Default Amir Khan weigh in physique analysis

We've heard about his skinny legs, underdeveloped neck muscles and unproportional upper body. Lets analyse Khans body at this weigh in compared to other weigh ins to see what Virgil Hunter has changed.

Side by side pics would be great.
Your thoughts?

Come on dude, if you're gonna make a thread, at least put the pics up yourself.

Nevertheless, here's a comparison.

Garcia Fight:

Molina Fight:

Khan' faced looked very drawn in the Garcia weigh-in for whatever reason. His faced seemed fuller in the Molina one but then again, he didn't seem very open eyed and alert in the post weigh-in interviews today.

This all means nothing anyway. He looks more or less the same physically.

Lazy ass OP. He did look pretty drained during the Garcia fight. Looks like he lost some definition in his back...although it looks BRAODER. Biggest plus I see with his current physique are his legs. Not shown in this thread though.

Couple pints of water, nutrition shake and a nice big dinner and he should good to go!

Will be waking up in the night to drink as well..

Just needs to accept when he moves to 147 his fight night weight will never be more than 153 and will need to be carefull when/if he fights guys who put on 15+ pounds after the weigh in

Funny how people are commentating about how his body is looking like it's a bodybuilding show.

His body looks the same the main thing isn't about his body or him being "drained.

It's about him not getting hit with huge shots that will drop him. Boxing isn't about getting hit and surviving it's about HIT and DON'T get hit.

The problem with Khan is the length of his neck. That neck was built to get knocked the **** out.

I really fear for him if he's planning to move up to 147. He hasn't got the physical strength to take on guys like Ortiz who enter the ring at over 160 and he lacks the frame required to bulk up without losing his speed.

Some people act like he's massive at 140 but he's not at all. When he moves up i really don't see him handling punches from bigger men very well.

Khans body always looks the same at the weigh in...

How he looks once he rehydrates is what changes..

With Tabares his stayed very lean... With Ariza he looked bigger and less lean (better)
Think it will be inbetween this time around

He'll probably look different from the Garcia fight -- where he was a bit too top heavy -- but he'll be feeling the same. He always comes in good condition.

S&C had nothing to do with his loss to Garcia, its not like he got knocked out late in the fight after gassing.

Is Ariza back with him for this fight?

Nah, Hunter's got his own team that he overseas things with. He's a bit anal about how strength and conditioning is used to create a boxer's body.

Who cares as long as he's in fight shape, thats all that matters. Needs to show improvement with technique and defense. We shall find out tonight.
