Exiled Yank

They should drop him from the WW ranks completely,,,, considering he’s not a WW! The WBC is such a mess, but hey, they make more sense than the WBA. That’s a scary thought.

Its time for Khan to start thinking about a job. Seriously!

My list of opponents for Khan through 2015 would be: Dierry Jean.. Cleotis Pendarvis.. Roberto Ortiz.. Andre Berto.. Paul Spadafora.. and Zab Judah … It’s going to take him longer than that to round out his game at the rate he’s going.

i’d be surprised to learn that any fight-fan deferred to the rankings of sanctioning bodies(?). if i Must align my opinions with a list of independent rankings, i will defer to the Ring’s P4P rankings, which are generally accurate with some glaring exceptions, e.g., Pacquiao* was NEVER a top-5 P4P fighter superior to the likes of Mayweather, Marquez, Ward, or Martinez.

I wonder if I’ve been dropped from the WBC Jr. MW rankings. I last fought in 1987 at FW, but now, 26 years later, I’m at 156 pounds. I can lose these extra 2 pounds for a shot at Canelo! Lol, the WBC is a joke!

@Hidalgo…. You break 6 hours into three 2-hour sessions. And you use your imagination to make it interesting. Use a lot of thought and discussion and frequent breaks, instead of boring intensity. It’s always super exciting for a boxer when he sees improvements in his skills, so a chief trainer uses the brain God gave him to develop creative and objective measures for graphically showing improvements.. One method is to have an assistant trainer record sparring sessions and immediately go over the videos for 10 or 15 minutes, “You’re still doing this…see?” or “See…you’re not doing that anymore. You’re grabbing him more correctly in the last couple weeks.” or “See how you’re defending his left hooks as compared to 2 months ago?” … “Yeah, I can see.. None of them are scoring. Run that back and let me see that again. HA HA!”

It’s not just that he does not know how to hold, and that he has a weak chin, it is his whole style. With all of his movement and in and out motion he always steps out with his chin up and his hands down. His opponents just wait a few rounds for him to slow down a little and eventually he gets caught. He does have athletic ability and is tall and fast and that is what has allowed him to get this far, but he is too flawed to ever be elite. I don’t see anyway he could ever change his style.

Hookoffthejab, a very nice video, I applaud you on that, but Juan Manuel Marquez is so full of CRAP! He’s the biggest whiner and complainer ever in the history of boxing. Never does he ever give The great Manny Pacquiao any credit. They made this video for one reason and one reason only. They want to discredit Manny Pacquiao, and try to brainwash all the fans into thinking Marquez is some great fighter won every single fight. “You won” Please Marquez, stop lying. and stop being disrespectful to Manny Pacquiao. He’s never said a bad thing about you. I wish the video would have addressed Marquez and Hereida and all the Peds he was given or the lies he and Nacho came up with to tell the media and then change their story. Juan Manuel Marquez is a good fighter, and one guy I respected before he fought Manny Pacquiao, but now after all these fights, I realize that Marquez is a cheater, liar, and is full of crap. He’s practically begging filipino fans to like him and agree with everything he says. Hookoffthejab, please no more of this hypocrite. Thank You.

I dont even think Khan was top 15 welter at any point. Top 15 at Lightweight, perhaps but not welter.

Tark, how do you keep a young boxer focused on a daily 6-hour clinching and defense workout?

Khan should work on clinching and defense for up to 6 hours a day—in three 2-hour sessions—for 6 months or until he starts mastering it… He’s been hurt too much. He’s taken too many head shots to take one (1) more fight not being able to clinch or defend adequately.. With as many fights as Khan’s had these skills should be automatic—but he’s ridiculously inept.. He has to get insane with it or his career is over.. 80% of his training should concentrate on fixing his problems.

Something like: 5am 5:30am run… 6am-8am clinch/defense workout… 10am-12pm clinch/defense workout… 2pm-4pm clinch/defense workout.. 5pm-6pm regular workout… 6pm-6:30pm strength training… It doesn’t have to be intense. It has to be productive. He can either get deadly serious—or he can cash in with a Mayweather fight and retire. He’s going to get hurt bad if he continues fighting world class boxers with his present skill set.

Even good athletes with 40 fights have massive skill deficits. Styles make fights. Managers match their fighters to get wins. Foreman didn’t meet a good heavyweight boxer until he met Ali. Khan didn’t meet a good brawler until he met Maidana. Only a fighter with great all-around skills can face every style and come through undamaged. Work as a sparring partner, like Wilder did for Klitschko and Harrison, perks up weaknesses. But sparring the same guy for days or weeks on end is a really bad thing. Just like fighting the same style fighter every fight because that style makes you look good is bad.

They have already cleared him of that so why do we keep bringing it up. At least he wasn’t scared to take the drug test even though he came up dirty. We live in a land of 2nd chances.

Brit Boxers against PEDS

Matthysse, do everyone a favour and knock this PED cheat out, get rid of the PED cheats, no place for them in the great Sport of Boxing

Weird. Khan never was a welterweight. why would he be ranked as a welterweight? He fights one catchweight fight and he’s a ranked welterweight? What? Now he’s been dropped from the top 15 welterweights? A place he didn’t deserve to be in the first place? OMG WBC you really reek.

Lamont Peterson, gets busted for PEDS?

Funny thing is that Khan really needs to run more in the ring- poor guy had the right strategy from day 1. This guy should not be fighting toe to toe with anyone because his leaky defence will get him knocked out. He has great physical ability- speed, reach etc, he needs to box & get out of there. The word is out – if you want to beat Khan make it a slugfest & you will catch him eventually. lets hope hunter can fix that defence cause he is exciting to watch when he has his game on.
