    If you wasn't a boxing fan, you wouldn't have a clue about it. It isn't being rammed down our throats by a promoter, it isn't in this country, it isn't PPV and you don't have to watch it. So don't let it get you down.

    At the end of the day if people in Saudi are prepared to pay a fortune to see Khan fight Dib then why should we complain? It's not affecting us and assuming he wins well gives us a chance for him to set up another big fight hopefully over here.

    He's been an excellent servant to the sport.

    That fight has dwindled in demand !

    This is the best option for Khan to make a few quid.

    I think being Pakistani and the only boxing star of Pakistani descent is a big part of it. That and good management.

    Certainly a memorable career. Here you have a guy who has so many gifts, and yet, one enormous curse. I don't think getting KTFO by the elite should get a guy opportunities. But as others have mentioned, he has multiple marketability factors.

    The jungle does wonders for one's profile - look at Arry Redknapp

    Roly Poly Puddings have never been so popular

    Terrible isn't it, Spike and Channel 5!!

    I feel so guilty watching it with no subscription, surely there is a way of donating a few quid for it!!!
