Default Khan World Title Bet

Just had a bet with my mate that Amir Khan will NOT win a version of a world title in a year from now.

I think my money is pretty safe

You may be right. His apserations seem a bit too lofty. Khan as much as his a good little talent doesnt in my opinion have the punching power to be a real world beater at 35. He may have enough to win the WBO but not before 25 fights at least. Its pretty safe to say Frank wont feed him to the lions just yet.

@ what odds was the bet? Also, what belts counted?

Doesnt Lee Mcallister fight Craig Docherty for the WBU title soon, winer to fight Khan?

In saying that, Khan Earl is due in December, Earl is ranked pretty high by the WBO.

I hope you told your friend that the WBU doesnt count as a world title

Khan won't be either Juan Diaz or Katsidis so the WBO strap is safe from Khan's grasp for now .

I don't think he'll be British champion in a years time , unless Thaxton has vacated for a bigger opportunity .

Agreed, and Khan is ranked higher than Earl anyway.
