    Previously I would have favoured Khan over Brook. I'd have to go with Brook now. Brook at 100% beats this current unmotivated version of Khan.

    I mean, he's made his money, he's got a kid, does a lot of charity work. I just don't think boxing interests him as much as it did say three years ago.

    This is the issue.

    Khan has supposedly improved his defence with Hunter and become a better fighter (is in his best years).
    But he's not fighting enough for us to see how far he's actually progressed and on the other hand, Brook is fighting a bunch of nobody's.

    If I was to call it, then Khan on points. Does Brook have it in him to face Khan head on and go for the knockout? Cant see it happening, after 1 decent fight in his career. Then again, can Khan handle it?

    Guess this is what makes it an even more special fight.
    You've hit the nail on the head, mate. You've written down my exact thoughts. That's what makes boxing so exciting, in truth. Who'd have bet on Fury to beat Klitschko in Germany? Bar Kenan, obviously. Funny things happen inside the ring.

    Khan made a huge mistake not fighting again this year and at this rate it looks very unlikely he'll fight again until Spring.

    Haye wins in the first round over De Mori. Joshua next? Unlikely but maybe end of the year, possibly.

    Those two would only have a puncher's chance against Tyson IMO.

    I really believe Wilder could beat Fury. More power, more skill, just a more polished fighter overall.

    Wilder is learning each and every fight he has, that much is clear, but last night's confrontation with Fury is glossing over an exceptionally poor performance from him.

    He's just a pumped up basketball player. Fury has been fighting his whole life.

    Wilder struggled last night - more than I expected him to. First time he'd faced a southpaw since Harrison, though, admittedly.

    LOL apparently Fury had a confrontation against Nottingham big man Froch but the latter ran off/hid behind security but another reason to like Tyson Fury!

    All on Twitter. I don't think they've massively got on tbh - Froch mentioned after Fury's title win of how they trained once but wouldn't put it past Froch to say something that ticked off Tyson and Carl ran for the hills!

    Froch apparently told him he's representing British boxing and he shouldn't act how he did. Regardless, Fury would have no problem with Wilder imo.
