Because he is a Warren fighter.
It is not really Khan fault...
Thats media for you...
SMW Darrin Morris, I think he died in 2001 or something and was promoted twice in the six months after his death.
I wonder if we were all in Khan's position, would we not have made the same choices he has made? I, for one, at his age, might have made a fool of myself. I like Khan. He is OK, deep down. He is just playing the game, but he does it with some decency, all in all. Sure he's no saint...but why should we expect him to be? Time will tell whether he is a fraud or not. If he keeps on fighting spent forces that were never that forceful in the first place, as some Warren fighters tend to do, fans will turn against him. But as long as his next opponent is better than the last, I for one am happy. The kid's got to learn...
I dont blame khan 1 bit its the media and all the people on here who hype him up to be something he isnt. fair enough he has potential but thats all it is just now potential.
I' ve never heard Khan say he was bigger than Jesus...He just plays along...you know what celebrity culture is like in Britain...he would have to act like a weirdo or like a total recluse to avoid its grasp; let's hope that some of the hype is justified - it would be good for boxing in this country!
I totally agree with you if he can fullfil his potential, which i really hope he does, it can only be great for british boxing.
Ultimately who cares what the WBO say their just as crooked as all the other governing bodies. Until there is a unified non profit making organisation the ratings aren't worthy of wiping ass!
He gets KTFO brutally my good man.
Khan at number 10? he should get a title shot by this time next year then i guess? At least after that we wont have to hear about him again.
yeah he went from 7->5 in the rankings despite having died from meningitis.
The sad thing is a win over Limond probably puts him well into the top10.
Let's look at the good side of things. In a couple of bouts, maybe after Earl then Thaxton, he'll be set to fight Katsidis!
then we should be consoled that it might be by a British fighter...!
right! And then it's up to him...no amount of hype can save him if he doesn't have it!...but if he swims, he swims!
