    Looks like it’s all official now. Got to say hats off to Amir he’s played a blinder.

    Not a fan of Khan but he has amused me the way he has played Hearn and Brook
    And I like Brook

    Good on him. Probably his last shot at a world title facing one of the p4p best. He will still fight Brook no matter what Hearn says about it never happening if it doesn’t happen now. I always enjoy watching Khan fight but this is a tough ask. Hope he does it though. And I hope this encourages Brook to take a big fight also.

    Khan needs to look into the long term effects of being rocked dropped and stopped
    He's not brimming with brain cells

    Khan proving to be an elite level troll.

    Crawford is fantastic but khan will be the fastest puncher he's faced. Khan will have natural size advantage also. To be honest I've got mixed feelings as i really like Crawford but at the same time just look at the opponents Khan has faced! ~he will literally box anyone . I can see Crawford winning but I'm hoping it's a great competitive fight . I personally don't rate brook (never have) and the khan /brook match up is obviously well past its sell by date . As long as khan is competitive against terence then the public will accept the cash out against brook And judging by brooks last performance Khan beats him

    Crawford may have the longest reach that Khan has ever faced, Amir`s whole style is based around exploiting a reach advantage and staying away from the inside using quick feet and clinching, it will be more difficult dealing the best jab he`s ever faced, and as soon as he`s close enough to be hooked Crawford`s power will be far too much.

    Is he? He’s not expected to win against one of the p4p best in the world. It’s a bit like the Khan-Canelo/Brook-GGG fights. Everyone knew who would win but they gained respect from a free hit so to speak.

    He stepping in against one of the best in the division... again. Even if he gets ktfo he will get respect from me, nothing humiliating about stepping up giving it your all and loosing. Respect to Khan, looking forward to this one.

    People saying he'll be humiliated, I disagree. I don't reckon he'll see the final bell but while he's in the fight he'll be more than competitive. I reckon come the 5th round people will be thinking, 'wow, can Khan really do this?' Of course he'll gas by the 7th and be sparked but it'll be a good fight

    this is clear he would rather get KO'ed against Crawford than Brook. Brook is much heavier puncher and he rather go crawford route. This guy really thinks he beat crawford on the backfoot? Brook fight is more winnable but he swerved.
