But I think Freddie is working on tightening Khans defence all the time, thats why they chose Malinaggi. Fight that will make a fair bit of $$$, relatively big name and very low chance of having his chin tested. It was a smart move. Would be perfect to dominate 140 division by taking on Maidana & then Bradley, then move to 147.
Paullie always wasn't an outstanding counter-puncher, he got caught with lefts which was just pathetic for a southpaw.
But on the other hand, khan was hustled by the southpaw. Khans got amazing speed though. I also noticed how khan has really a hard left, but was easily caught by the right (something not favoring him with names like mayweather)
Freddie will sharpen khan up despite his obvious fuked track record.
Paullie needs to hire a new trainer. He tired, but paullie, to me, doesn't have the natural talent.
Khan "picking" his opponents as easy is a simple argument for any Khan hater. Admittedly, Malinaggi wasn't the greatest challenger but a durable, counter punching fighter for his US debut. If Paulie was that easy, he would have been knocked out in the first few rounds so not that easy to beat was he. Khan's said himself that he wants to face the likes of Maidana/Bradley etc. Isn't it better for him to face either or any big challenger to him at the time that is right rather than fight now and it not garner the coverage a fight with a big name light weltweight deserves? It's called building up fights and for the promotional teams to make tons of money when it does.
And also Khan's recent situation with the model, oh yeah, he deserves public condemnation and stoning for as a 23-year-old chap to send those kinds of messages to a model. Not really on the John Terry level or a married man is he? Admittedly, not great looking on his Muslim image he's portraying but everybody makes mistakes.
BTW, like Victor Ortiz when he fought. Very Pacquaio like as a south paw and his general footwork, enjoyed his comfortable win over Campbell.
