Froch: Khan Must Adjust, Punch Resistance Not Good

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch has advised junior welterweight boxer Amir Khan to switch up his style. Froch feels Khan, at 25-years-old, has the ability to get his career back on track, as he did once before when Breidis Prescott knocked Khan out in the first round in 2008.

Froch, like several other fighters, believes Khan doesn't react well to being hit. To give himself a chance to get his career in order, Froch says the Bolton fighter needs to get back to boxing and stay away from brawls.

“Mentally it’s a tough defeat to get over but he’s done it before following a devastating knockout by Breidis Prescott," Froch told The Sun.

“He knows he has a vulnerability and his punch resistance isn’t good, so what he needs to do is adjust his style. Amir should use his range, fast hands and fitness to move around like he used to do. I don’t know why he seems to get involved in tear-ups.”

His defence needs work and sometimes he just needs to throw with more authority, some of his punches are too 'pity pat' at times and it just leaves him open for a counter much like what happened at the weekend.

i think khan was a bit wreckless. he saw that he was landing at will and that he was considerably faster than garcia... and for the most part, he was dodging all of garcia's lobbing hooks... the moment he got…

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;12349248]:fing02: Maybe that's because Paulie can't punch his way out of a wet paper bag at 140??[/QUOTE] True, but he looked secure in that fight. And Paulie is one of the quicker fighters he'll face. Kotelnik is another one. But…

[QUOTE=Sparked_26;12349243]He shouldn't throw more than two punches at a time. The likelihood of someone being quick enough to counter Khan's jab is pretty slim. Malignaggi was Khan's best performance. It was just the jab that got it done, his right…
