Speaking of doing a lot of talking, remember the time you issued an open challenge to a bare knuckle fight with anyone from fighthype at the May Ortiz presser in NY and then didnt show up?

Khan is doing a lot of talking but in no way do i think he's getting a head of himself. He's being realistic in saying he isnt ready for Mayweather yet but that he thinks he will be in 2-3 fights time. For me thats bang on. Khan is improving every single fight and looks like he's just one big fight away from making that step up to the elite and stardom. For me Khan is the best prospect boxing has at the minute the man has everything, electirc hands, power in both, good footwork and a good chin (yes you read that right a good chin). I can see him cleaning out the 140, moving up to 147 for Mayweather and catching him at the end of his career and then again moving up to 154, he's big enough and has a long enough reach to do well in the 154 division.


Self-promotion is something that Bradley and few other fighters need to learn. By simply stating, "this guy's scared, blah blah blah"...doesn't work nowadays. Khan is preparing himself for a showdown, though it may be a pipe dream. As far as him moving up to 154, it may be a bad idea. Corrales was tall for his weight, but the more he moved up in wieght, the worse he performed. So Khan, may want to hold off on that and hang in there at WW.

Why? This business is all about self promotion. Mayweather is a perfect example. He targeted De la Fishnets about 2 years before he actually fought him. In fact he made it very clear that the Judah fight was all about testing himself in the higher weights with the ultimate goal to meet Oscar.

There is nothing wrong with laying out your blueprint for the world to see. It takes some moxy but good for Khan.


Mayweather did exactly what he had to do to get that big fight, and he performed well enough to deserve it.

He wont even tell us what he was convicted for, I mean, why would you call yourself convictedfelon unless you want people to ask?

Theres a word for people like that



He just wants to be like Mayweather who will soon be a convicted felon if there is any justice in the world just like his daddy.

Which is my point, Khan is beating everyone they are putting in front of him, as made (I think) an honest attempt to get Tim Bradley in the ring and is now trying to position him for the biggest payday you can get in boxing. I don't see what he is doing wrong.

I agree, Khan is making it happen for himself. Bradley is doing nothing but screwing himself, by sitting out and hoping to cash in.

Khans chin is still not very good, its mostly his fault tho his defense is still bad. Not very much head movement he can't fight going backwards which is a problem because he finds himself on his bike when pressured and when he's back peddling he holds his chin out and leans back rather then moving his head or having his hands up. But he has the most upside I think other than Donair out of all the up and coming stars in the sport.

Have not seen your other 2 posts but the above one has been a greater contribution to this board than Hazsuckeddickbehindbars made in 170 odd posts.

We know Mayweather. He's an excellent boxer, 42 & 0, Never been knocked out. Khan is no Mayweather.
