Khan would be a dangerous foe for Kell, says Curtis

CURTIS Woodhouse - the former Sheffield United player turned boxer - believes Blades-mad Kell Brook might be in trouble if he ever got his wish to fight Amir Khan.

Grenoside’s Brook has a healthy dislike of Khan and would love to box him in what would be a domestic money-spinner.

Woodhouse tweeted this week that “Khan isn’t built to fight - he is an out and out boxer, if he boxes and moves for a full 12 rounds he could lick anybody.” Asked if that would include welterweight Brook - whose ankle injury has delayed January’s world title fight with Devon Alexander, he replied: “If he stood and fought Kell, he would get battered, if he boxed and moved it’s a tough fight for Kell.”

Meanwhile, Khan admits old sparring partner Manny Pacquiao’s KO last weekend gave him food for thought as he prepares to meet Carlos Molina tomorrow.

The Brit takes on undefeated Molina in LA desperate to put on a performance after two defeats.

His American counterpart is a huge underdog.

But Khan is wary of underestimating him, especially after his old friend Pacquiao was rendered unconscious by Juan Manuel Marquez. “(Molina) is the underdog but I never treat anyone as an underdog” Khan said.

“Look at Pacquiao against Juan Manuel Marquez and Andre Berto against Robert Guerrero.

“Boxing’s the best sport because you just don’t know what your opponent is going to bring to the table. I got caught with a shot against Garcia.

“Look at how Pacquiao got caught by a guy he should have beaten. One punch can change a fight.”
