I think the issue for Khan domestically is the fact he hasn't paid his dues here. He's spent his career over the pond.
How badly promoted has this Canelo and Smith fight been so far?
Nice to see Amir Khan keeping his fighting ambitions realistic and not throwing his hat into the ring (or should that be the Octagon?) to face Conor McGregor in the UFC...
Honestly, I'm a fan of his but he's really showing himself up with the lack of a plan for his career. He's got some involvement in a MMA league in Dubai (non-competitive) but this is laughable after a KO in his last fight.
I really dislike Eddie Hearn, but he's right, a defeat doesn't undermine Brook. Spence will be his mandatory, and he's plenty of options if (more like when) he loses to GGG. I think Brook will be a better fighter up the weights, so he's even got options in middle and light middle, as well as welter.
I still think Brook will struggle to get the big fights at 147, even after his fight with GGG.*
Crawford was brilliant last night.*
Crawford vs Pacman will be good.
Got to love GGG. Humble fighter and always smiling.
Khan can't stand it when he's irrelevant.
A debate on the Toe to Toe podcast on Sky Sports this week centred around what would happen - hypothetically - if Khan faced Garcia again. Can only see that ending the same way, to be honest.
Khan's worried hence he's talking up Garcia and even Brook. He's revealed he's been boxing with a broken hand for the last 13 years which is incredibly impressive but luckily he was never a big puncher, so not needed that KO power.
Also, just me that sees Brook look bit chunky in between fights? You can see from his face between now and fight time when he's leaner..
Trying to find a decent boxing podcast - I only listen to Toe2Toe at the minute. Any recommendations?
