He's not the fighter he was built up to be. People were comparing him along previous names like, prince naseem, SRL and ODLH claiming he's the only one capable of beating FMJ, he's not as talented as any of those fighters. His hand speed is the only great thing about him he's mediocre on all other levels.

Compare him to those greats??? Really who? People were comparing him to them ONLY when he had turned Pro in light of his Olympic achievement at being only 17 years old. When he was knocked down by Limond and knocked out by Prescott most people including myself thought he was European level at best. They claimed he would loose to any legit world level fighter. But he proved us wrong being a holder of two world title belts.

In fact, for the last several years he has been very underrated in spite of beating some very good opposition in Kotelnik, Judah, Malignaggi, Maidana and losing a controversial decision to a drug cheat Peterson. I'd say, that given that he was completely written off post Prescott loss he has done well.

Leadlefthook just named 4 world class fighters he beat.Doesnt seem afraid to fight top men on a regular basis.Would have liked to see him avenge the Prescott loss,now feel the same about Garcia,though it may be beyond him.But he must be dedicated,being prepared to up sticks and move not once but twice,not nearer but farther away.
I think he was clearly beaten by Peterson,but insisted it was a hometowner.Think he should have kept quiet,but at least he wanted the return.On the whole,I like him.A British world champion,a silver medallist,generally decent guy who fights who they put in front of him.Good luck.

i'm talking about after the olympics and after his first couple of championship fights. barry maguigan was saying he was the next ODLH or some bull****.
i'm not calling him a bad fighter, like allot of prospects who turn pro there is much hype behind them, khan is no exception, he didn't live up to the expectations people originally had for him thats all i'm saying. even after he was a world champ ppl were claiming he'd give floyd hell and do all kinds of dammage to marquez and co. Allot of it was coming out of his own mouth.

- Exciting to watch
- Vulnerable
- Arguably the fastest hands p4p in the sport today
- Poor inside game
- Not a huge amount of ring smarts, can be dragged into a war seeming to prove that he has a chin & can s****.. when instead he could utilise his advantages instead.
- Should avoid talking to the media, chats a lot of ****

oh.. & England.

England.

Some of the fastest hands ive ever seen. Entertaining (in and out of the ring).

Imagine if he had ultra KO power!.
