Broner then Brook would make sense.

I like Khan, as a boxer, he's entertaining, he goes for it and it makes for great fights. Personally I'd like to see him beat Brook, I really don't like him and his whole "chocolate brownie" thing, drives me up the f**king wall!

I wouldn't be so sure Broner doesn't knock Khan out, doesn't take much to rock that chin

It clashes with Frampton Donaire which is a quality fight

Shame they can't organise boxing schedules properly. A shambles of a sport at times

Maidana couldn't knock him out, there's a myth that Khan is an easy KO but in reality he was just incredibly naive against Prescott, again with Garcia, who is a World Class boxer, and he did 6 rounds with Alvarez, probably weighing about a stone and a half less than him, and outboxed him until THAT punch. Brook got battered by Golovkin and had his face literally smashed up, but he's a hero, Khan actually really gave it a go and just caught out but he's got a glass chin. I don't get it.

Tyson Fury is applying for a BBBoC boxing licence today and will, he says, be fighting in April.

No chance of him being ready by April, he's still f**king huge.

Anthony Joshua to fight Joseph Parker in Cardiff on 31 March. A routine win for Joshua?

Parker's only chance, imo, is that he does the 12 rounds very comfortably

If he can keep Joshua on the move and take him into the later rounds he'll have a small chance

The best bit is the photoshop for the poster on Parker's body, makes him look toned and far better shape than he actually is

Haha yeah I noticed that. You can't help thinking that if he was actually in that condition he'd make a very good Cruiserweight.

Joshua v Parker is hardly an exciting one, the KO's dried up for the flabby Kiwi the second he got in the ring with anyone decent, and he's not a great boxer. I'm just interested to see his jaw tested.

There is part of me that wants to see Lucas Browne beat Whyte, I kind of feel sorry for the Aussie.

If that fight goes ahead Price is finished. He is absolutely terrible now, doesn't look after himself well enough, doesn't use his height and reach enough and he keeps on about being a big puncher but where were those big punches against average guys like Tony Thompson and that flabby peice of s**t, Teper? The Hammer fight was the worst, absolutely embarrassing. I can see the Povetkin fight going that way, just with Price taking far more punishment, unless his chin gives in earlier.

Tyson Fury has been cleared to resume boxing by the British Boxing Board provided he passes a medical. A fight with Anthony Joseph beckons but Fury will need a warm up fight first.

I like Martin Murray but I don't think he deserves a shot at the WBO Middleweight belt, Saunders will absolutely school him. Murray should have stayed in the Super Middleweight division.
