You put him in with your McCloskeys, Malignaggi's of the world, he will look a million dollars.

People are just blinded by his handspeed. I'm not sure why he is still held in high regard, people/British media should focus their attention to a real fighter like Carl Froch.
Froch loses to guys that are good in Kessler and Ward. Vs small guys like Taylor who was a 160'er, Abraham etc he looks good or wins. He has to face old guys like Johnson to look impressive or chinny guys like Bute.

Khan looked amazing last night. As you said, he's one of those guys who'll look like a superstar versus certain types of fighters. That's partly why Amir's developed a following. But I have a feeling Khan will never live up to his promise. A new trainer and some small changes might give his fans hope, but I think Amir will always fall just short when really challenged.

I agree. I thought Khan fought a good poised fight against an overmatched opponent. His hand speed is definitely impressive, but he still throws those pitty pat kind of punches like an amateur. Also, although he was calmer, he still fights too frantic for my tastes. That's why he gets knocked out. He doesn't pace himself well. He throws five punches when he should throw three and leaves himself wide open. Like a good power puncher, he's in love with his ability and probably believes his hand speed is the end all be all. If he can refine his technique and be a bit more methodical with his approach, he could climb back up and beat some top guys. But as of now, he gets knocked out again by anyone with heavy hands and good boxing skills. Matthysse comes to mind.

Molna was a 5ft4 non punching lightweight. That fight was supoosed to be a confidence booster.

Molina was a lightweight, who wasnt even a puncher at that. Against these types of guys Khan will look amazing and dominate. Like he did against Malignaggi.

i suggest he takes a few easy fights to ensure hunters advice becomes naturally embedded into his instinct instead of it being forced.

only that way will khan improve and we'll see a new fighter.

it takes more than 8 weeks to improve 7 years worth of frailties.

have 3/4 easier fights over the next 18 months, then give the big boys another go.

if he steps into the ring with a top fighter too soon it'll be lights out.

yup...khan didn't show anything new. maybe he looked slightly faster, but other than that he was still being reckless as usual and getting caught with clean punches...matching him up with garcia next would be a horrible move.
