Amir khan does not think it makes sense to fight against Conor benn, unless there is some world title at stake and you walk away from the words of Eddie hearn who was already flirting with a confrontation between the two British boxers.
“Conor, very well done. Very good boy, I wish him the best ”, he wrote Khan on Twitter. “At his age he was already a world champion. Maybe if he had a belt, that fight would have a reason for being, but he still has a long way to go ”.
Conor well done. Great kid, wish him the best.
At his age I was a world champ.
Maybe if he had some belts that fight would make sense but he’s got a long way to go yet 👊🏽 😝
