Ruben had Khan looking too big up top.
They said Ariza shifted Khan's weight to his legs too. That shit isn't gonna make a difference to Amir at this stage.

Yeah, it should be interesting. I'm quite concerned but then again, if Khan is out-muscled, bullied or dictated by a guy like Molina, then he's got to pack it in.

Is Broner gonna be in the Sky Sports studio for the fight tomorrow? Swear they were promising that the other night, he was on stage for the weigh in.

For sure. He should destroy Molina though. Dude has nothing to trouble Amir. Seeing his sessions with Virgil Hunter gave me hope that he might learn how to fight on the inside and use his brain, but I still think he will want to trade when he gets tagged, and when that happens is good night.

I think Khan can risk trading with him. Watching Molina's fights, his opponents really weren't fazed all too much when Molina threw the kitchen sink at them, so unless something is really wrong with Amir, I wouldn't expect Molina to actually hurt him.

Ya never know, though.

The only way Khan gets any credibility back is by beating this Molina fella quickly and beating Garcia and Lamont next year in rematches followed by trilogy fight wins against Lamont and Garcia in 2014.

I think Molina is getting very underrated, he has had a few fights 140lb so weight won't be an issue here for him. Molina has very fast hands, all around good boxing ability and since he undefeated and confident we don't know how good he really is.

To add to that we don't know how much Garcia KO took out of Khan, both physically and mentally. I think Khan will win a UD but will struggle.

Looked at Molina's record and he is hopelessly outmatched and has no punch. Just the ideal Amere Con opponent then.

W*rren's view on the fight (skipped the part where he blabs on about how he "resurrected" Khans career):
"Tonight in Los Angeles, just a week after his 26th birthday, promoters are giving away tickets for Khan’s comeback to anyone who donates a Christmas gift to disadvantaged children. The light-welter from Bolton has lost back-to-back world title fights.

He was closely outpointed by drug-fuelled Lamont Peterson, then clinically wiped out in four rounds by Danny Garcia in July.

Rather predictably, his coach Freddie Roach got the blame and got the sack.

New trainer Virgil Hunter, feted for steering Andre Ward to Olympic gold and unified super-middle world belts, has got his work cut out.

Khan, who is highly skilled and frighteningly quick, stubbornly refuses to fight to his strengths.

He lacks both the punch and defence to war with the division’s elite.

To improve, he must tighten his defence and become far more savvy when operating at top class.

He was always easy to nail with right hands.

Now, disturbingly, he’s sent to sleep with left hooks as well!

Still, I expect he’ll come through comfortably tonight, probably by stoppage.

Californian opponent Carlos Molina might be unbeaten in 18 but he’s a career lightweight — a division down from Khan.

And he hasn’t fought a single recognisable name during his 5Ĺ-year pro career.

At just 5ft 6in, he’s too short, too light and can’t break an egg.

So Khan needs to win in serious style tonight to get his career back on track."

Hate to say it, but i kinda agree with him.

Khan should keep this guy at range really no need to jump in, he can get the job done from range.

Yup, another easy opponent handed to Amir Khan't on a plate so the media can hype him up a bit for the clueless general public to lap up and go on believing Khan't is the messiah to boxing.

Anybody here who believes the Amir Khan't hype clearly doesn't understand boxing and should go back to watching wrestling.
