I have long been a vocal supporter of Amir Khan, but he seems to be doing his utmost to alienate anybody who still has the belief in him to back him against his many detractors. He has now had a minimum of 2 opportunities to sign up to a World title fight and he has rejected them both. His last fight was against an opponent who was, with all due respect, completely irrelevant. His excuses … Read Article
It hasn’t taken long for Amir Khan to find his way home following Friday night’s laboured victory over Chris Algieri – and after initially appearing to concede his performance may have dented his chances of a Floyd Mayweather fight – a series of interviews with various UK media outlets appear to show the Bolton man has changed his mind.
Last night on regional news in the North-West and now in an interview with TalkSport radio, … Read Article
We all witnessed it on Friday night. Britain’s Amir Khan receiving every bit of scorecard and referee assistance possible in a ludicrously scored contest (2 cards of 117-111 were extreme) against game American Chris Algieri, who not being a noted puncher – was a man he was supposed to blow away.… Read Article
New York, June 1-Star Boxing president Joe DeGuardia says that Chris Algieri “clearly established himself as a legitimate contender” in the welterweight division in spite of the 12-round decision loss to Amir Khan last Friday night (May 29) at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.… Read Article
Amir Khan improved to 31-3 when he was awarded a unanimous decision victory against Chris Algieri this past Friday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Two of the judges (Benoit Roussel and Joseph Pasquale) scored the bout 117-111 for Khan, in a bout that seemed far more competitive than those tallies suggest. Don Ackerman’s score of 115-113 for Khan seemed much closer to the mark. With the loss Algieri’s record drops to 20-2, having … Read Article
(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) Amir Khan (31-3) unanimously outpointed Chris Algieri (20-2) on May 29 and his performance raised more questions than it answered. He won beyond any doubt but did not really dominate the slightly bigger New Yorker and came across as a fast but fragile contender with a power shortage. In fact his lackluster outing may have increased his chances of a big payday as he is obviously not a major threat to … Read Article
After his sizzling one sided performance over Frankie Gavin last night in London – both Kell Brook and his promoter Eddie Hearn have insisted once more that they are willing to face Amir Khan, yet while Hearn says pressure must be placed by the media on the Bolton man to force the fight – Brook says he isn’t going to hang around, preferring to chase other lucrative opportunities if Khan won’t step up.
At last … Read Article

(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) needed a great performance tonight to potentially earn a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but I’m not sure that we saw that with Khan’s 12 round unanimous decision victory against Chris Algieri (20-2, 8 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Khan won most of the first six rounds, but Algieri came on strong in the second half of the fight in … Read Article
A good strategy is best judged by the long-term results it delivers in any form of business, boxing is no different. A solid plan can be the difference between the maximization of a fighters talents or future theoretical discussions of what might have been.
So, when Virgil Hunter spoke at Tuesday’s final press conference ahead of tonight’s clash between his improving charge Amir Khan, 30-3 (19KO’s), and New York native Chris Algieri, 20-1 (8KO’s), we … Read Article
