Khan is faster.
You'd still pay to eat Faryal's halal bootyhole and you know it.
No, I really wouldn't. She's really not even worth a grow n' tug in my eyes. Glam runway style chicks don't really do it for me. I like down to earth looking chicks:
Bryce Dallas Howard
Sarah Polley (still trying to work this one out in my head)
Of course, there are exceptions:
Why do I get a feeling that you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to show off this list?
Linares skills is also more flash than substance. He does things which frankly takes too much movement and energy and look flashy rather than keeping it simple and achieving the same results.
To dodge a right hand, Linares will beaitifully slips to the left at some crazy angle, sneak in a half left uppercut half straight left, beautiful shot. Meanwhile his opponent deals with the exact same shot by parying the right hand and landing his own clean right hand. Much simpler, same results, if not more effective.
That's why he's always looked great but struggles like hell with guys like crolla and campbell.
Anyone seriously think Crolla would even trouble Khan in the slightest? He would get the Devon, Judah, Malignagi, Collazo treatment.
Both ADD AF, supremely gifted, ballsy warriors, blitzkrieg fast. Khan usually starts OD'ing on Ritalin somewhere before round 7 or 8, Linares skin usually lets him down a little after Khan OD's.
Yes, there is a hand speed advantage for Khan and yes Linares has more papery epidermis - but people are understating the primary difference: that Khan has B+ level boxing skills and Linares has at minimum straight A.
Id give Khan a B+ for offensive skill but overall? I do agree Linares is on another level altogether in the skills department.
Levels. Khan would stop Linares in 3 rounds.
Why would linares survive any better than Paulie, Judah, or Alexander? All fast guys with good boxing skills?
Linares is Crolla and Campbell level. How do I know this? Because he was h2h with them. Meanwhile khan blitzing guys a level above those guys. Khan would blitz linares.
Nobody has ever outboxed Amir Khan. Koelnik and Salita (UKRANIAN!!!!). Were completely outclassed as were the guys you mentioned above. Even runners like Peterson and Algeri knew they had to juice up and fight him to win. Crawford wont outbox him either.
Linares was a very good finesse-featherweight, who has been manhandled as he stepped up and fought guys his size. No comparison
This. I can’t believe somebody is actually comparing Linares to Khan. Khan is way more talented and skilled than Linares.
Khan’s biggest problem is his inactivity. I remember Hunter being very frustrated with Khan, since he couldn’t get Khan to commit to 2 fights a year and said the long layoffs would catchup with him despite his amazing talent.
