I think he is getting way to big for his boots

I honestly dont think he has proven he deserves to share a ring with Barrera

And there he is punching a hole through the image of a modern great

Personally I don't care who wins, Khan does give that image of trying to run before he can walk and often irritates me, Barrera on the other hand while I admire him as a fighter, I still remember him classlessly sucker-punching Morales(one of my favourites) in a press conference.

Although I do think Barrera is too experienced for Khan and will beat him, he may be past his best but he's definitely not a "shot fighter" and IF Khan manages to beat him it will be a decent win, not a great win but a good one.

yeah he punched Morales

but the personal feelings between them were at boiling point

and did you see Morales come back swinging........they were some hurtful looking swings...........no bluffing there..............lucky Barrera avoided them all

I hope Barrera wins as i cannot stand Khan.

Although i must admit i give him full props for having this fight when he could have chosen an easier path.

I want Barrera to win, however I have a nasty feeling that Khan will spring the upset.

I'll be supporting Khan. Think he might get a points win, but i'll probably change my mind a dozen times till fight night.

i think its a bit of a crazy choice at this stage of khans career, first a knockout artist, a decent fight after that and then an ex legend? what's wrong with bringing him on slowly? Khan could get schooled, high risk high reward tactics this, khan is only young as well so it's not like ****** has to rush him.

I have a feeling it's going to be a 6-7 round fight, and Amir Khan winning by TKO. Infact i am 95% sure he will win.

Forget record's and past achievements. Technically, it is possible..if you look at Antonio Barrera's style and at this stage of his career.

Amir Khan has more speed, the Size, good movement.

If Amir Khan avoid getting badly tagged, he will proceed to out boxing and beating up Antonio Barrera. But if Antonio Barrera tags Amir Khan and makes him hesitate inside the ring, it will be a totally different fight.

What has happened to all the china chin comments? How anyone or the slightest breeze could knock Khan out - now people are reluctently picking MAB (OK a far past best one) with great trepidation.

I am leaning to MAB to win. MAB has a very good chin and even against pacquiao in the rematch and against JMM he did not go down and he showed a great chin. Khan on the other hand isnt a big puncher at all. If khan did win it would be by UD. However, I am not sold on his chin. But it still a very tough fight to pick.

I want khan to win though. I hope he slams his head in the turnbuckle like MAB did naz.
