    khan is just not durable enough to compete with canelo, no matter how much faster he is. the difference in strength is going to look ridiculous the first time khan tries to tie up and canelo rag dolls him around the ring. canelo doesnt even have to try and time khan, he can just punch whenever khan punches and khans top heavy body will be all over the place from any shot that lands anywhere. khan is not the type of puncher that can earn the respect of a strong kid like canelo, he will walk right through khans rehe****d flurries and lift him off the ground with body punches.

    precisely. Khan just doesn't have enough pop, even at 140. At 147 he is featherfisted. At 155 he will be barely noticeable to a seasoned pro like Canelo.

    I remember when Khan claimed LWW was a problem and he would be at his best at 147lbs.

    Change the record team Khan.

    I wonder if Amir will finally bulk up his chicken legs and actually give himself a firm platform on which to receive a heavy shot.

    It'd be hilarious if it turned out out Khan was an iron chinned middleweight who'd just been badly affected by severe weight draining all these years.

    i took that into account when i thought about how the extra weight would help or hinder khan. khan has never showed signs of weak conditioning when fighting for 12 rds. weak jaw, yes, bad conditioning, not that i can recall. if he was fighting too far below his best weight, his stamina would be terrible, along with his low punch resistance.

    Mayweather rocked Cotto worse than Canelo did. Either Canelo is an over rated puncher , or he and Cotto were wearing pillows. It looked to me like they were wearing pillows.

    Khan is better hope its another pillow fight.

    Funny he says this because Khan looked heavier against Algieri and looked slower too. I think heavier is actually worse for him.

    What Virgil Hunter is really saying "Khan needs a payday. We don't care what weight class it's in and we don't care if he has zerro chance. Please anyone, give us a payday"

    Khan will be iron-chinned at 155. That will be the myth going into the fight. Once Khan is knocked out in 4 rounds we will once again know what we always knew.

    Khan's trademark hand-speed was noticeably diminished against Algieri. This jump in weight figures to amplify that deterioration.

    It's was a off night, fact is vs Collazo came into ring 162lbs vs Chris Khan came in 155lbs.. Go figure.. Khan had a 12 week long camp for Chris and they cut too much weight or just over cooked Khan..
