******'s a very experience operator: he can tell good from bad and he knows Khan can't hack it with a big puncher. he put him in with Limond, partly I think, to show Khan he still has work to do.
Even if Limond was at his hardest hitting best, he's still not a concussive puncher like Thaxton. Thaxton would get ********* for three rounds until Khan got ****y, then he'd leave himself open and he'd get belted.
Did you hear what they said in Limond's corner: if you can take away his speed he's not got much else.
Can't really disagree with that.
I'd agree that Khan at the moment is making a living off of his natural gifts, mainly his speed. While he has solid punching technique, he is not fighting in a style the complements his talents and in terms of boxing skill he is still an amatuer. Britains best talents need to start being trained by world class trainers if they are ever to compete on a world stage.
