I believe Golden Boy have matched him wisely, and carefully, and anybody who has followed Khan's path know this, Malignaggi was a poor option in comparison to what was available, as was McCloskey, Zab Judah is Zab Judah and i will openly tip my hat to the clinical nature in which Khan dealt with him, it remains his career's best performance by a country mile! i will also give Khan his dues for fighting Maidana, simply because he's a slugger who's difficuilt to look great against, but again he was not the best available option at the weight.
Kell Brook .............. ?? apparently "hasnt done enough"
Breidis Prescott never rematched
And yet Khan claims he and Ricky Hatton would be momumental, or "id love the opportunity to fight a legendary fighter like Erik Morales"
, i mean dont say you do not read between the lines when looking at who Khan ends up fighting when all is said and done.
He does talk some *******s, and I agree that goldenboy have matched him carefully, but I do think Khan would jump at the chance to avenge any of his losses. Certain fighters like Brook, and Murray a few years ago were dismissed by Khan, maybe due to his elevated opinion of himself, believing he's "too good" for them. He may feel the same way about McCloskey, Molina, etc but if these are the guys his promoters feel he needs to fight then he's gotta talk them up, however unconvincing he is. I don't know, I could be wrong but to me he doesn't seem like the type of guy who wants to duck and dodge.
