I've seen so many boxers not recieve criticism for even worse comments about others and themselves. The fact that no one has a thing to say about Brook saying "i'll do Pacquiao" years ago when he was facing absolute nobodies tells me a lot about the general feeling and hatred they have towards a paticular fighter in Amir.
Becoming the best boxer in Britain gives you the right to say what you want?
I worry about the order of which you treat particular people then.
I worry myself but the point still stands, Froch is the number 1, he can claim it without the fear of being ridiculed, Khan is arrogant enough to still claim it even though, he isn't in Froch's ballpark and never ever will be.
