Bannister

        Amir is from Bolton – Kell is from Sheffield

        • Pietey Trenton

          Haha, youve just been blocked my friend, if theres one thing he hates more than ppl disagreeing with him, its ppl proving him wrong.

          • Randall Bannister

            Haha I hope not. I think Barley is big enough to know he made a simple mistake and I was just kindly pointing it out.

          • Robert Archambault

            I have had my share of exchanges with Barley over the years and we have disagreed and corrected each other a good number of times with no problems. The key is treating each other with respect and respecting each other’s point of view even if we disagree with it. Ignore the respect and start throwing insults around or if you are someone who obviously has an agenda or DKSAB then yes, you may well end up blocked by Barley and myself as well. I probably block more people than he does, actually. LOL

          • Pietey Trenton

            Whats DKSAB? And I was just trolling barley mate, I make no secret of the fact I think hes a total fu#k wit, and make no apologies for that opinion because he is, give me the next five fights for ggg if you jad it your way?

          • Robert Archambault

            Barley has forgotten more about the sport than you will ever know. As for the meaning of DKSAB… Don’t Know Shit About Boxing.
            Next five fights for GGG if I had it my way?
            Jacobs because it is already signed.
            BJS or whoever holds the remaining title after that.
            Two more fights at MW against I do not give a shit who so that he breaks the record. No real interest in a Canelo fight unless Canelo gets the title from BJS first. Do not believe Canelo deserves a shot at the undisputed, unified MW champion of the world.
            Move to SMW and take on his first opponent at that weight, whoever may be willing to get in the ring.
            After that, line up the 168 title holders one after another.

          • Pietey Trenton

            He certainly does have an extensive knowledge on the history of the sport, as far knowing more about boxing, it would depend on whether he has ever laced em up and stepped inside that ring, and if he has, how much time he spent there, there is champions of this sport who actually aren’t fight fans, and I assure you they know more about boxing tgan the lot of us put together

          • Robert Archambault

            To say that a sports enthusiast needs personal experience playing a sport to actually have in depth knowledge of the sport is naïve and totally incorrect. And that applies to boxing or ANY other sport in the world. There are boxing champions who know very little about the sport in fact, beyond their own careers.

          • Charlie U.

            How could you say that a boxing champion knows very little about the sport? What qualifications do you have to say they know very little? Just by virtue of the fact that they stepped in the ring (let alone that they became a champ) means they know quite a bit more about boxing than you or anyone else who simply watches and criticizes.

          • Pietey Trenton

            Seriously, can you fucking believe that comment?

          • Charlie U.

            No. Well, yeah. Nothing surprises me with that guy. He makes ridiculous comments all the time. But any other reasonable person saying something like that would surprise me.

          • Pietey Trenton

            Depends on what you mean by knoledge of the sport, if your talking history, stats and figures and facts, then yeah, I agree, and I think I said that. Mike tyson is like a boxing history encyclopedia, where as maidana and cotto admit openly that they are not really fight fans…. but if your gunna there behind your keyboard and state you more about boxing than two past champions, that have bled and suffered in that ring, dragged themselves off the canvas, Dug deep within themselves and fought on… well sir, I put it to you that your view is on the naive side, and perhaps a little self-aggrandizing. But hey, if you think remembering facts and figures, and spending hours watching others participate in a sport, means you have “in depth knowledge”… im sorry, the “deep” part of a sport, any sport, is finding out whats inside, those intangibles youve heard those commentators banging on about, and the hours spent learning your craft… watching tradesmen and knowing how to read a tape measure doesnt give you in depth knowledge on how to build a house. Kudos.

          • Robert Archambault

            But it’s fine for commentators who have never laced up a pair of gloves to have such knowledge? You are just a walking contradiction aren’t you?
            .
            By the way… I never claimed that ‘I’ knew more than champions do, but now that you mention it, I have had world champion boxers as friends and acquaintances over the years and to be perfectly honest, I did know both the history of the sport, and what was currently going on in the sport at the time in general, better than a couple of them.

          • Pietey Trenton

            No, in fact it really pisses me off when a larry merchant or max kellerman type sit there and disagree with the resident “colour” commentator that is usually a current fighter, eg roy jones or tim bradley, an example of this in the pacqiuao algeiri fight, roy states that chris will be trying to take pac into the later rounds and then knock him out, to which every expert on the panel vehemently disagrees with, then post fight interview with algieri reveals that his game plan was exactly as roy stated it would be… in anycase, like I previously stated, watching tradesmen and knowing how to read a tape measure doesn’t give you in depth knowledge on how to build a house,and if you really think you knew more about boxing than a couple of world champion “friends” of yours, than I have nothing more to say to you.

          • Charlie U.

            He’s talking just about what’s currently going on with the sport and facts about its history. For some reason, he equates that to knowledge of the sport itself and what it’s like to compete. As you said, no point in arguing with him. The guy is comic relief. Incidentally, I agree with you about the commentators. Larry Merchant used to do it all the time and he came across as stubborn and foolish. However, I don’t think the same about Max. He seems to strike a very good balance between offering his opinion but knowing when to defer to the expert sitting next to him (i.e. Roy Jones, Bernard Hopkins, or the late great Manny Steward).

          • Robert Archambault

            You have nothing more to say to me? DAMN! You could not have given me a more welcome present! I look forward to never reading a reply from you to one of my posts ever again.

        Poorly defensive? Thurman has great movement. Porter roughed him up on the inside. No way Khan in any time of his career beats Thurman. Porter I feel would stop Khan. Maidana would of stopped Khan if not for the ref. Khan is a very good boxer. Put him in with a guy with good counter punching and timing and it’s good nite nurse. JMO.

        • Barley mcgrew

          Sorry, but Keith Thurman is a defensively porous, moderate-hitting fighter at the highest level for me. Shawn Porter roughs everyone up inside – yet he inflicted far worse damage on Thurman’s features than he ever did on Brook.

          Ditto Collazo. Absolutely outclassed by Khan (and dropped 3 times by the moderate-hitting Bolton fighter) – yet a fighter who badly-marked up and managed to stun Thurman before being stopped in a less than impressive manner himself.

          Indeed, since stopping Diego Chavez nearly four years ago, Keith Thurman has been largely kept away from demanding, world-class opposition (note how the fringe-contender class Bundu outpointed by Thurman was later ruthlessly stopped by the fledgling Spence).

          Furthermore, he has just not lived up to his much-hyped tag as a puncher in the way his many fans in the media have hoped (Maidana was a more proven puncher at world level – by some way. And the young Khan came through against him).

          I think the Floridian is a nice, moderately-talented boxer-puncher who will defeat a lot of guys just off the highest level – yet he won’t defeat the very finest names (Brook, Crawford – if/when he moves up – and Spence are better fighters for me).

          The only way you defeat a prime Amir Khan is to posses serious one-shot hitting power (Garcia did at 140 – and the undefeated, larger hard-hitting Prescott defeated a very young, inexperienced Khan). You catch a careless Khan with one big shot then watch him unravel.

          Keith Thurman doesn’t possess that sort of power at the highest level . The Floridian is more a boxer-puncher who outboxes then wears the opposition down – and he simply wouldn’t catch the prime Khan often enough and hard enough to do that.

          Just my opinion though. And I’d probably take Thurman to win now as said.

  • IanF69

    If you look at the top ten ranked WW’s….Khan loses to them all.
    No chin and stays in the pocket too long and inevitably gets caught…….he just can’t stay out of reach for 12 rounds.

  • Robert Uy

    Amir Khan has been hungry for 20 years. He should just eat!!!
    He is a disappointment, he runs his mouth while choking in big fights
    EAT dude, EAT

  • Chris Noble

    There is nothing to hate about what he said there apart from slating Kell for going for the money fight, when he himself embarrassingly chased floyd for years.
    Did anyone else think he sounded a bit punchy?

    • Sugar Ray Simple

      The guy is a moron. So much talent over killed but his forever involved family. This isn’t racist in anyway but if he wasn’t from Pakistani origin I think he would have been a hall of fame. Still time I suppose

      • Turner Wednesday

        Can you elaborate further on your comment regarding his Pakistani origin? I’m genuinely curious of your rationale around this.

        • Sugar Ray Simple

          Have you seen his dad? He thinks he owns him. Too much family involvement. never good for any human being

          • Turner Wednesday

            That may or may not be true (because the truth is none of us know for sure what his family involvement level is or how that plays a role in his career), but I’d like to know how being Pakistani is related to, or even pertinent to your argument? I’d love to hear more.

      • BillyC

        Khan is not a hall of famer, Pakistani or otherwise.

    • Robert Archambault

      He has no right to complain about Brook going for a money fight when he quite obviously did the same when he fought Canelo. If he actually thought he had a chance to win that fight, he is beyond delusional and borderline insane. It was a money fight, pure and simple.

      • Chris Noble

        True story, the rest of the interview was fine by me though, surprisingly.

  • left hook

    Not every talented fighter is an ATG. Many just have good careers. Khan has had a good career–titles, big wins. I don’t think he should be derided for not being unbeaten or for not having a chin of granite. Some things just are not meant to be. With that said, he could beat many of the top welters. Or he could go down in flames. Either way, I find his fights suspenseful, as you know at any moment his chin can undo all the good he has done.

    • william ellis

      Agreed: he’s a glass cannon – terrific, except for the weak chin – willing to fight the best and has sometimes beaten the best. All of his losses, except to Prescott, were to elite fighters who have won titles.

      • philoe bedoe

        Spot on…….

    • philoe bedoe

      I agree……..

    • JGC

      His ridiculous hand speed gives him an almost unfair advantage, but it’s offset by his frail whiskers. I enjoy his fights and think he has a good chance to upset Thurman, Garcia, or Brooks

  • Colnef

    Khan a knockout waiting to happen against all 3 guys mentioned. He needs to box the perfect fight but it seems that you just know sometime in the fight he will get caught. Have respect for Khan but he is nowhere as great as he makes out.

  • Blair Nicol

    Does he ever shut up?

  • TBE KOREA-DA REAL ARTHUR LEE

    Brain damaged. feel sorry for him

  • terryhealy

    khan will beat brook in my opion he may have a glass chin, but he has faced better opponents.

  • stetee83

    Funny how Brook is now a viable opponent after Khan was put to sleep by Alvarez. Lightning speed, great skills but no chin and he’s feather-fisted. He won’t be able to avoid Brook for 12 rounds. Kell will catch him and that will be all she wrote. Plus I like a fighter who wants to avenge a defeat, to put it right. Khan never seemed interested. He knew that Prescott/Garcia etc could hurt him so he stayed clear. Lacks heart IMO
