Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

lol Khan. Maybe you will stop talking about fighting Mayweather now.

Khan showed a lot of heart though, that fourth round was awesome.
Khan's a good fighter, but that chin will never allow him to be an elite fighter.

Garcia's dad should get his own show, I'd watch that.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

He's simply never had a chin. Ever. Which is a shame because otherwise he is one of the most gifted boxers I've seen. But all that speed don't mean **** if you can't eat some hard shots. Freddy did all he could with him, teaching him to fight from the outside, to duck. But you gonna get hit.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Can't argue with the stoppage although I think he should have been stopped it in the 3rd. What's with spending an extra 10 seconds to ascertain if the fighter is OK, seems pretty unfair on the guy who scored the kd.

I appreciate Khan's heart but maybe if he'd tried holding in round 4 rather than slugging it out, he would have recovered.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Fight should have been stopped after knockdown 1. Bayless was VERY lenient with the count after 8 there.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

It was only a matter of time before the most deluded UK fighter was caught out again ..

The bottom line is the guy is just not that bright ... he has all the tools but just does not use them correctly and he believes in his own hype and fights the wrong fight thinking he cannot lose.

He just has not chin and would be absolutely brutalized against the bigger punchers at 147.

I suppose Mayweather at 147+ is on the back burner again

New it was trouble for Khan when he was calling himself a superstar pre-fight and talking about a Mayweather fight. He's just so bad.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Wow, what a night of fights.

Khan just has a bad chin, everyone has always known it. He and his hardcore fans have always denied it but now even he must know. He needs to start fighting like a guy who has a bad chin. Garcia didn't look special to me, I guess there's a possibility he fights Mayweather next in which case he will get annihilated. At this point I think Khan should return to the UK and have a rematch with Prescott, It's probably an easy win at this stage and the fight will create a lot of interest from the British public.

Haye proving again that he's a very entertaining boxer when he's not fighting someone who's a lot taller than him. I hope he fights someone like Povetkin or Adamek next rather than Vitali.

Ughhh the only fight Khan gets mauled and hangs on is when I stood to gain a ton of money on a Maidana KO at +600

That was a pretty vicious hook. Almost anyone is going down on a hard hook that lands right below the ear. It's amazing he got back up.

Lol Khan anyways because he's an easy guy to dislike.

I can't stop laughing at Khan when he gets back up, it's too funny.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

What can a boxer do about a bad chin tbf to Khan?.
Surely having a sturdy chin is just something your born with, like an inate ability to take the pain and not KO.

Short of just having someone repeatedly punch you in the face till you get knocked out and get parkinsons, i dont see how you can "improve" your chin.

He is/was a bit of a hype job, and obvo he shouldnt try to tough it out and brawl, but even against a worse oppenent your going to get hit. Didnt learn his lesson from Maidana where he looked like he was going to drop at any second in some of the rounds.

Yeah, there's nothing you can do about the chin. It's a shame he lost, Khan vs PBF would've been hilarious.
