Default Re: I thought Diaz beat Khan! Anyone else???

We've heard Khan 'reborn' so many times - never with any degree of sincerity. Khan doesn't have the versatility nor the intelligence to adapt and overcome his various weaknesses. No insult to Diaz, but he was chosen to fight Khan and if they thought he was going to put him down again he wouldn't have been. GBP are still talking up Khan v Mayweather - and I don't doubt that Mayweather would be laughing up his sleeve at the prospect - but really Golden Boy are thinking 'Where the **** do we go from here with this chinny dog of a fighter?'.
My exact sentiments before the fight.

Well articulated post.
