Khan Picks GGG, Canelo Should Be Banned

Amir Khan is no fan of Canelo Alvarez, the man who knocked him out and sent him on a two year sojourn from the sport.

So much so that Khan has been saying since Alvarez’ initial positive test for clenbuterol, that Alvarez should have been banned from the sport.

Now with Alvarez days away from fighting Gennady Golovkin, Khan is predicting that GGG will stop his former opponent in their highly anticipated rematch.

“Is Canelo the same fighter that he was in the first fight? He got caught taking clenbuterol. Now, if he’s off that and he’s been taking it his whole career, mentally it’s definitely going to work against him,” Khan told Talk Sport.

“I can see in some of his pictures that he’s not looking as thick, as big. I don’t know how his power is looking, but mentally it’ll play a big part. I think he should’ve got a ban for good. When you’re taking a substance it’s not fair because you can literally kill someone in the ring. You’re going in there to punch someone in the head.”

“I feel that in this fight, Triple G is going to take it [victory] quite easy. The first fight, I gave it Triple G by two rounds when I’d thought, before the fight, that Canelo was going to win it quite convincingly with his movement. Obviously, I’d shared a ring with him and he beat me. This time, with him being off the drugs, I think mentally it’s going to affect him quite big.”
