Amir Khan Expects a Big Power Push at Welterweight

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) feels confident that his move to the welterweight division will generate an explosion of power and strength. Talks are ongoing for Khan to make his welterweight debut in the co-featured spot on the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana undercard on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The opponent being discussed is former welterweight champion Luis Collazo.

"I've already moved up to 147lbs. Weight making can affect a fighter, I was killing myself to make weight [at 140lbs], going back to the Zab Judah fight when I was first having problems. I think now being at 1477-pounds its only going to make me stronger, more healthier and happier when I go into a fight. The speed's gonna be there, the power, and the hunger as well. I won't be tired or weak, so I'm excited. The future holds a lot of things for me," Khan told Ringside.
