Default Re: My thoughts on Khan's current situation [Let's talk]

I was a Khan fan, but his attitude and lack of discipline to use his jab and box and set up his punches is why he was knocked out last night. He will never be a really top fighter again. He has fought like this before. If he had only 1 fight where he lost by fluke punch then I would say ok he could be back. He lost 2 times by fluke punches and once with Peterson. I thought he should have beaten Peterson, but he swung in exchanges recklessly this same way, and was almost hit clean. I just do not understand how a guy with such wonderful handspeed cannot have the discipline and fundamentals to be as great as he could have been. He is like Jermaine Taylor. Fast hands but no fight plan.
