Khan was rumoured to fight British rival Kell “Special K” Brook but instead is taking on the higher risk opponent in Crawford, we can expect Khan to take on Brook at a later date.
Crawford’s southpaw stance and high boxing IQ could cause trouble for Khan in the opening rounds, meanwhile Khan’s speed and movement unique and incomparable to other opponents that Crawford has faced thus far, and should be enough to keep the fight competitive for the first few rounds at least.
