you think it's a good fight?


I think if Floyd looks rusty against Guerrero a Khan fight might be more interesting that people realize. Not a mismatch. However, I would like to see Khan have success with a couple of solid 147# first. If he can handle the weight and punches at #147, a fight with Floyd could be interesting. But fist things' first:

Khan needs a couple of fights at 147 against solid opposition
We have to see how Floyd does against Guerrero.

i thought bradley was the best at 140 so leaving to fight pac at 147 wasn't out of line imo. khan is not better than garcia, matthysse, peterson and possibly a few others at 140...so he's leap frogging all of them if they give him his shot at floyd. that's wrong. he should have to beat one of the guys i mentioned to get his shot.


I think he shouldn't leap frog any of them forget one of them. I think needs to decisively beat Peterson and Garcia at least

I'm surprised that Bradley was able to make 140 after a while.

What kind of foolery do we have here? This is the perfect example of how "Cash Rulez", when a guy who doesn't/Hasn't fought in the division yet, can some way some how, leap-frog his way to the #2 for the WBC. Then to top it all off, he's been set up as the "prize-fighter to face" in a tournament at 140lbs. which includes those who either have already, or are highly capable of Knocking this guys head off. This is the kind of politics in boxing that piss me off sometimes as a fan and I take this small time to vent here on FHC. No doubt Khan is a high action fighter with a glass jaw, but come on, 2 of the 4 guys in the tournament actually deserve the cadence AK's getting right now and if he actually fought someone at 147lbs., then should we be allowed to relay our arguments on where he should be ranked. Until then keep his name at 140lbs. and out of 147.



Yeah i saw this crap the other day and started to post it here but I honestly didn't even believe it was all that newsworthy as they are obviously trying to do a job by making this overrated clown appear more relevant than he really is, I hoping for the day soon when he gets totally starched again!!

i think khan is way too predictable to someone like floyd. i'd like to see him earn the shot as well.

the peterson fight was close....but yes, he should avenge or at the very least...attempt to avenge his loss to garcia before he's considered for floyd.

Man this really shouldn't be news. We all know how the WBC gets down, now legitimacy what so ever in their rankings. They just go with the flow, and GB is close to them so I am not all that surprised by this move. If in fact Khan is next he'll get Ko'd again by Floyd and I think he won't recover the next time he gets KO'd

Yes he is. He even said he was drained his last fight because he got outta shape


But its the wbc, cmon. They had morales ranked #2 before he even fought at 140
