    I always hear this criticism by haters of khan yet they support fighters like froch? It doesn't make sense to me? He does say a lot of stupid things kind of like Victor Ortiz mainly cause both are brain dead. But is he more arrogant then the likes of froch,naz,eubank etc why is he so disliked by the Brits? I remember loads people in the crowd supporting Barrera over him if it was good old Ricky vs Barrera that day you wouldn't have so many supporting barrera.

    It's not because he's arrogant.

    It's because he's extremely annoying.

    Confidence tends to be mistaken as arrogance by some short-tempered people who can't tolerate what certain people say. I've heard an known many who've met him in person and nobody had anything bad to say about him. He's a genuine, decent guy like many other boxers but things can be misunderstood sometimes. You have to say crazy things to hype up an upcoming fight too, ya know?

    And then there are idiots who just plain hate the guy lol.

    If a boxer doesn't have confidence or co.ckiness then they're in the wrong business.

    im a brit and i don't hate Khan. but to be honest, i don't 'hate' any fighters. As I've said before on here, i find it strange that people can get so emotionally invested in guys they've never met, who put a lot of effort and skill into a sport they supposedly love. I tend to just enjoy fighters styles rather than giving a f*** about their personality- really couldn't care less about that aspect.

    Froch maybe hated by some ,but loved by most, while khan only has his weak paqi fans and he's hated by pretty much anybody ,but paqis.

    Because he is Muslim and from ****stan, which makes him a piece of **** to most white British people.

    We don't like to see a paqi do well we prefer to see them in shops and taxis not lifting medals and belts

    He's generally loved, defended and appreciated. The only time he started getting some heat is recently because of his fight with Groves.
