I am patriotic and supportive to any British boxer that steps into the squared circle, and Amir Khan has my respect for what he has achieved within the sport so far including going State-side to learn outside of his comfort zone.
But I have no respect for fighters who call out elite fighters after a near knock-out loss to Marcos Maidana, for boxing fans who don’t know much about the British boxing landscape, Khan is not the best we have to offer by a long shot, Carl Froch is our best fighter at the moment but in the same super middleweight division we have James DeGale and George Groves.
James DeGale even though he lost to George Groves, which I think he did not, you can watch it on YouTube, it is a entertaining fight, I believe is our best hope for a pound 4 pound ranking within the next 4 years the only thing he needs to do is get a better trainer.
My prediction for the Amir Khan vs. Zab Judah fight is quite simple Khan wins it within the first 6 rounds, or Zab can take Khan between the 6th and 12th rounds. Amir’s speed may overwhelm Zab Judah early on and might persuade the referee into a TKO stoppage, Khan throws a lot of eye catching flurry’s and throws well to the body early on, this may slow Judah down and he might not recover?
Zab I believe has a great chance of winning past round 6 if he has used his experience to see off what I believe will be an early onslaught from Khan, because what I have seen from khan’s career up till now is that, no matter how much cardiovascular work that Amir does he does not possess great stamina or the best boxing brain.
Amir throws to many punches in the start of fights like a kid in a sweet shop scrambling for sweets with £100 to spend, Khan is thinking too much on the false media attention given to him which has swelled his ego. If Amir reserved something in the tank then he may be able to throw better combos in the later parts of fights WITH POWER, not the powder puff he threw at Maidana in the last round of there fight.
I appreciate all the constructive responses from my last post, I love and respect all boxers as it is the hardest sport In the world.
I have my own opinion’s on Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr, but it is not down to color, countries or religion, I base my opinion strictly on what I see, I really think that Manny’s fellow Filipino Nonito Donaire is a better boxer than MannyPacquiao and in the coming years we will see that come to fruition.

I fell in love with boxing from the age of 8 or 9 when I watched Mike Tyson knock out Trevor Berbick, I was hooked from then but it was only a fascination at that tender age.
My favorite fighters are: Lenox Lewis, Nigel Benn, Ricky Hatton, Thomas Hearns, Gene Tunney, Floyd Mayweather Jnr.
