    I just can't wait for this fight to happen, i've watched most of the predictions on youtube so i'm all riled up for it. Most of them saying that Khan will win by either TKO or UD or that Maidana will win by KO in the early rounds and i think that's kind of true. I say it's a close fight. I don't know how i'm going to watch it though because i don't have sky sports, but hey i'll find a way (hopefully).

    Just one question though, does anyone know what time the fight will commence?

    Don't know what time it starts but Khan has been sparring with Manny!! To be trained by Roach obviously means he's going to be so well prepared for this one so I'm gonna go with an Amir Khan knockout.

    Yeah i know and thats one of the reasons why people are putting their money on khan. Yeah he could go for a KO but i wouldn't be surprsied if he didnt becuase remember Khan isnt going to go straight into the ring and trade punches, because he'll just get overtaken by maidana's punch power. i think hes going to be kind of dancing around the ring aiming to dominate the fight to the end.

    We'll just have to see and find out tomorrow at an unknown time.

    Glad someone's finally made a thread on this!

    I wanted to know the start time too, but considering it's Vegas and its the last of the brit pack bout, it will be pretty late!

    Khan to win for me, Freddy Roach as a trainer, nuff said. He's been working on his power aswell as speed of course, so even though Maidana is a hard hitter, Khan will get the win.

    To comment on the fight:

    Khan under Roach is a different animal really. If he keeps his focus he should wear Maidana down, though he needs to watch for the big powe punches!

    Correct me if i'm wrong but is the Ortiz fight straight after Khans fight? because if it is, then it's going to be one hell of a night.

    Yeah but he's still got a glass jaw, and he still had this happen to him



    One good hit in the chin and he's done, don't rate him in the slightest, I nearly fell off my seat laughing when he said he wanted to fight mayweather

    Exactly this, he has a chance to prove people wrong, but i cant see him withstanding too many heavy blows. And considering most of his fights end so early with a flurry of punches, it would be interesting to see him play the long game.

    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

    Didn't see a thread for this and wanted to see what people think of the outcome?

    Looking at the view in pictures (source: http://www.boxingfutures.com/news/12...ana-weigh-pics) Khan looks more phyiscally muscular. Although they practically weigh the same.

    I'd like to see Khan knock the fudge out of this argentina guy.

    EDIT // Fight seems late though 3am ish
