Default Amir Kahn - Overated

Does anyone agree with me hes fought no one of class yet and people are over the moon with him, dont get me wrong I hope he does well but think all the world lightweight champions of today of beat him.

I think Frank ****** is going to make all the money he can out of him then send him to the US and then hell get beat.

Amir Khan - for my money - is always going to be a vulnerable fighter, but he does posess world class speed and I think, a fair dig. While he may never be the best in whichever weight division he happens to be in, I think he may well be able to blow away several highly respected fighters.

In the press he is overrated, on here he is underrated

The truth is somewhere in the middle. Why do people like to go to such extremes? He is a very good fighter, he's coming along slowly and seems to be improving every fight

We could do with seeing him against different types of fighters, and bigger punchers. But from what I've seen he is easily second in Europe, behind only Romanov, which is a great start for a 21 year old

Give him a break

With Khan not everything revolves around winning world titles for me.

Just in terms of his own development as a boxer and to clear up the doubts over his questionable chin I'd like to see him face different types of fighters including bigger punchers just like YOU said.

So you're going out on a limb and saying an experienced world champion at light welter would be able to beat a young lightweight prospect?

the fruits who thought Hatton waa gonna batter Mayweather are the same ones who fall for the Khan hype, and the Audrey hype before that. You just have to pity those fools.
