Default Khan v Ricardo Torres

Last I heard Torres was involved in a tricky fight in his native Colombia and the odds of this happening are slim, but for fun who you got? I kinda became a Torres fan after his display against Cotto.

I'd fancy Khan but certainly can't discount Torres with his power and Khan's chin.

Bad fight for Khan. Khan has the right trainer to come up with a excellent fight plan but it could all go very wrong.

I've said elsewhere that I think he should try for a fight against Mallignaggi but, and I've been reminded by the mention of Torres, a fight against Kendall Holt would get him a date on US tv and is very winnable. I think Holt is very over-rated.

No he's moved up to welter.

Torres would get to Khan i have no doubts about that. Khan at some points on Saturday looked on edge when Kotelnik attacked he still isn't elusive enough to not be hit and i can't see him taking flush shots off Torres.

Torres is experienced and packs a bomb in both his hands. Khan should look for a winnable fight like Malignaggi, especially if he beats Diaz.

Enough Khan vs. punchers speculation. If his people have any sense it won't happen. Match him against boxers like Kotelnik (or Malignaggi) and he'll have a nice long healthy happy career.

Khan by brutal embarrassment. Totally different class of fighter and Khan would destroy Torres in 5 rounds.
