Matthysse will knock Khan out.

WTF?

Dumb Dumb Rios would be a better fight for Khan…

I don’t worry about talking because talking is how you promote a fight. If you want to be big box office you talk your ass off and Khan is good at that …. The problem with Khan isn’t a glass chin. He took a murderous shot that would have decked anybody. If you’re stunned and hurt you have to be able to grab effectively. You have to buy a minute to clear your head because it’s the next shot that going to really hurt you. Garcia is the last guy Khan should fight right now, and Matthysse is almost as bad. If he wants to end his career he should fight these before he acquires needed skills. He’s a sucker for uppercuts, roundhouse shots, and hooks on the inside. Any great infighter who can apply endless pressure is going to rip Khan to pieces right now because he hasn’t learned a damned thing since his Maidana fight.

Khan doesn’t deserve so much hate, when he went to the states he was encouraged to talk more to increase hype, he was very polite beforehand. This coincided with him growing in confidence as a maturing adult and he has internalised this behaviour to an extent but he is always more toned down when addressing the UK media. He has to be confident or he would never have come back from the Prescott loss to give us so many exciting fights.
As for Goldenboy, they don’t care because they know ho’s fights sell and they promote him as being exciting. He’s a Gatti incarnation.

I don’t think people literally mean chin and it doesn’t matter if the shot hit the neck and chin, what do you expect with gloves that size? The point is that there was massive follow-through and he got timed and caught hard. I don’t think his ‘chin’ is particularly weak I just think he gets caught too much.

Floyd would destroy Khan on the inside. Zab was a lot further past prime when AK fought him.

This is NOT a fight I’d pick for Kahn — may actually be one of the worst picks he could make. If I was Kahn’s team I’d rematch Garcia. Kahn could beat him if he was more patient and paid attention to when he is getting timed.

And Floyd is a good infighter. Khan needs to rebuild his name back up before jumping in with the elite boxers.

Posted September 13, 2012 9:29 pm 


TARK

Khan did a better job on Judah than Floyd did because AK is super fast and Judah is a pure boxer who doesn’t like rough fights—the perfect setup for Khan as Kotelnik was.. Floyd is also a boxer so that is actually not a bad matchup for Khan.. The guys who kill Khan love to mix, can apply pressure endlessly, and keep throwing. Guys like Maidana, Garcia, Peterson, and Matthysse — and that’s because Khan has no inside offense such as Ward excels in, no clinching skills, and his inside defense needs tons and tons of work.

If only we would could see this happening to Mayweather. Boxing would be so great! :grin:

Koolz

the Gracia KO was not the chin it’s actually more the lower neck and jaw it’s part that is easy to shut the brain off. In Martial Arts you can hit someone in that area and completely make them unable to fight.

It’s very lucky place to be punched.

Posted September 13, 2012 8:01 pm 


Koolz

Is Khan Nutz!!!! He would be KO’d and I don’t mean the one punch kind!

Posted September 13, 2012 7:57 pm

Title should be khan wants to get ko’d & retired for good lol.

Good on Khan. Yes, he’s a sore loser. Yes, he gets knocked out. But at least he’s still chasing fights. That being said, I wanna see Mathysse K him TFO! :smile:

Khan wrote off Peterson, then Garcia, don’t need no crystal ball to see how this will pan out.

There is courage, then there is stupidity. Unfortunately khan has a bad combination of both.

Can no one tell that Khan has brain damage; those shots are going to give him Parkinson’s @ 30

Posted September 13, 2012 6:46 pm 


Boxtradamus

Khan should be rematching Peterson who has just enough pop to NOT knock you out.

Posted September 13, 2012 6:36 pm 


Boxtradamus

According to TARK Khan would give Floyd all he can handle. LOL….I’ve been saying that Khan was overrated and I was CORRECT. If Khan takes on Matthysse it’ll be another knockout LOSS for him.

Posted September 13, 2012 6:35 pm

Matthysse KO’s Khan with ease

Posted September 13, 2012 6:11 pm

Poor Khan bluffing away….. Poor guy just aint got the beard for the fight game……. Khan will fight the pope before he fights Matthysse……….

Kahn is done – do the khan wobble. hahahahaha

Khan has the ambition of a champion but he needs to get some sense. Matthysse is the wrong guy to make a comeback fight with especially after a KO loss. Khan needs a softer touch for a comeback fight then maybe jump on an old guy with a name (like Judah before he retires). Even Judah is dangerous for the first half vs Khan at this point. But Judah is getting old & is due to choke again.

Khan’s history, he just doesn’t have a decent enough chin for the very top level. He’s fast but leaves himself vulnerable. He’s made a decent amount of money, he should bow out while he’s still got some of his senses. You can’t do the spaghetti legged walk too many times without incurring mental issues.

Posted September 13, 2012 2:00 pm 


WTF?

Chavez Sr. like his protoje MargaCheato were glove loaders, Matyssese is not loading his Gloves like those two cheats…

Posted September 13, 2012 1:55 pm 


WTF?

Matyssesee needs to fight Dumb Dumb Rios and kick his ASS right out of Boxing once and for all… as for Khan wanting Matyessee, its a brave move but it will be the end of him…

Posted September 13, 2012 1:53 pm 


REM

I gotta say i like Kahn. After what happened in his last fight to consider Lucas says alot about the fighter this kid is. Yeah he talks alot but at least he looks to fight the best at his weight unlike Floyd who runs his mouth and consistently ducks the best fighters at his weight. Kahn is the most talented jww and dudes better hope he doesnt smarten up and use his superior boxing talent.

Posted September 13, 2012 1:47 pm

Actually I want to see Mathyssee kick Garcias ass only to shut up his loud mouth dad.

Posted September 13, 2012 1:33 pm 


The Best!

Mathyssee reminds me a lot of Chavez Sr he has a lot of potential for greatness. I would love to see him fight the winner of Rios vs Alvarado. Glass chin Khan would get destroyed by Mathyssee

khan talks so much crap LOL

Posted September 13, 2012 1:15 pm 


Realtalk

No a good move! 2nd KO easy too

Posted September 13, 2012 1:13 pm 


Fate1

Honestly khan should really go after Robert Guerrero @147 for his interim title. Guerrero is a good boxer but not powerful puncher. Khan would have a slight height and reach advantage. Khan will also be the faster fighter. They are both promoted by golden boy so it should be an easy fight to make. Khan should stay away from matthysse.

The Mad Scientist

This guy again and my boy Swift still nowhere to be found with a fight coming up, how sad..why so many articles about A mere Con..? I guess the media also grew accustomed to seeing this chump get KTFO on any given Saturday night like most of us fans.

Posted September 13, 2012 12:14 pm 


JoeKidd

Lovely joke. Would love to see this! If Khan hasn’t been embarrassed enough, this fight should close the door.

Posted September 13, 2012 11:52 am

Matthysse is better than Maidana in every way including power, and Khan was hanging on against Maidana.

Posted September 13, 2012 11:49 am 


Maximus

If he signs for this he needs to change his nickname from the ridiculous Amir “King” Khan to Amir “the Kamikaze” Khan.. Obviously he has not a lot of regard for his own well being…

Posted September 13, 2012 11:31 am 


TARK

Matthysse is a much better fighter than Maidana… He’s a better boxer and doesn’t absorb as much incoming. He cuts off the ring off better and quicker. His punches are shorter and more direct. He absorbs punches a little better. He’s a better athlete. He’s smarter …. Matthysse is the last fight I would have Khan take. Matthysse is the toughest mixer in the 140-pound class. I would go for opponents such as Soto, Kotelnik, Vargas, and Guzman for a year or two — and work several hours every day on clinching, infighting, and defense until they’re no longer weaknesses, but strengths. Khan has one thing a lot of boxers don’t have—a lot of time to get better. The problem I see is Khan is waaaay overconfident. He thinks Garcia caught him by accident and this is sheer nonsense. But Amir is looking for another trainer, and the first thing you have to do to address problems is admit you have them …. He did say, “I’m not the world’s best defender.” He’s right about that.

… there Khan goes ‘talking’ again.

Posted September 13, 2012 11:23 am

I see Maidana and Mathysse as very similiar. And Maidana didnt “kick his ass” or “kill” Khan did he?

Posted September 13, 2012 9:50 am

Matthysse will knock Khan out. Period.

Kahn does this and his career is over and probably his life!!!!

Posted September 13, 2012 9:25 am 


Olu G. Rotimi

This will be a career suicide fight for Khan.

Posted September 13, 2012 9:16 am

Khan needs to build his career back up before going anywhere near someone as dangerous as Matthysse. He needs to get his confidence back and needs to work a lot with his new trainer(s) on his defects – that will take quite a while and if they have any sense they will line up something like a sequence of 3 progressively harder fights before Khan goes anywhere near the level he was fighting at – as long as he wins them of course. Team Khan have loads of very hard decisions to make in terms of choosing a new trainer and who to fight in these comeback fights which is a real problem as they don’t usually make such decisions wisely.

Article should read “Khan possibly interested in getting his ass kicked.”

Curtley

I am not on anyones Di@k just believe in rational thinking. If a 2 time world champ and Olympic silver medalist is a joke what does that make the scores of very good domestic level fighters? You are clearly someone who has never boxed or has boxed and failed as you do not seem to realise what level of talent and dedication it takes to win a minor title let alone what it takes to reach the top as Khan has done, yes he has fallen from that peak but to call him a joke does definately make you a hater. BTW I would defend any fighter who you call a joke and am in no way a Khan fanboy.

Posted September 13, 2012 8:46 am 


love-the-sport

Guts does not equal brains. Guts does not equal money. Winners who win in dramatic fights = money. Winners who win by knockouts = money. Guys who get knocked out = losers. Khan needs to turn his career around and pick smart fights that he can win. He needs to fix the holes in game. He needs to stop getting knocked out and knocked around.

Haha the Khan show just keeps getting funnier and funnier :lol:

Posted September 13, 2012 7:46 am 


mack

Matthysse is a bad choice for Khan right now. I don’t doubt Khan’s skills or courage, but it would be foolish to go in with a tireless, big hitter like Matthysse. Khan’s people will have to build him up again, and fights with Garcia and Peterson would make more sense and,would probably be safer. In fact, the Theophane fight might be the way to go as a first step, especially if Khan is changing trainers.

Posted September 13, 2012 7:38 am 


Ton!!!

Its not hating …it’s a fact ..the guy it’s a joke …he may have an offense and he could learn how to work on his defense ..but that chin of his is is made of porcelain..all he is good for its getting KTFO in dramatic fashion !!

Posted September 13, 2012 7:13 am

Time to wake up and get off Khan D#@k …khan is a joke !!

ahahahahah Matthysse would KTFO khan, bring it on.

Posted September 13, 2012 6:34 am 


Curtley

I would absolutely love him to come back and beat Matthysse which if he boxed sensibly and didn’t do his usual thing of ‘getting involved’ he could. Like him or hate him he may be far less resilient than the Argentine and only have half his power but he is far faster and slicker and could potentially box his ears off, he could also get obliterated and thats the fun and what fights should be about other than another guaranteed Mayweather of Klitschko whitewash!

Posted September 13, 2012 6:17 am 


Curtley

You guys are a joke Khan is not afraid to take on anyone even with his suspect chin which is admirable. If a fighter takes on bums they are accused of ducking, if they want to test themselves vs the best you call them arrogant, yes Khan has been KO’es twice and cheated to another loss but nobody can deny he is exciting to watch, Amir is definately a bit arrogant when it comes to his opinions of himself as a fighter but away from the ring is a decent hardworking family man.

Posted September 13, 2012 6:13 am 


hullk

This is why he’s so unlikable – it’s not confidence or a warriors heart – it’s sheer arrogance and narcissism. He needs to accept his short comings and fight to his strengths, but he will never learn until it’s too late.

Posted September 13, 2012 6:04 am 


Pans

Lol. Yeah like that fight’s gonna happen. :roll: Why does Khan talk such garbage??

It would be like Tyson vs Marvis.

Posted September 13, 2012 5:41 am 


tornado

If khan fights Mattysse,he(khan) better stands his ground and fights like a man and not just throwing pitty pat blows,run around like a deer,holds and fouls and expect to get a decision.That would be an utter disgrace to boxing if he does that again.
