    I'd rather Khan-Crawford tbh

    I couldn't care less about Khan-Brook anymore

    Khan has mugged Hearn off here
    I knew deep down he was always gonna pull a stunt on Eddie

    Still the Crawford fight should be entertaining

    Box Nation have a deal with top rank so could be on that however as its espn PPV I would guess the deal doesn't include that so will be an open bid.

    Could you imagine if Sky bid for this and win
    Khan gets a brutal KO and then they have to promote one more fight he is contracted to
    Crap for Eddie all round
    Hearn should put him in with some Monster for his final fight and kick back and enjoy it

    Eddie should have written it into Amere Cons contract that he would face severe financial penalties if he ducked the Brook fight.

    Eddie has had his trousers pulled down on him here. It was really predictable that this would happen.

    At the time Khan didn’t have many options he was semi retired and inactive coming out of a reality TV show. It was a real low point for him and he may have signed still

    He gets sparked out by every name you have mentioned, and plenty you haven't.

    Khan has very fast hands, his speed is still very impressive but he still makes the same mistakes, he loves a fight and stays in that pocket too long, and he gets caught. He appears to be even more vulnerable to a shot now. He’s a warrior but he’s no longer a top 10 welterweight and hasn’t been for a long time.

    He’d be a fool not to take it IMO. Be a nice payday, another profile boost, a world title shot and the Kell Brook fight will always be there. If anything this strengthens Khan’s hand in negotiations. What’s Brook gona so whilst Khan has his world title shot? Step up and get destroyed by Hurd? The best think Kel could do is rematch Porter but he’s got a fight in March. There’s not much out there for Kell at all.
