By Edward Chaykovsky

Hard hitting WBA interim-welterweight champiopn Keith Thurman (21-0, 19KOs) has advised Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) to stay away from 147-pounds. Khan is looking to make a full welterweight debut on December 7th, with IBF champion Devon Alexander as a possible opponent. He says Khan couldn't take hard punches at junior welterweight and won't be capable of taking the much harders shots from the upper-tier fighters at 147.

"You know with my motto being ‘KOs For Life’ I don't see a lot of fights going twelve rounds. I beat my head over the simple fact I got two fights on my record that went the distance. I really don't understand why fights go the distance - if you're really fighting, somebody should be getting beat up and beat down. He couldn't take Danny Garcia's left hook at 140. I really don't think Amir Khan has any business stepping up into the 147 division," Thurman told Live Fight.

Thurman would send Khan into retirement!

Lets put it this way, when/if you are depending on Khan to be flawless then you're better off just betting on the other guy and make yourself some extra money. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android
