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.

Realistically I can't see him taking a solid punch at 147 from big punchers.

the thing about khan is that he is a young guy who is still growing. he was at 135 when prescott ko'd him. he shouldn't have been there. he was at 140 when garcia starched him...and rumor had it that he struggled to make weight. his move up to 147 will definitely allow him to take the shots better. it's the way the body works. dehydrating yourself to make weight is dangerous. with all of this being said...his ability/inability to take a punch does not put him at #2 imo.

Thing is I said about a lot of 140lbers that think there all that and should get a shot with the cash cow, it's why I really didn't like Bradley, he left the 140s for a money fight when he'd never fought at 147.

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.
