Khan has backed himself in to a corner. His only real options are the WBC belt which he is mandatory challenger for or a summer fight with Brook who has said he is willing to take less money even though he holds the IBF belt and that would be his 'voluntary ' defence.

If Khan doesn't fight either then it's the most blatant duck in years. It's funny how Mayweather has effectively ruined Khan's career without even fighting him.

Such a shame that Khan is wasting his best years. He is one of the most entertaining fighters in the world to watch. There is nothing better than a world class boxer who is vulnerable. Bomber Graham was the same.

when he wins the WBC belt he fights brook on an even field. be a corker of a fight and as good as brook is, khan could derail him.

Seen clips of Khan having a bit of a go with mayweather at ringside during the Garcia fight last night. I think brook may also go for Garcia now Khan has swerved him.


RE: Knocking One Out - Cheese - 01-24-2016 08:56 PM

when did khan swerve garcia?/ sure he said he was interested....its garcia who has said they aint interested but khan is mandatory for garcia.


RE: Knocking One Out - whotobeA - 01-24-2016 09:20 PM

Now Khan has swerved brook, think brook could go for Garcia. Also a strap in it for Garcia if that fight was made & he won.


RE: Knocking One Out - Cheese - 01-24-2016 09:22 PM

khan is mandatory for garcia.


RE: Knocking One Out - drsrhino - 01-24-2016 09:31 PM

Garcia HAS to fight Khan next. Garcia's interest in the fight is irrelevant. If he is that disinterested then he will have to pay Khan step aside money or vacate the title.

Khan isn't mandatory for Brooks IBF title. Brook has to take care of brazier next to earn his voluntary defence. His voluntary defence would be Khan as it's a payday which he thinks he easily wins. He is even willing to take 40% of the purse which is extremely generous considering he holds the belt. Khan of course wants 80% knowing full well that won't work.

If Khan prices himself out of Brook and takes step aside money from Garcia with his religious fasting getting in the way in June (I think) then it will be late this year before he can get in with a top 10 fighter as the others are already scheduled before June.

It would be an obvious swerve IF he fights neither of these. Lament Peterson on may be available though???

Garcia, who is unbeaten in 32 professional fights, knocked out Amir Khan in 2012 and the Briton says he is keen on a rematch.

Khan, who attended the Garcia-Guerrero fight at the Staples Center, was expected to fight compatriot and IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook in the summer but negotiations have stalled.

Khan, 29, is the mandatory challenger for Garcia's WBC belt but the champion's father and trainer, Angel Garcia, says they are not interested in a return match.
-----------
With so many straps, vacating isn't a massive issue now. If Garcia & his odd ball dad think the big money is elsewhere I'm not sure where Khan goes?
