    Algieri is not the WBO champ at LWW, he got stripped for fighting Manny. Ray Beltran fights a Jap for the vacate title next month.

    Amir Khan sounds so desperate and to try and claim the fight was never confirmed when he announced it is absurd.

    Stop with the pathetic delusional claims about always fighting top opponents. Who is he trying to convince other than himself.

    Nobody believed the rubbish Khan is coming out with. The guy is desperate!!!

    The truth is Khan wants Brook to lose so he gets away without fighting him.

    who gives a ****? couldn't care less about the politics just as long as he announces a better. People should be happy thsir complaints about the algeri fight haven't been in vain.

    its pretty obvious he's saw the **** he's getting for the algeri fight, so has his team and management, and now there changing there mind, as they think it will be a flop.
    he pretty much realised that when showtime dropped it

    Khan should not give up anything to make the Broner fight happen. he should just fight Kell.

    He justifies not fighting Brook by saying he's looking to fight Mayweather or PAC, like he's being brave only wanting the best. So is everyone else from Lightweight to Middleweight! What would be brave is taking on a decent welterweight in the meantime

    Just seen this article there .

    The worldwide sport of boxing .

    Amir Khan: I wanted to land a fight with Miguel Cotto, but that fight fell through when Cotto scheduled the fight for June 6th. Chris Algieri is still not yet finalized as the May 30th opponent, due to contracts still not being signed. Marcos René Maidana and Keith "One Time" Thurman could not fight me in May. Adrien Broner wants to fight, but he's not interested in fighting at the full welterweight limit and requested a catch-weight of 144-pounds. Eddie Hearn knew I could not fight Kell Brook on June 13th, due to Ramadan and that's why I'm fighting in the month of May.

    He has a point regarding Ramadan.

    If Hearn really wants to put the Brook fight on, then why doesnt he call Khans' bluff and offer the fight for the end of May. Then we'll see who's dodging who :good

    Tbf he did defeat Maidana when Marcos was a light-welter rather than a small welter. Khan's attitude may invite mockery but his CV is solid.

    Ramadan starts on or around June 18th so I don't see why he can't fight on June 13th

    the Ramadan stuffs ****, its 18th of june this year, he's fought at least twice against garica and Judah in the week before Ramadan. so can easily fight on the 6th of June, and could do the 13th of june too.

    Ramadhan bacm then was closer to winter when the days are alot smaller.
    Ramadhan now falls in summer and are 19 hours long with no food n water everyday for 30 days in a row. it's no joke and if he's come off for a tough fight I can understand him wanting to recover before ramadhan starts.
  14. Hes Amir Khan, I'm sure Ramadam won't mind if he misses a week of it.

    I'm sure it won't but maybe he minds if he misses ramadhan and that's his perogative.
