I agree primetime are shit at advertising the fight but the papers have been talking about it quite a bit. For the last few weeks I've heard about it on the radio ( talksport and 5 live) & read about the fight online in most of the British papers like the Mirror, Sun, Daily star, Telegraph, Guardian, Daily mail and independent. But this is still no where near the amount of publicity he would get if he was fighting on sky. Like it or not sky r the big boys and primetime r like the little kids wanting to be like sky.......... And pound4pound I got froch 1 khan 2 in Britain.

How dare he.

I agree he does and would suggest he use some of the money he is earning in hiring a good PR company/Max Clifford

But he probably realises even though he might rub people up the wrong way with such comments, people will still pay to see him fight, alot paying to see him lose, which he does know, like Mayweather

To be fair Hearn did start this, and I think Khan telling Brook to leave Matchroom before he even considers fighting him is going a bit too far. Same as Hearn saying in the post fight presser that Khan will never be a unified champ, why because he beat his golden boy Mcloskey

What would you prefer he say, "No I think it's between me and Carl, I'm an ok fighter and I hope that I win my upcoming fight against Judah"

Being confident bordering on arrogance is good for any boxer, that is if you have the tools to back it up, judging on Khans performances he does.

And quite honestly I think Khan has had enough of the crap he has received from the British boxers/public for whatever reason, although alot of us would agree what it really boils down to.

Being the good guy got him nowehere, being nice to to other boxers got him nowhere, Froch acted like a complete and utter scumbag when Khan was rebuilding his career after Prescott shamelessly trying to appeal to the Khan haters for some much needed publicity

Kell Brook twat
John murray twat

The list goes on and on

The only fighter who hasn't needed to name drop Khan was Hatton, says alot, if your successful you don't need to hate on any up coming fighter.

Yeah, thats exactly what he should say. Say it as it is, look at both his nand froch's resumes and victories and experience and titles and come to the conclusion that Froch is at least as good in his own division as I am in mine....

Taking yourself out of the comfort zone and taking off the protective blanket British boxing gives you.
I don't think Khan is some sort of pioneer for British boxing. Including Ward, Froch will have fought 5 huge fights away from home and definetley out of the comfort zone.

Froch has not won hardly any of his recent wins convincingly, so Khan is ahead in my opinion.

Khan admits Froch is a great fighter, but has he mentioned Carl in his statement. He's talking about himself, whether you or I think he is wrong, that's our opinion.

In terms of technical ability I'd put Froch ahead. Khan has fast hands and that's it.

Wow, with all due respect you have no clue. Khan is levels above Froch in terms of "technical ability".

And lets be honest, Froch is where he is because of his brilliant chin and that is really it. In all other departments he is average at best.

You have replaced a sweeping generalization by fleaman with one of your own.

I suppose he shut out Abraham because of his brilliant chin?
