As much as I don't like Khan, I would love to see him luckily beat Crawford...

Khan is very fast, but predictable jab jab jab hit ... all a good boxer has to do is wait for the right time and break his glass chin. Even a not so fast Danny Garcia did it ...

But, if he manages to beat Crawford, then it is because Crawford is just hype.

True... I don't really see Khan winning, but I hope he can throw a lucky punch to put Crawford to sleep...

While Crawford is very good and talented and was an undisputed champion and a 2-time lineal champion, I still think that he's "overhyped", if we look into the quality of opponents aspect... He only became undisputed and lineal because other champions in his time were not solid... Should he campaigned at 140 today, he'll likely lose to one of the champions... Now, he defeated the "weakest" champion for a title in Horn... And in the past years some casuals want him to fight who? The faded, washed up, past prime Pacquiao... And guess what, he's protected by TR and Arum throws weak opponents for his other defenses... Spence and the winner of Hurd-Charlo are the fighters he should fight to prove his worth...

khan's dream of fighting Crawford will never materialise because he will demand more money than crawford.
he's gonna overprice himself again like what he did when he tried to negotiate a fight with Manny Pacquiao.

In terms of popularity, I think Khan is a bigger draw... Only a few people knows who Crawford is...
