Kell Brook vs Amir Khan Odds:

Saturday night sees a huge clash taking place on Sky Sports Box Office between Sheffield's Kell Brook and Bolton's Amir Khan in a highly anticipated grudge match that has been a decade in the making. We've sent our own pugilist specialist @OddsTerrier for a look into the odds and stats and he's picked out three tips for the prizefighting action. 

Ok people, it's fight week! Time to put our neck on the chopping block and pick a winner in this hotly disputed bout. The animosity has only ramped up over the last week and we've seen a war of words on the pre-fight 'Gloves are Off' Sky Sports production. It's time for these two bitter rivals to finally put their money where their mouth is and claim those all important British boxing bragging rights. 

Right, let's dig in...

Kell Brook vs Amir Khan Tips

Fight to go the distance - NO
Odds correct as of 2022-02-16 16:20 Odds subject to change.

My first pick is on the fight not to go the distance. You will soon see a recurring theme to these selections, but as mentioned in my reaction piece when this fight was originally made, we all know this fight should have happened a long time ago now, back when these two fighters were in the pomp of their career.

Since then, they have both suffered brutal losses: Khan by 6th round clean knockouts to Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Terence 'Bud' Crawford, to follow other heavy knockouts to Danny Garcia and Breidis Prescott earlier in his career. Brook, whilst not suffering the same devastating knock outs, has had his own problems including two damaged eye sockets, sustained against 'GGG' Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr. 

Both men are also extremely ring rusty; Brook last fought 15 months ago and Khan's last fight against Billy Dib was almost three years ago. 

When we combine the lack of ring action, the punch resistance and the longevity of both's careers I think it is inevitable that this one ends before the 12 rounds are out.  The 8/13 on offer at Boylesports will be my main pick of the evening.

Boxing Odds
Kell Brook to win by KO/TKO or DSQ
Odds correct as of 2022-02-16 16:25 Odds subject to change.

As I mentioned earlier, Khan has suffered some big and heavy knockouts in his career and you have to wonder what he has left. The fact he's not fought since 2019 makes me wonder just how much he wants to fight nowadays. He is an extremely wealthy man and has a young family and his best days are certainly behind him. There have been big questions about his chin since the very early days of his career and these have only grown with each knockout. 

You could apply a lot of the above to Brook but he has shown more durability in fights and whilst he is probably easier to hit than Khan, he does possess a better set of whiskers. He also definitely wants this fight as he has proven over the years by constantly chasing it. This is personal to him. 

If you had asked me five years ago who I thought was going to win this one and I would have picked Brook every day of the week and twice on Sundays, but as time has dragged on, the gap has certainly narrowed - mainly due to Brook's mis-management. 

However, I'm gonna stick with my man and pick Brook to win by KO. He is 11/8 at William Hill to do so.

Kell Brook to be knocked down and to win by KO/TKO
Odds correct as of 2022-02-16 16:25 Odds subject to change.

My last pick is doubling down on my first two bets with a slight caveat. Paddy Power have a boosted price of 7/1 for Brook to be knocked down in the fight , then to win by TKO. I certainly can see this scenario occurring, possibly via a quick flash knockdown in the first three rounds with Khan showing his hand speed early.  Once Khan tires and Brook starts to relax and time his punches however, it will be lights out for King Khan. 

Enjoy what should be a great fight while it lasts and if you follow any of my tips, please remember to gamble responsibly.
