WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has apologized over a comment the boxer posted on his personal Twitter page on Thursday.  Robert Guerrero suffered a left shoulder injury and withdrew from his upcoming fight with Marcos Maidana, scheduled for August 27th.

After Khan became aware of the news, he made a claim on his Twitter page that Guerrero's injury was non-existent and Maidana paid him “step aside money” to become the WBA's "regular" champion at 140-pounds. Khan is the WBA's "super champion" at 140. While Khan apologized to Guerrero, he continued to exchange verbal jabs with Maidana.

"I was messing around about the injury of Guerrero. Apologies for the tweet. I'm sure he didn't get paid step aside money. Someone said it was an arm injury in sparring [that] Guerrero suffered. Well let's hope he recovers. I bet Maidana is happy for not wanting  to get beat up,” Khan said.

[QUOTE=chav]114 - 111 114 - 111 113 - 112 Yeah it looks like he only had the 1 decent round. It was a good fight man, it wasn't a walk in the park for Khan or Maidana and I would be well up for part 2. I hope they keep the sh1t talking up because with drama the public get involved and it o...

[QUOTE=Solitario]someone needs to hold an intervention for khan and get him off twitter for his own well being[/QUOTE] You bet, great idea man, but its not just Khan. Just in the last couple of years alone, how many fighters have made fools of themselves or tarnished their own image by maki...

Cortez didn't win sh*t for Maidana. Amir was winning that fight easily, up until the point where he got caught. He survived it and even threw back in the 12th, gimme a break. You could argue the reverse as Maidana was hurt by that body shot and got saved by the bell.

i have been a long time supporter of Amir (no..really...i have!) but got blocked after the sacking of ariza because i suggested to him that his 'team' was undermining him and he ought to be careful to make sure he had the right people around him to keep him going in right direction then after ...
