Yuri was very inactive at the time of his fight with Earl , he lost the early rounds due to rust and grew as the fight went on . He rocked Earl badly on a few occasions and I think if he had been more active he would of stopped Earl . In the end I still had Romanov a 1 point winner .

Earl fought the fight of his live and had a good style to cope with Romanov , if you compare how the two dealt with slick fighters(using a fighter both have fought in Vanzie) then Romanov comes out much better .

Romaov dropped Vanzie 5 times on route to stopping him in 8 rounds , where as Earl fought him twice and won two conttoversial decisions .
Earl has more wear on him , his chin isn't that great and he isn't that much of a puncher either(usualy stopping people on accumulation) and he isn't the most accurate or slick fighter himself(as shown by him getting schooled by Burns) .

It makes sense fighting Earl now , it's a fight which Khan can win and win looking very very good(probably better than Katsidis did) . I very much doubt he'd beat Romanov though .
really?? i didnt know that, just went by what boxrec said about earl and romanov

and you really think khan is so limited he cant even beat romanov??
