It would be nice for Khan to keep quiet about his dellusions of grandeur for a change.

You don't have to be Quincy to bloody well work out that all Khans opponents thus far happen to be in the 'feather-fisted' or light punching category. It seems to me fairly obvious that there is still a concern about his chin from his own team.

At present, Hatton would fluster and probably dismantle Khan. Probably take a good few shots coming in, but defence is certainly the main weakness of Khan, and Hatton would do damage to him.

Not going to happen, so a mute point. Khan is getting better though!

Khan is going about the right way to been the next Audley in terms of popularity. He should respect Hatton because Hattons paid his dues.

I think Khan is related to Bunce, he can talk an awful lot of cack. I think Hatton should call his bluff an say forget next year lets do it this summer then put him on his arse.

Khan is geting very delluded considering he has not beaten anyone of note to date and I doubt he will by next year.

I'm fast becoming a non fan after singing his praises for the last two years.

Khan shouts his mouth off then hides behind his people when people start shouting back. He is a great talent but apart from his bottle when it comes to fighting a guy with a good ko record why has he never faced one?

I think all the money and fame coming at such a young age has changed Khan - I suppose thats inevitable to a degree but it is a real shame.

It was reported that he earned in the region of 2 million over the last 12 months alone. Boxing is a dangerous sport and boxers can have short careers so I don't begrudge him his wealth.

What I do find a little distasteful though is why Khan seems to feel its necessary to tell everyone about his expensive watches and cars, etc. Only recently I read that he is having a sports and sauna complex built at his home including a swimming pool with a boxing glove mosaic and his initials in the tiles - fair enough if thats what he wants to spend his money on but why tell the media? You don't seem to hear other high profile wealthy boxers like Calzaghe and Hatton boasting of their latest acquisitions. Its such a contrast to the humble young man who did us proud at the Olympics.

if he is being asked about it then he will tell what he spends his on.
Amir is popular with the media and the media love him were as no disrespect to hatton the average boxing fan knew **** all about him before the PBF fight and Calzaghe has only just got the respect he has deserved from the media so u cant blame AK talking about his money that he is making and what he does with it. PBF does the same we dont see anyone ripping the shit out of him, i know PBF is established and all time great but people on here like to make a big issue when it comes to AK.
i dont see anyone ripping in to

Are you joking? People rip into PBF all the time for his antics. Khan defintely does not want to attempt to emulate that part of Floyds persona if he wished to remain popular.

Khan doesnt go around telling "everyone" what hes doing with his money. People want to know everything and anything Khan does. When he bought a car as birthday present for himself it becomes news. How do you know he's building a sports and sauna complext built in his home? You read about it on some website because you're intrested in knowing the little Khan details.

His interview on TV about St. Clair before and after the fight have been mature, he carried himself well and was pretty modest. Yet you all make him to be some rude arrogant spoiled rich kid. Besides he does numerous charities apart from opening the community gym.
Specifically can you refer to any TV interview s which suggest hes turned into arrogant prick? I think not. Most of it probably comes from some website interview.

But I see your point, Khan should've checked with all of us if it was morally ok to say that he wants to fight Ricky one day when hes ready and Hattons still around.
