Malignaggi is a very decent fighter. Judah is a cock but he's talented and Barrera... well, yeah he was over the hill but so what? The fight got made, he got paid well. Yuo can only beat who's in front of you and I don't see Khan as having made any egregious ducks of other fighters so far. He's been quite ready to face top level opposition it seems to me.
He's beaten some other excellent fighters already.... Maidana, Kotelnik and I tip him to take Peterson in the rematch. He'll get to Prescott I would have thought, although I think he's already shown that he has got a chin, even if it's never going to be James Toney solid.
I really, really don't get the smug cocky motherfucker thing at all. Alright he's got some faith in his abilities.... well so he should, he's achieved quite a bit for one so young and additionally, what professional boxer isn't cocky? You'd be a danger to yourself if you weren't, you need that attitude to survice in there.
Having said that though, in interviews he comes off as quite normal. He waits tables at his family's restaurant in between fights sometimes, that's not the act of a cocky person, surely???
I hope we shall crush… in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
