Default Pacs terrible performance opens the door for Khan to shine

Most of us here were laughing off Kahn to disappoint, get knocked out and basically be unworthy.

#1 I don't think Khan will do much worse than Pac. Lets be honest, Pac doesn't deserve even half the PPV money he made, his performance was utterly horrible, injury or not he was completely overmatched.
#2 Even if Khan gets knocked out (which I think he will) he will have his moments. Unlike Pac he has speed, size and range to actually trouble Floyd. He can punch and I think he will stun Floyd a few times.

Overall Khan will get us better value for money than Pac ever did (or will in a rematach)

If Pacquiao can't handle Mayweather Khan most certainly khan't.
Pac did have his moments early but they where so far in between it was pretty dull.

Was very disapointed in Pacs performance, guess Mayweather is the greatest fighter this era after all. Long live the king!

Not bothered about this fight either way. Both Khan & Mayweather need to put their money where their mouth is and fight The Special One.

Kahn isn't even a contender. He barely beat Porter's left overs in Alexander. He needs to fight someone like Thurman, Porter, or Brook to show he's a contender.

So winning every round is 'barely beating' now?

Funny thing is so was Floyd vs. Pac. Complete mismatch. At least Khan has size and reach, Pac has nothing over Floyd.

That is a matter of semantics; it was a layman's term for Kahn has only recently beat Alexander. Kahn's resume is seriously lacking, especially at welterweight. Kahn doesn't have the tools or experience to beat Mayweather. He is just crying for a pay day. I'd like to see him beat one of the 3 that I mentioned before facing Mayweather.

Wait a second, wasn't Pac doing the same thing. We just found out the other night Pac has ZERO tools to beat Floyd and basically just showed up for a huge payday while doing very little.

Khan will get a paltry purse compared to Pac's and IMO will perform better simply because of his physical attributes.

Agree here. Khan has better tools than anyone FMJ has faced in a LONG time. A harder fighter than maybe his last 5-8 fights IMO.

Pacquiao didn't exactly do as bad as many are saying he did. He actually landed some serious bombs and stunned Mayweather numerous times. Pacquiao's awkwardness is what allowed him to land these shots. Khan isn't awkward at all and only has one attribute worth bragging about, which is speed. Literally everything else is either poor(punch resistance, stamina and ring IQ) or decent at best(power). Even with his extraordinary speed, his predictability makes him vulnerable to blind counters.

This isn't a hate post on Khan, it's merely an honest opinion on his attributes in the ring. I do know very well that he's a wonderful guy in person and also a true classy individual.

Interesting, better tools than Alvarez, Pacquiao and Cotto?. Based on what?, speed?. Last I checked, Pacquiao isn't slow either and pretty much destroys Khan in every single category.
