Default Re: Brook Vs Khan- 50/50 fight?

at this moment in time id say khan 65-35, although moving up to 147 and brook has power could cause problems for him

khan is staying at 140 with good reason, he has no business over there.

Brook would probably be favourite.

I don't know why people call for Khan to go to 147. He can barely keep 140 fighters off him and also didn't he weight in around 146 fight time for the Garcia fight?

If Khan can take Brooks power, which I think is a bit overrated, it will be fun to see whether Brook can stay with Khan over the championship rounds.

Anyway Khan is too small to fight at 147 IMO.
Khan would be bigger then most up at Welterweight.

Taller maybe, but even if he weighs the same as his opponent I don't think he has the natural size, strength or power to keep welterweights off him.

Think about it, Maidana, Peterson and Garcia all weighed 150+ on fight night and I think you could see that during the fight. Now bear in mind the 147 fighters will be coming down from a much higher weight and be much more heavier on fight night.

Just my opinion but I can't see Khan doing much at welter.

The Kotelkink gameplan will return.

Khan to stay outside and win a comfortable and fairly dull UD.

I agree that Khan won't do much at Welter..you said size, not strength. Khan is huge at 140.

either brook bashes him up until khan gets stopped or khan's too quick and stays out of range but he can't do that, so I see Brook getting to him late 8+

My bad

But again despite Khan being huge at 140, strength and power wise he isnt exceptional.

Nah, man. Some of these welterweights walk in at 155 and above at least. Even some light welterweights come in that much (Peterson, Rios, etc). Shit, Khan weighs the same as what a soon-to-be lightweight, Adrien Broner, does on fight night!

The boy, despite his height and frame, is a pretty light guy. He should be kept away from 147 for as long as possible.
