I don't give Garcia that much credit for his win because even with Peterson, Khan left himself open in exchanges. He was winning most of them because of speed, but he was close to being countered. I thought oh man Peterson is getting close when Khan goes for broke and leaves himself open. Had Peterson landed something big he could have stopped Khan like Garcia did. I am not sure who is going to win Zab vs. Garcia, probably the youth and power of Garcia, but Zab has a chance to look ok in that fight if he uses his jab and can avoid getting hit and stays fighting his fight. I think Garcia's win over Khan was 75 percent Khan's fault of leaving himself open.
Yep Khan recklessness cost him the losses more so vs Garcia as Peterson fight had other factors effecting the outcome too.
Yes Khan does have these problems but Hunter is the best guy for these problems, and i believe with his help and Khan's willingness to go back to boxing instead of fighting will pay off.
I still believe when Khan chooses to box he is a problem for any fighter so lets see if Hunter and tune Khan's head, i think he will.
