khan himself in an interview says he only walks around at like 10st 3ibs.

so is he really struggling at the weight.

1.5% body fat is a load of shit, its near impossible.

Didnt he say last week he could drop down a weight class?

Khan looks weight drained to me

Khan trains very hard and makes the weight no problem but its taken something from him,you can see from Khans body he is packing more muscle

So, should he test the waters at light welter? Starting in December.
If his body fat is 1.5% then he's in fact a corpse and we never realised.

That would explain the performance in his last fight.

He done a great impression of a corpse in that one.

thats a load of bollocks about his body fat. its not humanly possible for a person to be 1.5% body fat. he would be dead. i would say that he is 8% at the least

If his body fat is that low he would struggle in the later stages of a fight as his body would have no energy reserves to utilise. Luckily for him the later stages of a fight are not really a problem !

His problem is that he takes the shots flush, full power. He does not ride them or roll with them, so he gets hurt. All his fights have been executions or wars, no real learning episodes ( Gomez Limond he learnt a lot but at great expense ). I think FW has known about the 'chin' for a while and is why he matched him so cautiously.

Khan saying he has 1.5% body fat just proves that he is getting bad advice

Khans is more ripped everytime he steps in the ring

Khans a muscular young lad

I believe he was weight drained - no one crumbles that easy unless something is physically wrong with them

Pacman got starched by a guy with a record of with a 11,4,4 record

pacman is one of the best p4p fighters on the planet in 2008

weight draining destroys punch resistance

Bollocks. He does not have problems making weight by todays standards. Infact, he made it as comfortably as he ever has against Prescott according to him.

Can you really see him taking on Bradley after his impressive performance last night? Hatton?

He does not have problems making weight, and he'll get destroyed even worse by bigger men.
