LAST TIME MAIDANA WAS JUST FLOORED BY KHAN BUT THIS TIME HE’LL DIEPosted June 29, 2013 12:25 am
I agree, Maidana will chase and catch Khan then TKO him. Maidana needs to work more on head movement but you gotta love the guy, he just keeps coming. He punches hard too.Posted June 14, 2013 7:12 pm
Maidana will KO Khan again….. Khan has degenerated as a prize fighterPosted June 14, 2013 5:31 pm
This would be a fun action fight but possible death knell for Khan who is not improving whereas Maidana is a bit better technically and we know he can punch… Khan losing again would end his name period…Posted June 13, 2013 8:28 pm
I would like to see the match, i have Madaina by koPosted June 13, 2013 5:48 pm
Likewise bustajay…it’s always good to chew the fat fella, you take it easy mate.Posted June 13, 2013 3:50 pm
LimeyJay, You are a cool brother….cheers and tea for you. Enjoyed the conversation. Well I am off to drink a shake and get my chin on hard….LOLPosted June 13, 2013 2:24 pm
Limey jay.. “I,m off now for one of my ” shakes” that make me see round corners..” :) Got the funk!Posted June 13, 2013 11:52 am
Limey jay: You’re holding your end up well here mate and don’t let these others drag you down. IMO every word your saying is bang-on and I couldn’t agree more. I sort of do and don’t like Khan. When I watch him I find myself waiting for him to get KO’d and opposed to doing the KO’ing if that makes sense?!?! He’s fun to watch, makes big fights but isn’t ever gonna be in pound 4 pound contention. Good day to you sir!!!Posted June 13, 2013 11:42 am

Don’t flatter yourself asshat…Posted June 13, 2013 10:53 am
I not saying Khan has a good chin but Danny Garcia showed Khan has a weak neck. The KO punch Garcia threw hit Khan in the neck not Chin.Posted June 13, 2013 10:12 am
Like has been said, Khan beats Maidana again it will be so what, he beat Maidana years back when Maidana was better than he is now.Posted June 13, 2013 10:01 am
Wtf happened there, I posted……and nothing showed, so I posted again, a shorter post this time, then 10 minutes after, my first post pops up…….weird.Posted June 13, 2013 9:47 am
LIMEYJAY you sound like an English professor of boxing…..where do you live?Posted June 13, 2013 8:54 am
Khan only fought Maidana the first time ’cause he was gonna have his title stripped.
A lot of people would want to see Khan-Maidana II, everybody except GBP and Khan’s handlers.Posted June 13, 2013 8:40 am
LOL the fact that Maidana couldn’t put Khan down, not even once despite that beautiful hook on 10th, and the fact that Khan was not only able to hurt Maidana but also put him down in 1st round sums up the story of that fight. If they fought again would the result be different? Maybe, but that remain so be seen.Posted June 13, 2013 8:31 am
Mjames….do you really believe that there is a ” shake ” you can take that improves your punch resistance?
Khan will make Devon Alexander a low-ball offer to fight in Dubai in December, knowing Devon will reject it. Khan will then act like Devon is avoiding him. Khan will then avoid everyone else in the 140lbs and 147lbs division and try to sneak into a Mayweather match in May 2014. All Khan is interested in doing is getting the quickest, easiest route to a big Mayweather payday. He loses he has no chance, he knows he will get destroyed by Floyd. he doesn’t care. he just wants the massive payday. It’s absurd that anyone is taking Khan seriously as a potential opponent for Floyd. No way does Amir deserve a shot against one of the modern great like Mayweather. If Khan is gifted a payday fight against Floyd, he will retire immediately afterwards. For Khan right now, it’s all about taking the money and sailing off into the sunset.Posted June 13, 2013 7:09 am

Maidana vs Khan II ill never happen Khan wants no part of this guy.
Khan was taking Alex Ariza’s “special shakes” leading up to their first match, that’s how he survived the punishment and stayed upright. I’m not saying it was steroids, but I think one of the Mayweathers is online claiming Khan was juiced up by Ariza for the Maidana fight. So let’s just call them “special shakes” for the record and assume Amir was clean. But without Ariza’s “supplements”, Khan has been getting decked and stopped. If the Khan-Maidana rematch happens, Khan will get smashed to bits. Without Ariza’s “super juice”, Khan is not the same fighter.Posted June 13, 2013 6:51 am
Limey Jay its Khans gob that people dont really like, he’s an exiting world class fighter imo, then he opens his mouth and talks real bol*ocks and its usually in front of a camera,in real life he is meant to be a real nice fella,has time for anyone but his media face is an annoying one and gets up folks noses,that’s peoples problem with Khan.Posted June 13, 2013 4:26 am
*remember too guys that when khan beat el chino there was a lot of ped talk surrounding Alex Ariza, khans fitness coach at that time, how was he able to chew those bombs when lesser shots had KO’d him previously,just saying.Posted June 13, 2013 4:21 am
The post below was Ernie Enema Slurper again.Posted June 12, 2013 11:24 pm
Khan didn’t box Garcia’s head off… Danny was getting hit, but not flush with anything.. He landed the harder punches and he wanted Khan to punch.. He was seeing the openings better and better with each round.. Just like his 2nd fight with Morales. Danny caught Erik with a perfect counter left hook after drawing a jab from him… slip – BOOM! fight over.
Judah exposed a weakness in Garcia’s game.. He lacks a versatile jab.. It’s a perfuctory jab, that is useless against a slick southpaw.. Canelo popped some nice jabs on southpaw Trout.. He has a pretty fair one for a 22 year old.Posted June 12, 2013 10:19 pm
LimeyJay I like the way you talk. Where are you from? Anyway….Yes Khan won the fight But, the big butt of the ref did stop some momentum from Marco. Anyway, Khan has always took on risky fights and it best for him to grab one or two big pay days and call it retiring with youth and cash. A second fight at 147 would crush him with Marcos based on new foundation of boxing skills from Maidana yet he still has the beast and warrior that makes him Maddog Marco that we as fans love to see box.
Kahn still has speed and great footwork but Marcos has more heart and a kiss from old Satan stained in his eyes for the love of blood.
Night night mate.Posted June 12, 2013 9:51 pm
Limey Jay… The reason he gets a hard time, mate, is because he’s a runner, in the ring and out if it. He had the ‘easy’ route letting the other four fight it out, just to step in as the contender to face the winner. Then as soon as it becomes clear that he will have his career finished, his matchmakers take another route. There’s only one route for Amir Khan, the coward’s way out. Go get him Lucas…….Posted June 12, 2013 9:11 pm
Tark..you are right he took a beating, that tenth round was brutal.
I picked khan in their first fight but this time around I think maidana will get himPosted June 12, 2013 8:10 pm
If Khan was vastly improved it would make sense, to test his progress he could use Maidana as a measuring stick…
Sort of like Seth Mitchell is doing by going back in with Jonathan Banks.. Mitchell got knocked out in only 2 rounds, and was in trouble almost from the get-go.. It wasn’t a one punch KO Seth suffered, or any kind of a fluke … but a flat out clobbering where he was taken to the cleaners by an experienced veteran who’s been in there with world champion boxers.
So… If these 2 guys haven’t made much progress, and I say Khan hasn’t much if any — but I will have to wait to see how Mitchell performs to see how well he addressed his weaknesses — then going back in for another ass beating is the dumbest thing possible. And Khan DID take a very bad beating regardless if he won.Posted June 12, 2013 7:51 pm
Busta….I hear him loud and clear mate, it’s you that don’t understand….khan ate 19 unanswered punches from maidana in the tenth, his head was flying about, he fell into the ropes and was nearly out on his feet, that’s what I saw……I didn,t choose to see Cortez acting as a human shield, t, cos it didn,t happen…..maidana hit khan with shots that finished 27 of the guys he had faced up till then, khan somehow survived….with his dodgy chin, and now there is a conspiracy, the ref won the fight for khan…..maidana knows that he missed the boat, he had two more rounds to get the knockout but couldn,t….u say because the ref protected khan.
Khan should go back to school. Take spelling lessons. He needs to learn how to spell … C … H … I … N …Posted June 12, 2013 7:35 pm
For me khan won the first fight….yeah it was close, but khan boxed better….of course maidana hurt khan plenty, but khan managed to ride the storm …..the judges all agreed , as did the majority of people on this site in the days following the fight.
LimaJay you are missing what TARK is saying….how could Marcos finish Khan when the ref has his nose all up in the action and forcing breaks? I guess Marcos Maidana should have KO the ref then knocked the broken glass off Khan chin.Posted June 12, 2013 7:30 pm

Khan is Gahn. Done. Finished. No good anymore and way over rated from day 1.Posted June 12, 2013 7:14 pm
Doesn’t make sense for Khan. He won so there’s no upside to doing it again, only downside.Posted June 12, 2013 7:02 pm
Khan should not go to 147, he can barley take the punches of a lightweight, I thought Maidana won the first fight,and has shown huge improvement since they fought, I say Maidana blast Khan out in brutal fashion with in 4 rds-PEACEPosted June 12, 2013 6:59 pm
srminimmo, you took the thought right off my mind: Maidana/Guerrero. I’d pick Maidana to win too.Posted June 12, 2013 6:58 pm
“I get that people don’t like khan ” I like Khan just fine Limey Jay. But Maidana beat Khan. Only Ref Cortez saved him.Posted June 12, 2013 6:54 pm
“Any other referee and that fight ends with Khan being stopped. ” I scored Maidana winning the fight nonetheless. In any case, I’m very glad Ref Cortez is retired. He was a pathetic ref for the last two years of his career.Posted June 12, 2013 6:53 pm
Khan had Maidana down early in that Fight but had no finishing SKILLS. He escaped with a WIN though SO the Fight makes more sense for Maidana than Khan. IF Khan can take Maidana instead of Alexander though then that would be a smart move. Maidana is LESSER than Alexander.Posted June 12, 2013 6:01 pm
Tark buddy….I don’t buy it mate, maidana was beat, he couldn,t get khan out of there in the tenth, khan got on his bike in the eleventh, and came back stronger in the twelfth round, catching Marcos with a decent combo……truth is he won the fight, did the ref help him ?
I would not mind seeing Maidana-Guerrero. Neither of this guys are really elite fighters, but Maidana has elite power, Guerrero an elite chin and they both are very game.Posted June 12, 2013 5:36 pm
Khan is a blemish on Maidana’s record that Maidana should address at his own discretion. Maidana is coming up so he would be doing a favor for Khan by giving him the opportunity to re-establish his own creds for contention. nonetheless, it would be a nice payday for Maidana and besides i’m not certain that he would prevail in a rematch, which means nothing because Maidana specializes as the upsetting underdog. he is quite frankly defying logic and circumstance with his stirring comebacks. Maidana, Mathysse, and Guerrero are the competitive bracket immediately below Mayweather who stands alone.Posted June 12, 2013 4:51 pm
Limey jay… You have know Cortez was saving Khan’s tail.. He broke those “clinches” up when they weren’t really clinches.. Cortez interfered a ton and Maidana was fighting both Cortez and Khan.. It was the opposite of the Khan-Peterson fight where Joe Cooper was helping Peterson win.. Pushing IS a foul … but how often does any referee call a boxer for pushing and take a point? It’s ludicrous.
I thought Khan would look vastly improved in these last 2 fights under Virgil Hunter — but so far I haven’t seen a ripple of improvement in his defense or clinching skills … He’s a smart kid so I don’t get it.Posted June 12, 2013 4:25 pm
Khan is done. Maidana is exploding. To hell with Khan.Posted June 12, 2013 4:14 pm
Doesn’t make sense for both.. Maidana’s stock is on the rise and Kahn’s is dropping. At the same time this would be high risk low reward for Kahn. Kahn’s camp is looking to cash in before it’s too late in my opinion…Posted June 12, 2013 3:55 pm
Maidana was on his way to a victory???
He had 12 round! How many do you think he needed? 14? 17?Posted June 12, 2013 3:44 pm
the real winners would be us by seeing another great fight,who cares if it makes sense to them,it makes sense to us,the fans, the ones that pay their wages.Posted June 12, 2013 3:32 pm
RK, I think the fight would erase the ugly bump on Marcos record as we all know he had Khan praying for a savior and it just happened to be the ref that night.Posted June 12, 2013 3:24 pm
TARK you nailed it brother. His ass was SAVEDPosted June 12, 2013 3:22 pm
The fight doesn’t make sense for Maidana. Khan is on the verge of dropping out of contention in this – or any – division. Maidana has clawed his way right back. If he rematches Khan and wins, it proves very little. If he loses, then Maidana’s found his glass ceiling, and a pretty low glass ceiling at that.Posted June 12, 2013 3:18 pm
ANYBODY who thinks Virgil Hunter would match Khan with Maidana is living in Zu Zu Land… Maidana took 30 fights off of Khan’s chin… That boy was smokin’ … Only Joe Cortez saved Amir’s ass.. Cortez broke “clinches” when Maidana clearly had an arm free to punch. Any other referee and that fight ends with Khan being stopped.
As it is Freddie Roach said, “I was a hair’s breadth from stopping it a couple times.”Posted June 12, 2013 3:02 pm
HA! I posted this exact question a few days back. We all know Maidana was on his way to victory and now with his feet planted firmly at 147 Khan would have no chance at all this time.
Khan is too scared and yet clever enough to know he has nothing to gain and everything to lose with a second fight. If he wants to revenge his own losses then give the Bulldog his chance as well.Posted June 12, 2013 2:55 pm
Actually it would make sense. Maidana has a chance to avenge his defeat and Khan has something to prove. I will take maidana by stoppage thoughPosted June 12, 2013 2:29 pm
It’s Me, Ernie
Maidana reminds me of a small Tommy Hearns type as far as someone’s getting knocked out tonight, a fan pleaser. Khan is fun to watch with his rendition of Soul Train every time he gets hit. He is a modern day Augie Sanchez…Posted June 12, 2013 2:01 pm
