Alexander: Skill vs. Skill, Amir Khan is No Threat To Me!

By Ryan Burton

Earlier this week IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander appeared on BoxingScene Radio and spoke on a variety of topics including a potential showdown against former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan.  The fighters promoter Golden Boy Promotions, along with Khan himself have expressed an interest in making the fight happen on December 7th. Alexander told us that he likes the fight as well. 

"It definitely is a good fight that I would be interested in. They say Khan is one of the best guys out there.  In my opinion he is just an average guy," stated Alexander.

 "When it is all said they are pumping him up so I would love to get in the ring with him because I will definitely beat him. He will get with his team and I will get with my team and we will go from there. I have near shied away from no opponent. I get in the ring with whoever they put in front of me."

Khan looked shaky and even hit the canvas in his last fight when he defeated former titlist Julio Diaz. BoxingScene Radio co-host Luis Sandoval asked Alexander to measure up the danger in facing the Brit. 

"I don't think he's a threat at all. Well let me take that back. Like I said with Purdy, anyone who puts on gloves is a threat to me.  He's trying to hurt you and take what you have so that's a threat alone but as far as me versus Khan, skill versus skill, he isn't a threat to me at all. He hasn't fought too many guys with skills like mine in his career and I think that will be a factor in this fight," Alexander told BoxingScene Radio.

I got devon in this one but not by much. An i want to know who told devon khan was one of the best!!!!! Khan is so-so with a chin of jello!

Khan will always be exciting but never elite because any taxi driver can make him go bambi legs at any point of a fight.

Too bad Khan's heart and chin are inversely proportional. But he needs to give up the Mayweather pipe dreams. He should settle for any title fight he is offered.

[QUOTE=harwri008;13411267]I wouldn't pick Khan against a dishwasher. He has no heart or a chin. That's why he'll continue to lose fights. The only time Khan is confident is when he's sure no punches will be thrown.[/QUOTE] Lol no chin, yes…

I think Alexander wins, I don't think Khan has better skills for one moment. All I feel Khan has in his favour is a rather slight handspeed advantage. He doesn't have the punch resistance, workrate, conditioning, footwork, defense, ring I.Q,…
