Amir Khan’s Six Best Fights | News | MN2S Talent

Take a closer look at boxing champion and MN2S talent Amir Khan.

Amir Khan is a guy with a lot of great fights under his belt; you only need look at his trophy cabinet to figure that out; he’s won more titles than most boxers do in their career, and he’s still just 29 years old.

The Bolton boxer has been in the spotlight since the tender age of just 17, when he won his first Olympic medal and shot into the limelight, and in that time he’s been involved with some pretty spectacular fights. Check out our pick of the top five Amir Khan fights below.

Amir Khan V Antonio Barrera (2009)

Amir Khan

Antonio Barrera was the first big name that Khan defeated back in 2009, and it was a victory won on the back of a technical decision.

His Mexican opponent was stopped for treatment of a cut in the middle of the fifth round, and by default Amir Khan was able to claim the WBO inter-continental lightweight title.

The cut was opened up early in the fight when Khan and Barrera knocked heads, and by the fifth round was bleeding heavily into Barrera’s eye and it was decided that the injury was too serious for the match to continue.

It was a spectacular victory for Khan, who came into the contest ranked #7, while his opponent was ranked #1 in the lightweight category.

Amir Khan V Andriy Kotelnik (2009)

Just months after his first major victory, Khan won his first world title belt in July 2009.

Speed and movement helped Khan to dominate the ring and his Ukranian opponent for 12 rounds, after which he was declared the winner by judges Juan Manuel Garcia Reyes and Ove Ovesen.

Once more, it was a triumph of the underdog – Khan had entered the ring ranked at #10 in his category, while Kotelnik was ranked #5.

Amir Khan V Paulie Malignaggi (2010)

This fight in May 2010 was the first one that Amir fought on US soil as a professional boxer, and it was a hard won victory in the 11th of 12 rounds; despite his rival begging the referee and onsite doctor to be allowed to continue, he was deemed too badly injured.

His famous jab helped to land the title and his opponent did not have the power necessary to counter his thrusts; the victory propelled Khan to stardom in the USA, and made waves in the American boxing scene thanks to his 23-1 record of wins.

Amir Khan V Marcos Rene Maidana (2010)

In a star-studded Las Vegas fight, Khan beat his rival Maidana on points following a unanimous decision by the judges which allowed Khan to keep hold of his WBA 140lb crown.

Despite a late surge by the Argentinian following Amir’s domination of the early part of the fight, Khan held on and kept the watching audience on the edge of their seats – after the event, the fight was awarded the Boxing Writers Association of America’s Fight of the Year award.

Amir Khan V Zab Judah (2011)

Amir Khan

American Zab Judah put up a good fight in his 2011 defeat to Amir Khan, but following an aggressive start to the match from Khan, Judah was bleeding heavily from the mouth and nose by round four and went down in the fifth round, securing yet another victory for the plucky young Brit from Bolton.

Amir Khan V Devon Alexander (2014)

Amir Khan

Khan climbed a division before his 2014 fight against Devon Alexander, putting him into the welterweight category. Despite a rocky start to this new beginning with two consecutive losses, Khan’s display against American Devon Alexander was to be one of the most comprehensive of his entire career.

Retaining his lighting quick movement and powerful jab, Khan won a landslide victory with a unanimous decision from the judges on points.
