Leading into the fight last night I'd have said Khan v Arthur would have been a bloody difficult one to call. After last nights fight, I still think it would be a tough fight for both guys. But Arthur would stop Khan I now think. He has the power and extra shots that Limond lacks.

No chin of steel himself, but I think it is more solid than Khans.

As for improving you chin, I'm not convinced it is the actual chin that improves. For sure Khan has to improve his defence (which will certainly help), but one lapse or good shot to the chin could have him in a lot more bother than many fighters. It has been pointed out elsewhere that many fighters have gone on to have excellent careers with a weakish chin, as could Khan. But any top level boxer with a good punch on them will be gunning to get in the ring with him now.
I think Arthur would smash him fairly easily. I rate Arthurs chin far more than Khan's. I was ringside for the Gomez fight and Arthur took some real power shots before being stopped.

BTW. Should Arthur be victorious he will be arriving at Edinburgh Airport on Sunday 22nd at 1pm with his belt.
