Khan: Brook Has Confidence Issues, Won't Face Porter

AMIR KHAN insists he will be back in the ring this year - even if he does not get his long-awaited showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jnr.

Khan was originally the frontrunner to take on the American superstar, only for Marcos Maidana to get the last minute nod.

The decision annoyed the Bolton boxer, and he took his frustration out on Luis Collazo in his welterweight debut at the weekend.

Mayweather clinched a points decision against Maidana on the same bill, and he could be tempted into a re-match as he defends his 46-fight winning streak.

But even if Khan misses out again, the 27-year-old is certain he will fight again in November or December.

Alternative opponents include the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Juan Manuel Marquez, Tim Bradley or even Sheffield's Kell Brook, if his proposed clash with IBF champion Shawn Porter does not materialise.

"I definitely want to fight again this year as I'm not having a year off again," Khan said.

"I would like to go straight into a world title fight, but it is all about who is around.

"Things change quickly in boxing, because who would have said Devon Alexander would lose his world title?

"It's going to have to be someone decent to keep me where I am, at the top. I could fight the winner of Brook v Porter, but I don't think it will happen.

"I don't think Brook will take that fight as it is too tough for him.

"Brook has a lot of confidence issues and he won't take that fight.

"If he wins I'd be happy as you have to back the British guy, but I have lots of doubts that it will ever go ahead.

"I'd rather fight at home in Britain later this year but it just depends on what show it is. It has to be a big one."

Khan left Las Vegas 1m richer but peeing blood from a Collazo low blow.

"He caught me right down there and I was in real pain but when I went to the canvas I thought the crowd would start booing me if I stayed there the full five minutes," Khan added.

"I looked over at my trainer Virgil Hunter and he said 'What are you doing? Stay down.'

"I think Collazo was just frustrated and knew he was losing the fight.

"The low shot caused me to pee blood. I was fine at first, then I felt sick in my stomach. It was ridiculously low.

"This is a tough game and it's not easy, so sometimes you have to rough your opponent up and I did that just as much as he did.

"That's the way boxing has gone now as it used to be throw punches and keep it clean, whereas now it is all about physical strength and bossing your opponent, sometimes using dirty tactics. I have to do it as well and fight fire with fire.

"You have got to hit back, otherwise you get physically dominated. I never used to do that, but times have changed."

[QUOTE=LWO]Khan vs Brook would be HUGE in the UK. Those 2 should fight with the winner getting Porter.[/QUOTE] Why would Brook have to fight Khan to get a shot at Porter? You realize Brook is mando for Porters strap and the fight has already gone to purse bids? Porter has to fight Brook,...

[QUOTE=BrokenHat]Lol, you're retarded and bitter. I get it. Khan embarrassed you with your predictions. So every fighter can use rough tactics, and the first time Khan does this in his fights, like virtually every single champion, Andre Ward, it's a problem? Idiotic. Try harder. But then ...

[QUOTE=Tonyu]Hey Buddy I agree Khan will be stopped again as soon as he fights an opponent with power - Collazo a tough opponent is not a big puncher he selfs admits that. This Flatline character is dillusional he says Khan beat Maidana easier than Mayweather has he even seen the fight or just se...

[QUOTE=Tonyu]It never amazes me how Khan fans try and build him up - I am not surprised anymore yes Collazo is good opponent to have a win on your record but please analyse the fight and not the result.[/QUOTE] Jesus christ Tonyu, you cannot actually be this daft? Anyone with a brain knows ...
