If Khan was good enough to beat Prescott, Peterson, and Garcia?

YEAH!!! Let’s DO it!!! Put him in there with Floyd… But that’s not reality. The long and short of it is—he didn’t even beat Julio Diaz.

It’s all about the Benjamins, it has nothing to do with who’s at the top. Garcia makes perfect sence but money wise kahn is your first pick.
I would love to see if Rulan could back Floyd down. As for Kahn i dont believe he could make this fight exciting, the only tickets sold would be to the Brits and if the fight is in EU, i’m sure they could fill a soccer stadium.

What about Danny Garcia? He clobbered Khan and stopped him early. That moves Garcia way ahead of Khan in the Mayweather sweepstakes.

They are looking at Khan because of the UK location, lots of PPV buyings fans there. Floyd is trying to make as much money as possible before he hangs them up for good. Can’t blame him because if he retires at 38/39, at the rate he spends cash he is gonna need a bundle to carry him for another 40 years.

Whilst I wouldnt put money on Khan to beat Mayweather, but at this moment in time out of all fighters out the its a fight with Khan which I think offers the most interest. No one has ever outboxed Amir Khan. Its his chin that has let him down. Its a big factor and I would bet that Mayweather could KO Khan. But until that happens I think it would be real interesting to see how Mayweather would handle Khans speed. Is Khan quicker that Floyd? I dont know but I think its would be more fun to watch than seeing Floyd in there with anyone else (a part from pacman).

While Khan does not have much chance to beat Mayweather, who does? Khan has beaten Maidana and knocked out Judah. That should count for something. He has skill and decent power. Will that be enough? No, not to win, but it might make for an exciting fight for as long as it lasts. (I would guess, about seven rounds.)

Was Hatton sober when he said Khan deserves a shot? Was it 2am and Hatton was on his 18th pint of beer maybe? Khan is a joke and doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near Floyd. Khan’s speed didn’t trouble Prescott, Peterson, Garcia or Diaz, so why do people keep saying his speed will trouble Floyd? Is Floyd somehow a worse fighter than Prescott or Diaz? Come on, this is crazy. Khan is a b-list overhyped fighter who just wants a one last massive pay day before he retires.

Khan is probably faster than Void, and I know Pac is. Void will never fight Pac because styles make fights and Void knows it. Void is afraid to fight Pac because he is afraid he might lose……..

I agree that Manny Pacquiao is much faster than both Khan and Mayweather. Mayweather doesn’t want to fight Pacquiao for many reasons, but one big reason is that Manny Pacquiao is faster than Mayweather. Mayweather chooses only slow fighters to fight because he wins fights by using his speed. Mayweather will never fight Pacquiao knowing that he can’t match Pacquiao’s lightning speed with “One punch changes the whole fight” style.

Mayweather can defeat the glass chin Khan, but Manny Pacquiao will MURDER Khan. That’s the difference.

Also, Mayweather can match Khan’s speed, but Manny Pacquiao will be an overmatched Khan’s speed.

To me, Khan is just a sideline boxer.

Of course, when I talk about defence, I am really referring to what I am going to have my lawyer tell the court about why I was caught with twelve children locked in my basement, and why I have an ice cream truck with a fully functioning S & M suite in the back.

It’s not a chin that makes you champ.. It’s defense.. Boxing is the art of self defense, first, last, and always.. Anyone can get beaten up, hurt, stopped, or knocked stiff — it’s only defensive mastery that can prevent those things from happening.

Offense is super important… Defense is 7 times 77 times as important.

Posted October 20, 2013 2:39 am

TARK IS SPOT ON….

Anyone starting out at a boxing gym and not shown defence before any other aspect of the fight game and then slung into a boxing ring should get the hell out of there fast. You could end up in hospital. A good trainer will sit you down and talk to you to ascertain how much you actually understand about the science of boxing. Some trainers won’t let you lace up a pair of gloves before mastering specific ground work drills and others specific defensive drills.

I remember reading one site where guys have said they went to gyms to get fit and were slung in with the top fighters in that gym and were given complete hidings, with some ending up being hospitalised.
This is not what boxing is about at any level, and especially at grass roots level. Participants should be matched very carefully and brought along with steady increases in what they are allowed to do under proper and safe supervision for months if not years before they can be allowed to even dip their toes in the competent pool level of that club.
Personally anyone who has been thrown to the wolves has grounds to press charges and those particular trainers and clubs should be shut down!

What speed?….oh speed in running and blocking! This dude. Has the ability to block every single punch because that’s all he practice and perfected. He neutralize the action with super fast defense. Boring to watch! Let him fight Clottey now let see if he can beat him.

Fact is that Floyd Mayweather is NEVER going to have known defeat as a prime age boxer… He will be 37 by the time of his next contest and few elite fighters in history made it to that age and remained undefeated… He may lose over the next few years but it will never have been during the peak of his abilities… Absent him getting old in a couple years, Khans not the man to defeat him…

Posted October 20, 2013 8:01 am 


SREDMOND

Absent crushing power at 147 Floyd Mayweather is the most complete fighter in boxing and that’s been proven over the course of 17 years.. If it was only speed or power that were the antidote he would have lost, fact is that he’s one of the SMARTEST boxers who ever lived, he feeds off others mistakes and makes Soooooo few… Khans hands are “flashy quick” he looks good on combo, but he’s not ultra crisp and he’s been shown susceptible during exchanges… Khan would be a money fight for Mayweather and he’d rightly be given little shot to win…

Didn’t Hatton move up to welter and win a world title at the weight, and also remain unbeaten for 40+ fights before he got the Mayweather fight? Yet Khan deserves a shot because he’s never fought at welter, only fleetingly held titles at the weight below and has lost 2 of his last 4 fights.

Brook will win his next fight by KO. Hatton is flattering himself there saying points, if Malignaggi can stop Senchenko, Brook will have him on toast within 6 rounds.

I don’t think anyone can honestly say khan deserves this shot or has any cha ce of winning. The purpose of this fight however is to see floyds skills and to be tested against someone who for once has an aspect to their game that could trouble him briefly. Much better fight then watching floyds vs a fighter who isn’t as gifted in any aspect. Who should floyd face if not amir? GGG? Martinez? Cotto again? Alexander? You tell me

Floyd was incredibly fast when he was at 130 and 135. As he put that weight and muscle on it slowed him down. But his defensive skills and boxing IQ along with his stamina keeps him a couple steps above every one else

Posted October 20, 2013 12:25 am

Amir has faster hand speed than Floyd but he’s lacking in defensive skills. And offensive for that matter. But if it was just a quickness contest, I’d take Amir over Floyd.

Posted October 20, 2013 12:05 am

Floyd’s speed isn’t that great. It’s his combination of skills that defines him as a fighter. Miguel Cotto found his nose just fine. Floyd is fast, but not that fast.

Khan CANNOT match Floyd Mayweather for speed. His punches take too long to come out, and he doesn’t have the quick type snap in his punches. They seem to take forever to get there because his arms are long. This deosn’t really matter at all. Khan’s chin and ability will always be his down fall against any quality fighter. Khan is a mirage of a fighter.

Khan is simply that a con, he has a glass jaw and will get schooled like everyone else but it can be big because his England following but he has no chance of winning. I think Floyd can beat him and Danny Garcia in the same night…

murderman…..couldnt have said it better! Speed is one thing, “skilz” is quite another! There is a “quickness” that Khan must develop in order to “be first” in initiating the pace & tempo. Speed fighters come a dime a dozen, MANY can EASILY match Mayweathers speed, but its a deliberate, seemingly effortless quickness thats developed thru “hard work, dedication” and a confident patience!” Khans dedication seems to be in endless talking, daydreaming, fighting at a FRENETIC fast pace that leaves him open to well placed shots and not knowing how to fight going backwards.

Ricky Hatton didnt have that quickness either, he was fast in a “take your head off kinda way,” going to the body then wrestling the hell outta you in an attempt to “get in your head.” Hatton and Khan seem to be overly confident in speed, but speed is something you can “time,” just ask Tarver when he landed flush on Roy. I think Roy had other issues (thats beside the point), but the point still remains: speed can be timed, quickness is hard to anticipate and defend because it comes from nowhere!

Floyd wants to fight in England because it’s a huge boxing market, he’ll fill out the stadium and sell a bunch of ppv. Khan just happens to be the biggest name in the UK right now, plus he’ll also sell to a new demographic. It’s easy money. Just the way he likes it. Khan’s people are so insecure about him they didn’t even want to fight Alexander, which actually is a very good fight to get ready for Floyd.
Even Virgil Hunter said Khan is in for a rude awakening.

Posted October 19, 2013 4:06 pm 


TARK

Ricky Hatton.., “Amir’s one of the only fighters who can match Floyd for speed. If he’s on the back foot, he can make Floyd the hunter, rather than jumping down his throat like I did and so did Miguel Cotto.”

Sorry Ricky.., You’re no Miguel Cotto… Cotto didn’t jump down Floyd’s throat. Cotto boxed at times… used his ATG jab with surprising effectiveness at times… attacked at times… He bloodied Floyd… put some shots on Floyd… won some rounds off Floyd … and put the fight in the hands of the judges.

You got beaten from the outset… and were headed for a stoppage loss from the outset… Very similar to what will happen to Amir if he is gifted with an undeserved shot at Floyd.

Speed is great but you need the entire package to beat Maywaether. I could see Khan winning early rounds against Mayweather, but by the second half of the fight Mayweather would force khan into making mistakes and knock him out. It’ll be a fun fight while it lasts though, so it’s more than likely going to happen, even if Khan is non deserving.

Amir is the most over rated boxer in boxing. He got 3 loses ugly loses. He was KO in each of those loses. Everyone with half brain knows that he don’t belong in the ring against Mayweather. Ricky is just being nice. This guy Khan has speed sure but even his own trainer has warm him that he is not ready for a Mayweather fight. His own corner does not believe in him.

Just mentioning Khan vs. Floyd is preposterous. Mayweather Knocked out Hatton and schooled Marquez. What did Khan do between those two feats? He got Knocked out by Prescott….. IN THE FIRST ROUND! Khan the went on to lose to Peterson in a match and post fight drug test mired in controversy (and failure), whilst Floyd was knocking out Ortiz and running up an excellent scorecard against future Hall-of-famer Cotto. Khan’s answer for that? He spent less than 12 minutes in the ring with Danny Garcia getting a dose of brain damage before referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight. That fight’s second round was one of the sweetest of all time – the HBO commenters were so rooting so hard for Khan yet made no mention of his defenseless style and glass chin. May has went on to beat Guerrero and Alvarez – the man leaves great fighters in his wake, a wake Khan hardy deserves to be part of. I’m more disappointed Khan is even in the running for any sort of televised match than I am of Guerrero not planning a rebound. C’mon Robert – move up in weight and challenge K-9 Bundrage to get this ball rolling again!
