Default Negotiatons underway between Brook and Khan

According to Sky Sports News.

Both men looking past upcoming fights, dangerous. But they could both lose and this fight would still garner attention.

Khan schools him with ease.

Why do you think so?

I think it's a possibility too. I think his speed could overwhelm Brook, who, while not slow, isn't in Khan's league in that regard. However, assuming the fight will be at 147, it remains to be seen if Khan has power at the weight. Even at 140 his power isn't great. And there's always that vulnerable chin to worry about. Tough one to call.

On a side note.. You can say what you like about Khan's personality, or attitude, but you have to hand it to the kid. He's not afraid to fight anyone and not afraid of dangerous fights. If every boxer was like that, the sport would be a hell of a lot more exciting.

Brook survives the first 2-3 rounds of Khan's blazing speed then walks him down, starts timing him and stops him in the 7th. Brooks timing to me looks pretty special, he will connect on Amir's chin at some point with a beautifully timed counter punch and it will be good night Khan.

I think brook has the power to stop khan and the chin to stand up to anything khan can throw especially at 147. However if taken to the deep ends as he was against Carson Jones, Brooks' stamina could let him down and he could lose the final 4 rounds and possibly the decision. Still should be a good match. I'd go with Brook by mid round stoppage or maybe a decision if he doesn't gas

The level of competition khan has faced compared to brook ain't even comparable. I saw brook v Hatton and that other american kid with the bow tie and he looked pretty ordinary against fighters he should be totally schooling. Khan on the other hand is losing to guys like Peterson and Garcia who are top fighters in the division, whilst beating tough guys like maidana, malagnigi, kotelink e.t.c

Brook has nothing to offer khan, brook power isn't like garcia's or maidana's, khan will have an easy night with this kid.

If Khan's not careful, Brook could mess him up worse than the guy in my avatar did. He's got the timing and the pop to do the trick.

It was in some guys post about Khan losing to top guys like peterson and Garcia. Pointing out that due to steroid use Peterson is not worthy of recognition

PED use does not turn a bum into a monster. There has to be some talent and conditioning already there to build on. If Peterson hadn't been on anything, Khan probably wins that fight by a close margin. It would still be a good win, over a solid fighter. Worth mentioning.
