    Hi HumanNature, if you do find a stream could you send it to me please. Do you have to download anything for live streams, also will it be on BBC Live radio (Commentary)?

    There should be plenty, if I find one I will! If not just google something like khan vs maidana live stream or go to justin tv and search there.

    No you dont have to download anything for online live streams. Ermm i'm not sure tbh about commentary,.

    I'm watching it through a stream, paid for his first Box Office fight, big mistake!!

    I could have brought a curry that night rather than watching Khan get downed in 53 seconds. If he wins tonight though I'll probably start paying again.

    I'm ordering it this simply because it's the first big real test for Khan since he lost to Prescott. I expect Khan to come through on points or wear him down and knock him out in the later rounds although Ortiz dropped Maidana a few times and he got up so a long night ahead.

    Khan's defence is way better since Prescott loss, he's not going to make that mistake again. I think every single boxer's chin is susceptible to a big punch but it depends on whether you defend yourself properly to make sure you don't get hit.

    I'm sure Khan's haters will find something to criticise him on as they always do, "He's not fighting Maidana" they used to say, now he is and if he overcomes it, I hope he gets some credit.

    I'm undecided as to whether to stay up till 4am or 5am or get some sleep for a few hours. What are the plans for the rest of you lot?

    Yeah man I box and the first thing the trainer told me was keep your guard up because the only place you can't build muscle is your jaw, you're born with the one you've got, and Amir Khan's jaw is as punch proof as a piece of crockery
    Tbh, If hit on the button with the right timing the best of the best could end up being floored. A few weeks back we saw Paul Williams being KO'd against Sergio Martinez, and we know how much of a great chin that guy had. Khan's defence was abysmal back then and he was suceptible to those type of punches. Since he's training with Freddie in the Wildcard gym, he's defence has improved a lot.

    I've paid for this event because I think it will go 12 rounds or late and I want to see how Khan does in his first test under Roach.

    ATM, I'm planning to get a few hours kip on the sofa before getting up at 3.30amish. But might be persuaded to stay up late if anything's on the Sky Plus Planner
