    I don't think anyone is ever going to suggest that Amir Khan is, or was, an all-time great.

    He did have a very good world class career, exciting fights with never a dull moment, earned tens of millions, became a household name, international popularity, world class wins on the biggest stages in boxing. He did well.

    You have to be joking. This level of trolling just isn't funny.

    No doubt. He's my number 2 ATG after Broner. My top 3: Broner, Khan and Colbert.

    No, I don't think he ever was even after beating Malignaggi and Maidana in 2010, The Ring had him at number 2 behind Bradley on their end of year ratings.
