Amir Khan has decided a chance to create a legacy is far more important than to appease Kell Brook's begging for a payday.

Crawford vs Khan at MSG on April 20.

Brook has wasted his entire career stalking Khan and it's quite fitting Khan played him for a fool. Brook should grow a pair and fight Hurd. Get badly beaten and slink off into retirement

Or

Khan has decided to duck Brook once again and take on a fighter that noone will be fussed about if he loses.

Seriously this is why people stay away, this crap just puts everyone off. How about

Amir Khan has once again opted to fight opposition other than Kell Brook, whilst Khan should be applauded for taking on the highly dangerous Terence Crawford Brook is once again left on the sidelines wondering what he has to do to get this fight made. Unfortunately with a lack lustre showing last time out Brook is now Khan to Amir's Floyd and is constantly chasing a fight that the other does not seem to want (despite protestations to the other).
A cracking fight for Khan though and should he overcome he will catapult himself back up the ratings and back into legacy defining fights. Brook whilst obviously miffed at this should look at Khan and do the same creating a situation wherein he can't be ignored.

Neither has come off looking good when dealing with each other but it can't be denied they have both had very hard fights and done well against good if not great opponents.

Khan fought all time great and the heavier Canelo and got knocked out (predictably).
Brook moved up in weight to fight the great GGG and had his eye socket broken.

Both fighters are incredibly brave.  There is no way they are avoiding each other for fear of being knocked out.  It is clearly something personal that is preventing them from fighting each other (presumably something to do with money splits in a potential fight, venue, having to work together to promote the fight).

What's Brook done to earn a retirement payday from Khan? In Brook's 13 year career he's fought THREE name fighters - Porter, GGG and Spence Jr. Brook got a debatable win over Porter and then refused a rematch. GGG and Spence Jr absolutely destroyed him.

When Brook held the IBF belt there was an easy unification bout with a weak WBO champion Jessie Vargas. Just as the deal was set, Hearn/Brook decided they didn't want it. Brook was happy fighting bums like Dan, Bizier and the second best win of his mediocre career Gavin.

Now Brook's been exposed as nothing more than a hype job, he's under the impression he deserves an easy payday so he can stroll off into retirement.

What happened to the nonsense about being a beast at 154 and cleaning out the division. Oh yeah it was cheap talk from Brook. Unified champion Jarrett Hurd and WBC champion Tony Harrison have both said they'll fight Brook in England, yet Brook's suddenly gone quiet.

The casuals on this board clearly don't understand what 'ducking' means. Khan has taken a more difficult fight for a world title. That's not 'ducking' it's called trying to be great. Maybe Brook should grow a pair and try it.

Khan deserves 80/20 split

No Nathan, your clearly not even a casual if you think Brook who took GGG's best punches and was still going is scared of pitty patty Khan. Whilst Brooks early career is padded (pretty much like every boxer these days) there's no doubting he's taken the hardest fight in GGG when every man and his dog was saying every man and his dog was avoiding him.

No debate about the win, was a close decision that Brook deserved.

Khan on the other hand has also had a good career, a freak knockout by Prescott derailed him for a bit and then opponents were clearly chosen to show the best of him (as i said it's done to all fighters now so other than my normal, no complaint from me) whilst still having his doubters he had an absolute barnstormer with Maidana and then despite everyone wanting it refused the rematch which led to Mayweather ignoring him and taking on the more dangerous Maidana (in his eyes). Whilst the Peterson rematch wasn't Khan's fault, the fact he got beat in the first place was. No rematch with Garcia left a massive question mark on his actual skill (and again Khan shown his lack of Nous as Garcia was looking for the punch from the first bell).
Kudos again goes to Khan for taking on Canelo but everyone with half a brain knew it was only going to take one punch to take him out and that's what happened. More shouting about Mayweather before (and admittedly hilarious) stint in the jungle and Khan has come out and done, well nothing. Carefully selected opponents again until Brook raised his head and Khan spouted off and then nothing, no fight, no negotiations just a waste of everyones time (like him ftrying to secure a mayweather fight).

Kudos again to Khan for taking a hard fight but don't be spouting about beating Brook easily and then ignore it, makes you look a bit of an herbert.

Khan and Brook are probably about on a par with pulling in the punters so no reason for a nearly 50/50 split (with Khan taking the slight majority) BUT if either fighter thinks it's an easy fight, why not 35/35 with the winner getting the rest

Brook gets no credit for fighting GGG. GGG badly hurt Brook in the first, he merely eased up so fans got to see more of him. Brook's little slapping punches did absolutely nothing to GGG.

Brook has proven time and again he's a fraud and a bum. Should Khan feel sorry for him, Brook deserves only 20% split and that's generous

What a dud fight Crawford against Khan all Bob’s been doing the last few weeks is talking up Khan’s chances dear oh dear oh dear.. Amir happy to be used just like in his Canelo fight he’ll feel important for one more night might even start believing he has a chance if Bob keeps blowing enough smoke ppv in America too what a joke it was to much fanfare that Terence was moving up to challenge Spence what A joke
