A few months ago, WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders threw a surprise challenge in the direction of Bolton star Amir Khan.
It was a strange challenge because Khan has been inactive since May of 2016, when he was knocked out cold by Canelo Alvarez, then the WBC middleweight champion, in six rounds.
Khan had never fought beyond the 155-pound catch-weight limit for the Canelo bout.
There will very little movement in the aftermath of Saunders' callout.
Khan, who plans to return to the welterweight of 147 and has no plans to fight at 160, brushed off the challenge.
Khan has now become a contestant on the popular reality show "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!"
Saunders is very stunned by Khan's decision to join that show for a minor amount of money - instead of fighting his domestic rival, former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, for a payday worth millions.
"Listen, good luck to him," said Saunders to Sky Sports. "His biggest money fight is Kell Brook.
"If I had been him, I wouldn't have worried about going into the celebrity jungle for 100 grand or so, I would fight Kell Brook for four or five million. Clearly not, but good luck to him, whatever he decides to do."
Saunders also had some choice words for his own domestic rival, IBO super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr., who faces WBA champion George Groves in a semi-final bout in the World Boxing Super Series tournament - in the first quarter of 2018.
"I don't really care if he can win it or not," said Saunders. "He's one of them that I personally don't think he's a true super-middleweight. He holds the IBO [title], but that's nothing is it, let's face it. I hope George Groves fares well for him, because that could be a great fight."
Saunders returns to the ring on December 16, when he faces former world champion David Lemieux in Canada.
