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.

Hes probably ranked there becausze they want him to face mayweather next. it has nothing to do with earning the spot. look at canelo when he fought hatton hatton never fought at 154 yet he was ranked 2 right before their fight so canelo could get the belt. i dont think mayweather wants to fight canelo yet so hell take a tune up against khan who is still a big name in the sport. but who knows?
