    The only regret Khan had was not doing his due diligence on what weight Brook couldn’t safely make

    An expensive wife/lifestyle to maintain and a village idiot is a very bad combination

    Who on earth would attend the tune up?
    Failing that, if on undercard, how much would he get paid?
    Whole thing is ludicrous, but as boxing is becoming more and more being made a fool of with YouTubers, instant women world champions, and the sanctioning bodies!

    Anyone keeping up with khan's lifestyle the past few years knew he was finished.

    He's a moron and went off the rails when his family stopped running his life. He hasn't lived the athlete life for a long time.

    The fight had too much pride on the line to risk fighting with an injury. If he was genuinely injured, he would have pulled out.

    Heard it’s actually boxxer that are adamant about the tune up. They need headliners and khan still has the profile compared to anything they have to headline on Sky non PPV.

    they plan is to get khan if he’s serious about fighting again to take a sky headline fight against a faded or padded fighter. My guess would be someone like julius Indongo. Try to make the kell vs Eubank fight. Whether kell loses or wins they can still sell the rematch. If he wins it’s a big fight again if kell loses they will both be on loser retires marketing and have a few of skys bigger names on the undercard

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he was injured
    Didn’t do any pad work or anything of note in the open work out
    Looked a bit **** scared in the walk in
    the hate would of been hate would be through the roof if he did pull out

    I've always thought since she first appeared on the scene that Khan's wife would be his downfall. Gut feeling says that the poor guy has Jin Moseley 2.0 on his hands.

    Take into consideration his family ripped him off for a lot. I remember reading an article about it a few years back.

    He's probably not happy with what's left in the bank if he retires now, and thinks fighting on is his only option.

    He's a tragedy waiting to happen.

    Completely agree ref the instant women world champions. Those alphabet belts are worthless like the one Bridges won at the weekend.

    The depth will improve in women's boxing. Until then they should have less weight classes imo. The Bridges fight was a good fight.

    Khan might have had an injury, but I don't think it affected his punch resistance, and lack of Ring IQ and skills compared to Brook. Talk of him fighting Marku in Albania.
