........................................

Thaxton vs. Kahn for the prestigious British Title

Purse bids to be held Wednesday 9th January 2008 at Midday at the British Boxing Board of Control.


England - January 3, 2007


British Lightweight Champion Jon Thaxton says that after all the disrespectful and big talk from rival Amir Kahn he better be a man and step up and fight.



“Amir make sure your team shows up for the official purse bid on the 9th of January and let this be sorted in the good old fashion way, I know my promoter will be there ready to make this fight happen, no excuses. So for the sake of British Boxing don’t bottle it!”



“While you were busy shooting off your mouth, my promoter Mick Hennessy formally made your team a great offer of Three-Hundred Thousand Pounds for the fight. Your promoter refused the offer, saying “it was not acceptable” then a couple of days later it’s announced your fighting in my opinion, a feather fisted Dane, it’s obvious to me that someone hasn’t got confidence in your chin.”



“The British public deserve better, they deserve to see him in a real test and that’s me. Kahn has publicly stated the he wants the British Title, well I’ve got it and he has to come through me to get it!”



“ Lets give the British fans the fight they want to see, I feel our sport was almost ruined a few years back. When high profile fighters and promoters, chose to run after meaningless belts instead of pitting the best against the best. Last year our sport changed for the better I want to continue that trend in 2008, do you Amir?”



“If you find an excuse to weasel your way out of this fight, I will personally come ‘round to wherever you are and hand you the four feathers”



“So after all your bravado, you now need to put up or shut up, start walking the walk and not just talking the talk”



Jon Thaxton – British Lightweight Champion

fair enough.

I dunno, i thought that Steffy Bull was gonna give Khan a spanking... but there you go.

I just think Thaxton vs. Khan would be a ****ing brilliant fight - its about time we had some domestic fights to be proud of.

Haye vs. Maccaroni - is the first good fight this year.

Make Thaxton and Khan the next.

,i didnt think steffy would mean anything,

earl was in a totally different league to steffy, and i really couldn't see how anyone would have thought steffy would have remotely challenged amir.

Aye, well Steffy Bull is from where i live, so i knew a little more about him. I knew he was a good fighter, brave, heavy hitter.

But, alas... he seemed petrified of Khan. Like most of his opponents (other than Limond). Yep, Steffy just ran and ran, because you can't hide.

I hope Thaxton gets a chance, because he ain't getting any younger.

LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Ty for making laugh lol..

Thaxton is such a bull****ter, he wants a big pay before he retires and he's hyping this fight up before it's even happened.

How stupid is he gonna look when he does lose...

yeah i hope this fight happens in April.

Not really impressed by Thaxton when he fought Dave Stewart.

Thaxton has a punchers chance but Khan should win comfortably.

Ive never really been a fan of Amir,but it was a great showing against Earl and I think he's turned a few of the doubters around ,but Thaxton will be a stiffer test if the fight is made....but I'd expect the outcome will be the same..Thaxton has the mouth but not the ability, but I'd like to see him beat Amir,I just can't see it happening.

lol lol Easy win for Khan. Scott Lawton was outboxing Thaxton before the Cut, and Dave Stewart was outboxing Thaxton too. Khan's way ahead of these guys, not his league.

Scott Lawton on Khan vs Thaxton:

Bah get me the interview with Lawton before the bout, he never went there with any intention of ****ing winning.

to say thaxton just has a punchers chance is stupid.

The fight is happening because 1. Jon Thaxton's promoter will put in a purse bid even if that gob****e doesn't., 2. Amir Khan will be stripped on his commonwealth belt if the fight doesn't happen. 3. The BBBofC have made this fight a MANDATORY for the British title AND the Commonwealth title.
