Default Re: Amir Khan: "I believed in my own power more than anything, and that was my downfa

For the most part that is a very positive change in attitude. I had really hoped that he could get his feet back on the ground and take a realistic view of the situation, and this sounds a lot closer to that than anything he would have said a year ago.

He still says 'we' on occasion when referring to negative things (getting KOed) and 'I' when referring to positive things ("I'm an exciting fighter"), which is a sign of only taking responsibility for the good stuff. However, he seems to be doing that much less, which I think is a sign that he's finally accepting that he needs to sort out his whole outlook.

I don't like the fact that he says that Garcia's punch would KO anyone, because I simply don't believe it, but I like that he admits that he should simply not be getting caught like that.

Overall, I think this looks like this could be the change in direction Khan needed.
