Artem Lobov and John Kavanagh have been slyly campaigning for a super-fight between The Russian Hammer and the famed boxer, Amir Khan.
The seeds for this contest were in some ways first planted in the minds of fight-fans by the iconic coach of SBG Ireland, John Kavanagh, who challenged the boxer Khan after he revealed his plans to a new string of gyms with the name Super Boxing Gym – which, of course, would hold the same initials as Straight Blast Gym.

Now, with MMA promotion BRAVE CF making waves on the sport’s circuit, they have seemingly thrown their name out there as a meeting ground for these two worlds to once again collide.
My last fight was called the event of the summer by FORBES, if you want BRAVE to make real waves in combat world I am your man!! Khan, Broner, Manny, whoever…..when I fight the world is watching!!!

Of course, Coach John Kavanagh was once again behind the idea.

It may seem outlandish but in this day and age, in a time when combat sports have been colliding at an increasingly frequent rate, who knows, perhaps Khan vs. Lobov could become a reality before long.
