That's quite the undercard. Very solid. Teofimo Lopez being groomed as Lomachenko's next fight? Tatli is in the top 5 for Lomachenko's belt's rankings. Lopez gets a high ranking, possible #1 contender beating Tatli, no. Arum loves those in-house fights.

Would be interesting if that's the route they go. Although I could see Loma dropping a belt, Teofimo winning it, and then building him up with a couple of defences before they do Loma-Teofimo.

$69.95 lol for one of the biggest PPV mismatches ever

I saw someone recenty (think it was a famous boxer or trainer) say Khan was beating Garcia until he got caught, he got caught in the 3rd round lol he only won 2 rounds wtf, this fight will be exciting but its a mismatch

I wonder how many buys BT are expecting for this fight? Khan's star power has dropped considerably over the last few years, Crawford isn't a name in the same way as Canelo, and barely anyone is giving Khan a chance of winning.
Starting this evening during the Man Utd vs West Ham they will advertise the fight and during Champions League games next week - perfect opportunity one thinks.

Unlike others I felt like Khans biggest asset was his delusion, no matter how much he was mocked ridiculed always seem to have a deluded belief in himself.

There was something admirable about that.

This fight I dont really see it..he seems to be saying the right things. Like an Audley Harrison, but just like Audley looks like the conviction is not there. Having watched that BT documentary mentioned by dkos ... I feel that deluded self belief Khan had os no longer really there.

Whatsmore he is no longer talking like a fighter aiming for big and unexpcted goals. Talking more like a guy whose mind is focused on retirement and life after boxing.

We might end up with an Crolla vs Lomachenko type of performance here...once he realises Crawford is just to good.

Just seen this youtube comment on a Crawford interview, I swear Khan brings out the dumbest boxing fans

"He'll have to outbox Amir Khan for me to even consider him P4P number 1. Just getting the knockout don't count, Khan already been knocked out, but he's never been outboxed completely"

I find Khan so insufferable these days that I'm actually annoyed that he got this fight. Crawford within four rounds, Khan to look dreadful. Again.
Crawford would be the favourite here but Khan will be a very live underdog.

On his best day, he's better than Crawford, but there's that shakey chin.

I expect him to be leading after 4, but as the fight progresses, there's that shakey chin.

I’ve heard a lot of people try & make out that he didn’t look good against Vargas because he was rusty & underestimated him, I don’t buy that, I think he’s almost done.

He knows he’s getting knocked out Saturday & the plan is to cash out with back to back fights against Crawford & Brook

The closest Khan has come to actually taking a beating was against Garcia. Bud has a mean streak a mile long though & undoubtedly he'll be inflicting some severe punishment on Khan before the eventual & inevitable stoppage.

Head to head interview couple of days out from the fight...Crawfords got what Appollo Creed called the Eye of the Tiger....one hungry fighter vs one who has had a chicken with every meal since he was a kid.

Khan looked surprisingly more calm then I expected...Crawford looks like he is raring to go...ready to "Destruct and Destroy" as Marvellous Marvin Hagler. Used to say.

Just some stupid questions from Bunce..well stupid questions and Bunce go hand in hand no surprise there.

Wont be surprised if Crawford demolishes Khan quick and early.

If anyone can Khan can! Nah see another big KO rounds 3-6. Amir looks finished to me, his body looks soft too. Would love him to pull off the upset all the same. One of my best mates just so happened to be in New York this weekend and got a ticket, lucky git.

In other news Kell Brook has especially flown...out to be ringside for Khan vs Crawford.

This rhetoric about moving on with his own career and following his own path was short lived...lol.

Brooks obsession with everything Khan is on another level.

So who is he going to be calling out? The beaten Amir Khan or the champion Crawford.

Maybe he wents to collect a loss from Crawford as well... before returning to calling out Khan. Or perhaps just trying to generate press attention of the back of Khans name as per usual.

I assume Kell is no longer planning to fight on the Joshua undercard. Nothing has been announced since he stated he was.
