Molina's corner stops it immediately after the end of the 10th round. Khan wins by TKO

Khan's such a douche...I knew he'd break his neck to call out Garcia after the fight. Freakin' loser...

Bernstein said it best: "an appropriate performance."

Lol. Still no love for the king? C, he's supposed to call him out!! Of course he should have 'broken his neck' to call out Prescott after that loss too and didn't. Oh well. =)

Night.

Khan looked good but he better shut up before Garcia folds him like a chair again.

FAR too soon to see how WELL Khan is listening to Hunter.

Hope his big head keeps this in perspective.

I was pretty impressed with Amir Khan.

Immediately, you notice that his footwork and coordination has improved. His stance seems less wide and his steps are quicker and shorter, which is allowing him to keep his balance. Virgil seems to have done a great job here.

Additionally, the sequences where he fought Molina with his back to the ropes and up close, he showed some of those Andre Ward moves (creating a little separation and going in with short hooks and getting low to guard against the body shots).

Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of Khan 2.0 is that he doesn't lunge off balance when he tries to put punches together. The chin has better protection and isn't out there for a phantom punch to connect with.

If there's one criticism, it's that I wanted to see some more body work from him. With Khan's hand speed, he should be able to land the spear jab to the opponent's body at will. Had he focused on that, I think he could have gotten Molina out of there a few rounds earlier.

So far, it seems Virgil Hunter is doing a great job of getting Amir Khan back to where he needs to be. He's a talented guy with an enjoyable style, and Hunter may well be able to get the best out of Khan 2.0.

Also, I believe that if this trend continues, when the rematch does happen, all of Angel Garcia's dumb fuck grandstanding won't stop his kid from getting the dog shit beaten out of him by Amir Khan.

max put it best tbh. why shouldnt he call garcia out, but personally i think he needs another 2-3 fights to really settle in with virgil. its funny when people dont call people out there ducking everybody, when khan calls out everybody nobody listens.
