While UK welterweight Amir Khan is a big underdog in this month’s fight against WBO welterweight world champion Terence Crawford, he’s not letting it get to him mentally.
He is understood to be in career best condition in training camp at present and is coming to the fight he believes he can win it.
Despite most boxing fans believing the exact opposite.
Khan, whatever your opinion is of him, has always been involved in exciting fights, showed huge heart and tried to fight the best in his career.
Time and time again to be fair.
Speaking on his official verified Twitter account the Bolton native was keen to impress who in his opinion, are the best 11 fighters on his resume to date ahead of his challenge against pound for pound star Crawford this month:
“Amir Khan has faced: Barrera Kotelnik Malignaggi Maidana Judah Peterson Garcia Collazo Alexander Algieri Canelo On April 20th, we can add P4P Champion Terence Crawford to this list. 8 wins, 3 defeats.”
Time will tell what the result will be but one way or another — expect Khan to bring excitement and go out guns blazing whatever the result is.
While many think he’ll need to stick to a safety first game plan, it’s hard to see him doing that for all twelve rounds.
You have to think ‘Bud’ will make him fight at some point.
