That was'nt a ****ing knockdown, his foot got stuck in the ropes and he slipped, OMG who is the writer of this article?

the ref called it a knockdown so officially its a knockdown!

unoffically he got his foot caught in thje ropes hit the ground with one glove then instantly bounced up and threw a 1-2 before the ref started counting!

He was off balance, the punch didnt even land! Also i think he mite have got his foot caught in the ropes plus he said after the fight that the ref even said sorry for calling it a kd!

it wasn't a knockdown. He tripped when his foot got caught in the ropes and his glove touched the floor.

Khan looked like he improved alot for the first 3 rounds. Boxed smart and was landing his combos and beating him to the punch all the time.
After 3-4 rounds Khan got hit by every right hand Rachid Drilzane threw, his defence was poor and was lucky that drilzane didnt knock him out. Good job drilzane wasnt a heavy hitter.

I think Khan wont go as far as everyone thought based on what i saw last night, sure he was fast and landed a lot of punches but he has very little power and still has a lacking defense.

he did get caught a few times but took it well. But Drilzane didn't have much power. He needs to improve his defences for when he goes up against someone who can actually punch

his chins always in the air thats such a simple improvement and yet its still up there for all to hit

shocking mistakes, but he is young. needs to improve big time if he is to get anywhere in boxing, move to the US for first class sparring, ditching Warren would be a good start, got to hide his chin more. Proved his fitness though.
a lot more hard work needed.
