2008 Tszyu would KO Khan in 30 seconds.

I thought three things: 1. St Clair would be very faded by the late rounds; 2. Ref would stop the fight prematurely as Khan flurries St Clair against the ropes; 3. St Clair payed to get stopped on a TKO to hype Khan even more - the only man who could stop St Clair!

But even assuming, reasonably and realistically, that Khan will never be as good as Diaz is now...won't he still do well if he wins a big-four title this year, and by the end of his career unifies 2 belts, for example? Won't that have been a successful career? Or do you think Khan will only be considered successful if he becomes undisputed champion, like Calzaghe, for example...only if he becomes undisputed champion in a strong division, against top Champions...or only if he becomes a (top) ATG?
Good points it will be an exceptional achievement if he becomes a titlist and perhaps i'm expecting or wanting too much from him. But I think Hatton and Calzaghe have set a pedestal.

Yeah, but none of them were Champ at 21! Not that it's by any means guaranteed that Khan will be Champ at 21. Joe became Champ at 25; Hatton, at 22, if you consider WBU a title....only beat Tszyu at 27 for the IBF...

I think khan would batter Thaxton to defeat in 6 or 7 rounds. people seem to forget the way Dave Stewart, a tall fast pure boxer gave Thaxton hell, & had Thaxton wobbled many times. That fight told me that Khan would have a field day with Thaxton. Dont get me wrong, I admire Thaxtons balls for calling Khan out, but its a good job Khan isnt looking at a Thaxton fight, cos Khan wouldnt run out of gas like Stewart did, & a badly cut, hurt & swollen Thaxton would be pulled out by his corner at the end of round 7. Howzat for a prediction

I agree with the people here who think that Khan would stop Thaxton if they fought now, by around the 7th.

Thaxton would have a point to prove and not be in there to survive as was St Clair's tactic. It would be a better fight for the fans to watch aswell.
