Can he have a HOF type career ?
I love Amir, he always comes to fight and i like his swag
P4P most skilled fighters don't get knocked out by fringe contenders, more than once.
lmaoo i still remember this. it went something like this,
Reporter: Shaq, if a snake bit ur mom in the chest, would u suck the venom out to win this championship?
Shaq: No, but i will with your mom
Lmaoooo, still gets me to this day
Sure he got Knocked out, but that doesn't mean he's not skill, Arlovski is a skill fighter even though he gets KO'ed a lot.
Amir's biggest weakness is that he thinks he's a brawler but once he realizes that he has significant advantage when he chooses to just "BOX" he will be very hard to beat.
Seriously, khans chin and penchant for throwing down instead of working to his strengths mean he will never have that career. But hopefully he gets sparked by Kell brook before he hangs them up.
Replace khan with kimbo then yes.
he's pretty dang good, but he's not one of the top p4p fighters

Didn't we have this thread already?
If it was Kimbo the question would be rhetorical.
I can't stand Garcia, but lol at "FRINGE" contender.
He can get there. Based on his last fight I don't see it happening, but he has the physical tools (minus a chin) to do it.
fast yes, skilled no
Such a bro thread.
Kahn is fun to watch and like everyone else says most of the fights he is in are exciting, win or lose. That being said, Pound for pound means the best of the best in boxing, regardless of what weight class you are in. With that chin, and his sometimes wreckless style I have hard time tagging him as a lb for lb best.
He's got great skills but no chin.
I think Khan has a lot of natural talents and abilities... but Khan's problem is beyond just chin.
He has horrible balance, bad foot work, low ring IQ, leaky defense, and 0 ability to fight on the inside.
Far from one of the most skilled boxers that we have today...
Ward, Mayweather, and Rigondeaux, are probably the most 'skilled' boxers of today.
No to the first part...... Maybe to the 2nd... Many good fighters have been ko'd he has a long way to go.
I was surprised how easily Garcia connected with a relatively slow hook. But then Khan showed good resolve. It just wasn't enough.
