Amir Khan: No Rematch, I Would Have Hurt Paul Bad!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan (25-1, 17KOs) sees no reason to grant Paul McCloskey (22-1, 12KOs) a rematch. Their bout at the MEN Arena in Manchester was stopped early in the sixth round after a clash of heads opened up a cut above the left eye of McCloskey. All three judges scored it 60-54.

McCloskey's promoter Barry Hearn is very angry with the doctor's ruling. He doesn't believe the fight should have been stopped. He plans to protest the call with the British Boxing Board of Control. He says McCloskey deserves a rematch.

Khan doesn't agree with Hearn.

"I'm looking for bigger things like a fight a fight with Timothy Bradley. I was beating [McCloskey] easy. I think he took some good punches and surprised me and Freddie, but I think if the fight would have continued I would have hurt him bad. Nobody wants to see him get hurt bad. I would have knocked him out," Khan said.

Khan looked a little amaturish tonite - I dont think his future is too bright if he decides to step up the competition at 147.
