Amir Khan vs. Chris Algieri: Winner, Scorecard and Full Fight Highlights: Mayweather Challenged
This was a fight that had created intense interest among boxing fans across the world. Amir Khan, the boy from Bolton, England, was thought to be a boxer with the weakest chins. But he has proved all his doubters wrong by beating a worthwhile opponent quite easily.
His punches are more powerful than before and the way he was able to endure powerful blows from American boxer Chris Algieri proves that he is no more the fighter who couldnâ€™t take a few powerful punches. He is completely transformed now and the world seems to have finally realized it.
It was his fight win in a row and all the fights have been against top of the line and very credible opponents. Now Amir Khanâ€™s future dominance of the game cannot be brushed aside as someoneâ€™s imagination. He is going to stay here for a long time to come and dominate the boxing for years and years.
There is no denying the fact that 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. In the meantime, the last nightâ€™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.
Now he has set his sight on the top pound of pound fighter in the world. 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. â€œEveryone 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 backâ€¦I donâ€™t want to overlook any other fighters, including Chrisâ€, said Khan after emerging victorious.
After winning the fight, an ecstatic Khan said, â€œI thought I worked well inside. Iâ€™ve never done a lot of work in the pocket like that and I plan to do more of that in the futureâ€¦I give Chris a lot of credit. He came forward a lot more than we thought he would and he had a big chin tonightâ€¦Chris gave it his all tonight. This is the best Algieri weâ€™ve seen in a long time, and if heâ€™d have fought Manny (Pacquiao) that way he might have won.â€
