He has been a part-time celebrity fighter for a while, now. Doing the celebrity jungle at that point was an indicator. It has been a while since I would have made him favourite in any sort of competitive fight. The Brook fight was worth more money a little while back than it would be now, so it seems that even money wasn't going to make him want that one too much. I wish he had retired a good few years ago, personally.

He's a good bloke, Amir. And he has fought every fucker who would face him.

He can do whatever he wants, and is beyond criticism for it, in my mind.

Yes when I said that I wished he had retired some years ago it was because we really used to be behind him and excited for his fights. Then latterly I just found it a bit cringy when he came out with all the same rhetoric and called things lucky punches when it was clear that he just wasn't what he was. Late Amir was a bit slow to give others credit, be they opponents who had dropped him or rivals. I'd have a much more straightforward, pro-Khan view had he stopped a little while back. I realise that that matters not a jot, and nor should it, but he's like Napoleon - means different things and will be popular/unpopular with different people depending on the phase of his career one considers.

Oh yeah, defo. He's come out with some utter nonsense over the years, but I give him a pass because it's probably down to IQ.

I fear Hearn would make this PPV even if it happened now, he's gone PPV crazy. Whyte-Povetkin would have been nowhere near PPV a few years ago. I'd rather this didn't happen as if Khan got a payday from it now it would vindicate his position that he was right to wait as the public are desperate to see it so it didn't have a particular shelf life.

Khan vs Brook will still do very well on ppv sadly if its made. People would get sucked in by the media
It actually would, both shot to shit though, they should retire or only fight bums or low level contenders now, they're good enough and aggressive enough to do damage on each so I hope it doesn't happen

It'll still do 200k+ buys I reckon
