Usually, I'd agree with you. But Khan is a unique case whereby everytime he gets caught and hurt he looks genuinely susceptible to a serious injury. That behind ear-shot made me cringe ---which doesn't happen when I see other fighters take similar shots. I don't know if I'm alone in feeling this. Personally, I think he should have 1-2 more fights and based on that, consider what the best option is, with health being a primary factor.

At this minute in time, right as we're speaking, i don't think he should retire.

If he wises up, stops being so damn wreckless in his fights he can still have a long and succesful career.

But seriously, fights like he had on saturday cause a lot of ****ing damage, and 1 or a maximum of 2 more defeats like that, and he needs to hang it up.

I think when all is said and done, the story about Amir Khan might ultimately be a talented young guy who just had too much ****ing balls for his own good.

100% agree! Brilliant points. He fights for the crowd & to be seen as exciting. He has to fight like he did against Kotelnik. That's his best weapon. Look at Bernard Hopkins who is an absoloute legend but also one of the most boring fighters u can see. Same with Wlad.

he's built himself a name and a audience by being in exciting fights at his expense. i hope he fights boring now; he deserves to rewarded for fighting the best.
