11th Diaz. Khan almost down. I smell robbery. But Khan is definitely not winning the fight.

ROBBED - 114-113 , 115-113, 115-112 Khan is the winner.

I had it 115-113 Diaz. He knocked Khan down and had him hurt big time in two more rounds. Terrible decision in my opinion....but that was expected...


Although I despise Khan, I have to say I was really trying to see the improvement but it was not there. He just can't guard against left hooks. All his problems were caused by them. He drops his left when he jabs and he held his hands too far apart and almost invited those straights to land. I almost want to say he looked better under Roach. But styles make fights and Diaz certainly didn't come just to collect the paycheck...he came to win and he did...too bad he won on Khan's home turf...

Did he call out Mayweather? I'm sure he did.

That begs the question, why weren't those flaws identified while he was with Roach?

I saw some moments of decidedly better defensive movement, but yes he still needs to work on things.

It is what it is with Khan. He won't really be a different fighter. He needs to now go after the best of the best at 147 b/c he can get knocked out just as easily against lesser opposition. I think a rematch with Garcia would be good. A rematch with Peterson would be fine as well. A fight with Victor Ortiz would be fun.

Khan is a VERY exciting fighter. He will never be among the best p4p fighters in the world, but he is talented enough to beat anyone at 147.

Biscuit chin Khan still cant get it together...regardless of who he works with. Granted, he fought an exceptional game plan tonight, but he still seem to know what to do when it's time to reset after combinations, or deal with angles that his opponents give him.

I think Roach saw the flaws - everybody sees them as they are so apparent, but he didn't know how to correct them. What I meant by my statement is that Amir looked more comfortable fighting Roach's gameplans. But on the other hand, Khan has been under Hunter for how long...2 fights? So there is still time. Something wasn't right with Khan in this fight though. I even turned off the commentary just to see the fight without the inevitable nutt hugging and to have a clear mind when scoring. Diaz took it clearly imo.

Amir Khan clearly won the fight, he didn't win it in dominating fashion, but he was up on the rounds. Diaz only won like three rounds, big rounds, but you have to take the entire fight, not just a round or two, that's just how the scoring goes. I was disappointed in Amir Khan, he tried to change his style up a bit, come off more patient, but it's really the exact same Amir Khan, the same flaws. People shit on Khan, but I think he has so much potential. All he needs to do is improve his defense, learn how to fight on the inside, keep his hands up, learn how to guard, especially guard that chin of his (his biggest weakness), and stop throwing such reckless shots that allows himself to get easily countered. He had so much potential, but shame for him, he's classified on the, "you can't teach an old dog new tricks". Wasted talent.
