Amir Khan Believes He is The World’s Quickest Boxer

By Terence Dooley

Amir Khan has told TalkSport.co.uk that his hand speed is unrivalled in the world of boxing.  Khan is set to defend his WBA light-welterweight title at the MEN Arena, Manchester on April 16 – Manchester’s John Murray and Northern Ireland’s Paul McCloskey are both in the frame as Khan seeks to finalise the details of his homecoming bout.

Amir defeated Paulie Malignaggi and Marcos Madiana last year, in New York and Las Vegas respectively; the 24-year-old feels that his recent development has seen him outstrip fellow speedsters Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

“There's no fighter as quick as me, that's a fact.  Floyd, Manny Pacquiao, anyone,” declared the 24-1 (17) fighter.  


I read this today and it just made me shake my head.

On what basis does he justify that stuff? How does he know it's a fact? His ego is running away again.

Yeah he truly is a twat. Enjoyed his last fight immensly and cannot wait for his next decent opponent. Bradley in particular. But he truly is a clown.

The guy is a complete PR disaster and thinks he is better than he is he had to hang on for dear life against Maidana. I actually hate watching the guy fight although his last fight was a classic tbh I'm starting to get to the stage that I hope he gets sparked again just to shut him up.

The Maidana fight was exciting enough for a rematch to be made but GBP are aiming Khan at Mayweather. They won't want to jeopardize, what *they* think is a rich fight, by going for Maidana again. Maybe after Khan is beaten by Floyd.

If this was the other way round and PM was champion you would all be shouting 'take the money khan you greedy little twat, its the most you've ever been offered'.
Very boring now people.
Apparently the arrogant prick Khan insists that his opponent wears gloves when they fight and isnt even allowed any weapons! What a fuckin pussy, why wont he stand in front of people and get punched in the face for free. I hate the way he avoids punches and the way he wants paying for doing his job.

He sent away a good opponent in Peterson over money and has lined up another fighter cheaper. And he's still moaning. He can't have it every way. You're making it out like he's being victimised. Neither Peterson or McCloskey are PPV quality fights and yet Khan will be getting it on PPV and make a fortune either way.

He offered both of them career best purses, why is he the greedy one. He's the one with the ppv and the name, he's the one who people will tune in for (either to love or hate), he's the one who sells the fight. McCloskey wants to take a leaf out of Chisora's book.

ah hes a great lad offering them a career best... sure that wouldnt be hard. champion should get 60% and challenger should get 40% across the board, that would cut out all this sh*t.

mccloskey will bring a huge following from ireland and will sell alot of irish ppv's. khan cant fill an arena no matter who hes fighting.

yeah if marketed correctly here in ireland he would equal the entire amount of ppv's he got for kotelnik just on these shores alone + what ever the numbers that will buy it in britain,
I have found it very interesting that khan has been nearly begging mccloskey to take fight.

I don't see why Khan cares so much about how much the other guy is fighting or why he has suddenly become such an expert on the going rates for fighters in World Title fights.

Money seems to be every third word coming out of Team Khan's mouth. I can almost see him turning round and expecting 60% should he ever negotiate a fight with Floyd.

When you have a belt you get to call the shots, some champions are probably more fair than others. Then again, what is fair?

How much do you reckon the challenger should get?
