lol you are ignorant. Stop pretending to know anything about the sport.
yes khan has a weak chin and ain’t all that, b class fighter at best but brook my ignorant friend at the moment at best is a d class fighter. You are just hating on khan and Ali because maybe they are Muslim?? Get over it who gives a damn what religion the fighter is. You watch the fighter not their religion.

brown bomber you’re an idiot… How many times was Ali beaten??? 5 times… Once by 196-pound Leon Stinks who was 6-0-1 at the time… Ali took too many head shots.

Look for Khan to take too many as well… Brook will murder Khan if they ever fight… Khan is scared stiff of Brook.

Hopefully this year we will see how much “skills” your man brook has.

Khan has speed… Khan doesn’t have championship caliber skills — especially on defense… Left hooks rip his head off.

He’s another Muhammad Ali and will end up the same way.

If you don’t prove you are good how the hell will you know you are good, ward done the business in the ring, brook ain’t done nothing.

Brook could be good Il give you that but till now he has fought bums and proven nothing, he went life and death with Carson, if khan had brooks résumé you would say he is a bum.

You don’t have to prove you are good to be good… That’s what I said and I used Ward-Kessler as a good example.

Ward had never beaten anybody. Neither did Kessler but the assumption was made that he did so he was a big fav.

Ward won easily because he was the better boxer. He wouldn’t have gotten the shot if there hadn’t been a “Super Six.” … Brook doesn’t have a Super Six but Khan could easily make 5 million dollars by fighting Brook.

He won’t because he knows he’d get knocked cold.

@tark
you don’t have to beat anybody good to prove you are good?? Seriously? Lol

no fighter is scared of brook, khan ain’t world class or anything but he sure as hell ain’t scared of brook. Brook turned down a fight with Bradley, and the $5 million was no official offer it was just talk and hype. Brook is just another protected British fighter.

Posted March 8, 2014 7:06 pm 


TARK

Who has Brook beat??? Who did Ward beat before he fought Mikkel Kessler and beat the trash out of him???

You don’t have to fight anybody to prove you’re good. The proof is the guys running from you. Brook has skills. He stopped a former world champion in his last fight. The guy who took Hatton out with a liver shot … a couple dominating rounds and the fight was over.

Hearn offered Khan 5 million to fight Brook… Not happening.

nobody is awarding defenses. and bred “thats why they call it self defense” lol. that line was a bit dense. how about thats why they call it “fighting”.

i think i described everything nicely below. floyd essentially fights the clock and runs the clock out. i also note that for most of the history of boxing or any fighting there was no time limit/ round limit. floyd simply could not run out the clock have low action and win if there was not a time limit. thats what fighting is about action and stoppages and thats why at ultimate “fight” club they get paid bonuses for best fight and best ko etc. floyd specializes in NON FIGHTING, non engaging, low action, riding a clock out ti a decision. generally its against weaker comp as well

Posted March 8, 2014 3:48 pm 


Real OG

What makes Floyd so great is his speed counter punching and his defense. The sweet science people who don’t know boxing call it running but he has proved he can stand right in the pocket and still not let landed on and slip combinations like he did with Cotto and Canelo. His best offense is defense and he is able to make adjustments on the fly to neutralize what the other guy is doing he hates a good jabber because it offsets his rhythm like Oscar was doing him so he goes to the body and made him stop throwing it Floyd is a master tactician and he knows what you going to do before hand. In order to beat a chess player you have to be one. Sugar Ray Robinson would have beat him but no one else from this era not even Manny he wouldn’t stand a chance all the power and speed in the world means nothing if you not landing all night and getting countered.

Miadana is much more impressive than Kahn, He just came off a big win over Broner no this was the better logical fight for Floyd. Kahn needs to prove he is worthy fatten the calf for the kill so to speak. Fight on the undercard win impressively and get your shot. Floyd will fight Danny Garcia in the near future as well All of his next bouts would be big. Since egos have not been able to be pushed aside for the Manny fight. Floyd is still the one calling all the shots in boxing…

Simple solution for Khan to qualify for a shot at Floyd or Bradley. Why ddoes he not call out and face the No.1 ranked contender in the WBC at 147 or WBO or the No. 1 in the IBF?

This way he will force through a fight like that whining b8tch Groves did, with Showtime Porter or have greater leverage against the big boys, Mayweather, Bradley or Pac.

In face, why not Khan face Marquez. I remeber how a few years ago Khan called out Marquez and said he would give him a real bad boy whooping.

Khan vs Marquez.

Make it happen!

brown bomber…. You’re nuts… Collazo hasn’t beaten anybody except a bum who been stopped 3 times in a row … Brook would knock Collazo or Khan out cold.

I’ll put my money down anytime those fights are made.

Same thing with Thurman or Porter… If those guys are ever matched with Khan or Collazo they will score devastating KO wins over the pair.

Collazo and Khan should fight… That’s the 2nd tier bracket.

“for example there wojld never be a successful mayweather tyoe in the ufc because them guys are fight fans.”

You are absolutely correct, Bears. In fact, Anderson Silva tried that once–just once–and after the fight Dana White met with him and told him that if he ever did that again, he’d never put him in another fight. MMA fans pay to see a fight.

yeah that was me dude. but i make it known what i dlislike about floyd below too. boxing to me is somethig different than lack of action, goin the distance running the clock out and coasting to a decision. also for most of history in a fight game people fought til there was a winner. not til the clock runs out giving it to the judges. the objective if fighting is to not let it go to the judges. not barely fight and run the clock out. the later isfloyd. fightig has never been about defense and to a fight fan it aint about defense

Khan needs to beat Brook, Porter, Thurman, Bradley, Matthysse, or Garcia to get a Floyd fight. His chances of beating that caliber of fighter are between slim and zero.

Seriously are you on crack bro? how the hell on gods green earth is brook a higher caliber opponent than collazo? how many quality opponents has brook ever faced? Even porter and thurman have yet to prove they are higher caliber than collazo.

in the deffensive game mayweather is the best. and thats good for him. its worked for him and he has gotten recognition for being the best. i wish i could appreciate it more than i come off sometimes. floyd has been effective with his style against the fighters he has chosen to fight. one begins to think floyd has a strategy in who he picks to fight and calling it a “strategy” is being nice about it

Hopkins and Mayweather they have similar style. Jab hug, jab run. That’s what you call preserving oneself! A contact sports who avoid contact. It’s don’t trade and don’t get hit hard shots but make sure you tap the opponent more than he tap you. Hopkins is pass 50 years old so I’m guessing Floyd can fight for a long time. I say a good 15 years before he retire.

Lil floyd’s has gradually lowered expectations for his opponents over the last half decade. Con just has to play the game. Con fits the bill in 2 of the 3 conditions lil floyd has. Con has some exposure & he is vulnerable. The last condition is to string together a single high profile win. Mosley did it. Cotto did it. Guerrero did it. Maidana did it. Big Red did it. Con wanted to skip the 3 step because he has a twitter account. It almost worked.

I don’t know why Khan has this obsession with Floyd
but if one thinks of it I can understand why. I remember the way Mosley confronted Mayweather after one of Floyd’s fight then, Mosley was his next opponent. Mosely looked awful and was stopped in that fight, I wonder what Shane is doing now ? Anyways, the point is everyone knows getting a fight with Floyd is a major money maker . . . . But whenever i think of Khan I don;t think of a great fighter but a guy with decent speed but having NO power, A Broner/ Khan would be GREAT because i think Broner would knock him out. Any ways, enuff sadi abotu this and I don’t know about anyone else but listening to han or peolke in his entourage keep talking aobut him and Mayweather has got quite boring and dull.. Time to move on to something or someone else… PEACE … Theboxingdictionary.com

I used to watch UFC in its early years but now I cant get myself pumped up to watch them. MMA is mostly grappling on the ground. 70%. its boring to watch them wrestling and tossing around on the floors. Boxing is standing up and fighting, even Floyd’s fights are more intresting compared to MMA. Thats why most boxers end up making MORE money than MMA fighters combined.

Floyd really fought in the Cotto fight.

He tried to get Miguel out of there. He couldn’t do it, but it was entertaining to see him mounting an offense and taking a few shots.

Boxing is a science not a street fight. If you like cauliflower ears try MMA. If you like wrecked shins or knees try MMA. If you like eye pokes try MMA. If you like the fans booing for boxing a round, or for waiting for your opponent to do something, try MMA.

If you want to be fair in 5 martial arts try MMA. If you want to master one martial art try Boxing.

for example there wojld never be a successful mayweather tyoe in the ufc because them guys are fight fans. they give awards out for best fights and knockouts not best lackluster performance using up the time and coasting to a decision. the ufc kind of shows the culture of a fightfan. and embraces what a fight is about. it aint about what floyd does. a floyd type can not exist in mma. its sad the tyoe exists in boxing. its an anti warrior type im not a fan of. he calls himself the best. yeah maybe at running and anti action anti fighting behavior in the ring. the best anti warrior

mayweather defeats the clock better than he defeats his opponents and the quality if his opponents is generally weak. instead of talking pacman, bradley, mathyse or garcia. dudes fighting ortiz, gueero, maidana, and kahn. wont consider the best fights at 154 and weighing 154 though he swears up and down he will. dudes a fraud and an eye soar in the ring. i wanna watch someone knock the clock out, and go 12 rounds to a lackluster decision. frauds my guy to watch. unfortuanetly i never let my eyes watch garbage. just a personal thing ya know? lol

these people talk about deffense and not getting hit bein the objective well actually i would like to say something.

for the majority of the life of the sport of boxing fights were not limited to 12 rounds. you fought til there was a winner and running around was just gonna waste energy. now floyd makes a living in on low action, anticlimatic, running in the ring. its really not what fighting has ever been about. fighting has been about fighting. im all for going back to fighting til there is a winner. if anything mayweather has made boxing look weaker and limited and has taken full advantage of running out the time limits and goin to the judges. mayweather is not a very entertaining “fighter” to me. he does not really “fight” much in his bouts if you ask me

I don’t see Mayweather vs Khan ever happening.

Collazo is easier than Broner. Luis fought only 6 times in the last 5 years and beat nobody important. But if Hunter can get Khan a Floyd fight off of beating Collazo??? I’d be amazed.

And nobody wants to see Mayweather vs Khan

Collazo caught the super hittable Victor Ortiz with a right hook—so he might catch Khan, who is maybe 10% better at defense than VO. All you have to do is keep swinging and you WILL catch Khan if you’re any kind of a puncher.

Now Floyd wanted to fight Khan but was too embarrassed to face that caliber of fighter. I don’t see that changing—even if Khan manages to beat Collazo. What I really think is he’ll end up fighting and probably beating Malignaggi again. That’s not the kind of opponent who could get him a Floyd fight … and neither is Collazo.

Khan needs to beat Brook, Porter, Thurman, Bradley, Matthysse, or Garcia to get a Floyd fight. His chances of beating that caliber of fighter are between slim and zero.

Amir is in a tight spot, he can’t even take what other elite fighters would consider a warm-up fight without a severe danger of getting knocked unconscious.
Credit to him for achieving all he has done with the punch resistance of a bantam weight, but he needs to cash out quickly.
