Ortiz was Golden Boys Golden Boy about to step into the role of Mexican American superhero.

They played their roles for a short while but they gave Maidana the wrong script.

I don't think Amir Khan would enjoy Maidana's power.
Cheers....its all coming back to me now

Khan used to get put down all the time whllst trying to look like a wrecking machine which meant he got tagged by getting carried away, providing he boxes clever I doubt maidana lands anything too serious.
You may well be right... thats the beauty of boxing. Styles make fights.

I think Khan gets drawn into a war at some stage over 12 rounds and gets poleaxed.

A good guide is Khan's managements willingess to take the fight against Maidana.

If the latest news is correct Golden Boy have weaseled Khan out of his mandatory defence against Maidana in favour of Paul the Popgun Malignaggi.

What Freddy says goes and looks like Maidana's power is a bit too much for him to bear.

They stripped Salita for not defending against his mandatory in exactly the same belt prior to Khan and they should have stripped Khan as well.

Rumour also has it that Golden Boy have struck some kind of step aside money deal where Khan doesn't fight Maidana for 3 fights and Maidana keeps defending the interim title.

The only speed Khan is showing is how fast he can get away from Maidana or a real fighter with power.

Old school fighters fight who they are supposed to fight not play these nonsense games.

Watching Malignaggi and Khan dance around like sugar plum fairies is not what the fans or the WBA wanted.

We know nothing about Khan until he fights Maidana, Alexander or Bradley.

Like coming from Gosford to Royal Randwick.

Khan hates shit about his chin so tries to prove he has one in the ring thus the machismo gets him into trouble.

Malignaggi vs khan will be an excellent technical boxing match as both are extremely quick agile fighters, I'm really looking forward to this.

The 3 fight deal is sketchy indeed but when maidana and khan happens it should in theory be bigger than right now.

"Old school fighters" arguments are largely circular I think they get whooped by today's crop of talent.

Khan vs malignaggi is a good match, look for an entertaining fight

Old school has nothing to do with era.

It is a fighting philosophy.

To say you are the best you fight the best and you fight anyone in your weight they put in front of you.

Example in todays era - Pavlik, Hopkins, Pacquiao, Juan Manuel Marquez, Vasquez, Marquez, Abraham, Williams, Cotto, Hatton, Darchinyan, Katsidis.

Saying Khan has found a chin because he has moved up in weight is gibberish if it hasn't been tested.

A strategy for a big 4 belt Champion to have fights to build up a "mandatory" defence is also 5 star nonsense.

Khan vs Malignaggi an entertaining fight? If they choose to take risks it might be. There are plenty of entertaining fights out there. That has nothing to do with the belt holding obligations of a champion.

Khan is not a prospect to be cotton wooled through the ranks.

He is supposedly a bona fide champion and should face his mandatories or be stripped like all fighters.
