He probably will - he's the favourite - but I'll do my part in trying to will an Alexander victory.

Alexander is a live underdog. I have it 60/40 in favour of Khan, although I wouldn't be surprised at all if Alexander won.

I was there, awful event, but on the plus side at least I got a pic with fast Eddie Chambers....

Wearing shorts that cost 30k and telling fans to "demand" a fight between him and Mayweather. :rolleyes:

Glass chinned cu*t.

One KO, one poor ref decision and one cheated by influenced judges hardly entitles you to call him that.

Khan's chin is made of pure china, That cannot be denied. He's now fighting at 147 lbs, so it will be even worse.

I reckon a strong breeze would have him on his arse.

I'm not trying to sound condescending but do you watch boxing?

If you do you'll know his chin is his greatest weakness; whenever people discuss Amir his inability to take a punch is brought up.

By the way, what is this "poor referee" decision you speak of? Certainly not Bayless' stoppage during the Garcia bout?

Nice one, mate.

You look like a big lad, Chambers is 6' 1" and you appear to be taller (unless it's just the camera angle).

Wasn't poor at all. He was getting hit flush; no point of letting him absorb unnecessary punishment, he was out of the fight.

Khan would get f***ked up by either Pacquiao or Mayweather. Don't know why he's calling heads out.

Nutcase, good to see your in shape since the Istanbul fights :hail:

Khan needs to stop trying his luck with the referee during fights. He only goes on to moan about have points deducted then as well, after he's been told to stop.

I'm 6'1 1/2. Felt a bit taller next to him than half than inch tbh. I would say he's 6 foot at a push.

He was a true gent though. Come over shook my hand and had a quick chat with me. There was a few other boxing personalities I saw that night who were nowhere near as warm and welcoming.
