Interesting that Khan stated recently that the only thing that Maidana has is power. Amir has always had a talent of stating the obvious and I hope this is not a sign of ****iness setting in. Recently he's been showing great ring discipline and he is evolving as a fighter - not as a guy because his mouth runs away from him - but certainly as a fighter.
Khan has the fitness and the ring generalship to coast this fight but Maidana will be coming after him all night or until Khan's razzle-dazzle combos force the referee to jump in.
Maidana was poor v Corley and whilst I've never rated him a guy with his power could end a career not physically but mentally. Khan's ring discipline is one of his strongest assets at the moment and I just hope he keeps it up should the fight happen. I always sense with the kid that complacency is not very far away.
. I think Khan's always had that type of attitude but that's just him and people bash him too much. I'm not a big fan of Khan at all but I think some of the shit he get's is out of line;.

And great post, agree 100%

Now that Khan has Maidana supposedly lined up for December 11th, will you buy this fight?

This fight is a 50/50 fight and could really be the making of a great fight with multiple knockdowns and a lot of drama. Maidana is a very dirty fighter also.

So would you buy this along with a DECENT undercard?

Poll coming.
There is no way this is a 50/50 fight. Khan is a class above Maidana, and this is coming from someone who is far from a Khan fan.

That's true, but his chin makes this a 50/50 fight.

No chin + KO artist = Bad ending.

Do you think Khan can keep Maidana off him for 12 rounds? Khan got hit flush quite a lot in the late rounds of the Kotelnik fight. Imagine what Maidana could do if he was landing the shots.

That's what makes it 50/50, because of Khan's chin.

Maidana has a punchers chance and that is all. Does that make it a 50/50? Of course not.

That's true but Khan's still going to get hit in the fight.

Yes, a punchers chance. But Khan isn't Floyd Mayweather. He doesn't have that defence. Khan will get hit and when you have a chin like Khan's, that DEFINETLY makes for a 50/50 fight IMO.

Khan wont be able to take one shot off Maidana and will be over quicker than Prescott put him in a stretcher. Maidana will walk in land a jab and it will be over. Waste of money.

I think most would buy this even with a shit PPV card. Its one of our top fighters in against a dangerous puncher.

In that sense, that's true but I don't understand how Khan won't get hit for 12 rounds. Khan will get hit by something sooner or later.

Yeah, but Maidana isn't Pacquaio either. His footwork is awful and he is going to be eating jabs all night. Yes, Khan will get hit, but that's exactly why he has a punchers chance.

Have you analysed Maidanas record?...his chin is far from solid, Khan hasn't been knocked down by a man with a 10% KO ratio and a 13-9 record. I've just finished watching (endured more like) the Maidana - Corley fight and to be honest if the cooked Corley had pushed the issue in the later rounds he would have had Maidana out of there...he had him rocked on several occasions. If old Corley can do it, Khan certainly can.
