    Yeah over the last few days I have kind revised my own pick, and am starting to think that yeah, maybe Khan has enough legs to offset Bradley just enough to cut down his aggression, his consistency, that he has enough dog in him to get through the tough spells when he inevitably gets himself trapped. If Bradley were a bigger punch, then maybe I would choose him, cause skill+power might be enough to take advantage of Khan in that window of opportunity when he gets trapped.

    I think Bradley's biggest problem counter punching, would be that Khan might be able to keep him playing defense, and whilst he's playing defense, he might be getting outworked, that said, I do think its interesting to see what happens if Bradley moves the goal posts, talking about when he doesn't give Amir such an easy target to hit, cause Khan has to hit the target before he can move away. Against Maidana it was easier for Khan to utilize the footmovement, cause he had an easy target to rattle off combo's.

    I don't really know when I decided to change my pick. I just remember thinking Bradley is used to being the guy moving around and doing the in and out stuff and having guys come at him. What happens when he fights a guy like Khan who is on the move all the time and will move in and out on Bradley and can get off quicker than Bradley and has a height and reach advantage over Bradley. I mean Khan makes mistakes, but Bradley doesn't really have the power to make Khan pay for those mistakes IMO, Khan's chin has improved with the move up in weight or it has improved because of his work with Ariza, probably a combination of both.

    Because Khan has shown improvements, not only in his skills but in his will as well. He's become a fighter now, not just a flashy kid from Bolton. That kind of mentality is very important.

    I think he's definitely shown improvements, but I was watching the Maidana fight the other day, and whilst there were spots where he looked really good, he seemed to make quite a few mistakes that got him caught.

    Dont you think he's always had a lot of heart though? I remember watching the Limond fight live on television and thinking to myself, he showed of a lot of heart to get through that and stop Limond.

    I can see why you would pick him though, as I'm starting to think whether I should revise my own pick, as I originally picked Bradley, but am I right that you changed your pick? at what point did you change it, after the Alexander fight or what?

    Khan, his speed, height, footwork and Freddie Roach would overcome Bradley IMO.

    Interesting. After asking you that question I went and checked your post history regarding the two, and you seemed to suggest you thought Bradley had the edge, any reason why you have changed your mind, if you have changed your mind that is?

    Hey Silencers, interested to know who you'd pick to win a potential fight between Khan- Bradley?

    I said I thought Alexander was extremely overrated by fans before! he fought Kotelinik. I never thought he displayed the kind of ability that married up with the amount of notoriety he was getting.

    Alexander is good dont get me wrong, but he has a regimented kind of style due to his stiffness, inability to create angles with head-movement, which means his attacks tend to come in straight lines.

    I think Bradley will have it his way in terms of how the fight plays out, but as you say, I think he has to be careful he doesn't get nailed on the way in.

    I got Bradley, Alexander doesn't move his head that much and needs to establish rhythm to really get going, Kotelnik was doing a very good job of breaking Alexander's rhythm. Bradley's in and out movement will give Alexander a lot of problems. One thing Bradley really does have to watch out for though is the counter uppercut of Alexander, Alexander throws a good one and times it pretty well.

    Apart from that though, I think Bradley will take it pretty clearly.

    Silencer, who are you picking out of Bradley and Alexander ?

    I have a feeling Bradley, as I feel Devon might not be good enough from the outside to keep him out. Alexander has a tendency to recoil into his shots to generate the snap, but I think he overcommits too much, which is why when he missed against Kotelnik, he left himself in a vulnerable spot to be countered imo.

    I get the impression Devon's rigid/stiff style vs Bradley's footspeed, aggression and fluidity, could be the difference.

    If Devon fights on the front foot, I think he attacks in straight lines too much, that Bradley could exploit him with his footspeed. If Devon fights on the backfoot, I think Bradley will be able to slip his leads, or at least be able to take advantage of when he over-commits etc.

    My worry for Bradley, is if he gets caught whilst applying pressure, being aggressive.

    What are your thoughts?
