Brooks coming off a win against porter was a legit no.3 at 147, if khan had put on a performance and outclassed him (entirely possible) khan would have entered pound4pound top 10 based off his back to back wins at 147. As crazy as it sounds if khan had fought garcia or even peterson in 2015 and trained his arse off and won, his standing among fans in general would have shot through the roof, if there was ever a fight out there khan should have chased it was both those rematches. If khan fought both of them and won, no one would really care about the whole thing with brook,
I thought the Peterson fight was unfortunate and the beginning of the end for Khan. It was a controversial fight, Peterson was on drugs, Khan got a point deducted in the final few rounds, and it was still a Split Decision.

Khan doesn't owe anybody shit. A large section of British fans have been hating on him for years, he gets booed out of the building whenever he appears on TV in arenas.

People (and I include Sky and Matchroom) who've done nothing but criticise Amir for years him, trying to guilt trip him into making a fight they hope he loses by knockout. With friends like that...
He didn’t used to get booed out of buildings. He gets booed because he won’t give the British public what they want.

Obviously there’s a section of fans that are against him full stop probably due to his race but it’s not been like that all his career. He was incredibly lucky to come through when he did & have the support he had & to follow in Audley Harrison’s footsteps getting to fight on terrestrial tv.

Joe Joyce for example is an exciting fighter & was robbed of an Olympic Gold Medal yet doesn’t have half the appeal that Khan did because he’s just one of many nowadays.

I’d have a lot more respect for Khan even if Brook flattened him in round one. The Sky team want big fights, they don’t care who wins as long as the big fights keep happening (unless it’s Joshua who they obviously need to keep winning)

I threw the term journeyman in to ruffle a guy joking about Kell getting his face caved in. My point stands, though. If Kell had only turned his back and run away, he may well have survived Errol Spence Jr.
The biggest mistake Kell made in that fight was actually trying to win in round 10 & going for the knockout. If he’d have just fought with a high guard after the eye injury & fought at a slow pace & accepted a points defeat he’d have got barely any stick because that’s what fans of the sport are like.

Hatton for example gets more stick for continuing to try to get to Mayweather & ending up getting knocked out than Canelo & others did for just giving in & accepting a wide points defeat.

I've no problem with Khan fighting Crawford over Brook. It's kind of hard to call someone a pussy if he turns down one fight for a harder one. I do stand by what I said though in that he's afraid of the fallout of potentially losing to Brook.

Harrison and Hurd both calling Brook out, both willing to travel.Hearn would be mad not to make the Harrison fight if that’s there.Against Hurd and Munguia he would be a huge underdog but against Harrison, you’d have to give Kell a chance.He needs to move on from Khan now(even though we all know he won’t), that fight is never happening.

Charlo has immediate rematch clause vs Harrison so assume he will take that up. Hurd is looking to fight Williams next. I reckon we see Brook back down at 147.

Why do people rank Terence Crawford near the top of P4P lists? Obviously he’s ridiculously talented but that’s not what gets you ranked P4P, surely it’s about fights?

There’s no way anyone can justify ranking him above Usyk, Lomachenko, Canelo, Golovkin etc & now he’s fighting Amir Khan?! How’s he even getting a world title shot? Crawford deserves some hammer for it.

Down to only fighting twice a year for the past 2 years whilst been proclaimed as P4P & is now defending against Khan who hasn’t had a decent win in about 5 years

Round and about
Can we finally stick a fork in Brook vs Khan, Who gives a fuck at this stage. Brook needs to finally accept it ain't happening and move on.
That'll never happen. Kell's Junior Witter with Hatton and Froch with Outlaw Joe C Wales all rolled into one. They're like a woman scorned, they never EVER let go. :lol:

Your right. It must be frustrating though knowing a guy like khan gives you shit for years but never backs it up by getting in the ring with you. I've always been of the opinion that Kell give khan a hiding and knocks him clean out, so its a shame he won't get a chance to prove it.

Khan only ever gave brook shit when he started shamelessly chasing khan while fighting bumm after bumm. Kell Brooks entire career is a joke

I still think Porter is a better fighter than anybody on Khans record, it still doesn't say much for the wasted talent that is Kell Brook. Amir took more chances in his career, won titles, went to America, bounced back from vicious knockouts and gave us some exciting nights, Im not an Amir Khan fan but that has to be applauded in some sense.
Well Julio Diaz arguably beat Porter right before Khan beat him

I also thought Kotelnik got robbed against Alexander right after Khan shut him out, this was when Alexander was being touted by Mayweather to be the next man to replace him and HBO were raving about him, beating Kotelnik the way he did was an excellent win
