Former world champion Amir Khan’s take on this past weekend’s big fight in Las Vegas has not gone down well with boxing fans.
Khan tends to get hammered to shreds by certain areas of the fight community.
Why, to me, is unknown though.
All he’s ever done for us has provided entertaining fights and proven his incredible levels of heart and courage, time and time again.
At any rate, this reaction has annoyed a large proportion of fans online again:
What a fight #CaneloGGG2 I gave the fight to Canelo. It was toe to toe action, Very exciting. Canelo surprised us all with the come forward pressure game plan. Well done to both Canelo and GGG. Boxing needed this @HBOboxing @GoldenBoyBoxing

Here’s what some of the boxing world has been saying to him in reply:
You joking. GGG got robbed again.

You only say that because it makes your legacy better ?

Boxing needed this!?! Are you having a fucking laugh? Yes it was close, but in no way was it a canelo victory, I could have managed to agree with a draw, but it’s just another robbery from an away fighter in America. You should know better Khan, just like when you fought Peterson

You’re clearly still dazed from the Canelo knockout!
