Default OK, Next For Khan?

Lot of talk there about Maidana, Bradley & Alexander. Which I'm sure is fights we'd love to see but are they the right fights to stick him in against right now?

Bradley and Alexander I feel are just a bit too much of a step up at this moment. Maidana might be an OK choice for him but would you rather see him developed against some other contenders at 140 first?

Maybe Campbell, Ortiz, or Juan Diaz ... thing with this division is there will be plenty of decent fights to make. I don't think it would be very smart to move up to 147 yet, that's for sure.

Witter or Katsidis. Both would spark him out, but they'll continue to keep him away from any kind of puncher.

If hes talking about fighting July time I dont think thats enough time to prepare for Bradley or Alexander.. Hoping he takes Maidana or Ortiz next though.

I reckon he's ready for Maidana. As for Bradley/Alexander, might as well go all out and fight them now that he's got one of the belts. With the right strategy, I reckon he's got a fair chance against both.

For all the hype they get on the general, neither have proved that much more than him. Bradley has a decent resume, but he's hardly a KO artist, and Alexander has only had 20 fights (also with a decent resume).

Firstly. At this point i think khan would struggle with katsidis, so **** off with the slight.

Secondly, has it escaped your attention that they put prescott on the under card. Only possible reason is if it is khans next fight.

Mark my words khan to fight prescott next!!!

From what Khan said tonight, he's fighting in the UK next towards the end of the summer. Cant see them getting Maidana over for that, not when they can do it in the states 6 months later. I reckon it will be the Prescott rematch, which i suspect will do big business on sky box office at 10 oclock on a Saturady night. I'd love to see the Maidana fight though, i reckon Khan destroys him in 6 rounds.

Nope. Size and reach advantage, speed, Katsidis is easy to hit.

Not the first time Prescott was on a Khan undercard though.

Something tells me he'll be fighting Ortiz in the UK. Then he'd fight one of the 3. Is Maidana still injured?

This figh would have to be in the UK as it would sell like a pork pie at a Jewish street festival in the US. I really don't see the point in the fight as Khan has moved on from Prescott, and besides, surely he has to face his mando next

I don't know, I've completely lost track of the situation now...did he lose position because he contracted to fight Bradley?

I think Maidana would be an easier fight for Khan than Ortiz. Still can't see him winning against either though.

Ortiz ironically is the greater test boxing wise...if he stuck to a plan he would school the limited and chinny Maidana
