Even so, he was schooled in that fight and given the ''prospect'' victory over 8 rounds by 75-77, He then fights Scott Lawton in his 27th fight i believe? And it took him 6 rounds to wear him down, Murray once again left marked up and couldnt get Lawton out of there, Khan fought him in his 14th fight and just outsped and hurt him for 4 rounds with relative ease, getting hit cleanly about once in the first round by a right hand while Lawton backed up to the ropes.

In 4 years time Khans achievements will outshine every fighter you mentioned apart from maybe Lewis.

Hes done very well up to now hes got the rest of his career to move up and start fighting the best in the division but hes doing reasonably well at the moment. He'll move up eventually and do quite well I suspect but there will always be a nagging doubt until he fights and beats Prescott and takes a meaningful punch without collapsing.

Boxrec will never mention things like that.

It's the same with Tocker Pudwill.

(Although having just looked, it does mention that Pudwill was a late replacement for Ice Tea)

khan is an over hyped up no body. We will see how long he can be guided round decent opponents that can punch.

You've proved my point by having to use Oscar, a pretty rare case, as a comparison.

That's the problem Khan has, he's being measured against exceptional fighters, not just being judged for who and what he is.
