Default Should Khan risk a fight with Juan Marquez in Dec??

Seems like Marquez priced himself out of a 4th fight with Pacman, and needs to fight before the year is out.

Could Khan be an option?? Should Team Khan put in a offer?? Could Khan beat JMM??

I think Khan's size and speed could play a big factor and I think this is a winnable fight but at a risk, a win vs JMM puts Khan's stock back up.

In a word Darni,,, No, Khan hasn't got the skill to handle Marquez.

It's too risky. JMM is too great of a counter puncher and Pacquiao's speed and power certainly didn't faze him in any way so I doubt Khan's would.

Khan could win, but I doubt it. & Eid Mubarak bro.

Knowing Khan he will fight anyone. But, coming off of a brutal defeat Khan will effectively end his career if he takes on a fighter like Marquez. Khan needs at least 2 easy fights to work on his weaknesses.

Khan has certain attributes to be able to beat him, but weather he can employ them is a different matter totally.

He should take some 8rounder on an undercard somewhere before fighting Garcia early next year if he is lucky.

This is the million pound question..

To be honest I don't think Khan would go to war with him, I think Khan would show him alot of respect and try to box him trying to keep at range and using his reach ad and speed, workrate to win a decision.

But with Khan's mindset anything can happen.

Even with Marquez clearly aging, he still has more than enough to deal with Khan I feel. Probably by stoppage too
