Hearn: Khan in a Bit of a Delusional State Right Now

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Barry Hearn of Matchroom Sport is not too confident of Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) securing a 2015 fight with WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs).

Hearn is shaking his head at some of the recent press statements made by Khan in the UK. He feels the Bolton star is getting too ahead of himself. Of course, Hearn wants to get his fighter, IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, in the ring with Khan.

Matchroom has Wembley Stadium on hold for June 13, hoping to make a big fight between Khan and Brook at the venue. Brook is going to make the first defense of his title in March - potentially against mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan.

"Amir Khan is in a bit of an ego-delusional state at the moment - thinking that he's the second coming of welterweights, when - as I say - he's got three losses and you can't take them away from your record . He's a good fighter, he's getting better. He can't punch but he's quick. His new trainer has done a good job in protecting his chin. I'm really impressed," Hearn told Seconds Out.

[QUOTE=boxingfan1986;15237636]Barry Hearn made the quotes.[/QUOTE] ok....now answer my other question...why does this "writer" get away with regurgitating interviews from other boxing websites and making multiple articles out of the same interview? oh, i know...because boxingscene hacks can grab search ranking…

[QUOTE=KFC;15238111]Aydin and Berto better then Collazo and Alexander you know nothing about Boxing[/QUOTE] Well there's not much in it to be fair. Berto beat Collazo while Alexander is just less average than Aydin.

[QUOTE=BigZigga;15237388]Guerrero has a better overall resume. Not only that, but Collazo and Alexander are not much better than Aydin and Berto Alexander should have lost to Matthysse and Kotelnik. He lost to Bradley and got manhandled by Shawn porter. Collazo…
