Khan: If I Have No Chin, Why Doesn't Garcia Fight Me?
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Amir Khan insists he is not worried about Danny Garcia's punch power and hopes to land a rematch this year. Khan was floored heavily by Garcia in a shock knockout defeat in July and the Philadelphia fighter's father, trainer Angel Garcia has irritated the Bolton boxer by questioning his punch resistance. Garcia will defend his WBC and WBA light-welterweight titles against Zab Judah on February 9, but Khan has urged the champion to face him again in his next fight.

"He caught me with a great shot, he caught me with a big left hook that I didn't recover from, so you know he's going to say all sorts," Khan told Sky Sports News. "If he doesn't think I have got a chin then why doesn't he take the fight on again, against me. It should be an easy fight for Danny Garcia. I tell you one thing, if I didn't have a chin, I don't think I would get up from that first knockdown because it was a punch perfect shot he hit me with. After getting hit with that shot, I got hit by 20 clean punches.

"I mean if Amir Khan didn't have a chin, I don't think he would take those shots. So I don't know what his Dad is going on about."

Khan will stay busy by taking a fight while he waits for Garcia and possible opponents include Ricky Hatton's recent conqueror Vyacheslav Senchenko. Golden Boy promotions boss Richard Schaefer will hold talks with Khan before his next foe is announced later in the week.

"The Garcia fight could happen towards the end of the year because he's fighting Zab Judah. That's what I'm hoping for," said Khan. "There have been a few opponents I have been looking at. People have been talking about Josesito Lopez, there's Victor Ortiz, there's Senchenhko, the guy who beat Ricky Hatton. I'm one of those fighters who would fight anyone put in front of them. I've never said no to an opponent and I never will."

[QUOTE=Rome-By-Ko]I agree with most of ya post tbh..But I still can't say Marquez has Manny's number..Like I said Manny(weather people wanna argue or not)still holds two wins over him...I agree with you about Garcia and Khan,but this is boxing and these are opinions..So until Garcia beats Khan ag...

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]Manny hasn't convincingly beat Marquez 3 fights prior to being KO'd brutally in the 4th fight. I think it is safe to say that he knows Manny pretty well. Khan last fight didn't prove that he could avoid the same left hook he got caught with before. I don't see Khan having the b...

[QUOTE=Rome-By-Ko]How does Marquez have Pac's number??You do know Pac has 2 wins to 1 right??I mean I think the more proper wording would be Marquez and Pac match up well against each other..To compare Pac Marquez to that of Khan Garcia is not the best move bro...Not to mention,you really don't k...

Because he might have a problem if he doesn't hit it like that again, and he doesn't need to. You got hit, got stunned, couldn't keep him off, couldn't recover. If you go weak after you take a big shot, that's why people say you don't have a chin. It doesn't matter if you got back up.
