Khan - signed with a US promoter and got a HBO deal. Not really a draw in the UK so went over to pick up HBO's inflated paychecks. And the only fight where there was a sizeable crowd was the Peterson one. And that's cos Peterson was the home fighter - and look what happened there...

Why should Brook go over now? He loses to Alexander and all the momentum that he's being building up over the past year is gone. Brook's not at the stage of his career where he's getting a US tv deal, he'd just be an opponent for Alexander.

Even if Brook wins there's no guarantee he'll be asked back by HBO/Showtime. He's gaining a following in the UK and once he's big enough over here he'll be ready to make the move across. It's all about timing.
at this guy.

Amir has drawn bigger crowds in the UK then Froch and Brook biggest crowds combined.

Who gives a sh*t though? As a boxng fan, you would like to see Kelly the loud mouth back up his words, right?

Fight was "talked about". In other words.... Hearn: We want Alexander come Sheffield to fight Brook. Golden boy: No. We'll fight him in USA. Hearn: NO..... End of "talk". This is PR by Hearn to get everyone talking about Kell in same breath as top names. It's kinda worked.

You idiot Khan is a bigger draw in the UK than Brook will ever be.

Rumour is Brook might be fighting Carson Jones.

Very entertaining fight, I'd take Brook to win but he'd have to be sharp.
