No. Marquez would pick him apart. Khan would get timed like a mutha****a.

You see, a few years back I thought old man Marquez was too small to be fighting above 135. At the time, even Nacho Beristein felt that fighting Khan was a risk. Now though, things seem very different.

Khans only chance is Marquez getting very old over night. I think seriously someone like Kell Brook would be a good fight at this stage.

No, Marquez would ruin him.

We saw what happened to Diaz and Katsidis after fighting Marquez.... they were utterly done.

In his mind he can excuse his defeats - Prescott caught him early, Lamont was a combo of PEDs and the officials, Garcia was a lucky shot.

To be outboxed, hammered all night and then stopped would end him as a fighter. Marquez is pretty much the complete package, can punch hard with both hands and has the full array of punches, and isn't bothered much about being hit.

He isn't as effective when he applies pressure as when he can stand his ground and fire, but Khan is vulnerable when he throws and his feet will put him in harm's way.

Khan hasn't fought a feinter yet either. Never mind one that can convince you that he's going to hook and then shorten the right hand and land it on the button.

Marquez TKO7 for me.

the way he lost to garcia means he needs a easy route back. The marquez fight is a huge risk and may end up as a bad KO..unless JMM suddenly gets old and passed it.

yeh Khan would have to fight a very intelligent fight to win this but I think he could beat today's JMM...maybe December would be a bit soon but after a couple more confidence-gaining bouts this is the sort of fight I'd like to see Khan in.

Timing beats Speed, Marquez is the master of timing. Size/Strength doesn't matter as Khan can't risk going inside or staying in range to use it.

Not worth taking this fight IMO, Khan's in rebuilding process, yes a massive win puts him back up there but the problem was running before even walking. Khan needs to just put together a win or two. Even fight a 10 rounder like Alexander did, doesn't have to be world title fights. Patience is a virtue.

The most intelligent fighter in the game v the least intelligent fighter in the game who is coming off a KO loss.

Nope...khan would get his head punched in. He'll wait until he's over the hill like Barrera was, then fight him, then boxing mongs/casual fans will not shut the **** up about Khan beating him. Even though anybody who watches boxing other than when pac or mayweather fight know that prime Barrera wouldn't have let khan past the 4th round.

**** NO!!! JMM would punish Khan and probably stop him. JMM outclassed Pacquiao, Khan would be easy to time. In/Out with the same 3 punch combination. I made a post a while back about Khan doing the same thing over and over again. Every time you seen him spar or on the pads it was the same thing he would do over and over again. Roach hasn't taught him anything in a good while.

Khan would want to trade with JMM like he always does, the bulked up version of JMM that fought against Pac would KO Khan and finish him off for good.

Marquez didnt wanna fight Khan when he was relevant , so whats changed ???

Marquez vs Khan wont happen IMO

I think Marquez will fight Bam Bam , if he gets past Alvarado , failing that Morales would be my next best guess
