Of course it'll work against a smaller, feather fisted fighter who isn't very good.

Let's see Khan against a live opponent again. He'll fall to bits. Amir is using Floyd as his template, but fact is Khan is nowhere near as talented, poised or flat out hard as Floyd is.

I found the Behind The Ropes show embarrassing to be honest.
I knew it would be, so I didn't watch it.

Having a build up show for such a shit mismatch is daft.

Come on, that's just being ignorant. That's just a lot of personal feelings on your end, but I'm sure if Hunter felt that way, he wouldn't have bothered.

I don't see any 'Floyd template' here at all, if you're going by what you saw on BTR. He was clearly learning something and that was by what we see, a clip that shows us barely anything, and I don't quite understand how it's embarrassing.

Khan will stop him late on, probably from body shots. I wouldnt have said behind the ropes was embarassing he just came over really eager in the small sections we saw with Hunter.

Personal feelings?! Get ****ed! That's your personal feelings assuming any negativity towards Khan can't possibly be boxing related. Ignorant? Moi? Again, get ****ed Laz, thought we were past this!

He isn't that good, get over it. This fight is a joke, again, get over it. Still love you though!

'Floyd template' I don't mean stylistically, althogh it's clear to see Amor was referring to Floyd's more negative displays. And I stand by it; Khan does not have the ability or intelligence to morph into a negative stylist.

Flea I think you are right. Some things that Hunter was teaching Khan seemed so alien and confusing to him. Not just the technique and skills, but also the mentality to execute a negative style.

But Khan is at least trying to give himself the best chance of achieving in this sport so good luck to him......

Mhm. Virgil's got his work cut out. I don't think Khan's gonna' look that good this Saturday (improvements/changes wise), and once he's back in there with a decent opponent, he'll revert back to the normal Amir we know.

But on the positive side, he's picked a trainer who's taking a hard-line approach in correcting his flaws. That move, at least, as been a good one.

Im still not convinced that Khan can follow a game plan whether it be offensive or defensive.

Yes lads, this is my line of thinking.

These are my personal feelings now; I want him to fail miserably from now on

Won't be this handpicked sham of a fight though.

Son of a..

I reckon Molina's a lot tougher of a cookie than you imagine.

We shall see! I see from that point of view, but I can see the chance of him becoming more technically sound. Time will tell, and when I'm right (as always, I must say ), be sure to drop me a tweet.

You know me; I roll with evidence.

Watched a bit of him. Completely unspectacular.

Padded record. Barely fought anyone of note.

Smaller. Can't punch.

Hopefully you see why I'm completely underwhelmed.

So when people say "He will revert back to his old ways" he's only been recently slugging because of the "bad chin" accusations, but he knows himself that this fight is his last chance, so only he can **** it up now by boxing stupid.

The stuff we saw on the ropes was 3 weeks into a 8 week camp so of course you see a Khan having some trouble taking the new stuff in.

People can say what they want, Khan does have the ability to box safe, its just going to take time for him to fully become custom to that mindset and mode, but we should see signs of this happening sat night.

And to be fair, exactly the sort of mid ranged opponent that 99% of all fighters who have been sparked out in their previous contest would pick for their next fight
