    I quite like Amir, I don't really see this happening though. I'd be down to see him take a fight or two in a smaller promotion and see how he does and then who knows.

    I can see his glass chin holding up very well against MMA gloves...

    "If I work on my grappling a little bit more"

    So does he practice any styles of grappling?

    He's involved with SFL? That gives him a lot of motive to say this and speak well of MMA.


    He's got foot and hand speed and he can shove as much as he want, he might do ok.

    Lol at any of the MMA guys hitting him on the feet

    Plus his "glass chin" would be way above average in MMA

    lol @ Amir Khan talking about MMA

    he'd get knocked out cold the first time somebody GNP'd him....glass jaw is glass

    I couldn't imagine him taking a shot from anybody wearing MMA gloves

    Good for him. Good to see boxers who know what's up as opposed to geniuses like Adrien Broner...

    You're welcome lol

    It was fairly big over here in the UK, because Amir Khan said he and his brother (who's also a boxer) beat up '6 men at once'

    Then they put out that vid to show he was lying :icon_lol:

    Doubt anybody is landing a punch standing with him

    but he'd take ground and pound pretty badly

    it's a whole lot easier to knock somebody out in MMA gloves than boxing gloves

    Did you not see his last fight against Algieri? He looked awful.

    Honestly, who is his best win? Maidana? A past their primes Judah and Barrera?

    Him and Malignaggi get the most coverage for boxers who haven't really done anything while guys Danny Garcia get no love.
