They raised capacity to 8000 after selling out the initial 5000, doubt the 16,000 though.

So he's not really fighting at the main MSG as he says he is. The minor version of it. A bit like main Wembley and the conference/small venue thing.

Yes its quite common at Khan fights, if the ball was on the other foot peope would say it was racism.

They all think they are Naz clones with a super KO punch, get a few of them on their own and they will not even make a whimper.

Not unlike the white louts, who hurl racist abuse at Khan at each of his fights, you're are really reaching with this racial shit Kurt, you should be ashamed.

I had always imagined the atmos to be very nice at a Khan fight with all colours cheering on the same guy, bit dissapointed. Cant stand the crowd at fights tbh, full of knuckleheads and pikeys - way to rough for a nice boy like me.

I was doing the security, or should i say part of the security team at Khan v Earl.

After the fight had happened some of Khans fans kicked off with Earls fans who where obviously pissed off. All i saw where Khans fans dissapearing.

From what i saw though there where alot of asian "toy town toughguys" there who where just being total knobs.

Its the bain of our existence as fight fans, in no other sport do people claim to be experts in the same way with zero knowledge or experiance of the sport, they just think its fighting and are still high of they're last win from years ago in infant school when they made somebody cry.

My personal favourite is (say during a 12 round fight in round 9) "why dont he just smack him, go nuts".

I'll never forget watching a fight with a work friend and he suggested they should just run at each other with arms sticking out, like jousting with fists. I swear to god he was only half joking, it was only when I stared at him in disbelief he began to laugh it off.
