ughh.. im so sick of ppl crying over matthysse being robbed, he wasnt! they were both close fights that could have gon either way. in this case it went for alexander and thats 100% fair. he did lose to kotelnik though, also a close fight but kotelnik unlike matthysse did win enough rounds clearly to set himself apart as the better fighter.
im going with alexander whos fought ppl of all styles and taken fewer Ls than khan. one thing i look at is how would they have done against each others competition. clearly khan did better with kotelnik but i think it ends there for him. if he on the other hand fought the likes of bailey, matthysse or even witter and urango i think he would be knocked out every time.
they protected him from punchers his whole career, the only puncher he beat was the most crude one of all in maidana who he still looked terrible against. of course alexander outboxed maidana with relative ease.
