Angel Garcia: Amir Khan Looked Like The Same Guy

By Luis Sandoval

Trainer Angel Garcia was not impressed by Amir Khan's victory from last Saturday night in Los Angeles. Garcia's son, WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, stopped Khan in four rounds in July. Khan (27-3, 19KOs) returned last weekend, with new trainer Virgil Hunter, and stopped Carlos Molina in ten rounds.

Angel sat ringside and watched the action. He saw nothing new in Khan's style that would make him believe a rematch with Danny would be any different. In fact, he believes some of the new tactics being employed by Hunter will actually create additional danger for the British star. He also saw Khan get countered several times, flush on the jaw, but Molina did not have the firepower to do any serious damage.

"I seen the same guy. All they trying to do is calm him down more. If he calms him down more than he's really in danger because he's going to sit there and get hit. He looked real anxious like he wanted that W to prove to the world that he's the best. But listen, can he take a shot from a guy like Danny who could punch?," Angel told BoxingScene.com.

Yup, Agreed. Khan has wicked hand speed and excellent power, but againts a fighter who can take his power..then he is in trouble, it happened againts Maidana as well, but Maidana does not box as well as Garcia. He does…

[QUOTE=raja harpoon;12837082]yep you 're right, but it is a significant move in the right direction,he is actually thinking about defence now and with Virgil Hunter he can only improve.He's not an old dog as yet! Khan seriously underetimated Garcia's power…
