Like I said, they're creating options. That's his team's job. If one opponent they hoped for doesn't work out, they can always fall back to another deal. If they don't have options in place, they could be stuck with time falling short, meaning no fight.

It's how it works.

I agree, a good solid JrWW who poses a minor threat would be nice, but Danny Garcia was that man !, Khan has limited options unless he's thrown back in at the deep end !, even then his options are still limited as the top guys are claiming he's irrelevant

Soto for me fits the bill, but i can understand the argument
No he hasn't, he's not been fighting Joseph Laryea types, just solid guys, he's never fought the best in his weight class as a champion.

You think Judah is a better win then Maidana?

Greengrass was a legend, he made it watchable, every Sunday night depressed because you had school the next day you could always count on Greengrass to cheer you up.

Ouch, hit me where it hurts. Its not that complicated a concept, son.

Khans team and you, their new advisor, have done a bang up job of his career so far. Great options the likes of Prescott, that Cuban coach, that random strength guy


The business knowledge extend to this fight too?

Cos everyone on here seems to this its totally retarded to look a McCloskey as an option, no?

This is why no one gives a flying **** about his circus like career anymore. **** him the hypocritical deluded twat.
DeMarcos Corley vs Amir Khan would probably be a better fight. But harder fight to sale.

It amazes me that McCloskey has fans? He is boxing's equivalent of the colour Grey.

Yeah, if it's not a complicated concept, why couldn't you understand the post I replied to Jim Bowen with?

I'm not affiliated with their team, but I'll defend them here.

Firstly, Prescott was a last minute resort. Another option, as the other opponent had pulled out. It was not his team who selected Prescott, it was Frank ******, who rightly admitted blame for this, post-fight. He selected the opponent, and matchmaker Dean Powell agreed with it, so where does the blame lie with team Khan here? Maybe for not looking into the opponent much themselves? Sure, alright, but that was his promoter and matchmakers job, not there's.

That Cuban coach? You do know he's the head trainer of Guillermo Rigondeaux, right?

You still don't understand. He's an OPTION. As retarded as you may think a choice like McCloskey is, a team rightfully has to create options.

You say it's just a basic concept, yet you don't understand yourself.
