Definitely.

Khan is the most exciting because while his combinations and speed are a sight to behold there is always that possibility that he could go down on a bomb. He could be completely dominating an opponent but even then you wonder if he'll get caught and dropped. No one else compares to that really. And because of his heart he's also not a quitter so even if he gets dropped he still comes back and tries his best.

One of the most exciting fighters, he's hardly EVER in a dull fight.

He's too damn aggressive and game for the weak chin he has, which is a great combination for us fans, as he either blasts the guy out or gets blasted out, either way, you know it' worth watching his fight, because it's never dull

Nah, most exciting to watch is Froch. Never seen that dude in a bad fight.

Khan is fun to watch but not the most exciting fighter.

Very exciting, yes! Most exciting? No. I can definitely see how someone can make an argument that he is though. It's all a matter of personal preference. I enjoy watching Martinez, Ortiz, Gamboa, Froch.

He's exciting because he's so vulnerable against punchers. But he can also be slightly boring against undersized non-punchers.

Guys like Rios, Matthysse and even Garcia are more exciting because they don't resort to holding, pushing or pulling whenever they're under the slightest bit of pressure.

Froch looked terrible against Ward.

He almost goes out (or does) in most of his fights with punchers.
Amir Khan is full of heart and that is why boxing fans should follow him. Takes on all comers and gives his best each time. Kind of like Gatti did. We need more fighters with that type of quality. He could have easily took the path of least resistance and had his Mayweather shot lined up but he took tough fights and lost a few. It happens. I like to see fighters who are willing to risk it all like that. Eventually those type of fighters will gain more followers even after losing because of their consistent tremendous efforts.

He one of the most exciting IMO. His speed and come forward style, (as well as his heart) mixed in with his vunerable chin and leaky defense make for entertaining fights.

Agreed, Khans lack of skill is what makes him exciting. You never know when he is gonna that huge hit that will hurt him(which will come because of lack of defense).
If you wanna see speed, power, footwork, and great boxing skills; Russell Jr is the way to go!
