  • Khan's handspeed in his prime

    Khan's handspeed in his prime was next level you have to admit?

    Yeah, it was. There's an old sparring clip of Amir and Pacquiao sparring. Video looked sped up, some of those exchanges were scary fast

      One of the fastest I've ever seen in my lifetime.

      Probably him or Meldrick Taylor, or Howard Davis Jr.

        The speed was impressive because he threw combinations. Not one fighter have said that he is not that fast. Too bad his chin didn't do as well as his speed.

          Defo some of the fastest hands I've seen from a man of his size.

          People can laugh all they want, but I still think a prime Khan could've caused Floyd all kinds of problems due to his style.

            I agree with that.

              Yeah, and he had zero boxing IQ, eventually opponents would time his flurries and then chin him with one counter.

                Speed kills. He was a very dangerous fighter under Roach. Back then the thinking was maybe you could knock him out late in the fight, when he slows down, but could you survive the first 7 rounds?

                    It was, but it did not matter because 1 it were arm punches and 2 they were all in the same rythm so if you have the timing down and are able to throw counters you could always starch him.
