Amir Khan couldn’t have fought a better fight against Canelo Alvarez. He was speedy, landed more and was up on all scorecards heading into the sixth round. It was close, but then Alvarez found his range as the fight went on. The power shots that were whiffing early finally landed and put Khan out cold.
And as he was being interviewed in the middle of the ring, he called out the undefeated Gennady Golovkin. If that fight happens, it’ll probably be one of the biggest boxing matches without the names Pacquiao, Mayweather or Klitschko in years.
This could be one of the best KOs of 2016.
