"Eddie Hearn keeps saying Brook is a big draw, but he's not,"

Khan speaks the truth

you can argue about the logic but he wants the tough fights that get attention in the States.

the Brook fight would be big here and thats about it.

I'm no fan of Khan but his CV is incomparable to Brook, who has had one real quality opponent in 36 fights.

I absolutely hate Brook for no other reason than he refers to his fists as his "chocolate brownies"

And Brook is dead set on fighting non-entities. Nice padded record. It's embarrassing the way he is obsessed with Khan. If he really wants the fight then he should get involved with the big names in the states. He's mentioned Thurman and Bradley and how he'll fight anyone anywhere but then goes back to Khan straight away at Wembley or Bramall lane. He's an absolute clown.
Again he is the champion and he sounds like a 15 fight novice trying to get a big fight.

A 12 year professional with one genuinely decent win on his record. He's absolutely shameful.

I don't like Khan, but he has consistently taken on the top guys since he first reached World Level.

Hearn wants to big up Kell, but he wants no part of Khan until Kell is looking at a retirement payday.

This is it. Hope Khan gets the Garcia fight next and Eddy rocks up with a mandatory for Brook on the undercard of some poor show. Maybe then Brook realises he is wasting his time and career with Hearn.

Povetkin tests positive for a banned substance so Wilder fight most likely off.

So Alvarez has vacated the title and it has been given to Triple G. What a let down hope they can still work it out and get the fight on. If not there's always Saunders.

That whole line up was a joke nee wonder it was on dave. I don't know what rankings they are looking at as well that has Haye and Shannon Briggs rated highly to warrant hyping it as a superfight. I'm embarrassed to be a boxing fan tonight.
