Amir Khan

I see he is now fighting on sky box office. How can they justify charging people 15 to see him fight as he is no where near world class or fighting for a world title?

Shocking if you ask me. Same goes for the WWE how the fuck can they charge for that shit?

It's fucking sickening, sky are already giving it the "Prescott is a huge puncher" "unbeaten" bla bla bla when lets be honest Frank Warren will have had him checked out enough to know he poses no threat, he's not stupid, this kids record is padded with wins against boxers who have never even won!!! Khan is not even proven as the best in Britain yet due to avoiding other fighters and yet here we are with him on pay per view fighting a nobody, incredible.

I genuinely cant believe it, it doesnt surprise me though because there are complete mugs out there who will actually pay for this stuff. And the same people will still be paying in 5 years time as he defends whatever title he's got against someone who come last in a reality tv show or something.

I think you gotta say that applies to all of Fwank Warren's clients. I just hope what happened to Macaranelli doesn't happen to Khan as Khan is so much more talented.

I was wondering about that the other day, Khan is already desperate for a world title now how much longer is he going to wait before he demands one? Then if Warren caves in as he doesnt want to piss off his future meal ticket Khan will end up getting schooled by one of the champs then what?

I agree with Warren that Khan isnt ready (He cant even clinch properly yet ffs) but he also should be stepping it up, he should of taken care of the domestic scene now and now be moving on towards a fight with people like Romanov. He's done nothing of the sort and is still fighting no marks or people out of their weight class (or both).

The last fight i paid for was Lewis V hollyfield II. Sky PPV Boxing is the biggest scam going in world sport. Pay 15 to see smeone knocked out in the first minute. We can all thank Don king for this shit. I use to love Boxing when i was younger but sadly cannot aford and won't pay to watch it on sky. The last free world title fight i saw was when Lewis got beat by than yank in SA.

I don't know a single person who is going to bother paying for this fight. Plenty of people i know have followed every fight of his to day but they won't be paying for this. I don't blame Khan for going to Sky at all, so would any one of us and he's got nothing to lose because he will get even more media coverage now.

His opponent will be very dangerous though, i think he is in for a real battle. For the columbian lad, this is the biggest day of his life, his career maker. He's been brought up in poverty and you just have to look at the state of his gym and his poor surroundings to imagine how hard he will battle and what this fight means to him. Chance of a lifetime. Khan better be ready

I agree with you V, I have followed his career to date as have loads of lads i know but not a single one will bother buying this. I reckon Sky have fucked this up beyond all belief, whats the odds that his next fight will be just a Sky Sports exclusive?!

All ppv boxing is fucking too expensive, reckon in this time of cutting back they will have to have a re-think on their whole ppv policy.

I'd love to see the numbers of people who pay for this shit. I certainly won't be. Surely it'll be the lowest audience for a PPV ever.

Stupid move by Khan and Warren of course, they will get abpit 10000 buys max IMO. Anyway, as I've always said Amir needs to get rid of Warren or he'll be just end up being another mediocre British fighter managed by Fwank Wanker Warren.

Warren cannot do anything about his glass chin but protect his cash cow for as long as possible, so in that respect the selected opponents are understandable.

A World Title seems miles away, and it would be an incredible achievement for Amir and for Warren LOL!

Yes, but Khan can get a coach and management team that can help to develop his talent and work in his weaknesses. Anyone can get floored if they hang their chin out like Khan does, his defense is awful and his ring generalship is still a bit amateurish.

Yes, and that is why he has this new Cuban trainer - lets see if he makes a difference.

What does he stand for? I don't understand.

As for his weight category, why should he step up into a category he would be weaker in? Surely it is better for him to fight in a weight category where he is most effective.

I am just trying to understand why you hate the guy.

I for one will not be paying for that. I hope this premature box office hit is a total flop. what ever happened to paying back loyal followers.

100% agree mate.
He already thinks he is the best in the world. He has to realise he has a lot of work to do first, or he will fall flat on his face. Literally.
I don't mind fighters being confident, but, they also must be humble and not get ahead of themselves.

yup all this talk of title challenges is far too premature, he was knocked in his last (or the one before that) and that wasnt by anyone who was ever going to be remembered as a great.
