Khan Advises Tyson Fury To Cut Down The Trash Talk

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN has told Tyson Fury he should keep his mouth shut.

The unbeaten Manchester heavyweight has gained a reputation for shooting from the hip and lip
.
Fury makes his USA debut against Steve Cunningham in New York on Saturday.

And Fury, 24, hasn’t been scared of having a go at the former IBF cruiserweight king.

But Khan says that his trash talk won’t win over American fans.

Khan tackles a 12-rounder against Julio Diaz at Sheffield Arena on April 27, but most of his fights take place in the USA and he knows what makes their fans tick.

He said: “Tyson hasn’t proved anything or won anything big yet.

“If he’s in America early in his career and talking like he’s already a world champion or the best pound-for-pound fighter, people are going to hate him.

“People will respect him more if he beats Cunningham with a good performance instead of talking big.”

Khan, 26, tackles Mexican Diaz in his second contest with trainer Virgil Hall calling the shots.

He is in his home town of Bolton finishing off preparations after an eight-week training camp in California.

The former world lightwelterweight champion said: “It was great to be in a gym with so many good fighters like Alfredo Angulo, Andre Ward and Robert Guerrero.

“I was being advised by brilliant tacticians like Ward, who would tell me what I was doing wrong.”

Khan beat Carlos Molina late last year in his first contest under Hill, and he added: “The other trainers in the gym have seen a big difference. I’m smarter.

“It’s about picking the shots at the right time and not just going forward, throwing a lot of punches and making mistakes.”

[QUOTE=The Noose;13263945]Great post. Green k, Im not a fan of trash talking as a means of self promotion. But it obviously works, and Tyson says such utterly stupid things people actually love him for it. Even though they all think…

Can't wait to hear Fury's response.

lol Khan is great. Fury is great too. Froch and Chisora also great characters. Brook and Burns need to step their game up and start making some noise and get themselves some big fights.

[QUOTE=Stokely;13262693]Bringing some noise to a lifeless division with attention grabbing sound-bites will leave the man hated? That's not very likely taking into account the changes that newer technologies have had on media content. The internet fosters and encourages snippets of…
