Khan will have his hands full - St Clair is getting a bit long in the tooth but has a heap of experience

Khan should win, but i highly doubt he will KO St Clair early or in the mid rounds.

If St Clair can push it into the late rounds an upset is a possibility.

Great matchmaking by Frank ****** again, matching Khan with feather fisted boxers.
They all no he has a glass chin, its just so obvious with these opponents.

We have guys like Tua and McCall who have all time great chins and excellent power not able to win titles, but guys like W.Klit and probably now Amir Khan with glass chins being regarded amongst the best in their divisions.

Wasnt Amir Khan given a millions dollar contract before his 1st pro fight? no wonder they will now milk him for all hes worth. they wont want to risk having him stopped or KO'd by a middle of the road guy otherwise they wont be able to cash in their boy

Yeah alot of it comes down to having the right management around u getting the right fights at the right time.

Very rarely u see a top 20 Pound4Pound boxer badly managed for a long period of time.

He no's his chin is made of china, so he might as well get it out before he becomes another Fraudley.

Seen him live when in England on the WilliamsVS Skelton card..

Very talented for a youngster but his jaw is more suited for curry rather then steaks if ya know what i mean

I lived in England for sometime and found it so strange how a olympic SILVER medallist could generate so much hype.

They even flew the bloke who defeated him over to fight khan at bolton with a crowd of over 30 thousand poms watching khan defeat the out of retirement and looking out of shape bloke.

It was the full 3 round amateur rules aswell.

And with the grub Frank ****** as his manger the hype machine will role on fighting decent but very limited generally feather fisted fighters.

Until one day he becomes over confident and meets a hardhitting hardnosed top line challenger probably from mexico or maybe oz(our man kats) who will teach him a lesson and send him into retirement ala Prince Naseem.

Yes but think we will see a similar story unfold.

Especially if both their driving abilities are anything to go by.
