Amir Khan vs Chris Algieri full fight highlights, result: Khan challenges Floyd Mayweather

Amir Khan has won his fifth fight in a row. And to be true this was a fight that he won impressively. From the word go to the final whistle, the British boxer always looked in command.

Amir Khan vs Chris Algieri fight result is out. The fight that was hosted Friday night in New York, once again gave another opportunity to the Khan to demand a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. The world champion who has beaten Manny Pacquiao in the last fight, that many call the fight of the century, has never shown his preparedness to Khan who comes with many traits that are very similar to Mayweather.

Khan is quick and is known to elude his opponent due to his quick movement of feat. Though his punches may not have the same power as Mayweather Jr, his speed can put any fight, however good, on the backfoot.Amir khan boxer
In the meantime, the last night’s fight was one of the most impressive and commanding show by the Khan from Bolton. He came into the welterweight bout at the Barclays Center as a heavy favourite but found that the fight was not as easy as he might have expected. He had to work very hard against Algieri before being handed the decision 117-111 by two of the judges with the third scoring it 115-113.

Khan has been asking Mayweather to fight him for the last several years. But now he has become a serious contender after impressive fights and proving his chin to be stronger than many others. “Everyone knows I want Floyd next after all the talk about it, but when you wait and hope for something for this long it can set you back…I don’t want to overlook any other fighters, including Chris”, said Khan after emerging victorious.

Amir Khan who seems to proven his critics wrong once again said, “I thought I worked well inside. I’ve never done a lot of work in the pocket like that and I plan to do more of that in the future…I give Chris a lot of credit. He came forward a lot more than we thought he would and he had a big chin tonight…Chris gave it his all tonight. This is the best Algieri we’ve seen in a long time, and if he’d have fought Manny (Pacquiao) that way he might have won.”
