    Khan has always fancied himself. You’re an idiot if you think Khan isn’t going in to this believing he can win. Yes he knows that the Brook fight will still be there but there’s no chance he’s going in expecting defeat.

    HE should be applauded for taking this fight Crawford is a far superior boxer than Brook

    actually guys not sure how much the rumours are correct (from the US), but Khan has a counteroffer (i assume better than previous one?) from matchroom which is why he is delaying the official signing of the fight against crawford. This was due to be announced officially this week, with venue but it seems Khan either has mugged Eddie again and said "make me a better offer or i will sign to fight crawford" or he really is playing both sides for more money etc and wont sign until he gets a monster offer.

    I never said he wasn’t ducking Brook mate. He’s been ducking him for years. However, it’s got to the point though were Brook has got obsessed with it and will do anything to chase the payday, whereas Khan still fancies a crack at winning a world title. Brook should be trying to win another world title, it’s gone beyond cringeworthy now.

    I think Bradley ducked Khan at the time. It would have been the unification fight but Bradley vacated and moved up. Whilst I was disappointed that fight didn't happen, you can't blame Tim when he went on to massive fights at WW.

    Yeah Khan isn't daring to be great at all. He's just selling his chin to anyone but Brook.

    it was the other way round, it offered by top rank but Khan did not want to fight on the date due to Ramadan. So bradley moved on to another weight as he was tight at the weight as it is and didnt want to wait.

    I think there is some weight to the fact that Khan would rather take on much dangerous fighters at the risk of being flattened than face the possible humiliation of losing to Brook. I don't blame him to be honest, some fighters hate each other so much they don't want to give them the pay day or opportunity to beat them. Brook should let it go as he looks desperate whilst Khan saves face by taking on the bigger challenges. I think they are both tools personally and have lost interest is seeing this fight anyway.

    Khan is very smart and certainly not afraid of anyone. I’m no khan fan for the record. He is keeping brook dangling by a thread and loving it, brook is desperate for it.

    Bradley couldn’t unify with khan years ago as I remember he was going through promotional issues and didn’t fight for over a year.

    I'm a massive Brook fan and don't rate Khan that much however you can't really blame him for taking the Crawford fight. Every fighter should be aiming to be the best and having the chance to not only win a world title but fight one of the best P4P fighters is in my opinion a no brainer.
    As far as Brook is concerned I think he needs to forget about Khan forever and concentrate on getting a world title shot himself. I still think he has the ability to beat Harrison at 154 so should aim for that.

    I may be totally wrong but I think Khan just really can't be messed to give Brook a payday, to entertain him.

    Can't really call a man frightened, who then goes & fights a fella what can put you in twice as much of a state as the man people are saying he's avoiding

    Brook-Khan ship has sailed anyway, leave it go.
