Default Could Khan do this to Floyd?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Khan always seems to do well against southpaws eh.

btw don't try to directly answer the titled question with yes or no with an explanation...i'm not really looking for any answer since nothing can really be took from the video...this was 10 years ago lol. I'm just being provocative

That's sort of how i'd imagine Khan's and Floyd's style to matchup though...Floyd constantly countering Khan's offence after 3-4 rounds showing off his footwork.

DAT CUBAN SCHOOL OF BOXING!. younger floyd was as slick but his style has changed as he has gotten older, much less movement and energy conservation

I agree. I saw alot of that in the Maidana fight...wise really...Still feel he needed to up his offence a little to make Maidana more hesitant. especially whilst he had the centre of the ring away from the ropes. One Maidana right hand though and sht might have got real. :/

Credit to Maidana he did a decent job to prevent Floyd countering him when they weren't at close range.

Prescott, Garcia, Peterson couldn't win 1 round against Floyd if they tried...Khan could win 1 round. You understand boxing and how styles make fights?

How did Ali have trouble with Frazier who got absolutely whooped around the ring by Foreman but then Ali KO'd Foreman? magic?

Who would have expected a 17 yr old kid to hold his own against a legend like Mario Kindelan? You clearly wouldn't have...Stop living in a world of "he got beat by him and that guy beat that guy so therefore..." that's the beauty of boxing. underdogs & fighters who on paper don't look they should win, win.

I like Khan but he is going to get knocked out. Floyd may not be the biggest puncher, but he can break Amir's chin. Nor will Khan deter him with his new jab and grab style.

Khan has speed, but timing beats speed, and Floyd has the best timing in the sport.

Floyd also has better defense, better footwork, and a MUCH higher ring IQ than Khan. He's a master at adapting.

Tell me something I don't know xD. I'm not trying to make a case for Khan being able to beat Floyd over a 12 round fight here.
