    Not too sure about that mate. I'd fancy Taylor to beat him tomorrow at 147 if they fought.

    You anti Jock mate?

    Tyson Fury and Josh Taylor are our two elite fighters

    I personally think Khan has to be the favourite, as Kell cannot make the weight at this point. So dont be surprised to see Khan push for it now

    He doesn't. This guy raved about Eubank JNR being the second coming. Clueless.

    Josh Taylor is a hype job, should have lost to Postol but got a gift decision. Pretty dispicable

    Khan would knock out Benn. Way too fast (provided he still has decent handspeed now). Khan is also bigger than Benn.

    **** knows what version of Khan you’d get nowadays but I’d agree, let’s not forget he once beat Maidana who has mixed it well with Floyd Mayweather. Conor Benn has to prove he’s above Brit/Euro level first.

    It would be an interesting fight at this stage. Khan is finished at world title level so if he is to continue fighting and wants to headline and/or fight on big shows then I would have no complaints with Khan vs Benn. Not sure Khan's ego would allow him to become seen as a gatekeeper though so it's a fight I can't really see happening. Would pick Benn to get the win if it were to happen though.

    Thr fact we are even entertaining the fact Connor could beat Khan shows how shot Amir is or perceived to be.

    I'd pick Khan, surely to quick and experienced for Benn even at this stage.

    Khan's always done well against the lower tier fighters up untill a few years ago when non punching Sammy vargas almost KOd him.

    Anyone now has a chance to spark him.
    Benn might not be the guy but the fact its even being talked about shows how much Khan has fallen.

    I think a fresh CB could get the win, even khan's speed has looked great in recent years.

    Jesus you must have had a few pints yesterday. Must be the only person in the western hemisphere picking Benn to beat JT.
