Team Alexander To Khan: No Talk, Sign The Contract!

By Ryan Burton

Earlier today in a story that ran on BoxingScene.com, Amir Khan said that he is already in great shape for a potential December 7th showdown against IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander. Although the contracts have yet to be signed, Khan will be fighting at 147 pounds for the first time and said that he feels stronger than ever.  

“I only fight twice a year, and I’ve never trained in between a training camp, but this time, I’ve been training in between camps,” Khan said.  “It’s the first time ever, so I flew in my conditioning coach over, Tony [Brady].  He spent five weeks with me on strength and conditioning.  I’m already in shape, I feel, and I still have 11, 12 weeks until the fight.  I’ve never been so fit going into a fight for a long time.  That’s a big bonus.

“There are some things on my conditioning that we’ve never worked on before, like my stability.  My balance was so bad.  My stability wasn’t the best.  I’ve improved that so much in five weeks.  I feel so much stronger when I walk, when I stand up.  I’m like a different fighter,” Khan told BoxingScene.com's Ryan Maquiñana. 

When notified of Khan's comments, Alexander's trainer/manager Kevin Cunningham said that the Briton should do less talking and sign the contract. He also stated that his fighter is more than willing to "earn" a shot at a Floyd Mayweather. He feels that a fight between Alexander and Khan will produce a legitimate opponent for Mayweather.

"Stop talking and sign the contract. The IBF welterweight title is on the line and a shot at Mayweather. Team Khan needs to stop fucking around. The difference between Devon and Amir is Devon's willing to earn a shot at Mayweather. Amir thinks he's entitled," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.

Funny in light of his recent whining.

Khan talks instead of training and fighting. Khan has brain damage and is delusional. Needs checked out mentally. Virgil called Khan lazy and unfocused.

[QUOTE=BoxingFan82;13772216]I don't disagree that intelligent, motivated boxers can up their defensive game. Is Khan either of those things? I have my doubts. Khan was doing a dance for most of the rounds against Julio [I]Who?[/I] Diaz. In my opinion, after…
