Amir Khan Satisfied With Win, Using New Ring Skills

Amir Khan sealed a much-needed victory when he stopped Carlos Molina in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Molina was unable to come out for the eleventh round of the bout as the Briton restored his image to some extent and finished a disappointing year on a higher note. Khan, a former WBA and WBC junior welterweight champion, took charge of the non-title junior welterweight fight and extended his professional record to 26-3, with 18 knockouts. Now trained by Virgil Hunter, the boxer received the vacant WBC silver super-lightweight title for his trouble as he moved on to fight another day.

"I thought I stuck to my game plan, which meant sticking to my jab," Khan said. "Carlos took some really good shots, and he was still coming forward, and that's when I thought to myself, `I'd better stick to this game plan."

"Virgil is a great trainer, and I'm getting better at boxing and at being a complete fighter. He's teaching me boxing, speed, patience, and picking the right shot and when to throw it. Sometimes I'm too brave for my own good, but now I know it's better to stick to the game plan."

[QUOTE=ThePunchingBag;12821236]What I saw last night makes me think that Khan gets KO'd right now by anyone with good punching power and decent boxing skills. This was a good confidence boost and hopefully he'll improve more with Virgil Hunter, but tonight…

Now that Khan has his patience in check, he needs some extensive defensive training. No need to fight til at least June IMO, stay in the gym and learn. No lesson learned or displayed last night. Khan would have won…
