Obviously not now. Khans still number ten. I'm thinking if he gets by Earl and Thaxton, maybe a European shot and then onto Diaz.
I think leave the Rees route alone. Don't put yourself at 140 if thats not his size yet. Even if he got by Rees, he'd be left to deal with pain in the arses like Kotelnik. He doesn't need those guys now. Tough guys like Diaz but bigger.
Khan needs to be exposed to many more styles.
Cotto and Floyd did very well in being exposed to nearly every type of boxer before they were champs. Admittingly low level boxers but they gained alot of experience.
