has a professional boxing record of 33 fights 20wins by knockout 4 losses 3 losses by Knock out. Many make light of his Chin or ability to take a punch. But what’s not mentioned is all of Khan’s Losses have come North or South of 147lbs He was stopped by @canelo
in 6 rounds although he contended as a Middleweight. He was stopped by @dannyswiftgarcia
Super Light or 140lbs he loses to @kingpete29
and Breidis Prescott at Lightweight.
Some of you are reading this saying what difference does it make.
The truth of the matter is in boxing weight class comfort and performance are synonymous. Fighters who fight North or South of their natural fighting weight the is question always asked at the post-fight pressers is How do You Feel? which is vitally important in understanding the fighters performances win or lose there are many variables associated with surfing weight classes some find success and others just can't cut it. For the sake of argument, I will give @amirkingkhan
the benefit of the doubt, his record speaks for itself. He's faced veteran opponents in the Welterweight division @dalexander1 @chris_algieri @realluiscollazo
and Julio Diaz.
And found success at Welterweight.
However, his opponent in April @tbudcrawford
is a special kind of fighter, yes he's moved up in weight after unifying the 140lbs division but he's found his sweet spot.
He currently holds the WBO title at Welterweight. Crawford professional record is 34 fights 25 Wins by way of Knockout and 0 losses. He has wins over @jeffhornboxer
Does being undefeated at 147lbs hurt or Help @amirkingkhan
? I believe he will have to convince himself psychologically that he is actually undefeated and perform as such. He will have to be cautious and patient not to expose himself. He may get out on @tbudcrawford
on points outboxing him a few rounds since Crawford is known as a slow starter before he makes his adjustments. ( it may be too late for khan by then)
The keys to victory for Khan is simple to avoid to avoid being hit flush. 🤣😂🤣😂 #boxingsweetscience2
