Lol sad but true. Although in his last two fights Dib has fought at super feather and lightweight so as steps up go Khan's taking a pretty small one for a 7m payday.
For 7m no ones gonna say no...It will be even funnier if they decide to rearrange the fight with the Indian kid later this year and pay Khan another huge check.

Irony here is Khan will probably make more in this fight then Kell has in his entire career.

And Khan is making the same amount Hearn was offering him to fight Brook..lol.

Dibs is about the only person involved in boxing that Naseem Hamed has remained in contact with over the years.

I hope channel 5 have Naseem Hamed as part of the commentary team...That should be fun.

Not many people know this but Billy Dibs is Hameds protege...From what I recall Dibs when he was a 17 year old amateur sent some tapes of his amateur fights to Naseem Hamed...Naz had him fly over to Sheffield and he stayed at Naz's house and trained with him....Hamed convinced Dibs to join the professional ranks.

They have remained friends since with Naz flying over to Australia for visits and vice versa.

it's funny now that the arabs will probably start rooting for dibb..maybe?
Doubt it..Khan is the bigger star. Billy is not that well known plus he is from Lebanon not the gulf states.
In anycase its just a showcase publicity event... They dont care about boxing in that part of the world.

According to the Sun.. The Saudis want Khan vs Manny Pacquaio for November 9.

So if Kell Brook is under any delusion that he is next he needs to think again.
