Good programme with some interesting points. Amir Khan is clearly in denial about his glass chin! he won't make it. I think the BEijing team have better prospects for the pro's.

Khan made me laugh in the post fight interview when he said "they are bringing world class fighters (ie Gomez) to fight me now and they get a good 8 weeks notice"

Gomez was fringe world class at best in his prime .....certainly not when he faced Khan.

The only great thing Gomez did is beat Alex Arthur (It was Arthur right?) apart from that not much. He was a domestic level super featherweight!!

Khan is deluded :nonono:

I totally agree, the Gomez that beat Arthur would have done for Khan no problem.

If Khan is world class so is Gomez. A prime Gomez would have ko'ed him fact.

I have a source close to Khan that says his family are ragging the little cash he has. All of them descending on him like a pack of wolves! I doubt he will have much left over after dad and uncle spend it on Bhutto's election campaign!

I know I threw 2 empty cans of beer and the remote at the TV when I heard him say that.

Unbelievable!

I was red with anger, who's he trying to kid? all the part-time boxing fans...that's who!

And it will happen. Like kids playing footie in front of an old lady's window. Sooner or later it's gonna get kicked through and smashed.

I'm British and even I want Amir to get knocked out. Something about him annoys me, I don't really pay him much attention, I don't believe in the hype. Last fight I saw him in he punched the guy some 3 times whilst he was down and sat in the corner, he followed him with his hands whilst the punches were thrown meaning they were not a reaction combo which just happened to catch him, and then when he went down a second time he hit him once down again and then the third he didn't need to obviously. I'm not a fan.

iv noticed that too!!

and where did you here that?I ahve a source close to me who is a source close to them! I KNOW he has a problem with his beak too! He hangs around with chavs allday long driving around and acting like dickheads.

I love watching Khan just the hope of him getting knocked out i dont want to miss it when it happens.YEP. Nothing like seeing a bull****ter with his pants down. In a way him getting spanked was good for him and Warren. Now that they realised they need Warrens kid gloves, he will last a little longer. If he had spanked Gomez then they wopuld have gone for self promo. And his manager uncle genuinely think he is world class!!!! LOL. That's the problem with having family with fingers in pie when they were not boxing people beforehand.

Amir Khan will get KO'd once he fights at a decent level.

WHat if he never does that? It is possibel and the British public are dumb enough to keep buying his crap! He did once say he wants to retire at 25!

He'll have to fight for a world title one day and then make defences. As soon as he meets someone with a decent defense and a dig he'll get KTFO.

Terry Edwards just saved his career by sending Gavin home! Suspicious is that me says. And then there was the Kindelan set up too which made him 3-1 in that series.

I don't want him to get KO'd yet, but i want to see him work a hell of a lot on his defense and i want to see him step up and fight better competition instead of conning casual boxing fans into thinking he's the next big thing because he's knocking out shot featherweights.

Here here i'd also like to see him take a bit of advice from some better liked boxers, There is something about khan that seems to annoy alot of people.

He just is not good enough. Them shots that rocked him weren't even heavy. No matter what he does with his defence everyone takes shots at some point and he will get found out.

Here here i'd also like to see him take a bit of advice from some better liked boxers, There is something about khan that seems to annoy alot of people.He is a phony. If he had ability then nobody would be annoyd.

I don't think he will even go that far. Trust me the Brits are dumb enough to think a WBU is a legit world title. Just look at Fatton pre-Tszyu fight. He could possibly retire as a 'great' in their eyes without having a genuine world title. I wouldn't put it past them. Most poeple you talk to who know **** all about boxing actually think Gomez was a GREAT fighter, because Amir said so in what he thought was his interview with Larry Merchant!

This is a ridiculous suggestion!!

Anyway, if Gavin was to compete and win gold it would make no difference to Khan's career.Only give the Khan haters something to go about!!

Trust me, Frank Warren will find a way to get him a shot at the WBO sometime soon. It's like the Frank Warren belt. He is already ranked #2 by the WBO and #4 by the WBC.

To be fair to him, I can't imagine a scenario where many boxers are going to say "Yes well, obviously my chin is **** so i guess I'll just have to hope no-one hits me."

FeFist
08-14-2008, 01:35 AM
Lol I don't know who is more deluded, Khan or his fans, I had one of his fans call me an idiot for saying Paciquao would cave his chin in though he also thought he stood a chance against Margarito.

He is letting the British hype get to him, half his followers don't even care about boxing, it's just an excuse for them to go out and get wasted.

I dont expect Khan to say anything else, What i dont understand is people making a big deal out of a young boxer who is obviously learning, Of course he would say things to make him look good thats what boxers do.
