Go Getta ,

Your missing the point mate , Khan flat footed and static is a disaster against anyone , the lad has no inside fighting game , offensive and defensive , he cannot fight on the inside

This has just been highlighted in the biggest possible way , and Freddie Roach knows this , he knows what his man can and cannot do , he knows what his opponent can and cannot do , they've switched off , both of them !!!

It's just shocking at this level, Roach and Khan both thought this would be a simple job, it could of been but these guys ego's are too big I guess.


Same thing vs Peterson too, fighting a guy like that in his backyard, Khan is not superman.

Being flat-footed wasn't Khan's problem. Khan being his usual predictable self, was.

It's interesting because now we think of it, when I think of Freddie Roach recently, I think Pacquiao, Chavez Jr, Israel Vazquez. Guys with great chins who come forward, take shots and throw leather at a hundred miles an hour.

Its pretty clear now Khan has settled into this style, he has become more of a fast-paced volume puncher at the end of the day. He even taps his gloves and chin when hurt...

Everything he does from here depends on if he wants to be an Arturo Gatti type, or Amir Khan. But your also right when you mention his heart. Insane amounts of the stuff, but he's almost a glutton for punishment now, like he's forgotten what's good for him!
Good post, Amir is still a child, Speaking to a mate who posts here he said he sort of lives in a sheltered life. He's not helped him mature the lad i think's to far gone to accept full how stupid he's been in the ring. When he lost to Prescott it was best thing to happen to him because he humbled and if your from a religious background you'd know how important being humble is. He worked so hard, developed so well but since winning a world title he's slowly fell back into bad habits and maybe wins against Judah and Maidana have clouded his thoughts on himself.

He must use last night as a final reminder and really concentrate, stop the big talk. Stop the flossin' and get in that gym and get nut down!

I think Roach has come out of his training prime as well BTW, with his illness i'm not sure he can get back on the road properly but i think his work has deteriorated for various reasons.

Its nothing to do with 'Team Khan'. Its Amirs own ego and buying into to that 'macho' bullshit.

He needs to learn and work within his abilities. Its like Leonard standing there and trading with Hagler because he wanted him to. Except Leonard chose the right fight for himself.
Spot on

Full of shit?? Me

At least I don't have some mad racist aganda and talking shit 99% like you, this really only Khan's 2nd loss, as for me he beat PEDerson plus that will be a N.C soon anyway.

You win some lose some it's all part of boxing the sport that I love, so you can go **** yourself you dumb clown.
