tommygunn said:amir is faster stronger hits harder and has equal footwork, floyd is beter defensivly though, id say amir would take floyd out just now he is that good and will win a world title before he turns 21 that is his ambition.
prettyboywho said:I got to stick with Erik on this one. He is good but you talking about the number 1 P4P fighter in the world getting beat by someone that is not that well known, does not have a world title, and might not even be ranked that high.
tommygunn said:mayweather is taylor made for khan, amir is impossible to counter and is about a zillion times faster than floyd. this kid is a british champ by march and a world champ by this time next year.
Thats insulting. Why would FLoyd fight ANYONE for that amount? (unless you missed a comma /decimal somewhere)tommygunn said:its a matter of opinions asnd if this thread offends you so much then why post in it khan at the age of 17 years old beat the greatest amature fighter in history cuban mario kindelan, who by the way holds wins over trinidad, mosely and casamayor. im not bias against fighters from any country but know a good un when i see them. by the way all khans team now know he's ready for the big time and he did challenge floyd to a 4 round fight last year for £1000.000.
Aims to retire in 4 years?!tommygunn said:the only reason khan aint fought better oposition is you cant fight more than 8 rounds untill your 20 in the uk. and why not be the best at that age if your good enough your old enough, look at mike tyson at 20 he was fighting for the hw title. khan is a very special fighter and aims to retire in 4 years time !!!
again i will say time will tell, but he's already got a fight against john thaxton for the british lightweight title next and plans to fight stateside after that so this will be his 12th fight and he's in the states. as he said world champ within a year. by the way guy's he only turned pro about a year ago thats about 10 fights in a year which is unheard off. :cheeky4:Jetcar said:Aims to retire in 4 years?!
He'll be 24, and at the rate fighters fight these days, that's what, 7, maybe eight more fights?? He's only had ten pro fights, and one of them has been a ten rounder.
As soon as he "steps up" to ranked opponents and stays at the ten round fight level, frequency of fights will slow way down. The combinded records of his opponents is 116-99-10. That's barely over 500% in the win/loss ratio. Factor in that most were 4 and 6 round fights against total no names, and I'd say it's a little early to start calling out Mayweather. Like most young professionals, he's not been tested to see how his talents stack up against another skilled boxer.
So yes, he looks great and shows promise, but he's far from special just yet. Two of his three points victories have come at the hands of fighters with more than ten losses on their records....that's a sure sign that once he's in the ring with a more experienced fighter, he has trouble with them, and gets taken the distance.
I hope he does well, but he's not ready to fight Mayweather just yet. Maybe Hatton.
