It makes me feel frustrated that this may be yet another fight in boxing that us fans may miss. Both have hinted of moving to Welterweight, so why not settle the matter before that decide to leave the 140 division.
Haha thanks for your offer CEO but I don't think I have that kind of hate that qualifies me as a member of the Caravan, I'm neutral towards Khan. I think he is a decent fighter who does get criticized a fair bit, yet is fighting out of his comfort zone against decent comp for where his at in his career. I think your Caravan should be more than fine the way it is...it's packin' enough hate to cross over to his children..and his children's children LOL!
By saying that if Khan-Bradley do fight, I will be rooting for Bradley!!
You would be rooting for the Winner then...
I should have highlighted the part where he said he wanted Morales next...to me, that is horribly typical of him...he would then have Barrera's and Morales' names notched without deserving that honor (as shallow as as it is since they are shells)...but fair enough, The Caravan is almost at capacity and has plenty of fuel...lol
Allow me to tempt you, and any other prospective members, one last time with Khan's latest comments though...take in mind he is saying these kinds of things during fight week
...where's the focus on the fight?
First...he says he has one of the best chins in Boxing.http://www.espn.co.uk/boxing/sport/story/102021.html
WBA light-welterweight champion Amir Khan has roared back at his critics by claiming that he possesses one of the best chins in boxing.
Khan's boast comes after sparring sessions with pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao who, he says, failed to floor him with his best shots. Earlier this year, celebrated veteran Shane Mosley claimed he had never felt power as ferocious as Pacquiao's.
The Brit's punch resistance has been questioned ever since he was sparked in one round by Breidis Prescott in 2008, having already been to the canvas against Willie Limond and Michael Gomez.
But he is yet to hit the floor since teaming up with master trainer Freddie Roach, the man credited with turning his career around.
"Freddie has to tell me to calm down in training," said Khan. "In sparring when I get hit with a clean shot by big guys who are 154 pounds, I get straight back at them. That's my style.
"I want to show them they haven't hurt me and if they do catch me, it's the worst thing they could do because that's when I turn on. Sparring at the Wildcard is like a fight, it's not a spar. We throw full-on power shots.
"I pay my sparring partners a lot of money and because they're in Freddie Roach's gym, they're out to prove how good they are. I've proved I've probably got one of the best chins in the boxing business. I've been hit with huge shots in sparring.
"Manny's hit me with a clean back hand, his hardest shot, and I walked straight onto it and still stood there. He was asked if I have a glass jaw and he said 'what are you talking about, I spar with him and he's knocked lots of sparring partners out who are heavier'.
"And we fight hard in sparring with 12 or 14 ounce gloves, not big, big gloves."
Khan defends the WBA title against IBF champion Zab Judah at the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Secondly, he feels compelled to say he's the best British fighter...remember what I said about being a Savior and Pressure?http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/boxing/14222692.stm
Amir Khan believes his world title unification fight against Zab Judah on Saturday will prove beyond doubt he is Britain's premier fighter.
Khan, 24, will be defending his WBA light-welterweight crown in Las Vegas against IBF title-holder Judah.
"Pound-for pound, I'm way ahead of all the other British fighters, and I think people know that," Khan told BBC Sport.
One man Khan said he would not be fighting any time soon was unbeaten Sheffield welterweight Kell Brook, who has been calling Khan out of late and recently won the fringe WBA intercontinental title with a victory over the veteran Lovemore N'dou.
"If that fight ever got made I'd knock him out," said Khan. "I used to spar with him in the amateurs and I played with him, I know what the guy is all about.
"He hasn't fought anyone at their peak - N'dou was 39 and he took him the distance. I would have knocked N'dou out in less than five rounds.
"He's a good fighter but he needs to step it up if he wants to meet me one day in the future. I'm not giving him an easy pay-day, if he wants to fight me he has to go in with a big-name fighter so that he brings something to the table.
"But to be honest with you I'd never want to fight him if Barry Hearn is going to be involved in promoting him - they were very unprofessional in the McCloskey fight and Hearn started crying in the ring because I beat one of his fighters.
"If I beat Kell Brook he's going to start crying again and if he [Brook] wants to fight me he needs to go out on his own or get with a different promotional team.
"I fight dangerous opponents and you've got guys like Kell Brook fighting guys who haven't even got a 10% chance of winning the fight - that says it all."
Delusional...most educated fans know Froch is ahead of him...and why does he have to say all that in the first place?...does someone have to remind him he's got a fight tomorrow?
All I know is...I've viciously bashed Judah like everyone else has over the years...he's deserved it...but with this fight, he has an excellent opportunity falling right into his lap
....the positive signs for the upset have been gathering day after day...he has enough Skills and Boxing Intelligence to get this done.
If he shits the bed again, Judah and the word "Loser" will be synonymous...but if he wins, he's finally The American Hero he always wanted to be....BE that Hero, Zab...you can do it.
