WILL KHAN ANTE UP FOR BIG WEMBLEY STADIUM FIGHT OR WILL HE DUCK BROOK?
By Ben Dean

Kell Brook served notice over the weekend that he was indeed back and suffering no ill-effects from the leg that was injured in a stabbing attack this past fall.  After Brook's four-round destruction of Jo Jo Dan a few things came clearly into view.  Most apparent among them?  That Kell Brook vs. Amir Khan, both British residents, is one of the biggest fights to be made in boxing. Recently, I went on record as stating that Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward (if Ward moves up) was one of the biggest fights to be made in boxing behind Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao (which is already set for May 2nd).  Along with a potential Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Miguel Cotto bout, it's likely a top-three prize fight in the current boxing landscape.  But now we can add a fourth fight to that list: Khan vs. Brook. UPDATE: According to Sky Sports, Khan says he is willing to fight Brook in the next twelve months, but not next. Sky Sports lists four fighters as Khan's potential next opponent: Adrien Broner, Keith Thurman, Chris Algieri and Miguel Cotto.

 MMA STILL ILLEGAL IN NEW YORK ACCORDING TO LATEST COURT RULING
By Scott Shaffer

A federal court in New York has ruled against the largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter in the country, holding that UFC and its owner, Zuffa LLC are not yet in a position to challenge New York's ban on MMA. As a result, MMA remains illegal in New York. In 1997, New York enacted a ban on professional MMA. After the sport grew into the mainstream, the UFC, plus a group of fighters, trainers, gym owners and fans that it put together, filed a federal lawsuit in 2011 challenging the constitutionality of the ban. The case had been dismissed piece by piece in prior opinions, but in a ruling issued today, Judge Kimba Wood terminated the entire case by granting summary judgment in New York's favor.

Michel Mothmora TKO6 Baker Barakat... Frenchman Michel Mothmora (27-23) recorded a sixth-round stoppage of Germany’s Baker Barakat (41-18-4) in a middleweight contest held in Loiret, France on Friday. Barakat came out looking for a knockout from the first bell, and Mothmora had to be active to prevent the visitor from taking control of the fight.

But in the sixth round, Mothmora clearly looked the strongest of the two and overwhelmed Barakat with a flurry of punches that sagged him on the ropes and prompted referee Christophe Hembert to correctly wave the fight off at 2:25 of the round. source: wbf
