Khan is only kidding himself if he thinks can reclimb to the summit, he can hardly climb off of the canvas…

khan doesn’t seem to be able to change his reckless, charge in style. Khan is a power puncher’s dream.

Prescott is OLD news, If Donaire wants to make a point he would need to defeat the streaking Garcia… Prescott has booked too many losses in the interim that would be a serious step backwards for Khan…

Amir will be very reluctant to front Prescott again,he wouldn’t dare take the chance….If he got offed again it would be goodnight nurse hello small halls…….

In one word NO! Amir has no identity. What is he a boxer, slugger, counter puncher ? He doesnt know. Since his first KO, he has been looking to find himself. If you look carefully he is always trying to be someone else depending on his coach. When he was with Roach you saw him trying to fight like Pacman, now look carefully he was trying to fight like Andre Ward. This will have initial success, then he will fight a top contender and LOSE, WHY? HE IS NOT WARD

the mad scientist I think deep down a lot of would like him back in the mix its just that if he does he will eventually get kayo’d again and back to square one, he’s got a good attitude its a shame he don’t have the chin to match or the technical skill to protect it.

right on T bag.

FREAK, khans speed makes me laugh because he still gets cracked on the chin and goes down faster than a bangladeshi rent boy.

The ?

Khans speed makes me JIZZ in my pants

Khan fought a slow midget with no pedigree or power at all and even that guy hit Khan no less than 10 times with the type of left hooks and straight rights that would have shattered Khans chin if he had even a little bit of powe. Garcia must have been licking his lips watching Khan in there be a sucker for his signature punches yet again. Garcia KO’s Khan 10 times out of 10. Khan has speed and a good offensive variety that’s it, the guy has no ring IQ at all and he’s got 1 way to fight, he’s done vs the good fighters that have pop now.

Garcia is far more superior technically!!! You’re crazy man. Khan has great speed and I think you’re confusin speed fopr technicaql ability. He literally has no ability to think in the ring and adapt, he’s a very poor skilled fighter with amazing hand speed.

NO!

No, he doesn’t have the chin to compete at the world class any longer.

Golden boy would be doing good to get Khan not so big punchers,Peterson again maybe Bradley ..will do good against those 2 the latter a bit wiser but less a puncher than peterson..anybody with profile who could not break a egg is the way to go..STILL CAN NOT BELEAVE MAIDANA DID NOT HO HIM haha

Patrick2…Good comments agreed with what you said.Ofcourse there are ? about Khan and only time will tell.But if Khan stays smart inside the ring and learns and corrects his flaws well who knows what could happen…and he still is young.

te tumbo

Absolutely. Khan has always possessed the talent but not the maturity or complete set of skills to complement his abundant talent. I don’t believe he lost v. Peterson and there’s no shame in losing to Garcia only in the manner that Khan lost, which was to underestimate Garcia and attempt to brush him off as a mere opponent. otherwise, his brawl v. Maidana was a great fight. flaws and all. i think Virgil Hunter will be able to continue polishing Khan’s talent and developing the fundamentals that can help Khan avoid unnecessary brawls and slugfests. in fact, now might be a good time to track down Prescott and give him his overdue rematch. that is a B-level opponent that an improved Khan should be able to easily defeat. IMO, Khan is too good to lose to the likes of Prescott twice. the same may be true v. Garcia(?) BUT that’s why it’s important to confirm the actual matchups to find out for sure.

PEEJ

He will be able to win some fights but he will definitely lose in the major ones. He still gets hit with that left hook. The one thing Khan did improve on was him not running around the whole dang ring. He would just walk to the side instead of hoping around the whole ring

Yes, the opponent that Khan not only ran from but actually sprinted from. Keep it in mind that the nonsense posted about Amir can be shown false by a viewing of his fight with Lamont Peterson. It’s on Youtube. Watch it; it’s ugly. By the way, I’d love to see Manny fight Amir. In fact, I’ve even got the tag line for promoting the fight: Pacquiao vs. Khan – The glass jaw clinic.

Donaire is a Douche

Yes, he can. Khan is a throw back to old school. He goes to anybody’s back yard and he’s taken on anybody willing to fight him. Who cares if he got KTFO, it’s not like he did the Pinoy Plank like Pacquiao. Khan got up. Pacquiao went to sleep.

You mean against the “juiced up” Lamont Peterson?

Posted December 16, 2012 8:37 pm

Amir could hold clinics on how to hold, clinch, or grab an opponent. We haven’t forgotten Amir’s performance against Lamont Peterson, have we?

If you can’t control your emotions in front on a couple of people watching you spar how can you hope to control your emotions in front of ten thousand for the real deal. I’m neither for or against open sparring, but I don’t think the benefit is what the author states.

Thanks for the correction, 1-2. The boxing public at large I think has been tough on Kahn. The guy has faced some of the toughest in the division, and FOUGHT them (he never ran). He’s won a few of these tough fights, he’s lost a few, but he’s never been afraid to go out on his sword. What more can we fans want from a fighter? And for that I love to watch Kahn fight.

Havoc

He can try….we will see…I still think he got a weak chin and can easily Knock down… And this is a big problem if he wants to be at the top.

I though Khan fought a good fight last night but he got hit way to much and may have been in trouble if Molina had, had any power at all. I route for Khan because I love offensive guys but I believe there’s another knock out in his future. I do however think he’ll beat Garcia next time. Garcia is vastly overrated and given way to much credit.

with all the belts around . and if khann picks up his defense and avoids the big bangers he can gain a belt but you just dont know when his suspect chin will show up again .it wont be easy but a big puncher sooner or latter will find it again

Posted December 16, 2012 7:46 pm 


frank

I dont think khan has a glass chin I know he been koed twice Id call it a suspect chin which he must protect better he a action fighter with a suspect chin whats wrong with that as a boxing fan/

Posted December 16, 2012 7:40 pm 


Patrick2

That was good win for Kahn. He needed an easier fight to restore his confidence, and use what he’s learned from Hill. If he continues to fight smart — use his speed — and keep himself out of gunfights I have no doubt he can pick up a belt, or maybe two. Lastly, love him or hate him, Kahn is an exciting fighter to watch.
