And it takes alot of a young guy to come back from being KO'd within the first round to beat Barrera and even in the manner he did it (yes well past prime but still) and then beat a legitimate world champion with a world class defence. Kotelnik is no world beater but he's capable of rooting out the hypejobs and beat Maidana and Rees etc.
Khan is a good fighter and has the attributes to be a great one, time will tell. But he has all the skills so why not make him marketable? Why not give him exposure? People complain about boxers not getting enough mainstream exposure but Khan is pretty big in the UK and hes bringing boxing out again. Why not let that happen? It can only be good for you sport
Thats fine, but lets not hear people trying to con hardcore fans into thinking Khan deserves more credit for beating former super bantamweights (controversially) and beating nobodies like Salita and losing fights to the likes of Prescott( nobody)
I aint having people try and con me, it is what is. If he wants respect he will fight for it, that means fighting better opponents who have a chance of beating him, see Bradley vs Holt, Peterson.
