I wouldn't even call Casa a hugely powerful puncher. A Casa who is really on his way down and i hope that he isn't around in a couple of yrs to take on Khan!

Some ppl on here seem to think that this Kats is some world class stalwart and ppl who have seen at least a few of his last fights, without even needing to follow him closely, would know that he just ain't!

I think within a year, Khan would be ready for him. I think he could take him now but i think the right level of experience is necessary for Khan. Not that i think Khan is anywhere near a world level fighter yet but Kats (One of my fave fighters to watch, btw) would just be a name on Khan's resume.

Yeah, he would cause Khan huge problems with Kats' sheer power but Khan would have the advantage of his skills and size advantage and the fact that he'll be fighting someone who can't defend for shit! Sometimes i would wish Kats would calm it down a little cos i really hope to see him continue for ten more years cos he's is one of my favourite warriors!

And another thing is that I will not be making the mistake in thinking that Casa is somehow still in his prime because, i just don't think he is. This fight just gives a very distorted view. He beat Kats who is many ppls fave fighter but in no way did he beat a world class young fighter. He didnt even beat a fighter who made 'mistakes' as Kats claimed because that's just the way he fights. If he did just makes 'mistakes', he's been doing that shit for a long time and will be doing it until he retires.

my sentiments exactly

I think Katsidis deserves more praise for his performance (bar one moment of madness), I think the sentiment that he would lose 9 times out of 10 against Casamayor is probably way off - let's not forget that Katsidis was actually ahead on the cards when for some unknown reason he decided to go all out (even after the terrible first round). I think he definitely deserves a rematch, and if he learns some vital lessons then I would have him as the favourite to win.

I'm not a Khan nuthugger or a ****** fan but I don't see where this thread is heading. Katsidis was caused big trouble by Earl who was then put away without any probs by Khan. Casamayor shouldn't even be in this fight - the decision he got off Santa Cruz preceding this was a disgrace. I don't think Khan would be the one wanting to avoid either of this pair

The problem with a Khan-Katsidis fight would be that by the time it's even considered, Katsidis might have taken too many shots. When you fight like Katsidis does then you can't really maintain your prime for too long.

There would be no point in setting up Khan-Katsidis by the time he's way past it. If it's going to, let it happen now (Frank ****** would conveniently find his way around this).

I like Katsidis...but the Gatti comparisions are bang on Im afriad.

I honestly think Khan would beat him...though as Jeff says his handlers are unlikely to risk it.

I would expect ****** to want to wait it out for Campbell and Casamayor to fight each other, then drop a title. Or for Pac to beat Diaz and then move up and challenege for the vacant title.

Contender for fight of the year so thats what I'm going to do - record it when they show a delayed airing this Friday 9.30pm Sky Sports 1.

These guys would be a HUGE step up for Khan and Kristjansen is hardly the right preparation for either.

Maybe thats an explanation for McAllister withdrawing from his upcoming fight with Gomez - if he were to lose his title he would also lose the chance of a lucrative fight with Khan.

Now that Rees has lost and the lightweight division in general has been shaken up McAllister is the easiest and quickest route to a 'world title' (I use that term loosely) for Khan.

i think lightweight is on of the strongest divisons. Casamayor, Katsidis, Campbell, Diaz and the contedners like Khan are good too.
