    1/9 Khan 11/2 mcMclumsy.
     
    Khan Prescotts the match up they want to see. lol
     
    I would be surprised if the odds on a Prescot rematch were not a fair bit shorter than those on this fight regarding Prescot.

    Yes it is and I haven't a problem with it.
     
    It's far from..... 'the fight the British public want to see' though, as I'd put my house on it that 95% of the British public have never even heard of Paul McCloskey

    I'd guess 95%+ of them haven't heard of McCloskey...

    Pointless fight imo. Prescott would of been much better but I don't think he was ever considered.

    I fail to see how fighting McCloskey will be any kind of warm up for Bradley.

    Bradley will imo, pose many problems for Khan

    It will be interesting to see if Khan has any problems with mcCloskey being a southpaw and reasonably tall?

    I can see it being stopped in the early rounds after Khan lands 3 or 4 unaswered punches or maybe mcCloskey fails to throw anything back for more than 5 seconds,lol.

    When it comes to being disliked within the sport and in the wider World Khan is a true champion. Odd that you use the word 'hate'.

    I think to be fair to khan, fighting an unbeaten european champ for a warm up fight isnt really all that bad to be honest.
     
    I think paul was the best out of the bad bunch of names that were floating about, apart from prescott but khans obviously scared of him.

    Mccloskey needs to start guarding the old chin or he's getting k'o'd , wont get away with that with amir.
