I have read a few different articles about the ‘bravery’ of Amir Khan’t for getting into the ring vs Canelo last night, and I can’t help but to laugh. (Read this puff piece by Ben Dirs for Example)
Look for the amount of $ Khan got last night, I would have fought Canelo. Don’t mistake bravery for stupidity! And let’s not forget that Mr. Khan is and has been ducking a fight with Kell Brook since forever.
Sure, Khan did the right thing for his bank account, he is a business man, and went into the ring knowing like the rest of us that he would get KO’d before the 12th round. It was a fight worth bootlegging, not paying for despite what Golden Boy or any other promoter says. Khan running to the microphone after the fight to say that GGG and Canelo need to fight is laughable. Sure, they should fight, but Khan isn’t by any means going to rush into the ring to get knocked out by Kell Brook.
Give Canelo his props, he has been one to fight whoever, whenever, but don’t let his bravery be confused for Khan’s willingness to take a paycheck with a knockout. Khan got to hit the club with his money last night because he was well rested after sleeping in the ring, but if he wants to call himself a boxer, he needs to get into the ring with Brook.
