Title: Boxing
Post by: Quagmire on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 23:17:12
Any boxing fans on here? Don't think we have a thread.
Brook just convincingly defended his title against the mandatory opponent, called Khan out again straight after.
Really rate Brook, would fancy him against Khan personally.

Post by: DMR on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 23:24:58
Would be a cracking fight. Khan can only really afford 1 more high profile loss though and I suspect he'd rather save it for a Mayweather or a Marquez etc


Title: Re: Boxing
Post by: Quagmire on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 23:32:13
I can't see Khan taking it, for the reasons you've said.
Brook gets some stick, but I don't agree when people say he's only looking good by beating poor opponents, I agree that he has had some poor opponents, but he has beaten them convincingly, where as Khan, who has definitely proved himself against better boxers, has also lost to some average opponents, Brook beat Porter in own back yard, I think he's a class act.

I can't believe that was the number 1 contender. Looked out of his depth. Brook was class though. Some knockout in the fight before too.


Title: Re: Boxing
Post by: Batch on Sunday, March 29, 2015, 19:57:47
Thought the guy in the fight before was in serious trouble for a minute. Thankfully looked OK though.

Brook was class, effortless.

Agree with those that don't think khan will take the fight. Brook is too dangerous and not yet a big enough purse for Khan to risk the end of his career on.

Crolla was superb just then, Joe Gallagher got his tactics spot on and he's just proved how good he is. He's just stopped. Very good fighter.
Going to set my alarm for the Khan fight, what does eveyone think?

Gallagher has improved as a trainer brilliantly. There was a stage wher all his fighters were fighting in the same style but he seems to have learnt from that.

Felt for Amir Khan saturday. Absolute shambles the way this country and it's boxing fans treat him

Fighting Canelo instead of Brook has to be one of the worst decisions in boxing history.

Supposedly got eight figures for it, and the Brook fight is still there as a money fight because nobody truly expected him to beat Alvarez so he gained a fair bit of credibility for stepping up at all and putting up a decent showing. Thinking like this is why we get fights like Mayweather/Berto, and why GGG can't get anyone of note to fight him.

That said, I'm not sure Khan's doctor would have been delighted with that choice.

I couldn't disagree more, I actually think it was genius.
The Brook fight will still happen and he's still mandatory for Danny Garcia's title, hardly the worst decision ever made.


Title: Re: Boxing
Post by: ChalkyWhiteIsGod on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 13:12:55
On what basis do you work that out?


Two parts, firstly the actual fight…..
On one hand you have Canelo; horrific prospects to win the fight. Style wise alone, was always a terrible fight for Khan and everyone knew it. Even his trainer made noises he didn't like the fight. Even in the best case scenario, he was always realistically looking at some serious heavy blows taken against a much bigger guy. Not good for your health and the longevity of his career.
On the other hand you have Brook who is an excellent fighter, but of comparable size. It's a difficult fight also but it's much closer to a 50/50 fight than fighting a monster like Canelo. You’re not going to take anywhere near the same amount of damage fighting Brook as fighting a guy like Canelo.

Then if you're looking at the money……
Khan reportedly made $2m USD from the fight. Not chump change by any stretch but how much would he have made in front of 80,000 at Wembley which they could have done if the struck when the iron was hot? Not even in the same ball park as $2m USD! Froch made £8m pound sterling for winning his fight at Wembley. Well over 5 times the purse.  Khan may still fight Brook, but he has lost his bargaining power now coming off a loss so won’t get anywhere near the same share of the purse. The fight won't make as much anymore anyway because interest in it won’t be anywhere near as high as if it was done at the right time.

He essentially threw cash down the drain and lost a lot of brain cells for the privilege. Awful decision and whoever is advising him should be ashamed.


Title: Re: Boxing
Post by: Nemo on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 13:30:34
$2m was Khan's declared purse, after PPV points & ticket sales the estimate is about six times that. You're comparing guaranteed show money against all the money Froch made from ticket sales & TV, apples and oranges.

Besides, if he lost to Brook then Canelo would be off the table, but this way around, everyone still wants to see the Brook fight.


Title: Re: Boxing
Post by: Don Rogers Sock on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 13:39:31
After Pay per view figures Khan earnt just under £9m with Canelo earning £14m.

I would also add that the Brook fight fight will always be there as he has yet to have one decent payday and still has to resort to after dinner speeches to make a living. On the flip side Khan has had 3 different world champions call him out in the last 24 hours.

I would say the decision was spot on

Khan to fight Garcia, if he wins, then he has a better bargaining position for a unification against Brook (Providing he comes through his mandatory) next summer in a big stadium.

This I wont fight him because we don't get on, its just talk to heat the fight up a little, all boxers do the same. Mayweather and Pacman were at it for years.

Figures might be off then, I was just going off what I had seen reported, but he clearly would have made more fighting Brook at Wembley.

He still chose the harder fight for less money, which whatever way you look at it is stupid. Commendable as a fighter and I don't blame him, but the people managing his career need to have a long hard think about the decision making process.

You keep saying that he would have made more money at Wembley without providing any evidence, while your own figures suggest he made more than Froch did for an arguably more saleable fight (lets be honest, Khan has never done as well in Britain as you might expect, and Brook isn't exactly a household name either). Canelo is the biggest PPV star in boxing with Mayweather retired, and Khan has clearly got a very nice pay day.

More to the point, 'managing his career' - the loss to Canelo has boosted his career, he's been called out by all sorts of decent fighters, and could still fight Brook if he wants to, which he clearly doesn't. A loss to Brook, whilst less likely, would more or less end his relevance on the international boxing stage.

For arguments sake, say he made more or at least a figure in the same ball park (lets be honest, none of us really know, it's all speculative articles from journalists). It's still a terrible career decision.

I don't think you're appreciating what a brutal KO like that does to a fighter physically both in terms of being more susceptible to KO's in the future and long term health. Brook represented a regular boxing match with a guy Khans size and stature.
Canelo is a much bigger guy and hits like a fucking truck whereas Khan is hardly known for his chin.  The fact Amir's trainer even admits he thought it was stupid to begin with and was then talked in to it tells you everything you need to know. Taking the fight was like playing football on a minefield and being surprised when your leg gets blown off.

Post by: smalltowngypsymassacre on Monday, September 5, 2016, 20:54:19
Brook has more chance than Khan did against Canelo, at approximately 0.00000001%. Seriously, many people don't understand how good Golovkin is, which is understandable as there are no bells or whistles attached. But take it from someone who knows, there has barely been a Middleweight in history who could hang with GGG, never mind a blown up Welterweight like Brook.

Haye v Bellew tomorrow, anyone ordered it?
Easy night for Haye I think, as most do. Can't see it going passed 4 rounds. He's a level above Bellew in my opinion.
He's split opinion in the lead up to the fight, Bellew has really got under his skin, hopefully we see a half decent fight.
If Haye does do the business I hope he steps up his opponents later in the year and I'd like to see the AJ fight at some point.

What I don't understand is that in the presser they 'had' to have two blokes between them to avoid any trouble.

Bellew thanking Haye for safeguarding future of his children and suggesting he was near the end of his career and couldn't take on Joshua etc.

Just on the achilles snapping thing -

I was once packing down in a scrum (No7 - position of kings) and our tight head snapped his achilles.
Everyone heard it snap, and everyone heard the spine chilling scream.
We then saw the lump in his calf.
(quite a few months before he could play again)

Hayes definitely didn't snap his achilles from what I've seen

(but I'm not a doctor)

I snapped my Achilles playing football in Luxembourg in our weekly Sunday kickabout. Not a soul near me and I was just jogging back to my penalty area and all of a sudden a loud crack as if i had trodden on a twig in the woods and I was down on the floor.

Of course someone helped me to my feet and to put weight on it but it was totally gone and took me about 30 minutes to shuffle home on my normal 5 minute walk.

I can't actually remember the pain but I was told that I screamed like a girl so it must have been painful!

Rupturing my ligament in the other knee was painful also! I reckon I'm going to hobble around when I'm an old(er) man!

Yeah I mean I expected a few incidents but not to the point where it felt legitimatly unsafe. Security ill equipped. People being bollocked for vaping in the stands yet go into the toilets and loads are smoking weed unchallenged.

Summing up of the evening was seeing a fight come down the stairs onto the concourse. One guy approaches a steward for help who puts her arms up helplessly as the other guy runs up and punches him in the back of the head. Both are sent BACK TO THEIR SEATS.
