Amir Khan: If I Lose To Julio Diaz, I'd Be Destroyed!

By Edward Chaykovsky

In a recent interview with Daily Mail Online, former junior welterweight Amir Khan discussed his April 27th clash with Julio Diaz. The match takes place in Sheffield with a catch-weight of 143-pounds in place. Khan told the paper that his entire is at stake in this match, and suffering another defeat would put the nail in the coffin of his future aspirations. Khan is training in San Francisco with Virgil Hunter.

"I can't afford to lose again - I'd be destroyed,' he said. 'I needed someone like Virgil to tell me straight how it is. Things were wrong, but I never picked up on them," Khan told the paper.

"I blame myself because I could have done things differently. At the Wild Card, it was all about showing how brave you are. It's a famous gym and you're always on show. Being world champion, you didn't want to look stupid, or look like an ordinary fighter, or that some kid could come along and beat you up in sparring. At the Wild Card, I used to have wars with everyone."

"Normally, I'm a very humble man. But when people come over and say there's this party happening and people like yourself should be there, it's a big thing, it does change you. At the last camp for the [Danny] Garcia fight, I went to four parties. It's not me. But then you'd be seen mixing with A-list celebrities, like Jennifer Lopez, and they all say nice things. You think, "Wow, they know me". You see people on TV and you remember they'd spoken to you at a party. But I also know that it's a story of boxers down the years."

[QUOTE=chump123]I was speaking to Amir the other day and he said he is already getting sick of it. He said despite what he says to the media he would rather still be with roach, with the reason being - what's the point of training if you are no longer enjoying it.[/QUOTE] Virgil is a great t...

To the fans Kahn is damaged goods! He has proven to have a weak chin (not glass) and he is in the final stage of his career not to mention the brilliant job he has done of destroying his cred with all of his whiney crybaby tactics. One cannot dismiss the disrespectful way he handled Freddy Roach ...

[QUOTE=chump123]I would rather not disclose that on here and besides that it is irrelevent to the disscussion. Stop being nosey![/QUOTE] yeah I ran into Khan the other day at Ralphs and he was complaining about the prices in the produce section. We started talking about trainers and he told m...

which begs the question why the hell are you fighting him

This overrated bum amazes me on how he gets mentioned for continuous title shots with so many rematches he owes and such poor quality of smaller opponents on his build up streak.
