Khan vs Vargas/Garcia vs Porter Live Thread

Amir Khan is back in action this weekend against a fighter that will last longer than 1 minute.Hopefully. Khan will be hoping for an impressive display before he targets a world title or one of the bigger names in the division. I think it goes without saying but Khan cannot afford a slip up at this point in his career especially against an opponent like Samuel Vargas and I expect him to put on a professional performance. The rest of the card is fairly dull but the biggest fight of the night is undoubtedly Garcia vs Porter on Showtime for the WBC welterweight title. It's a fascinating clash and It has the makings of a fight of the year candidate. I'd give the edge to Porter because of his work rate and volume but Garcia excels against guys that come forward and his back foot ability is massively underrated.

As Guv said, Khan has been ducking Brook for a long old time, and Khan is still clout chasing... whatever

Anyhoo, yes, i'm going for GGG to win as well.
Points i'm thinking.
Although, that's if Canelo possess the same power/strength post meat gate, then we in for another blockbuster.
Canelo's skills are all there to see, and GGG is just a supreme nutjob. tough tough tough.

Khan thinks he’s fooling the world but in reality he’s fooling nobody. For arguments sake let’s say he faces and beats an over-the-hill Pacqiuao for the belt, do you really expect him to voluntarily defend it against Brook? Hell no, he’ll turn around and say:

‘He needs to earn his shot’
‘I’m a champ and he isn’t’
‘What does he bring to the table?’
‘80/20 split take it or leave it’

As for GGG and Canelo, I’m backing GGG on this one. He’s looking and sounding more menacing than ever! I can see a stoppage in 10/11

Man if GGG does stop him.... what a moment that would be.
Did Canelo look skinny?... he looked a bit animated. And his corner over egging it. Some would say they looked a littlt scared...
whats the rehydration clause for this fight. Anyone know?

Canelo did look slimmer than the first fight, not too sure about any rehydration clauses

Haha yeah. Seen the video too. Floyd acting like an idiot as per but I so hope they fight meaning Khan gets left out again

Khan will try insert himself. Fly over there. Get ringside. Open his gob.
Maybe theres a ring girl opening??

If Floyd is trolling Khan, it's genius.

Heard about this earlier and thought it was just Mayweather and his camp talking nonsense, but Pacquiao has gone and posted this on his own Instagram as well. Which means only one thing...

“I want Mayweather then I want Pacquiao.... Please please please please please I beg you both!!!”

You reckon Hearn is paying them to screw with Kahn?.. that would be hilarious..
