Default Re: Ricky Hatton v Amir Khan

well we havent seen khan in his prime yet so its hard to say

i was never a fan of hatton nor khan as many know, i can see hatton eating some serious leather in this fight, he struggled with fast hands and was open to shots thrown straight down the pipe and he is extremely overrated, tough one still cant decide as im typing this, hatton never possessed proper heavy hands so i think a disciplined khan could take this over 12, it would be a close one though

^^^
People are missing the point that a 'prime' Khan is a disciplined Khan (Kotelnyk)

There was a time Hatton was scoring KOs against mexicans using body shots. Khan has a lot of skill but his major flaw is punch resistance. The Hatton left hook to the body would take so much out of Khan. It took an arguably prime Mayweather 10 rounds to stop Hatton, with Hatton being mainly the agressor. Do we think Khan can withstand more than 10 rounds of Hatton's pressure, or will he get Ricky otu of there quicker than Mayweather did? I really can't see many, if any, scenarios where Khan comes out on top.

most decent fighters did, ie magee, collazo, urango, khan is better than all those

his body shots are overrated because of the castillo win and his stoppages against lesser fighters with body shots, some of those including the castillo one looked questionable to say the least (odh v bhop)

LMAO! Khan groupies are unbelievable.

They still defend this bum by saying "He hasn't hit his prime yet."

Hate to break it to ya, but Khan has been IN HIS PRIME for the last 2-3 years.

He's just simply not that good.

Anybody who thinks a guy who depends ONLY on speed isn't in his prime at nearly 26 years old is pretty dense.

When Khan's speed leaves, he'll have NOTHING to fall back on. He has no technical skills, or intelligence to speak of.

We obv rate Khan differently but for me he would be the 3rd best fighter Hatton has faced.

I'm just giving the Khan side here BTW, as I think Hatton is getting so many picks as a kneejerk reaction to Khan's loss.
