“Amir Khan delivered a boxing masterclass to underline his case for a showdown with Floyd Mayweather next year…” –The Guardian

Saturday’s SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast of Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander will re-air tonight, Monday, Dec. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME EXTREME and is available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND® and SHOWTIME ANYTIME®.

“Welterweight Amir (King) Khan took the main event in the MGM Grand Garden on Saturday night, an event labeled “The Royal Battle,” in impressive fashion.”- Bill Dwyre, Los Angeles Times

“The 28-year-old native of England looked spectacular in his second fight as a full-fledged welterweight by controlling distance with his jab and temporarily putting aside the chin issues that have haunted his career.” – Brian Campbell, ESPN

Amir Khan put on a boxing clinic at the expense of Devon Alexander Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, garnering the degree of landslide he felt necessary to warrant a shot at Floyd Mayweather Jr.” – Case Keefer, Las Vegas Review-Journal

“The way he took apart Alexander, who had lost only twice before this, was terrifically encouraging, no more so than in witnessing how Virgil Hunter, his wily trainer, has ironed out the flaws which were holding him back.” – Steve Brenner, The Guardian

“Khan, using his height (5’9″), boxing acumen and pure physical gifts, dominated a fight many expected to be close, beating Alexander to the punch and re-staking his claim to the greatest prize in all of boxing—a potential bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr.”- Jonathan Snowden, Bleacher Report

“Khan’s quickness was too much from the opening bell as he kept the southpaw Alexander on the outside and was first with his punches in most exchanges.” –Tim Dahlberg, Associated Press

So brilliantly did he bedazzle the much-respected three-time world champion Devon Alexander that this neon city which craves thrills and excitement is clamouring to see his name back in lights here soon.” Jeff Powell, Daily Mail

-Denise Alvarez :

Amir Khan has improved in his boxing skills. Since Floyd has mentioned that Amir Khan is unknown to the casual boxer and he has no desire to fight him, Khan should fight Keith Thurman. Keith will no doubt beat Khan and this will increase Thurman's popularity.

I agree. I believe that the very hard-hitting, patient, "One Time" Thurman would kayo Amir Khan with sneak shot in a round or two. Holla!


-stormcentre :

Hmmm. Khan V Thurman would be a good fight. It's hard to imagine Khan being confident going into that one. Whereas Thurman, he would probably be all geed up.

Do not be too quick in writing off Khan in this scrap. He has enough tools to make it interesting.

Agreed. I think this fight ends with a Thurman KO or Khan UD. Khan has better legs, faster hands, and more combinations. I can see Khan moving, lighting Thurman up with combinations, and getting out of the way. ...I just wrote that and realized that Chris Algieri wants to be Amir Khan when he grows up.

Wow! What? We are definitely coming in on different planes. Khan is flashly fast and crude. "One Time" is quick, stealth and fluid. He is actually faster than Amir Khan with feet and hands. Khan is jittery and flustering. He is like a loud, shaky automobile who uneducated eyes would think is faster than a quite, smooth, steady, low-to-the-ground-NASCAR vehicle. Sound, jittering and flustering can fool the heck out vision when you are not aware of it. I'm not onboard with DDV. Thurman would kayo Khan in a firefight, the way that Marvelous Marvin Hagler did Tommy Hearns back in da day. Or Thurman would "One Time" him and that is all he rows. Holla!


-Carmine Cas :

I think Khan getting knocked out by Thurman is inevitable if they were to fight. Thurman is quick enough to find Khan's chin, and when he does his fists will cause Khan's chin to detonate. KABOOM! But I haven't see Thurman's last two fights. Has he fixed some of his technical flaws? Such as pushing the jab or overextending on the right hand? All which can be fixed but things Khan get capitalize on.
