Khan Looks To Expose Crawford
In his first title opportunity since his knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez, many critics believe Amir Khan will suffer another loss on April 20th against Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden.
“It’s going to be a tough fight, but I think I can win the fight, a lot of people tell me that I do not have a chance, but I’m fighting for my legacy, I have to be very smart, I’m bigger, I’ll be the fastest and also I have everything to win, I’m at the peak of my career,” said Amir to ESPN Deportes.
“Crawford, as a fighter, has everything, but I’ll be ready, if he wants to go to the front, if he wants to box, I’ll be ready. I think I’m the best fighter he’s faced. I’m going to expose him, he’s never faced someone as fast as me. I need the perfect fight, in one night, in one fight, I’ll get where I want, I want to be remembered as one of the best and this fight will give me that.”
While Khan took some devastating losses, but the former world champion makes it clear that he never lost at welterweight.
“This fight is at my ideal weight, I lost 140 pounds, it was hard for me to make weight, then at middleweight with Canelo was a lot for me, but at 147 I have given great fights, I have the power, the power, the class, the speed, I have everything,” Khan said.
