Man, Amir Khan feels like one of those boxers that has been around forever


Bobo_Balde2

2004 olympics 😂


Cold_Night_Fever

Yeah because he made pro at 17.


Misanthrope616

Yeah I feel like I was hearing about him since I was a small child, and now I’m somehow only a few years younger than him


iKingKrypton7

Both guys made of vibranium


SalvadorSanchez883

And adamantium

Makes sense since it doesn’t exist.

Lmao

Correction, glass. The brittle tiny shattered pieces type.

Now kith


vHezoTheGoat

First power punch that lands someone is going to sleep or getting their orbital broken. Can’t wait.


Charlie-Bell

I mean, it took Golovkin and then 11 rounds of Spence to bust his eyes. You reckon they're now turned to dust to be blown away by pitty patty punches?

Charlie-Bell

Sure I got that it was a joke. I was joking at Khan's power too. But tbh, there is a fair discussion about Brook's chin and his eyes.


eddietwoo

Is Kell Brook known as a glass jaw? Man it’s been so long since I saw him fight


vHezoTheGoat

Not necessarily a glass jaw but his eye sockets are incredibly damaged at this stage in his career


[deleted]

He got severely ducked up by a crawford jab. I think his chin is cracked. GGG and errol destroyed 80% of it. Crawford just made his chin worse. So both are on equal levels chin wise for this fight


626_ed7

I think the weight cut fucked him up against Crawford.


iTisnado29

Yeah I think the weight cut and not having Ingle in his corner hurt him a lot. Kell had some good moments in the fight but going against a P4P savage like Bud while struggling to make weight and not having your main coach isn't a good idea. Kell also had all his moment coming forward right into Bud's jab which didn't help at all


deh707

>Kell also had all his moment coming forward right into Bud's jab which didn't help at all And isn't Crawford right-handed too? Passed prime, gone through savage beatings in previous years, weight-drained and moving into a hard power-based right handed southpaw jab (kinda looked like a hybrid hook-jab)...? Yeah that'll do it. Impact-wise, it's not too different from walking into a nicely timed speed-based cross.


iTisnado29

Well said! You definitely summed that up better than I ever could


[deleted]

you’re overthinking the jab lol, kell got timed and he basically leapt into it, it was a hard shot. being right handed doesn’t have to do with that.


Benjips

Thank you Mr. Arum


captainseas

Cool, I have ESPN+, I’ll watch


iTisnado29

It sucks this fight took so long to be made. Kell was my favorite welterweight but absolutely wasted his career away. I always favored Kell's timing and power against Khan but now I see it as a lot more even. Kell looked good against Bud.. until Bud made the proper adjustments, which is the story of his 3 losses. Now that he is back with Ingel I hope that helps get the win against Khan. Khan has had a good career but fuck is he annoying and I would absolutely hate for that wanker to beat Kell after dragging out this fight for so long. Definitely gonna tune in for this one on ESPN+


LordVile95

Kahn still going? I’m surprised he can shave without knocking himself out on the razor.


Lurking_nerd

🤣🤣🤣🤣


InterestingIce1928

This is way past the expiration date but I am still not complaining.


grannysGarden

Can’t lie I’m pretty excited for this!


teachlifelivelife

Dont know how ppl feel but im hyped up for this one!


Valkyries_84SS

Remember when brook got stabbed in the leg in Marbella for trying to give a guy a blowjob.


Decryptografter

Come again?


pineappledaddy

He tried, but the guy stabbed him.


Charlie-Bell

Lol. For anyone who doesn't know, he genuinely got stabbed in the leg while on holiday. The rest is pure speculation. You can't prove nothing!


Littlestereo27

Thats pretty rude. Why would you stab someone that's offering you a bj? That's a pretty polite favor of kell to offer.


kwangle

Kell is clumsy with his teeth.


Wavepops

Lmaoooo


the_timeisnow

Wasn’t it also in the dude’s home? Apparently Brook went back to his place after partying to do coke and who knows what else.


Valkyries_84SS

Yeah it was, did a few lines then brook tried to play a game of hide the sausage and got sliced up.


apeonjupiter

Hahahaha


MannyDaD00G

Anyone remember the Crawford Khan fight, bc I don't


36_foxtrot

Glass balls

This fight is 7 years overdue.

P-redditR

Too bad it’s not on the DAZN. It’s going to be a good fight. But I think Brooks KOs Khan.


Beej1030

I want Khan to win, Brook spent his career waiting for Khan, Khan went after and got the big fights against difficult opposition. Khan of long ago was one of my favorite fighters to watch even if he is a bit of a tool now. Heart leans Khan, head leans Brook


iTisnado29

Curious what big fights Khan got while he avoided Kell. Canelo and Bud? I can't really think of any others


Le400Blows

Avoiding Kell? He fought Canelo and Bud. That’s running into fire instead of away from it


Beej1030

Even if he ‘avoided’ the most evenly matched opposition, being Kell, Khan went and got paid for taking on challenges and became a superstar. Brook was never much more than a UK star, like he stayed in his hometown talking shit about his highschool rival, and Khan went and lived his life


_Sarcasmic_

Was hoping for DAZN.


monkeya37

Come to think of it, when was the last time a big fight was aired on DAZN? I want to say Mungia vs. Rosado but I could be wrong.


_Sarcasmic_

The last I watched was Parker-Chisora 2.


reznoverba

Missed opportunity by them.


lamarcuswallace

I think Top Rank has a deal with Sky Sports so you'll probably see their fights on ESPN+ like Queensbury Promotions in the past.


chocobo-selecta

Makes me happy that this has been picked up. I hope they show the full card, and not just the upper end.


LatterTarget7

How many buys does this do?


iTisnado29

This isn't ESPN+ ppv is it?


LatterTarget7

It was ppv last I heard. Tho that was before espn picked it up. So honestly not sure anymore


captainseas

It’s not on ppv in the US. It’s just on ESPN+. I don’t think a UK show has ever been on PPV in the United States.


iTisnado29

Probably PPV in the UK


Unforsaken_Dick

99% chance Khan goes to sleep 😴


Live_Return_4504

this time the tale of the amir will be like "felt bad and fell into quitrent even before hitting the chin"


badaboom888

amir no chin khan needs to retire


AltKite

Odd that you'd single out Khan here, given Brook is the one with 2 caved-in eye sockets.


dirt_shitters

They're both shot fighters. Kahn had no chin in his prime and it's been cracked several times at this point, tho.


badaboom888

Brook more crumbles under repeated punishment i guess vs khan who does the reverse superman once his chin gets touched. much more memorable
