Khan: If Brook Beats Porter, He Lands in The Big Time

By Edward Chaykovsky

Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) will be an interested observer during next Saturday's fight between undefeated welterweight contender Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs) and IBF champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs). The fight is happening on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Brook has chased after Khan for several years. If he defeats Porter, Khan is ready to face him in a major all-British event. While Khan respects Brook's decision to travel to the United States to fight Porter, he also wonders if his countryman is ready for such a challenge based on his past competition.

“I respect that a lot. Not many fighters would go away from home against Porter and, if Kell wins, it would put him straight in the big time. It would then definitely make sense for me and Kell to fight. We saw what Froch and Groves did at Wembley with 80,000 fans. We can also do that. But it’s a big step up against Porter. Is he ready? He’s been fighting C-class guys and now he’s in with an A-class fighter," Khan told The Guardian.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14831752]It's every man for himself. It's not Amir Khan or anyone else's duty to make Thurman relevant.[/QUOTE] But what do you think Thurman should do to become relevant?

[QUOTE=Mr. Punch-Out!!;14831724]So now suddenly you care about what are bigger fights for fighters? Why don't you care about this when it comes to Thurman?[/QUOTE] It's every man for himself. It's not Amir Khan or anyone else's duty to make Thurman…
