Default Re: Who can Khan beat for a World Title and who must he avoid?

Beat:
Alexander
Malignaggi

Lose to:
Bradley
Peterson

Get knocked out by:
Mayweather
Broner
Garcia
Matthysse

Khan has highly overrated boxing skills. If you can't deal with speed or if you can't punch at all, he can outbox you. Other than that, he's an extremely flawed fighter, his chin just makes it really obvious. Peterson outboxed the hell out of him, and Bradley would do a better job than that. Broner, Garcia, and Matthysse are all bound to catch him at some point. He does best against speedy fighters who can't punch, because he's faster and they aren't used to that. I think he would beat Alexander and Malignaggi convincingly.

I'd prefer to see Khan stay just below championship level. Rios, Alvarado, Lopez, Maidana, Judah, Provodnikov, Thurman, Ortiz, Berto, Brook, and Guerrero ar the sort of fights I'd like to see. Against a world-level opponent with skills, a chin, and a punch, Khan will always get beaten. The other guys have limitations which Khan could exploit, but they also have a shot at beating him so it would be good entertainment and he could make good money.
