★★★ Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson ★★★

157 posts in this topic

Good fight, will be Khans last at 140 - he has claimed that talks are already underway to fight Floyd Mayweather once he moves up to 147, though has said it will probably be his 3rd fight at the weight, and that he isn't looking past peterson.

Formerly Manny Pacquiao, Jamie Kavanagh, Dean Byrne.... though Jose Benavidez Jr has been one of his main sparring partners in preparation for Peterson.

Google made you look clever.

I see what you're doing there.

Khan sparring

+

@ 1:50 Khan comes face to face with Timothy Bradley and tells him to grow some balls, even though he sounds like he should be saying rubber dingy rapids bro.

Some good stuff on him with Tyson in there aswell

Khan>>>

Amir Khan growing on me

thought he was any guy after he got knocked out by prescott but im a true believer that it shows greater character to come back strong after defeat

Not the regular boxing fan but lately getting reeled in thanks to the likes of Khan by following his journey/progress

It's improved quite a bit since he's gone up in weight, the extra bulk in his upperbody/neck/legs have helped him take a punch better, having said that, it is still pretty poor, especially as he's definitely outgrown the 140 division, so he's going to be doing some serious cutting to make weight, which could be detrimental to his already questionable punch resistance, however Peterson has fists made of fluffy clouds, so he has practically no chance of knocking Khan out, his only chance is to catch him coming on to something.

I expect he'll break him down to the body over the first few rounds, Lamont has good fundamentals and upperbody movment, but he keeps his hands too low, and Khan throws in too high a volume coming in not to land, even if his accuracy is questionable, probably stop him mid-late rounds or get a UD.

Khan def needs to move up after this though, Roach apparently said he wants him to stay at 140 for one more fight with Rios, but I'm not sure this would be a good idea, unless there was some sort of rehydration clause, but TR and GBP are unlikely to throw their two stars into the mix at a point when they can milk them both for millions for years to come.

I just don't understand why people are already throwing the PBF question out there.

Still needs a few more fights

To be fair I think that WW now is a slightly thin division, compared to what it was just a few years back, once he moves up of course he will likely have a fight to settle, and one against a mid-level opponent, then he will likely have to step up

There aren't too many marketable fights out there for him, Berto, Ortiz maybe, he will of course have the Bradley fight when Bradley moves up, aside from that there is only really Mayweather as Khan has stated he isn't going to fight Pacquiao, and Pacquiao is with top rank.

Actually not sure what will happen with the Mayweather bout, Mayweather definitely beats him, unless this bout happens when May is about 37, but I'm not sure he will stick around that long, and I can't see Oscar risking his next big star, Amir is the level below that of the elite boxers but will definitely be the next big star in boxing (despite being as dull as dishwater and lacking 'star' quality), and the king of the WW division, not sure if putting him in with Floyd is a good idea, especially with the extremely careful matchmaking that's done these days.

Btw as Steve Bunce has just commented the bookies odds are stupendously in Khans favour if anyone fancies a bet on Lamont - there is also some very good odds for Khan to win the fight after being dropped (with William HIll)

The one thing that Khan has, which arguably Hatton had and the reason PBF fought him was the fanbase.

If PBF does fight Khan he is guaranteed a sell out and high number of PPV.

But this is based on the premise that PBF does actually want to fight him.
