With his younger brother Haroon fighting alongside him, former 140-pound champion Amir Khan fended off six miscreants who were attempting to steal his £100,000 (roughly $160,400) Range Rover early Monday morning.
“These guys tried to jump Amir and his brother but they picked on the wrong blokes,” one witness told The Sun .
After a night out in Birmingham, England, the two Khans approached the automobile when the group of aspiring carjackers impeded their exit with a 4x4.

“They parked their car in front of the Range Rover,” the witness continued.  “At least one had a cosh (a heavy stick used as a weapon, e.g., a billyclub or crowbar).  One slapped Amir and clipped him on the lip but Amir pulled back and knocked him out cold.”

The brawl would continue, but according to the onlooker, it would appear that the prizefighters won by spectacular stoppage.

“Then five of them went for Amir and Haroon—but they stood their ground and these guys got dropped one by one,” the witness said.  “They left these men with cuts and bruises but all they were doing was defending their property.”

The local police confirmed that fisticuffs occurred, but that “nobody came forward.”
The Khans have a busy few months ahead.  25-year-old Amir (26-3, 18 KOs) is due in Northern California soon to start training camp with new trainer Virgil Hunter to prepare for his Dec. 15 return against Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7 KOs) at the L.A. Sports Arena. 
Haroon, 20, a Commonwealth Games flyweight bronze medalist, just turned pro and signed with Super Fight Promotions, a joint venture run by his older brother Amir and Dennis Hobson.

[QUOTE=HELLRAZAH]when people mobb there isnt 6 people swinging at once, its usually one guy throws a hit then the other guy then so on, so a trained boxer who knows how to move eg. has good foot work, would be able to dodge and counter givin his reflexes are much better, ive boxed for about 6 yea...
