Boxing champion Amir Khan is one of the most popular boxers in the world today. In a recent EsNewsReporting poll Khan came in first getting 54% of the votes a head of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.
Hmm, polls can be open to many interpretations. Khan is definitely one of the fastest rising stars out there along with Victor Ortiz, Maidana, Rios, Canelo, and Chavez Jr, just to name a few, but I don’t think he’s quite up there yet. Understandably, Khan has had to do a lot of yapping to get some attention from the media and the boxing world. His calling out Floyd for a fight and his comments about Guerrero faking an injury, are all meant to garner more interest around himself. Some will hate him for being too cocky and loud-mouthed, others will like him for being entertaining and amusing, much like floyd’s mouth.
As long as he doesn’t go overboard like Haye and disrespect other fighters as human beings by threatening their families and children, I don’t mind Khan making a lot of noise with his mouth. Some gain notoreity with their outside-ring antics like Prince Naseem, and others gain their fame inside the ring like Klitschkos and Pacquiao.
