Default Amir Khan is still one of the most influential/wealthy boxers right now......agree?

He's been featured in GQ magazine, got deals with Maximuscle, Reebok, Sky Sports to name a few, and he increases ticket sales whenever he's fighting. He's looked up to by youngsters in UK and all over the world, he's an ambassador of sport, and he's done a lot for charities in UK and ****stan. Putting aside his last couple fights, he's still one of the most popular boxers right now!

Dunno about popular. He probably is one of the most well known boxers out there today, I'll give him that. In terms of wealth? I'm pretty sure Mayweather's wealth exceeds his by miles.

All very true, there are a lot of haters out there who enjoy seeing im lose because he talks a lot of smack, but its all bravado, what do you want from the guy to say he's gonna lose, Amir will always be a popular fighter in terms of viewers because he brings alot of excitement which cannot be said for many of the leading PPV fighters out there right now

annoys the hell out of me, but have to respect a fighter who fights all. 3 years in a row he's been in atleast 1 FOTY candidate

He's hardly glass jawed. When was the last time he was knocked out by a shot on the chin? Apart from Prescott, he hasn't been. Rewatch the 4th round against Garcia and you'll see he took some decent shots on the chin.

yes he was hyped up since he was a phenom and won a silver at 17 years old. He has cashed in on it well.

But he is not living up to the hype in the ring.

And for the people who say he's a "big mouth", "****y" and "arrogant" you just have to actually meet him to realise he's a down to earth guy. 1 of the Australian Olympic boxers said that Khan was meeting fans and signing autographs up until past 12am. He's always got plenty time for his fans, which you have to respect.

Nobody denying that/this.
But he is one more chance away from that all going away.

I agree. He get's more headlines and press reports than so many fighters, hence the reason why a Mayweather fight was touted so much. I read Mayweather's timeline now and then and always come across comments about Khan and him.
