Khan has a larger hate base then a fanbase. Who have been desperate to see get him beat up by a rival British fighter for most of his career.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 is gonna make sure they pay for the privilege. If it does happen it would be more fun. If Frank Warren was the lead promoter and Eddie Hearn got frozen out.
I can certainly see this being a joint promotion with Khan Promotions and Frank Warren promotions.
