Amir Khan: I Lean To Porter To Defeat Kell Brook

By Edward Chaykovsky

British star Amir Khan believes his coutryman and division rival, Kell Brook, will suffer a loss later tonight when he faces IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter in a Showtime televised main event from the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The fight is evenly matched, according to most, and Khan sees Porter pulling out a very close decision win to retain his undefeated record and crown.

"I am leaning towards Porter in this one because he has more big fight experience and that training with Freddie, never mind what he can do in the ring. But we know that one punch can change it all. I do think it is going to go the distance and probably be a split or unanimous in Porter's favor. If that happens Kell will still get my respect; to even get to this level and give it a go should be applauded," Khan told Sky Sports.
