    if brook doesn't agree to the clause he should just stop talking about khan.

    plenty of fights at 154 :)

    Khan is terrified of Brook. I can never remember a high profile fighter as scared of fighting a rival as Khan is of fighting Brook.

    Apparently the hydration clause Khan wanted was discussed in a meeting and brooks manager (dad) did not agree to it, but dillusional Khan spilled it to the public that brook agreed lol

    What a idiot he thought as it was discussed somehow it was agreed and brook said yes lol hence why brook was confused about the hydrarion clause.

    Is Khan the dumbest boxer when it comes to PR or what lol now next predicted in this saga will be Amir saying "oh see I told you brook don't want the fight he won't sign hydration clause he scared blah blah"

    Clearly a ploy to try and make it look like brook doesn't want the fight.

    As this point in discussions,
    I'd like us to pause,
    Whilst I read you the details,
    Of Amir Khan's clause,

    Mr Brook you're required,
    On the eve of the fight,
    To pluck out your eyeballs,
    And remove your sight,

    In your ears we'll be pouring,
    A solution of acid,
    Whilst these pills that you'll take,
    Will be keeping you placid,

    In addition we'll need ya,
    Just to be fair,
    To staple your fists,
    To the arms of this chair,

    The ref he'll be ours,
    His last name will be Khan,
    And the judges will come,
    From far off Pakistan,

    Amir's gloves will be covered,
    In a substance hard as rock,
    In addition to punching,
    He'll be packing a Glock,

    You don't like our clause,
    From the way that you're looking,
    But if you don't agree now,
    Well for sure you'll be ducking,

    I don't think there's anything wrong with Khan's demand.
    It's completely fair as long as they both have the same restriction.

    I don't see how enforceable it is though. It would make more sense to put the weigh in back to same day as fight.

    Khan is right. A welterweight shouldn't have it as a inalienable right to come to the ring bigger than the middleweight limit !

    I'd like to see a return to late weigh ins. Combined with a pre fight medical that tests if the boxers are safely hydrated. I want to see guys 147 or just over contesting welterweights fights, as advertised. Not just a bunch of freaks who have a gift for draining and rehydrating.

    There's obviously a wider problem with weight bullies etc. At the same time this can easily rebound on the fighter, think of how drained McDonnell looked against Inouoe?

    I don't blame Khan for asking for it, but I wouldn't blame Brook for declining to accept it also. He's already moving further down than he's probably comfortable with. I'd sooner the fight not be made than it takes place with one side or the other citing a disadvantage.

    It's one demand too many. Actually, it's about ten demands too many. I've just had enough of Khan. Fight should've happened years ago at 147. Khan pulled out every excuse in the world, delaying and delaying while Kell found it harder to make 147. His ego is so big he can't accept being no.2 in Britain. I was one of the few who was still excited to see this fight but Khan is just taking the fun out of it now. I'm surprised he hasn't asked Kell to tie one hand behind his back.

    Certainly since Hatton witter.
    But at least Ricky was in the ascendancy whilst ducking junior, kahan peaked out around the zab superjudah fight off the top of my head.

    HOWEVER, Brook is the little ***** in this whole scenario, kahan is always going to take the **** as he knows Kell is desperate to fight him, I don’t blame kahan for taking advantage of brooks desperation although it doesn’t fit within my personal warriors code.
