    Khans dad ''he only fought Billy Dib cause he was a late replacement''

    The original opponent was an Indian guy who is even worse than Dib haha:lol::lol:

    I can't stand Brook despite being from the area and I was a big fan of Khan. Hope Khan wins but lets call a spade a spade and not try and flog it as something it isn't... no talk of the winner being in line for a world title shot or anything please. It's little more than an exhibition at this stage in their careers.

    This should have been the fight that brought British boxing into a new era.

    In 2014 or 2015, it could have captured the country's attention and the enthusiasm of both hardcore fans and the general public.

    Instead, Froch-Groves II took that mantle, and brought big stadium fights back. They'll both always be remembered for that one event.

    For whoever wins this, this won't be the defining moment of their career, as it could and should have been. For Khan, it'll always be his Olympic medal and questionable chin, and for Brook it'll always be the Golovkin fight.

    I hope this crashes and burns. Let this be a lesson for all future all-British grudge matches: give fans the dream matchup in your primes for the biggest possible reward, both professionally and financially.

    TLDR: I won't buy it and won't watch it.

    The outcome of this fight really depends on how brook is at the weight.

    Let's call a spade a spade. Khan has no chin what so ever, and brook is, or at least in his prime, is super accurate with his punches.

    If brook is ok at the weight, he'll obliterate Khan.

    Will watch but obviously won’t pay.

    I think Khan will knock him out early for what it’s worth assuming his handspeed is still there.

    He even put Brook in the ring after Khan's seconds-long comeback fight against Lo Greco or whatever his name was...

    Was hoping Sky might lower the price to send a message to Matchroom.

    Khan has imposed a hydration clause day of fight. I think brooks dad implied it was a fine of a humongous amount if he is above. I think he wants 10lbs on day of the fight after weigh-in

    Price hasn't been mentioned yet, but I wouldn't hold your hopes too high. Let's wait and see though.

    Brook said he was offered more money by Eddie but chose Sky as it made it a bigger fight

    7 years too late. I just don’t care who wins whereas I’d have been rooting for Khan back in the day.

    True. Casuals have more access to Sky than messing about subscribing to DAZN.
