Amir Khan is gifted in many ways. He has speed, quickness, size and fast hands. However, all of that is undone by his fatal flaw- very low punch resistance. And once again, it did him in versus Danny Garcia this past weekend at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Khan was seemingly in control against “Swift” before he was struck with a left hook that sent him crashing to the canvas near the end of the third round. He was stopped in the fourth after Garcia scored two more knockdowns.
Khan is boxing’s version of the Flying Wallendas, in the sense that he walks a tightrope without a net. One mistake can be fatal. But I have to admit, it makes for some compelling action.
As for Garcia, well, he certainly made a statement (but no, he didn’t really vindicate his father’s verbal vitriol) and you can add him to the likes of Lucas Matthysse, Mike Alvarado, Marcos Maidana and Lamont Peterson among several others who, if you mix and match them, you’d have yourself a pretty damn good 140-pound fight.
Again, it’ll be incumbent upon the networks (HBO/Showtime) to enforce their economic influence by demanding the viewing public gets the best possible fights in this division, not just the best possible fights within a promotional company.
