And Khan achieved all that 10 years sooner than the Joemeister in age, 10 years sooner than 'sick note' himself.

The best super-middleweight of all-time doesn't lose clearly to Robin Reid (a man who was schooled by Henry ****ing Wharton for five rounds and a mid-40s Sugar Boy Malinga!).

The all-time greats don't pull out of 50% of their scheduled fights with a bad hand and take 10 years to attempt to unify a WBO strap with one of the three main belts.

Sorry, but no.

They are of a similar level and Khan is still going strong.

Khan still going strong? He's struggled in his last 4 fights. Lost to Peterson, KTFO by Garcia and went life and death with average boxers like Molina and Diaz

Watch the Joemeister's fights with ****ing Reid, David ****ing Starie, Rick Thornberry, Kabary Salem and Evans Ashira for ****sake and tell me this guy was one of the all-time greatest or whatever

Tocker Pudwill, Will McIntyre, Mger Mkrtchyan (wtf?), Branko Sobot, Jiminez, Peter Manfredo! And looking shit! Please don't tell me this is the all-time greatest anything[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Stop trolling Bulldog, Joe schooled Hopkins, Jones, Kessler, Lacy and all the other top super middleweights around the time. The Reid fight was close but he deservedly got the decision. Sven Ottke was afraid to leave Germany in case he saw Super Joe.

Joe wasn't the least bit interested in fighting Ottke because he knew he'd be made to look awful. He wasn't the least bit interested in fighting Frankie Liles either, a tall southpaw with a dangerous right hook....

Joe schooled Hopkins? What fight were you watching?!

Kessler hadn't fought anyone near their best, or even the names he fought past-their-best weren't particularly good at their best. Possibly the most padded record in history Kessler had going into the Joemeister fight, and most undeserved unified world champion lb4lb ever (by far). Froch was better than Kessler at the time. The division became dry as **** until Ward and Dirrell came through and Taylor moved up (history shows us Joemeister would never have faced those guys).

Maidana who is facing the #2 lb4lb best of all-time (behind James Toney). I bet he does better against Mayweather than Kessler did against Ward, and Mayweather now is a whole class and a bit above Ward then.

Both operated at world level, both have very fast hands, both have questionable wins on their records. That's where the comparison ends, I think.

Calzaghe had an excellent chin, Khan doesn't. Calzaghe could adapt and had ring IQ, Khan much less so. Calzaghe had great movement (he span Lacy round on a sixpence), whereas Khan is much more limited.

If this sounds like criticising Khan, it's not. There's no shame in being less capable than Joe Calzaghe.

lost and got outboxed by a average D level fighter in Peterson
got knocked down by rachid drilzane, limod, gomez, diaz
'lost' to willie limond
etc etc etc
khan has won about 4 wort title fights against feather fisted 'names' and D level bums
Calzaghe won about 25 world title fights inclsuing lots of big punchers
calzaghe reigned at 11 years khan reigned for 2 years

like I said only a trolling idiotic fool would even put them in the same sentence
World title fights, really? Officially, yes. But we all know Frank Waren was bringing fighters from the top 30 into the top 10 for Joemeister to face off with one or twice a year in front of 900 people at Newport Ice Rink, and both got paid handsomely by Sky (who were desperately looking for ways to break contract with Sports Network due to Joemeister's opposition and unpredictable pulling out of fights with a poorly hand so he could keep his face intact for going out on the lash on St Marys Street and Greyfriars Road).

Khan has speed on a par with or above the Joemeister and is more explosive. I admit that in terms of instinctual positioning, gifted timing and blessed reflexes/chin, the Joemeister is better than him, and the Joemeister has slightly quicker and more inventive flurries with more punches from more angles to more areas.

Khan is just abnormally tall and rangey for his weight, with an abnormal ammount of fast-twitch muscle fibres for a non-black sportsman.
When I say this, I say this as Joemeister at his absolutely very peak best (3rd round against Jones, Lacy, 1st/2nd rounds against Eubank, Veit rematch, last eight rounds against Kessler). But for most of the rest of his career he wasn't on Amir Khan's level.
