Cant see Khan fighting Katsidis in what 10/11 weeks? No chance, not enough time to even promote this really. It is a big fight that can be made down the line, now if this fight was made that early after the fight Khan has just had, hats off to the man. He gets my respect.

Katsidis or Maidana will do, since people want to see him in with a puncher, don't think Khan is afraid of anyone in the division.

I actually think Khan is made of the good stuff people give him a hard time about ducking punchers etc etc, but he is one man in a huge team he is a young man in this game if he is being told by people who have been in the business years and years to take this route or take this fight what is he going to do, I think Khan will fight anyone. You can't question his heart just his chin.

What has Alexander done for you to give him such praise?

If Khan does fight in July I very much doubt it will be against Katsidis, who has just come off a long training camp and will be wanting to spend a bit of time with his newborn child.

Anyways haven't the WBO ordered the winner of Marquez-Diaz to fight Katsidis or be stripped? I doubt Katsidis will risk a guaranteed title shot.

"Such praise"?? I've only said he's one of the top 2/3 fighters in Khans division. Kats doesn't even fight at that weight.

I bet he would you know.

Another nice payday for him, if he loses to Khan he can always drop back down, a win or two and he would be right back in the mix.

I think Marquez beats Diaz again.... he won't be looking at Katsidis IMO.

A payday in a different division, meaning his status as being the challenger to the winner of Marquez vs Diaz or getting the WBO belt if they don't defend against him will still be in tact and the chance to challenge for another 'world' title.

May be too good of an opportunity to turn down.

I'm sure he would, but he hasn't yet. Thats why I place Alexander above him at 140.

I think it's a decent fight.

Khan would only be accused of ducking whoever he didn't fight anyway.

If he fights Maidana he's automatically ducking the winner of Bradley vs Alexander..... and vice-versa.

If he fights Katsidis he's a fraud who beats up on little guys all the time.

Katsidis might not be much smaller, if at all, and is more of a challenging match for him than some of the top 10 at 140.

Katsidis is massive for a lightweight so I wouldn't have complaints if Khan faces him in July
