Khan needs to go with Steward who has a track record in tall chinny fighters. (Hearns, Lewis, Wlad)

You keep on referencing this NECK shot, so let me correct what i have said previous.

Khan has a glass chin AND a glass neck.
Everyone will have glass neck considering the number of blood vessels and arteries in that area

Freddie Roach abilty to communicate is a problem, i think khan needs some help mentally, a Teddy Atlas type minus the ego

He didn't achieve much with Hatton, tbf. Although it was quite a short-lived arrangement.

Adam Booth or Fritz Sdunek would be ideal imo.

Just hope he parts amicably (something which I doubt Team Khan can do sadly).

As for who and what next?

I just hope he recognises that he isn't elite level and that its not a bad thing to come home and fight lower opposition in order to rebuild. A fight for the Euro is not a bad thing but I just can't see it happening.

Honestly, a Prescott fight makes sense now. He's badly in need of a confidence booster, he could fight him, right a wrong and promote it as the comeback. Garcia won't move up for a while so that rematch could be there.

Imagine 2013 for Khan if he fought and beat Prescott then Garcia and maybe PEDerson and ended it as unified champ again. Now thats a comeback.

A Prescott rematch makes really good sense,Lilo. Let's hope Khan goes after it.

how often do we hear the fighter blame the trainer when they get beaten?

To be fair to Khan he has probably got the thin end of the wedge here but I cannot understand why Reuben was in his corner.
Plus those shots of Khan sparring were disturbing, surely you should spar the same style you intend to fight - thats how you drill good habits in.

He was getting clobbered.

Thats not good for his long term health.

Maybe he does need a change.

and why everyone being so harsh on go getta? yes cotto would obviously do khan, but hes right shots to the point of the jaw/neck area do do a lot of damage, hes not the first guy to be almost polaxed from a shot to that area, in fact, most times a punch there doesn't result in the head snapping violently, so it looks like the guy just goes down from a "nothing shot" but its a very bad place to get hit.

Khan still has the same flaws he had when starting out as a pro. His poor footwork and wide stance, when he throws make him vulnerable to looping right hands - Maidana, Peterson, Prescott. His hands move forward before his feet, there's no balance and if you time it right like Garcia did the other night then he's a knockout waiting to happen. This isn't even taking into account his lack of inside work.

There's no doubting his talent but the flaws are still there and by this stage in his career you'd think he'd have them ironed out by now.
