i'd love to see how thaxton would do against Katsidis. that would be another war and i reckon he'd do a lot better than earl.

Thaxton can box, Earl can't.

Thaxton's last fight was memorable, I thought he was going to lose but he outclassed his opponent 10 fold.

Thaxton is just below world class imo. He would give most lightweights a tough fight, very frustrationg person to fight who has enough power to make you take notice. Khan will have to fight Thaxton soon and that will be a very hard fight for Amir.

yeah...khan-thaxton could very well happen after the summer. i expect khan to have at least 2 more fights first though. i'm sure there must be a step between thaxton and khan's last few opponents

Yeah, Thaxton is on another level to those frenchmen Khan has beat. Khan needs to fight Meager or someone like Ricky Burns. That would be a good stepping stone to Thaxton. The fight with Thaxton will be a great fight, looking forward to it. (if it happens of courdse)
