As a boxing fan the first thing that I feel the need to address is the fact that these two fighters delivered some great action.
Well said. Unfortunately some 'fans' kind of miss the whole point of boxing, which is to entertain the fans. And that fight was wildly entertaining!! Two tough men giving there absolute all.
If Khan had laboured to a shut out points win, his haters would have merely said that he can't punch hard at a higher level. Had he delivered a faultless masterclass the haters would have said Limond was no good and who had he beaten blah blah. We see these types of comments from the Hatton and Calzaghe haters on the main forum and my guess is that some of them date back years, and still those two are undefeated
