Amir Khan says during the undercard final presser of “The Moment” boxing event that takes place this Saturday night at the MGM Grand Las Vegas that he definitely wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. But before that Khan has a tough assignment to handle in Luis Collazo who looks rip and ready to fight during the presser.
I think what Amir Khan needs to do in this fight is to throw fast combination from the outside. And then move around; reset his position to avoid counters. But as what they told, every fighter has a game plan until he gets hit. Amir used to throw his game plan out to the window once get hit and wobble. He tends to brawl when he’s in trouble, wherein the best thing to do is to try to clinch and smother an opponent’s finishing attacks.
If Khan will do the same if he will get hit by Collazo; he’ll be in trouble. He just needs to fight smart and use his quickness. He said that he’s a different fighter now at welterweight. I hope his chin is a little bit stronger now because welterweight punches have different impact.
As for Collazo, I think he needs to lure Khan in a hit-me, I’ll hit you back action in order to land his own punches because I believed Khan is far too quicker than he is. And once he touches the vulnerable chin of Khan, he can force him to trade blow by blow. And I think that’s Collazo’s best chance.
I think Khan will fight an intelligent fight comes Saturday night. Amir Khan UD 12 Luis Collazo.
