Default Michael Gomez - "Ill Knock Khan Out"

Michael Gomez: ďIíll knock Khan outĒ

By Andrew Wake: Manchesterís Irish born warrior Michael Gomez has turned up the heat ahead of his lightweight clash with Amir Khan next month by saying heís going to knock out the 2004 Olympic silver medalist.

ďI canít see any result other than me knocking Amir Khan out.Ē Said Gomez ďIím not stupid, I know Iím gonna have to knock him out to win.

ďIíve got to get through the first four rounds, because thatís when his speed is telling, but Iíve noticed that after those four rounds his speed dies off and thatís when itís gonna be my fight.

ďIím gonna keep the pressure on and keep him working in the early rounds, but leave plenty in the tank for the late rounds and I canít see any other outcome than a win for Michael Gomez.Ē

ďOn the 22nd of June, the day after the fight, every single household in the country will know the name of Michael Gomez. The man who beat Amir Khan.Ē

Many people were surprised when the 30 year old former British and WBU super-featherweight champion got the call to be Khanís next opponent but Gomez feels certain as to the reasons behind Sports Network picking him.

He said: ďI didnít look too good against Baz Carey in my last fight and I was shocking against Carl Johannesson, so you can see what Frank ******ís thinking. Heís thinking that Iím finished, that Iím shot, but come the night of the fight heís going be seeing dťjŗ vu and remembering what I did to Alex Arthur.

ďWhen Frank sees me at the weigh in, heís gonna swallow his tongue Ďcause let me tell you, Iím a massive lightweight. I lost my power getting down to super-featherweight but at this weight Iím gonna be a lot bigger and hit a lot harder.Ē

The colourful Mancuniun, who has won 24 of 35 victories by stoppage, admits the fight has already got him excited and says the prospect of defeating Khan has reignited a flame that burnt out a long time ago.

ďWhen I went to the Arena, something happened that hasnít for a long time Ė I got chills. I hugged Bobby Rimmer (his trainer) and told him ĎIím gonna do thisí. Iím not sure if something Iíd died in me before, but it was the first time Iíd felt like that in ages. I see this as a massive opportunity to make my name.Ē

He added: ďA lot of fighters are beaten by the occasion when they fight Amir Khan, but that will not bother me. Iíve been in the position before where the whole crowd is against me and Iím not the star but hey, I thrive on it so bring it on!Ē

Some corners of the boxing fraternity have already poured scorn on the bout and labelled it as another case of Khan taking on an opponent far removed from their prime years, but Gomezís trainer Bobby Rimmer prefers to views things another way.

He said: ďLetís look at it this way, if youíre looking to try and test one of the upcoming stars then who better than Michael Gomez?

ďGomez has got everything. Heís got a tremendous heart, heís very courageous and heís also a very smart boxer when he needs to be. Heís 31 on the day of the fight and he turned pro when he was 17, so heís been around a long time. Heís been there, done it and bought the shirt.

ďAmir Khan thinks that Michael wonít be as fit as him but Michael will be fitter. We know that itís gonna be a torid affair but Michaelís ready for it. He knows what itís like to get hurt, to get off the floor and go onto win.

ďOn the night, heíll be so fired up heíll run into that ring like he always does. Heíll be in there that fast, the announcer wonít have even finished saying his name.Ē

Many questions hang over both Gomez and Amir Khan and while many are likely to remain after their June 21st meeting, something that is certain about the North-west rivals is that they will both give their all in a battle that is sure to bloody, gruelling and enthralling.

Look out Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay... Gomez has a new career.

But seriously, this fight shouldn't be allowed.

If he was 5 years younger mabye.

I wish Khan would step it up a little. I'm tired of watching him fight midgets, pensioners, PE teachers and binmen.

I hope he does, wont happen though.

Ive just read an interview by Khan on the Gomez fight and he is actually tallking as though it is a title eliminater fight

If he is actually serious of fighting for a title he needs to fight a live LIGHTWEIGHT fighter who can actually crack an egg.

Plus i know Thaxton is recovering from the cut, but why does Khan state that he is past Thaxton and doesnt need to fight him and then goes to sign a fight with Gomez
