Who really cares?.Posted October 3, 2012 2:31 pm
Kornerman+ I understand what you mean but Froch didn´t get KO like Khan did. Froch never ever was knock out like that. This is the second time Khan was hurt real bad and think about his future.Posted October 2, 2012 4:33 pm
Khan is a great fighter with speed and power in both hands. The problem is his chin. He´s got to work at his defence. After a knock out like that it´s normal that he get a tune up fight. Just to see where he´s at.Posted October 2, 2012 4:26 pm
He should change his name to Khant.Posted October 2, 2012 11:33 am
I can understand what Tark is saying but the fans ain’t buying it,When Froch got beat from Kessler he laid it all on the line against Abraham in his next fight and won the adoration of the fans for doing this kind of act, and dont say oh but Kessler never kayo’d Froch,that dosnt matter an L is an L,Khan is doing the complete opposite,that’s the difference here.Posted October 2, 2012 11:32 am
i persoally wouldnt minnd seeing a khan/pac fight in the future if khan wins a couple of his next ones….eazy!Posted October 2, 2012 10:54 am
well you gotta give it to khan the kid dont shy away from those tough fights ….yuuup!!Posted October 2, 2012 10:52 am
Tark: Caution is fair enough if you adjust your attitude accordingly. But Khan is holding up a goldfish and saying, “See? I just caught a shark!” (Well, maybe a goldfish is too harsh; let’s call it an undersized barracuda…)Posted October 2, 2012 7:25 am
TARK, would be nice if he could at least fight some bum in the same weight class… Instead he fights a lightweight who hasn’t scored a KO in 2 years.
And he was talking about moving up to Welter before the Peterson fight. Goldenboy must have searched long and hard for a fight this easy. You can bet Khan will “back to his best” after he starches this loser in six. Or so the hype machine would have you believe.Posted October 2, 2012 4:35 am
To TJ – “If he would only man-up and admit he’s taking an easy test to ease his way back into the fray, people may just forgive him, but to give us his usual b.s. again is unforgiveable.” Great perspective. Khan, stop the smoke and mirrors and admit that its an easy opponent. You need to get back on track. There is no shame in that….just don’t call it a hard opponent, that’s all i’m saying.Posted October 1, 2012 8:19 pm
“Khan: I could have chosen an easy opponent for December 15th ” NEWS FLASH…..you DID choose an easy opponent for your next fightPosted October 1, 2012 8:03 pm
I really think this kid has been unlucky and he is still young, he just keeps saying things when he should shut his mouth. Very unlucky against Peterson and wlaked onto a bomb against Garcia, this kid still has a future, needs to stop being in such a hurry to win a fight. He is lighting quick…..should use that more.Posted October 1, 2012 5:37 pm
I don’t care if Khan is fighting a 70th rated guy. You don’t retool your skills against the biggest bangers out there unless you’re a crazy gambler … After a shark bites your cheeks off you don’t go out surfing again the next day with a lot of dorsal fins sticking out of the water.Posted October 1, 2012 4:58 pm
Prescott.Posted October 1, 2012 1:19 pm
“Sure he landed the Pac fight later but that wasn’t a sure thing and in hindsight it’s actually damaged his career.”
As opposed to Khan, whose career has hit new hights in recent months.
He’s now taking on the 70th best lightweight in the world. Thank goodness he isn’t looking for an easy fight.
Bradley didn’t duck Khan, he had promotional issues. Don’t believe the Khan hype machine, he’s gonna take on a number of bums until another soft light punching, or over the hill champion comes along. Whoever Bradley fights next, will be a Championship contender. One thing you can’t accuse Bradley of is avoiding anyone. He beat Peterson and Alexander when they were both undefeated and fought Witter in his own back yard. Pac result was a disgrace, but he had the balls to go in with him in the first place.Posted October 1, 2012 12:21 pm
I could’ve picked an easy opponent and in fact, I did.Posted October 1, 2012 11:41 am
The worst thing you can do with a boxer who’s retooling and upgrading his skills it to give him a couple of winnable fights, and then throw him in with a monster. Ricky Hatton came back with wins over Lazcano and Malignaggi—the Malignaggi fight being his first with a new trainer because of the problems he had with Lazcano—and then he was thrown right in with Pacquiao. I knew that was a disaster. A boxer must internalize brand new skills and make them instinctive—or the first time he gets hit really hard he reverts back to career long habits and instincts. Khan needs 6 or 7 winnable fights against fairly tough opponents to make the new stuff Hunter is teaching him as natural and instinctive as running his mouth …. He has time. He’s a kid.Posted October 1, 2012 11:03 am
I am still hoping for Bradley-v-Khan. It is a winnable fight for Khan.Posted October 1, 2012 10:44 am
Bradley flat out ducked Khan, he had a lucrative offer on the table that would have given him the chance to become the king at Jr Welterweight but instead opted for Casamayor. Sure he landed the Pac fight later but that wasn’t a sure thing and in hindsight it’s actually damaged his career.Posted October 1, 2012 9:41 am
Over managed, over rated, over protected… To say any more about this joke, would be a waste.
If this is PPV in the US and anyone pays for it, you need to have a word with yourselves.Posted October 1, 2012 9:03 am
You haters on here will never achieve half of what Khan has and he has done it at a very young age. As for dismissing all of the fighters he has beaten that also shows them a total lack of disrespect. Yes Khan has a poor chin which he exposes by being far too aggressive but his fights are exciting and the kid has some wonderful natural gifts, he is not the best but as someone who has boxed a little I appreciate the dedication and sacrifice he has made to get to where he is as many of his peers will simply be little hood rats in Bolton!Posted October 1, 2012 8:00 am
A boxer who’s fought Barrera, Kotelnik, Malignaggi, Maidana, Judah, Peterson, Garcia and who was ducked by Bradley… Hmmm, well Barrera was a clear no-contest massaged into a win for the good of Khan’s record, Kotelnik was described by Khan before the matchup was made as the weakest title-holder around, Malignaggi is renowned for light punching, Khan was pretty well saved by the ref against Maidana and of course he lost to Peterson and Garcia. So I think that list of names has a hollow ring as a measure of Khan’s supposed greatness. In retrospect the idea that Bradley was ducking him seems a bit ludicrous!Posted October 1, 2012 7:52 am
Why are some of you guys dismissing Molina by saying it’s an ‘easy’ fight before you’ve seen him fight or even know who he is. Apparently Molina couldn’t make the lightweight limit anymore and was moving up to light-welterweight anyway. He’s unbeaten and as Khan is apparently worse than useless anyway it could be a difficult night for Khan – we will just have to wait and see what Molina brings.Posted October 1, 2012 7:34 am
The good thing is Khan really have the talent to become a great fighter, but he is just way ahead of himself. He needs the patients to grow and become that great fighter, and it takes time, but he seems to be in a hurry, which ruins him. peace out.Posted October 1, 2012 7:08 am

KAHN OVER MOLINA 6.55 AMPosted October 1, 2012 6:52 am
Let me get this right…. a boxer who’s fought Barrera, Kotelnik, Malignaggi, Maidana, Judah, Peterson, Garcia and who was ducked by Bradley is what’s wrong with boxing…. facepalm.Posted October 1, 2012 6:44 am
I can’t wait for this fight and see what hunter ads to Khans arsenal. Props to Khan for taking on undefeated Carlos. By the way guys Carlos has already had a successful win at 140 and has now fully grown into that weight. Bet you dumb so called boxing fans didn’t know that lolPosted October 1, 2012 6:02 am
Joseph Herron, criticizing a boxer who you do not agree with his short comings,is not hating,it might be in your case but not others.It’s not hard to give Amir a pass, but does he deserve it.His fight card is littered with smaller,slower,non-punching nare do wells.Khan is not everything that is right about boxing,and saying he is willing to fight the best is deluded.You say Khan deserves better treatment from the true fans…..Perhaps he should consider his true fan more….Posted October 1, 2012 3:06 am

I don’t hate on Khan or any fighter..I just love waiting to see A mere Con getting KTFO for all the nonsense he talks..if Amir can fine success under the guidance of his new trainer than all power to him..I’ll be one the first ones here to give dude his props..until then I still have fun watching the kid fight anticipating the moment of Con doing the chicken dance for being so stupid and arrogant..Lol!Posted October 1, 2012 2:46 am
Ok yeah Khan was just going to jump back in there with someone like Matthysse despite just being knocked out heavy and hooking up with a new trainer. Hatred for Khan turns fans into to complete morons.Posted October 1, 2012 2:09 am
Khans clutching at straws….after this fight he needs 2 get back in the ring with a big name fighter 2 b taken seroiusPosted October 1, 2012 1:51 am

Danny Garcia is fighting a much tougher opponent in way past his prime Erik Morales than A mere Con is..Posted September 30, 2012 11:18 pm
Freudian slip. He couldn’t have chosen an easier fight.Posted September 30, 2012 11:13 pm
Could face an easier opponent but could face a harder opponent. Pretty good place to start from.Posted September 30, 2012 9:52 pm
How much easier can you get? The guy you are facing has fought practically unknown, unproven fighters. Just shut your mouth and concentrate on your training.Posted September 30, 2012 8:40 pm
I don’t understand why HBO declined Khan vs. Soto, both are coming off heavy stoppages and have entertaining styles. Say what you will about the UFC but at least they don’t turn their noses up at fighters because they’ve just lost.Posted September 30, 2012 8:39 pm
HBO already said no to two other clowns tried to throw in there!Posted September 30, 2012 8:26 pm
I wonder why he didn’t pick Kendall Hot he’s a creditable opponent and a legit jr w/w Khan is a joke and so is his team I can see HBO tearing up his contract I could see if he was humble but he talks trash and doesnt back it upPosted September 30, 2012 8:00 pm
No unbeaten opponent is easy for Khan right now… Even if he gets rid of them in the 1st round he’s always at risk… He has a lot to learn from Hunter before he dives back in with the Danny Garcia’s of the world.Posted September 30, 2012 6:47 pm
I like Amir, he’s a good fighter. But calling a light-hitting guy who is moving up in weight not an easy opponent is a stretch.Posted September 30, 2012 6:41 pm
AMIR KHAN is flapping his gums again, blowing smoke up all the rears of the gullible public who will once again fall for all of his shenanigans.
If he would only man-up and admit he’s taking an easy test to ease his way back into the fray, people may just forgive him, but to give us his usual b.s. again is unforgiveable.
Remember, this is the same buffoon who told us he was knocking out British & European champions and challengers at Super Welterweight and Middleweight in sparring, in David Haye’s self published magazine (which made me chortle)!!!
The sad truth is Amir was seduced and brainwashed by ODLH at Golden Boy and made to believe he was something he was never going to be… ie the future and face of boxing!!!!
He is still gripping on to this serious delusion like a pensioner with the winning Lotto ticket whilst someone more able and stronger is yanking it out of his feeble little hands.
If only Amir could look at himself in a mirror and be honest, he would be halfway to being not only a better boxer but also a better person, instead of throwing his toys out his pram every time he gets beaten or someone questions his abilities.
So, he’s facing a non-punching Lightweight???
What irks people is the way he dresses up these patsies as world beaters and talks about himself in the same breath as a Mayweather a Pacman or a Cotto.
Until he beats someone of that calibre, in their prime and not headbutts them to defeat we won’t sit up and listen to his nonsense.
The only piece of advice I’d give to Khan is to spend hours in the gym rolling with the punches, slipping them and parrying them as he’s never shown an inclination to do this in any of his fights and now not even in sparring….
This is a recipe for Pugilistic Dementia and sadly for him Amir he is far closer to the latter than he is to ever being mentioned in the same breath as the great boxers of any era!
But, then again when he mentions himself in the third person, using the Royal We, I ‘d doubt he’d even listen to the advise of Virgil Hunter!!!!Posted September 30, 2012 6:20 pm
Khan’s an idiot.Posted September 30, 2012 6:10 pm
Khan is on twitter asking whether he should keep his Goat T or shave it off. No wonder he under performs, his mind is mince meat. Khan cant back up anything, and if he beats molina..so what…..no way he could avenge any of his losses. his brain is damaged.Posted September 30, 2012 6:04 pm
what a kook.when the brits give up on you,you know your shot.that is because they are very loyal to their fighters.changing trainers is not going to be the miracle khan is grasping for.he really should have taken a break for a while like many top boxing folks recommended.this kids in state of delusion.enjoy oakland khan.Posted September 30, 2012 5:40 pm
Khan is dropping to 135 so he can actually beat someone.Posted September 30, 2012 5:28 pm
Khan is a waste of time!!! Who cares about this blame everyone, egotistical fool that has a glass jaw and doesn’t matter in boxing anymore. He opened his mouth too much and could never back anything up. Fool!!!! Now please go away for goodPosted September 30, 2012 5:16 pm
Can Khan do the Can Can?Posted September 30, 2012 5:16 pm
Khan can’t fight tough opponents.Posted September 30, 2012 5:14 pm
Vince exactly man he has all the tools to beat other good fighters but if he cant take a clean punch on the chin he would be as well give up because he’s gonna get hit on the chin again and the same thing will happen,the noodle.Posted September 30, 2012 4:52 pm
It’s Britain not England you ignorant arse. Are you American by any chance? If and when you get a passport come and visit we have real history. As for Khan he is not British so we don’t care.Posted September 30, 2012 4:51 pm
I could have chosen an easy opponent for December 15th – but I choose an easier opponent than that. Where’s my kleenex i want freddy to give me a hug…Posted September 30, 2012 4:45 pm
HHLondon- I thoroughly and hole heartedly agree good sir, he also reckons Virgil Hunter will give him 100% of his time ahhahahahahahahaPosted September 30, 2012 4:29 pm
My names Amir Khan & I’m taking on a real tough opponent in my next fight, his names Carlos Molina & despite him being a light-weight non-puncher, he he will be an extremely tough test at 147, these are the type of fights that really excite me as I want to clean out the division & go down in the history books as a legend & that starts with this tough tough fight, maybe in my next fight I’ll coax out micheal Gomez out of retirement for a fight at 154 for another amazing event.Posted September 30, 2012 4:21 pm
One thing I don’t think you’ve touched upon is Khan’s bizarre ability to take a loss as almost a win. ‘Danny is a good fighter but…’ Khan still feels top dog. The usual word is arrogant or conceited or whatever but he’s actually deluded. Amir thinks he’s the man and I don’t think any trainer can help him with that – if only – because that’s not what they’re paid to do. He’s a great natural boxer who is deservedly top 5 at 140. But the Prescott scenario and the Garcia thing, the best you can do is tighten up his defence, and once he takes a hit, he’s wide open anyway. All that said, he’s still, absolutely capable of beating many champs on points or KO if the big punch doesn’t land against him, but Amir’s now a Star in his own mind and perhaps not so much in Golden Boy’s mind, so let the games begin.Posted September 30, 2012 4:20 pm
Whos is this bum fooling lol,oh that’s right his brainwashed fans that pay to watch his sorry a## haha.So called matthysse i said no way he wants to end his career by KO he’s not that stupid.Molina is a light weight & khan is a drained welterweight that can’t fight take punches from guys his own size lol he won’t make it far at least overrated jr has a chin thanks to his Legendary father.Posted September 30, 2012 4:05 pm
what yall expect khan to say of course he going to say this a tough fight even if he knows it not that the only way he can get himself up for this fight all boxers do that thoPosted September 30, 2012 2:59 pm
Khan had to face them because he had nowhere else to go!
He ran from Maidana for 18 months, Maidana threatening him and WBA with legal action to get him in the ring and honor his mandatory obligation.
Khan was beaten by Peterson, a fight he thought he’d walk through even having the balls to give Peterson home advantage.
Khan was lucky to be handed his belt back by the corrupt WBA who hadn’t even completed an investigation, but gave the belt back to their boy for a sanction fee.
Garcia was thrown to the wolves by the shameful GBP but came well unstuck.
Let’s be careful about using the word “elite” when we’re discussing fighters like Peterson, Judah, Garcia, Malignaggi, McCloskey, Salita?
Is this really the definition of “Elite”?
This I am afraid is textbook Amir Khan matchmaking and there is no one out there that can sell Molina as some sort credible light-welterweight.
He is disadvantaged in EVERY SINGLE DEPARTMENT!Posted September 30, 2012 2:27 pm
lets tune into “sanity Fm” Khan cant hang with medium punches in his own divison ( danny garcia) so he is bringing them up from the division below. Khan has fought a lot of tough fights in a row and coming off a ko like that and a changing trainers he is entitled to a easy fight but don’t play this up like there is even the slightest chance this guy can win no matter how many tickets you want to sell which is why khan should take his rightful place on the undercard of a proper fight and build back up to the top level in the proper wayPosted September 30, 2012 2:18 pm
The problem I have with Khan is that he cries like a punk when he loses and then blames everybody but himself. He won me over as a fan by coming back from the Prescott loss but then lost me as a fan after the Peterson loss. He has heart and yes everything that you would want in a fighter he is just lacking in the chin department and the taking ownershipPosted September 30, 2012 2:15 pm
I have always liked Khan, But now he is losing the plot, how can Joan Guzman be beneath him but this guy not??? Bit deluded, he should be honest not full of itPosted September 30, 2012 2:07 pm
Geez I can’t stand this Khan characterPosted September 30, 2012 1:41 pm
Kahn is a deluded twatPosted September 30, 2012 1:13 pm
What he meant to say was…I couldn’t have chosen an easier opponent for Dec 15th….But he will talk this one up like it’s a title fight …..What a knob…..Posted September 30, 2012 1:07 pm
Everyone knows that Amir isn’t fighting top opposition in his comeback fight we don’t need an article a day from you telling us what we already know.Posted September 30, 2012 12:52 pm
