Default Is Khan the most unpopular?

I'm not feeling much love for Amir on ESB

Is he the most unpopular World Champion we've ever had in this country?

I personally like him.

He has been in some exciting fights, and think he has got real talent.

I do feel his public image needs to be worked on, he has made some silly comments on media sites, and his conduct following his last defeat did seem to bother people.

I would suggest that he needs to look at those responsible for advising him in that area.

I like him, but hate the way his nuthuggers big him up as the next fighter of the decade, the dude has skills, speed etc but he also has many flaws.

I like him, I take him for what he is, an exciting boxer. I don't worry about his tweets.

He is Britain's highest profile fighter along with David Haye.

And probably the 6th highest profile fighter in the entire world of boxing.

As a boxer he is worthy of being liked.

As a person he's a cunt.

I like him, as daft as some of the things he says are.

I ****ing despise his fans who know nothing of boxing outside of him and proclaim him as some sort of great, and dont even accept the gaps in their knowledge.

I like him, he does spout shit on twitter sometimes but that's hardly a reason to hate, he's young, successful and lets his ego get the better of him. Some people just go with the general consensus, hate him when he's doing bad and love him when he's doing good.

I'm not a fan, but he is in good fights, he needs to humble himself.

Plenty of both supporters and haters. No different to Calzaghe, Hamed, Eubank and many other British boxers.

I don't particularly like him but I think the level of hate he can get on here and other places can be over the top.

I quite like him, he lost a bit of respect from me the way he dealt with the loss, he seems like a good guy but doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.
