I'm surprised no one's made a thread about this on here.

Very surprising choice by Amir considering the tensions on both sides in the past, will be interesting to see who he fights april 21st and beyond.

I imagine that it's difficult for people to get particularly excited about this.  The fight in April will be Khan's sixth in the space of five years and nearly two years since he fought Alvarez. 

I can see why Eddie signed him as Khan is still a relatively 'big' name and he will probably still look to make the Brook fight even though it doesn't hold anywhere near the interest it once would have done.  Seems a strange choice to schedule his comeback for the same night Frampton is fighting Donaire in Belfast though.

Quite right!  I think the name Khan has most folk rolling their eyes and yawning these days!   Roll Eyes

I think Khan still have something to offer from a boxing point of view. He's only 31 and is seldom in a boring fight which rightly or wrongly has attracted a following over the years. If he can box a couple of comeback fights then a Brook fight if both keep winning builds momentum again.

If its Khan of old I think possible he would beat Brook, I think from a boxing style he troubles Kell if he fights from range and moves.
