My prediction for khan was that he would get stopped in two.TBH I was surprised Khan lasted that long. It's always the same old story with Khan, he causes his opponent trouble for a couple of rounds with his speed, his opponent adjusts and hes stopped shortly thereafter. I agree though with your point about Brooks eye sockets, it's why I ultimately think he gets stopped. Not before putting up a cracking effort though.
Even so I expected him to be fast and competitive while it lasted and until he got caught...The general consensus amonst the pundits was khan would win the early rounds and then get caught.
But what we saw was Khan fought like an 8 year old in his very first sparring session. No jab, no balance , no speed, no skill, no footwork...rushing forward throwing flailing punches and missing...its like he forgot everything he ever learnt.
So if Brooks on form mentally and physically I think he could hurt and finish Crawford early...Thats my opinion.
If his mind is not there then a possible humiliation would be on the cards.
