Lucas is a stylistic nightmare for Khan

Khan can try to box circles.Lucas will be waiting oh so patiently for him to drop his hands.

God almighty. I like Amir but people in the first 5 rows are going to be fishing bits of his face out of their pints.

Lucas applies waaaay to much pressure for Amir to stand up to it. IMO
Arguably Matthysse punches harder than his compatriot Maidana & has better fundamentals.

Amir takes alot of shots & would not have the punch it takes to make a Lucas type respect him.
Again... IMO

I'd pick LM by stoppage mid Rds.

Matthysse lays him out and early. Khan cant take a punch, and everyone knows it now. Hell, he fought a bum in his last fight and looked shook as hell. Gonna end up like Audley.

Matthysse would actually kill Khan.

The fight to be made at 140 to decide the #1 is Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysse, without a doubt. These two are clearly the best in the division, are both on a great run of form and are with the same promotor. The fight makes perfect sense and has to happen.

Only way Khan beats him is if he learns how to survive close range. He can't maintain boxing and moving constantly for the whole duration of the fight. It's next to impossible and he'll drain himself of energy (like he did against Peterson and Maidana). Lucas will be in his face all night and will drag him into the trenches. Khan, during those moments, just needs to learn how to survive and not sustain too much punishment.
Agreed.

Khan has size and brilliant handspeed. He is not..... and I'll say it for the nine-hundredth time.... some master boxer. Moreover, he's not especially difficult to hit.

Lucas figures him out and stops him inside the distance.



ps And before you assholes start saying I'm jumping on the bandwagon after the Matthyssee-Dallas fight, wrong-- I didn't see the KO and I have been predicting that Lucas would stop Khan for MONTHS.
Exactly. I'm still surprised when people hold so much stock in Khan. Those that say he's still young and can still do this and that... I think, fighting-wise he's pretty old. He's been in some wars, been rocked a lot of times and he has changed his preparation and fight tactics on more than one occasion. By this age, he should be honing his style and looking to perfect it. Against Garcia he adopted a downright idiotic game plan and was KO'd. Badly. The way I see it, he's back to square one. He is where he was against Prescott, except he has aged. Yes he's in better shape etc, but that means nothing when you can't implement it.

Amir was hurt by Peterson so I think its safe to say Matthysse can hurt thus guy easy.
