Yeah I'd love to see that, they have similar styles, Brook seems a bit stronger on the inside, but I think I'd have to edge towards Khan just coz of his experience.

Watched the boxing tonight - Once again AJ's opponent IMO a waste of time - BUT what a boxer that Russian looks called Artur Beterbiev - WOW - He's Lethal!!!

Yeah AJ needs to step it up man, heard he's gonna be fighting Kevin Johnson next though, that will be a decent test. And yeah beterviev is a beast been watching him for a bit now, he's smashing through the division, I think he'll go far, definitely can't wait for him vs Kovalev

Yeah I agree him vs Kovalev will be a great fight, he took his last opponent apart, I happen to think Kevin Mitchell is going to take a huge beating, AJ were not happy after his last fight.

Can Frankie Gavin beat Kell Brook? Seems like a totally mis-match to me, should have been Amir Khan.

The closer the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight the more I think Pacquiao will win.

C'mon Manny!!!

I heard Kell felt Amir disrespected him when he asked for a fight so not sure what happened.

Long story short, Khan is in the sweepstakes for a fight with Mayweather or Pacquiao, and doesn't wanna risk losing to Kell

Yeah sounds about right, watch Khan lose to his next opponent though, due to lack of focus lol.

Johnson may very well take a beating but he's sill a huge step up lol, least we'll be able to see where Joshua's at. I wouldn't call Brook vs Gavin a mismatch, I think it will be decent, Gavin is a good outside fighter, I think the early rounds could be competitive, but Brook will be too much in the end I think. And I'm not feeling it lol Floyd all the way still for me. And yeah could very well happen, Khan always performs in the big fights but becomes complacent against guys he's expected to beat

Have any of you seen the rumours flying around that Mike Tyson might come out of retirement to fight Mayweather too?

I'm being serious....

Lol never heard that one but it will never happen. One thing Tyson did right was leave the sport when his time was up and was sensible enough to leave it that way. There have been a lot of comeback rumors over the years, every single one of them proved to be false.

Plus Tyson is a HW haha, so not sure how that would work, fighting a guy half his size.

Trying to find the article now but think I've got it crossed and think it was him coming out of retirement to face Klitschko brothers.

Think Tyson said it was purely for the money aspect but as you've said, very much doubt it'll ever happen and is just another silly rumour. Be awesome if it did happen though...loved Iron Mike

Probably haha and yeah it is all just rumours mate, he would have a difficult time against Klitschko in his prime, never mind when he's old fat and hasn't put on a pair of gloves in 10 years lol, it would be suicide and he's smart enough to realise that. What a fight it would be between these two in their primes though!

As the fight gets ever closer I still think Pacquiao could/will win this fight.

I cant believe i didn't know about this till recently!! I heard rumours but always take them with a pinch of salt. Having watched the press conference last night i can say Floyd seems very nervous a lot more than usual but that's probably because he is putting his 47-0 on the line against somebody he knows can beat him. Im rooting for Floyd but will fear the worst Manny will have to get a ko to win i doubt he will win a decision.

I agree Mayweather does look nervous, worst state I've seen him in. I think the fear of the unknown too will be playing a part and I just think Pacquiaos team and training will be more precise. Even Ricky Hatton said Pacquiao punches harder, so will be a very good match.



Naturally I'd like Pacquiao to win with him being Filipino and I've lived in his country lol.

I wouldn't say nervous as much as emotional, but I can definitely see why people would pass it as nervous, but tbh we just don't know with Mayweather it could all just be an act haha. Still think Mayweather is gonna give Pac the beating of a lifetime
