Amir Khan fires back to critics

Amir Khan on Saturday, April 20th is going up against pound for pound champion Terrance Crawford on ESPN pay-per-view and his considered to be a heavy underdog in his upcoming quest to become a three-time world champion.

Amazing considering Khan with only has four losses. One in a fight against Lamont Peterson that everyone fans and critics arguably state that he had won. He also couldn’t avenge it because Peterson was stripped for testing positive for PEDs and a loss against Canelo Alvarez back in where he had to come up in weight to challenge. Mikey Garcia last month reminded us how that usually that is a common result.

Khan had told BT Sport that he believes his critics are jealous of his exploits.

“I was quite hard (to deal with his rapid rise),” he said. “I was so young and all my friends were chilling, playing football and I couldn’t do all that stuff.

“I was a young boy, I was 17 when I first came on the map. Now I’m one of the eldest in the game with two kids.

“If you don’t like me don’t comment about it. They don’t like you or they want to say something bad about your boxing career.

“I just think most of it is all jealousy really. I get a lot of hate for reasons that just make no sense. I’ve tried my hardest to please everyone, but its never worked.”

Khan will have a chance to answer all of the critics as he enters the squared circle for the first time since September on April 20th.

In his last visit to America, Khan knocked out in the sixth round by Canelo Alvarez in a fight he jumped a weight class for. The full documentary from BT Sport series ” No Filter Boxing” is below.
