    An entertaining fighter. In his prime, with his hand speed and punch selection, was a tricky fight at world level. His fight with Maidana was epic.

    Remember Maidana wore horse hair gloves(can’t remember exact name ) for the Khan fight that Mayweather had banned him from wearing. Not many brits who aren’t Heavyweights (Fury/Lennox) can crack America.

    The most manufactured boxer in british boxing history.

    Almost all GB olympic boxing medalists don't even get 1% of the fame, press, and sponsorship deals Khan got

    Yet despite getting everything on a plate. Like headlining on terrestrial TV on prime time saturday ITV against bums as the main event for years ahead of world champions in world title fights on the same bill. Like getting a undeserved world title shot against a weak feather fisted champ in a division hed never even fought in his own backyard.

    Despite having the best trainers in the world, best facilities, best promoters. constant press attention.

    Despite always having an inflated rating with the world boxing organisations. especially the WBC

    Despite constantly getting shots he didn't deserve, and mostly cherry picking feather fisted or past it opponents he was huge favourite in

    He still... hit the deck approx 25 times, got knocked out or lost countless times, chicken danced countless times. never won a world title fight for about 12 years. Never won a belt in another division. etc

    For such a manufactured product.. he really had everything on a plate given to him to become a great fighter, Yet he became one of the most ridiculed fighters in the sport, Constantly mocked for his glass jaw, losses against cherry picked opponents he was huge favourite in, wanking on skype, lies and ducking kell brook for a decade and so on.

    he overachieved on paper, because he was such a manufactured fighter. In reality, in a sport of 17 weight classes and 4 world champs per weight, his achievements at the start of his career were very average, and the second half of his career he really was an absolute laughing stock.

    The highlights of Amir Khans career

    1. Getting KO'd by Breidis Prescott in 50 seconds
    2. The whole Danny Garcia event (Angel Garcia mentally destroying him, Danny KO'ing him)
    3. Quitting like a coward from a leg punch by Terence Crawford (when he even had 5 minutes to recover)
    4. Getting caught masturbating on Skype
    5. Accusing Anthony Joshua of cheating on his wife
    6. Getting KO'd brutally by Canelo Alvarez looking like he was dead on the floor
    7. Ducking Kell Brook like the plague using every lie and excuse possible for 10 years
    8. The embarrassing obsession and non stop pursuit of Floyd Mayweather
    9. Losing to the mediocre Lamont Peterson and blaming it on a man in a hat
    10. Lying about Sparring Andre Ward
    11. Getting destroyed by Kell Brook in a one sided beatdown after ducking him for 10 years after suddenly becoming interested him when he was shot.

    Don't let that go to your head though.

    Great viewing.

    Khan comes across a nice fella to me. Hasn't got a brain cell but never means any malice.

    Does loads for charity too (actually does, not just says he does like Fury).
