    I was just joking. Its like khan claiming that hes being discriminated against in the uk. I was being tongue n cheek. I guarantee you that virgil hunter would calm him down. Khan would never have lost had he not gone head hunting against garcia.
    didnt he train hatton v fmj?

    thought Khan gave a much improved performance against Collazo
    fair enough no one respects Khans punching power which is pretty poor but if he uses his speed he doesnt need a KO punch, just hit and move for 12 rounds that is better suited for his abilities which he did well against Collazo - he never got dragged into a brawl and frustrated Collazo

    Maidana is a warrior, have always liked him since seeing his fight v Ortiz - FMJ struggled some early on but I think he dominated the 2nd half of the fight and like many others I had him winning 7/8 rounds of the fight

    Charlie zelenoff still around....unbelievable. I thought this tool would have been done by now. Last time I seen him he sucker punched fmj senior. Now he racially abused wilder and threatened to sexually assault his daughter. As always after wilder agreed to fight him it didnt look to good for the idiot. The video is on youtube.

    Check out how fmj senior schools him in the ring. At the end you can hear him call the other dude a dirty chimp. Racist piece of crap needed to be taught a lesson .

    I use to be part of the money team but then I realised he was ducking the true p4p king Charlie Zelenoff. Dude hits like 5000 psi even tyson, foreman and frasier managed around 1800-1900.

    Saw this post on a boxing website, comparing the resume's of Khan and Brook:

    32 fights each and the combined records of their opponents:

    Khan - Wins 754, Losses 163

    Brook - Wins 639, Losses 919

    Khan: 7 World Title Fights, Unified Champ, 5 Defenses of the WBA version, Kotelnik, Judah, Maidana, Malignaggi and Collazo

    Brook: 0 World Title Fights and the most notable names are Senchenko and Jones.

    Khan had an outstanding Amateur record i read he was unbeaten for years at one point. I wouldn't even compare Brooks record to a world champion who has fought ellite fighters at the pro level never mind the amateur credentials.

    Khan wins it by a country mile! However that said if Brooks beats Porter, i'd have to give preference to Brooks regardless of Khans past achievements. I see that ring magazine still got brooks ahead of khan in the rankings however that may be down to the fact that khan has only had 1 fight at this weight(?).
    I dont see why you rate Senchenko, i dont think he's world calibre.

    PS although Brooks hasnt fought anyone of note. Khan hasnt beat anyone of note since Maidana.

    Also dont see how brook ends up having a better career then khan by beating porter, in that case buster douglas and hashim rahman would be remembered as heavyweight legends rather then one hit wonders. The legacy of a fighter is determined by his quality of opponent, there are reasons why manny is said to be the one to have a better career then floyd i wouldn't question that even though i feel floyd is the better boxer compared to manny.

    Kel Brook is a good boxer imo - he has a lot of potential. Anyone who has seen him box can see he is a strong puncher with good technique
    the issue with him is his lifestyle outside of the ring and his dodgy foot injury but if he can buckle down he can create some headlines. My friend worked in the Kel Brook camp so I know a fair bit about him and he speaks very highly of Brooks boxing ability(he also knows Kid Galahad and has been telling us for ages how good he is) but as I said, he can lose the plot outside of it and that will inevitably effect his career if he doesnt nip it in the bud soon
    Would be surprised if Brook got the better of Porter though but its about time he took the step up in class so we can all have a better idea of what hes about against better opponents but this may be too big of a step up too soon
    As for Khan v Brook well that likely wont happen for awhile if at all, had you asked me who would win awhile back, I'd have said Brook because Khan was boxing pathetically due to his ego and getting pummelled by participating in brawls when he has no power and a dodgy chin, but if Khan boxes the way he did against Collazo, hit and move then he will give everyone problems and Brook would really struggle to keep up with that version of Khan.
    Khan has been inconsistent, a bit like the Pakistani cricket team you dont always know which version is going to turn up


    good luck to Faizy, he deserves all the good things in life and wish him the best with his career

    Who else had Groves ahead at that stage, despite Jim Watt being retarded as usual on commentary.

    I had 4-3 Groves. Great punch though, George was too busy trying to land his own left hook.

    Jim watts almost made me regrett buying the ppv. The whole team bar Malignaggi were biased as heck. I wish they'd broadcast as alternative audiostream so we dont have to listen to that cretin.

    I agree, i was so happy when I found out Paulie was going to be assisting. Jim Watt is so senile it's beyond a joke.

    Paulie also pulled them up on the 2 early stoppages in the Mitchell and Degale fights. Watt and Hawling were all ready to crown them P4P contenders :lol

    got a decent stream online to watch the fight
    feel sorry for Groves and the way he was knocked out
    bit of a silly counter to throw a left hook whilst seeing the right hand coming
    shames Groves doesnt have much of a punch else the fight could have turned out differently both times as he is a very good counter puncher, in each fight Froch was under pressure and pretty much behind on the scorecards but his iron will and punching power meant he was always able to turn it around which he did

    maybe they will have more fights there after this one pulled in so many people. Froch made what, 8 million from this fight? most people in the US will be happy to get 8 million us dollars.
