I beg to differ, he had better rounds but Khan was controlling the fight with his jab and winning the fight.
Not until the right hand landed was it actually competitive. I had a house full of people and I remember people were saying it wasn't as exciting as they thought it might be. Maidana wasn't really reaching Khan in those early rounds.
Ortiz vs Berto was a much better fight. There was 4 knockdowns in the first 3 rounds I believe and they were throwing some really hard shots late in that fight, one of the best fights of the year no doubt.
