Guys like Kotelnik and Judah and Malignaggi were perfect for him, guys who like to stay at range and box. No coincidence those were his most impressive wins. If Khan can stay at range and outspeed you, he will kick your ass.

I think you are greatly overestimating how many people actually believed Khan was going to be the face of boxing. That talk mostly came from Khan fans.

I still think he's a good fighter.
Beating Malignaggi is really not that impressive. He looked terrible against Maidana. He's had a couple solid performances and a few sh*tty ones. He's decent and nothing more. He can stay beating on the second tier guys at 140 but he couldn't beat anyone elite in that division or at 147. Or at 135 when he was there for that matter. Maybe he's not the most overrated but he's not far from it.

you sound hurt are you a Khan fan? he got caught and KTFO it happens and we knew Khan chin is vulnerable and every opponent has a decent punchers chance.
there definatly bigger hype jobs in the game right now Khan still one of the Top guys in boxing this is really only his 2nd loss

The same thing went for Hatton after he was KO'ed. He got exposed and people liked to talk about him making some kind of come back because he beat Malignaggi.

I like Pauli but hate how people use him to justify their agendas. Khan was never that good and this fight validates that. However props to Garcia as everyone was writing him off. As a fighter that has to be more rewarding than anything.

Agreed. Amir Khan just got knocked the **** out in the FOURTH round. If he's a good fighter then Danny Garcia is a legend. Bad analogy but the truth is, when good and top fighters are discussed, he doesn't deserve mention. Heck if Marco Antonio Barrera was able to continue I still believe he would've ended this hype job ages ago. Oh wait, Presscott already did that. Jesus...

He was a 6-1 favorite to win the fight, that says a lot. He is one of the most hyped up guys right now, HBO could say enough great things about him last night....then in a split second, they were talking about how smart Garcia was.....they had already forgotten about Khan just like DLH had when he was all smiles and shaking Garcia hand after the win.

The hype changes like the tides of the ocean.

Hatton wasn't a hype job, he just lost to the best. He gave May a good fight.
