Odds on Kindelan would have been something special but there is a distinct difference between pros and amateurs.

Kindelan was very special. He was like a pro condensed into four rounds. Often a slow first round to figure you out and gauge what you had. Then it was all down hill after that as he picked you apart.

Even when he won by a point, it's not because his opponent was that good, its because he did not need to step it up another notch. He had that other gear in reserve.

What Khan did was amazing. People have forgotten how sensational Khan was as an amateur. 17yr old silver medalist, beat the best P4P amateur in the world and his moves spoke for themself.
