In a shocker, Amir Khan will move up two weight classes to challenge Canelo Alvarez for the lineal middleweight crown. It was a move no one sees it coming. The fight was announced Tuesday to the surprise of the boxing world. It draws different reactions from social media.
The fight will be on HBO-PPV, on May 7 at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Khan’s critics mouth were shut, especially those who said he’s ducking rival Kell Brook. It takes real guts and balls to take the bigger, stronger and powerful Mexican star, two weight classes above where Khan is campaigning.
Two fighters. Campaigning in separate weight class. Clashing in another weight class.
