Five areas where the battle will be decided when Crolla analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the couple

AMIR KHAN’s strict weight requirements could be the key to him ending Kell Brook’s career on Saturday night.

Former Manchester Lightweight World Champion Anthony Crolla assumed the 149lbs bout, at his local gym, could have been won on the scales Friday morning.

And he’s not sure Khan’s decided to bring his training camp to Colorado – to work with new coach Brian McIntyre and old nemesis Terence Crawford – because this career-defining battle was a step in the right direction.

The 35-year-old United fan broke down the battle for SunSport, with five key areas where the fight will be decided.

WEIGHT

It’s a very clever thing for Khan to control, with both men below the 149lb weight limit. at 148lb.

I think it could be the biggest deciding factor in the fight and it will weaken Kell.

But I was really impressed by how well Kell looked at the work of the media on Thursday.

SPECIAL BET – GET HANDS AT THE LARGE 40/1 OR BACK AT 30/1 FOR SHOW BOX

Kell has a great dietitian who told me Khan’s biggest mistake was giving Brook seven months for this fight so he could lift weights.

Kell will grow when rehydrated, I’ve seen Canelo did it when he boxed Callum Smith.

On Friday on the scale, I thought Canelo was too short to beat Callum but by the time the game started he had made Callum like his little brother.

MIND

Kell had to check his game plan because Amir played a spoiler during the build.

Khan’s tongue is sharper than Kell’s, so he shouldn’t get involved in that sort of thing.

It’s important for Kell to stick to his game plan and not get caught up.

All these big battles need a great game plan. These guys haven’t been hit on the chin in 8oz gloves so they both need to be clever.

CHINS

Khan is called ‘chinny’ but I think that’s crazy, he’s been knocked down but almost exclusively by elite boxers like Canelo and Danny Garcia.

Kell’s chin is fine but both of his eye sockets are already broken and they would be a hole and something for Khan to aim for.

POWER

Speed ​​gives you power and Khan has speed. But you can also generate a lot of energy with time, and that’s Kell’s specialty.

They are two very different types of power that both are known for and can both end a fight in the distance.

CORNER

It seems like a great move for Khan to come train with Crawford and Brian McIntyre but I think it’s a big risk.

Yes, he deserves credit for getting out of his comfort zone, training with an old competitor and weight star.

But you can only use fighters and trainers so much.

If Khan is in a crisis and has to return to his corner for advice, guidance, or salvage, the relationship will no longer know how to handle it.

In a war this vast, you need someone in your corner who knows you inside and out, who knows exactly what to say in the heat of battle, when it’s all going on at the top. That’s exactly what Kell has with Dominic Ingle.

There are two ways to look; It’s great that Khan is away from home, going to his old school. But it’s a huge risk because he has absolutely no history with the coach he’s working with, for what could be the biggest fight of his career.
