Amir Khan Vs Terence Crawford: Kell Brook claims Khan quit because he ‘looked for a way out’
Boxing fans everywhere are bitterly disappointed with the bizarre conclusion to Terence Crawford Vs Amir Khan in New York.
WBO welterweight champion Crawford retained his title via TKO after Khan’s corner called the fight off following a low blow from the champion to the challenger.
Fans everywhere have speculated that Khan took the easy way out and quit since he was taking quite the beating from Crawford.
It’s hard to accuse Khan of that given his previous. The Bolton-born star went down fighting with everything he had in losses to Breidis Prescott and Dannuy Garcia in the past, even hopping around the ring against the latter.
One man that has had his say on the matter is eternal domestic rival Kell Brook.
“I thought he quit. He had five minutes. He just looked for a way out, he were getting beat in every department. He will wanna fight me now, he’s got nowhere to go,” Brook told AB Boxing News.
Brook might be right with his final sentiment. It’d hard to buy Khan in another top-level fight and many might argue that a bout between Brook and Khan doesn’t hold the lustre it used to. That would have sold out a stadium at one point.
Khan has said he will go away and spend time with his family before deciding his next move.
