Khan blames weight for seeing canvas


Recommended Posts

Amir Khan has stated that fighting at 140lb is the reason why he has been knocked to the floor in recent bouts.

Speaking to ESPN.com, he said, "Part of my punch resistance is due to my weight," Khan said. "Sometimes you need that extra little bit (of weight) to take that punch. If you're not making weight properly, you're not going to take the punches as well. (Trainer) Virgil (Hunter) has seen me spar at 147. I talked to Virgil about moving up and he said, 'Who you looking to fight?' I said, 'Alexander.' He said, 'That's a good fight.'"

Well, Mofo brought it up (As a joke I believe) and you became a crusader for it in the thread. Therefore, it is your responsibility to prove that what you say is true. You can't just say something is

i think Alexander is a winnable fight for Khan, can't see the logic in thinking his punch resistance will get better though, yes he will have a bit more weight but some of those guys at 147 hit harder than the people who have been rocking him of late. Pro's and cons i suppose

Khan needs to make sure the defence side of his style is at a better level then the punch resistance won't matter as much!

and this is exactly why i can't see him adjusting, he'l just try his luck with Devon, if he beats him he'l carry on with that style against the next..... and probably get ktfo

Khan has recognised he has work to do defensively and his team are working to put it right and against Alexander we will see if it has moved on a little more, but I wouldn't expect he would throw away development if he won, just because he won!

He hasn't had 5 years with his current trainer who has identified from the offset that his style needs to change...Roach was happy to leave things the way they were his current set up are not, so what relevance has 5 years got????

Answer...absolutely fuck all!

I mean he's been KO'd in 2 weight classes , the jump from 135 to 140 didn't help

 

He's gotta blame something, it can't be him himself to Amir, he's 2 big headed to believe he has serious flaws

He ain't blaming jack shit, it's what he believes is a reason as to why he has been shaky in some fights, the one thing that is 100% sure though is that if he even slightly improves his defence he will be a better fighter than he already is.....and he ain't done so bad as a pro regardless of what all the biatches say about him :coffee

i see no indications khan will improve his defense.  i also think genetics are the reason for his shaky chin, not weight problems

Anytime Khan has faced a quality foe his size he's been ko'd , hes been draining himself to beat up smaller guys and its been his strength. I could go to boxrec and prove it but its not worth the effort

 

a lot of fighters talk shit but only one fights at his walking around weight, Khan should try 154 or 160 to really improve his chin to its highest potential :coffee

explain

It's simple....he believes he drains himself to make weight and this explains how his resistance is considered to be low to just good punches...not even heavy punches...yet if he joined the roulette of life and his genes were good, he could ignore his conditioning, fitness and having to make weight as a reason as to why his resistance is low at times!!

It's a nonsense, a whole host of reasons contribute to having a good chin and genes ain't one of them!
