Jake you are RIGHT, But it DOES NOT CHANGE the FACT KHan was CHEATED on USA soil, by the JUDGES, REF and that DRUG TAKER PEDERSON. And PEDERSON kept the BELTS after he was CAUGHT taking PEDS. Only in AMERICAPosted August 10, 2013 12:54 pm
khan got ktfo by prescott ok but then would never fight him again , how about that rematch, he knows mosely has nothing left and is a somewhat safe opponent, remember he was also nearly ko`d by maidanaPosted August 9, 2013 5:03 am

Boxing Barlow. You see KHAN is a REAL CHAMP in my eyes wants to FIGHT the best. HE WAS ROB BY THE JUDGES in the USA and Peterson was on PEDS also. What a dISGRACE in boxing ONLY in the USA. KHAN should of CHERRYPICK like Mayweather he would STILL have his beltsPosted August 9, 2013 1:46 am

ONLY in the USA cheat to WIN. PEDS rig JUDGES . Larry Merchant said on NATIONAL TV.. If you FIGHT an American on their SOIL, you NEED a KNOCK out to get a DRAW.. Hes RIGHT.Posted August 9, 2013 1:42 am
Drug cheat, simples, Khan fought him in his own backyard ref against him, Peds against him as well, and Pederson still kept his World title after getting busted for Peds, next time anyone refers to the Peterson v Khan fight, have the decency to mention that Peterson was on Peds.Posted August 8, 2013 8:23 pm

Amir Khan hasn’t had any undeserved loses Garcia and Prescott beat him fair and square they hit him harder than he hit them,and he got KOd,the name of the game is hit and don’t get hit.Peterson and the man in the hat rubbish was any excuse he was told rapetadley to stop pushing and he didn’t who’s faults that.Posted August 8, 2013 5:31 am
You also need to look at a fighter and decide what was a mistake and a tactical error, rather than just no being up to the job. In every loss Khan has suffered you can evaluate it and easily spot where his fight plan went wrong and how you could adapt it to change the outcome if there were to be a rematch. Other fighter who get outclassed you just look at and think that no matter how they changed their approach to the fight the outcome would be a loss as they just dont have the skills to be effective.Posted August 8, 2013 5:24 am
AMIR WAS NOT CAUGHT COLD by BREIDIS PRESOTT…
Amir stormed into Breidis in his arrogance thinking he could walk right through him and was caught by a stiff jab that wobbled him and then was beaten up badly, even though the ref tried everything he could to help Amir, he was outclassed, beaten to the punch and KO’d badly!Posted August 8, 2013 2:56 am
What a retarded article! Average fighter??? Really? You think Khan has the abilities of the “average” boxer? Then why is his record 28-3 and not 28-28?
Please find a dictionary and look up the term “average” before throwing it around at world championship level fighters (unless of course you want to say “Amir Khan is an average world championship level fighter”).Posted August 8, 2013 2:44 am
“I love Shane…..but to think he can win is reatrded…..NO WAY” So you think Khan’s last two opponents are better than Mosley?Posted August 8, 2013 2:05 am

Just for all of those who still like to believe that Amir Khan has spent his career running from Breidis Prescott, here are the actual facts:

Brook v Mosley would of been a good fight for Brook, to get him known more, Khan v Mosley doesn’t make sense.Posted August 7, 2013 6:50 pm
meanwhile, we’ve all expressed frustration at the way deserving but dangerous fighters are deprived of the big-money matchups. today, i’m going to express my frustration at the fact that an unworthy Shane has received too many big-money matchups and many far beyond his expiration date. as if two matchups v. the “Golden Goose” wasn’t enough, a prime Mosley was also able to collect multiple paydays v. Winky and Forrest resulting in 4 Losses(?!). however, rather than being the end of a great prizefighting run, Shane was just getting started. Vargas, Cotto, Mayorga, Margarito, Mayweather, Pacquiao*, and Alvarez resulting in a win-loss record of 5-4 v the most profitable opponents at the time. add the unofficial but accurate results of his bouts v. DLH, Wright, and Forrest and his win-loss record becomes 6-9. along the way he confessed to juicing for the DLH rematch, which was a scorecard robbery to begin with and Drew v. Mora(?!). this is barely the profile of a journeyman but Shane is now being considered for a matchup v. the Biggest B-level Draw in Boxing? enough is enough. Shane needs to retire and stop pretending that he’s still got any shot at becoming a competitive contender for any title.Posted August 7, 2013 6:37 pm
Khan is more than an “average fighter”. he actually does possess breakaway talent but only average execution skills, which results in some glaring openings for his opponents to exploit. othewise, every fighter Khan’s lost too has been a designated opponent who exceeded expectations. unexpectedly KOing Khan remains Presscott’s career highlight. i thought Khan was robbed v. Alexander. those point-deductions were completely bogus and the only time i’ve ever seen a fighter’s ability to push-off being so strictly prohibited. Cotto was doing the very same thing to general praise just the week before v. Margarito(?). Garcia has done an excellent job of parleying his “W” over Khan into a steady build-up for his own showdown v. Mathysse. anyway, Khan’s ego and arrogance is the biggest obstacle to his success. he’s simply not that much better than every opponent like he believes. if he doesn’t tighten-up his fight-game with real poise, maturity, and an intentional focus on defensive skills, he’ll never become more than a dangerous contender and eventually just an opponent.Posted August 7, 2013 6:26 pm
Shane should use his jab in this one, the one he had great success with before, the Ped jab.Posted August 7, 2013 6:22 pm
I don’t know, I see shane fighting like he has to pay some bills and put food on his plate for this one. Khan better not take this lightly, Shane has one more good Sunday punch in him, he (Shane) knows that one good left hook could change things. Good luck Shane.Posted August 7, 2013 6:20 pm
Khan v Mayweather would be an interesting fight, Khan only has 2 legit losses, he was beating Garcia easy until he got of his gameplan, Prescott he was caught cold aginst, can happen to any boxer.Posted August 7, 2013 5:29 pm
Showtime and the boxing world Knows full well that Khan would be another CHERRY for Floyd to pick even after Floyds defeat to Canelo.Posted August 7, 2013 5:20 pm
This is a Set-up by none other than Goldenboy promotions so Khan would have a Shot at Floyd regardless of the Canelo vs Floyd outcome.Posted August 7, 2013 5:15 pm

Khan is shot and so is Mosley. The question is whether a 26 yr old Khan is further gone than an ancient Mosley. If this fight is made it shows how far gone Khan is. The kid will be walking on his heels and fighting in small shows when he’s 30. The money and all the trappings will be long gone. Same story.Posted August 7, 2013 3:53 pm
Shane will be the toughest fight Khan has ever had. If it happens look for Shane to be following Khan around the ring all night because Khan will attempt to pot shot his way to a win while continuously evading Mosley.Posted August 7, 2013 2:34 pm
stuck in a moment
This is the only fight Khan can get?Posted August 7, 2013 2:16 pm
KHAN WAS DOMINATED LIKE I HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE ON MANY OCCASSIONS by BREIDIS PRESCOTT in the 54 seconds or so the bout lasted.
He was wobbled by a stiff jab, before he got felled twice.
Now THAT is EXPOSED !
BTW Khan ran away from a rematch with Breidis who literally got on his knees and begged for years for another chance to check him out at the chin-check hotel!Posted August 7, 2013 1:30 pm
Khan exposed by Peterson and Garcia? Being exposed in my book is being outclassed. Exposed is a Calzaghe on Jeff Lacey style job. Neither of Khans losses were like this. The Peterson fight was very close to the point I had Khan actually winning it by a point. And in the Garcia fight Khan was well in command until Garcia sparked him. In my book a fighter with the skill of Khan should always be given a return fight when one ends in this manner to prove it was no fluke. Either way Khan is far from exposed in my book he just has not been able to lift himself above the Peterson, Alexander, Garcia etc etc level. He should definately still be fighting at this level as he is competative there.Posted August 7, 2013 12:44 pm
They’re dragging Ole SHAME up to feed to Khan. hahahahahahahahaPosted August 7, 2013 11:46 am
Sugar Shane was my favorite fighter of his era, but it is past time for him to hang them up! I’m so sick of seeing him lose to lesser fighters that he would’ve walked thru in his prime. I don’t see Shane winning this fight, but I just hope he doesn’t get KOed or beaten too badly.Posted August 7, 2013 11:06 am
Khan is still open to the left hook. When Diaz knocked him down Kahn was dropping his right hand whilst ducking into the hook (I suspect Hunter is training him to slip rather than block the left hook). Although Mosley has a lot of miles on the clock I could see him timing Khan with a hook at some point and I suspect he still has the ability to finish an opponent in trouble. Who do they match Khan with if he fails to get past Mosley?Posted August 7, 2013 10:46 am

I dont see khan beating Mosley although Mosley is an older fighter khan doesn’t have the power. I see a slow sloppy fight with Sugar Shane getting the nod.. anyhow they’re both at the end oif their careers and how Mosley got this fight is a mystery all to its own …..Posted August 7, 2013 9:06 am
AMIR KHAN IS THE DAVID BECKHAM OF BOXING ALL HYPE NO SKILL.Posted August 7, 2013 8:58 am
SAD TRUTH IS YOU REALLY want to like AMIR KHAN, but then he opens his mouth and flaps his gums and you realise just why he is so disliked.
He talks about himself in the third person, just like LENNOX LEWIS, which is one of the first signs of lunacy – and sadly he really believes his PT BARNUM style of hocus pocus!
I only hope he gets ouf of the hurt business before he becames just another pug who can’t remember his own name or how to tie up his shoelaces – tyhe signs are already there!Posted August 7, 2013 8:03 am
I’d prefer Mosley just quit, but this is perhaps the only big name opponent he has a chance against, so good luck to him.Posted August 7, 2013 8:02 am
Fight Kahn can not win. Who did you beat, an old man, what did you prove? Nothing! Glass Joe…..oops. I mean Kahn or his people picked the wrong fighter. Mosley the old lion is not as fast as he once was. He still has a chin and power is the last thing to go on a fighter. What would this do for Mosley? Nothing, beating Kahn is nothing special. It might get him one more payday but that’s about it. Fight has more meaning for Mosley.Posted August 7, 2013 7:56 am
Khan wants the safest, easiest option which will lead to a Mayweather fight. He knows Floyd will KO him, he doesn’t care, he just wants the payday. Khan is a joke. How can anyone take him seriously? Shame on Mayweather if he gives this bum a shot.Posted August 7, 2013 7:40 am
I like both men, and I hope they are well paid, but this fight doesn’t mean much. A few years ago, there would be interest, but that ship has sailed. I assume Khan will outspeed the aged Mosley, but what does that prove? At this stage, Mosley is overdue for retirement. I expect Khan needs to keep winning in order to cash in with Mayweather and this fight will serve that purpose. A last payday for Mosely, and busy work for Khan; not an exciting prospect.Posted August 7, 2013 7:33 am
not an oz of interest in Khan vs Mosely, none!Posted August 7, 2013 4:07 am
When Khan fights now, his opponents are in there thinking, I can take the strafing, I can drop rounds, I only need to time that left hook once.
Even if Khan fights absolutely beautifully, tattoos opponent face with the jab, mixes in sharp rights, sneaky little body shots and wins a big UD or late stoppage, all fans will be thinking is “Oh well he is lucky the left hook didn`t land but in the NEXT fight it will”.
My analogy for Khan is that he is a Ferrari being driven by a drunk.
eat sh** american conPosted August 7, 2013 3:40 am
THE REASON WHY KHAN IS TAKING the “easier” option of MOSLEY is that IMHO there is a big chance (70/30) that ALEXANDER beats him.
KHAN is waiting in line as I believe he will be next if FLOYD MAYWEATHER gets by CANELO…
Money talks and Khan knows DEVON is super talented, ( if considered boring by some fans). Mosley is there for the taking and is a name oppponent, so he feels he is in a win-win scenario…. It will also sell more than a DEVON fight.
Khan is not prepared to let that MONEYTRAIN leave town without him! No way!Posted August 7, 2013 3:16 am
SEEMS THE RUMOURS I HEARD were correct about SUGAR SHANE facing off against AMIR KHAN.
If Khan has any sense he will box on the outside and use the whole ring like he did vs KOTELNIK to lift the Jnr Welterweight strap.
If he stands and trades even with an old SUGAR, he may well just get chin-checked. I think MOSLEY is still able to finish a fighter when he hurts them unlike the KIDD was able to do last time out vs KHAN.
Khan should win due to teh fact that the 40+ SUGAR has shown serious signs of decline in his last few outings. I doubt he can chase a guy down anymore, but if Khan stands and trades it could be another matter!Posted August 7, 2013 3:11 am
Because when you’re an old guy and beat a young guy it’s that much better. And if the kid is a little chinny the odds are more attractive.Posted August 7, 2013 2:09 am
What is it about boxing fans that, unlike fans of every other sport, they seem to be unaware of the passing of time? All this analysis of “holes that Mosley could exploit” or his chance of “landing an early knockout”? 2006 Shane Mosley would annihilate Amir Khan but do you see the problem here? 2006 Shane Mosley only existed in 2006, 2013 Shane Mosley has nothing to offer the sport, no reason to carry on. Why do we get these comparisons every time someone with an impressive career steps into the ring? If 2 teams in any other sport play each other everybody is aware that the players and team dynamic has changed, analysis of their head-to-head over the last decade doesn’t affect THIS matchup. Why can’t boxing fans understand similar logic?Posted August 7, 2013 1:42 am
Shame Mosley vs Tomato Khan…. not very interesting fight thoughPosted August 7, 2013 12:57 am
This fight is just terrible. I wouldn’t waste my time with it. Amir is afraid of the real competition apparently…Posted August 7, 2013 12:26 am

They don’t want Alexander.. They’re scared.. They don’t know who to fight.. Mosley is the go to opponent for flake offs.Posted August 6, 2013 11:12 pm
What happened to Alexander? Or getting the winner of Matthysse-Garcia? Golden Boy’s propping this puppet up again. Artificially bloating this fraud will only set him up for another spectacular, highlight reel KO loss. They can keep him away from danger for only so long, but when a guy doesn’t deserve to be at the top he shouldn’t be at the top. I’ll be waiting.Posted August 6, 2013 11:02 pm

GONZO OF NAZARETH
Amir Khan is scared of feather fisted Devon Alexander soo he decides to take on an old man who is going no where after an illustrious career. He might be on his way to retirement but he will still KO Khan. And this time Khan will retire permanently. Good riddancePosted August 6, 2013 7:07 pm
Amir Con reminds me of AROD (except AROD has about 500 million dollars more)… They both act like they can still win a championship, they both are beyond delusiosal as they still think they can contribute to their sport. I cant stand to see thee sight of these 2 a-holes. Amir Con will get his ass beat by Shane if they rolled him in on a wheelchair. WTF is wrong with this Con he has to have easily one of the worst if not the worst chin in boxing though Seth Mitchell is catching up… lolPosted August 6, 2013 7:03 pm
I actually like Mosley to beat Khan… Why not?
Very much like Bernard Hopkins, there’s a certain type of fighter Shane Mosley loves to fight—boxers Shane sees as technically deficient: Antonio Margarito, Ricardo Mayorga, Luis Collazo, Fernando Vargas, Shannan Taylor, even Oscar De La Hoya… He saw the holes … and was anxious to fight them.
Even before he learned Margarito was a cheater Shane said, “Margarito is way too easy to hit… I can’t see this guy beating me ever.”
Khan has tons of technical flaws and is easy to hit. Shane will be polite and nice. He will talk about what a great challenge this is—and an opportunity to redeem himself … Then he will fight with murder in his heart.Posted August 6, 2013 6:57 pm
Khan should do everything he can to stay away from this fight.
Mosley is beyond shot but he has a pretty good chance of scoring a lucky one punch kayo in the first couple of rounds.
Way too much risk, if Amir were to lose it would be straight back to UK domestic level for good.Posted August 6, 2013 6:48 pm
Shane looked pretty good in his last fight. Khans getting ko’d again.Posted August 6, 2013 6:44 pm
Khan will be to FAST …..The one positive for Shane is that AmereCon wont be able to hurt him too bad , because that will mean khan will have to plant his feet aloowing Shane the opportunity to hit him , and I can not see khans method of push & shoving working on Mosley I would pay to see this match up throw Mikey Gracia and Rigo as well as Frampton on the undercard against some live bodys add up to a great card ….Posted August 6, 2013 6:13 pm
Khan should not fight Mosley, he is another confirmed Ped user, Ped users shuld be banned from the sport.Posted August 6, 2013 5:54 pm
Although it’s his life and he should do whatever he wants to do with it, Shane needs to retired. Furthermore, he doesn’t have anything to win in this fight. Because of Khan’s previous two loses and a no-so-thrill win on his last fight, a win by Shane against him would me almost meaningless at this point.
Nevertheless, if he loses, he must take that as a sign that his boxing days are over. But I don’t see him winning this fight, or any other fight against most 140 or 147 top 15 fighters. As opposed to Hopkins, who relied on his boxing savvy throughout his career, Shane relied mostly on his endurance and punching power. That punching power and the legs needed to develop that punching power are gone.
Kahn, on the other hand, has nothing to win and everything to lose in this fight. If he wins, then everyone will say (and may be right) he beat “a has been”. But if he loses, then he might as well call his career over. Two loses in a row, a no-so-thrill win and another lost will spell a horrible resume, especially if he loses by KO.Posted August 6, 2013 5:38 pm
shane has power, but no stamina, and khan can box in and out.Posted August 6, 2013 5:22 pm
The Peterson fight was not a loss, Peterson was doped up on performance enhancing drugs, why anyone keeps referring to it as a loss for Khan.Posted August 6, 2013 5:18 pm
Please tell me this is a sick joke…..OMG

They are both damaged goods so they may just causiously box each other not taking many changes in a very boring snooze fest. I would pull for amir in this one as mosley is a has been, at least Amir can still have a future but mosley is done as an elite fighter. Mosley should be announcing fights or training fighters or something I rather not see him fight anymore.Posted August 6, 2013 3:41 pm
If Mosely can continue to hit and hurt Khan it will be a great fight. I’ve noticed in the past that if Mosely can hit you he will fight hard as hell but, if he gets hit and can’t return the favor he folds by the fifth. Khan always fights hard and tries for the KO but, can he hit hard enough to hurt Mosely and upset him? Should be a good fight.Posted August 6, 2013 3:38 pm

How far have these fighters fallen? Mosley nothing more than to get payday and be a punch bag for fighters something like a world class journey man like glen Johnson? Khan now needs hand picked opponents as he can’t be the elite fighters or close to elite. But any fight with khan is interesting as you just don’t know what can happen. Mosley has a lot to gain and first fight in a long time he has chance of winning as he has some power enough to break glass anyway. Khan gets another name on record if he wins but needs a stoppage if he wants to be among the elite againPosted August 6, 2013 2:31 pm

No, this is not “an interesting fight”. Why? Because it has Shane Mosley in it. I am not interested in seeing Shane Mosley fight ever again. I have not been interested in watching Shane Mosley fight for over 3 years now. Every fight he has been in is further proof that he should retire. I know Amir Khan still needs a few warm up fights while Virgil Hunter tries to coach any elements of entertaining boxing out of him and turn him into a welterweight Andre Ward but this is still a step too far down for anyone aspiring to fight at world level.Posted August 6, 2013 1:55 pm
