A risky route Khan could take to be right back at the top
By Ste Terry: After suffering a devastating 4th round KO loss to WBA WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (24-0-0), Amir Khan (26-3-0) has been left with a tough decision on were he goes from here.
The path that he`s most likely to take is facing weak opposition in hes next 3 to 4 fights then start facing more credible fighters and eventually getting another world title under hes belt. But by doing so Khan is going to lose a lot of respect from fans and fuel haters to criticize him even more than they do already.
However, there is a route he can go with his career which is by no means safe but it is achievable and will gain him a lot of respect, silence the critics and most importantly for Khan put him back up there at the top.
Firstly instead of facing a fighter everybody knows he will beat Khan should fight Breidis Prescott in a fight which he can win easy by using hes skills and box ability which will avenge his first loss of his career. Then after that win go straight after Lamont Peterson, who let’s face it isn’t a danger to Khan and in many peoples eyes was very fortunate to get the win in the first place, and by doing so avenging the second loss of his career.
Then after a lot of hard training and work on defence and maybe a tune up bout have the rematch with WBC/WBA light welterweight champion Danny Garcia, who by this time may have losses on hes own record and flaws exposed. So by taking this route and most importantly being successful in doing so Khan would gain tones of respect, avenge all of his losses and be right back up there at the top of the division. Sadly for Khan and boxing fans this route won’t be the one his promotional team pick for him but its the most credible and the one fight fans would love to see.
