Khan Lost Three Big Fights in last Eight Years
Amir Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) is well aware that he is taking on a very difficult fight. He said to the Independent, “I know this is a dangerous fight if I switch off I will get hurt – but I can win this fight.” There is no doubt that Khan is a very good boxer and a fast puncher, but in the last eight years, he failed to win any of his big fights.
Since 2011, Khan challenged three of the best and lost to all of them. He lost to Danny Garcia, Lamont Peterson and Saul Canelo Alvarez. After a break for almost two years, he came back to win twice in 2018 against Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas. Should Khan win against Crawford, it will be the biggest upset of the year.
Crawford Won the WBO against Jeff Horn
Terence Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) reigned as the undisputed champion in the light-welterweight division. He moved up to 147 pounds last year to win the WBO title against the Australian Jeff Horn. Despite that, Crawford missed fighting against world best fighters; instead, he fought against lesser guys like Felix Diaz, Julius Indongo, Viktor Postol and John Molina. Therefore, Crawford vs Khan predictions will always give a chance for Khan to pull off an upset.
Khan to be Knocked out between 5-8 Rounds
Online sportsbook news in the United Kingdom reported that many analysts have criticized Crawford for taking on such an easy fight. They even expect it to end up one-sided. Crawford fights out of a southpaw stance, possesses good speed and brings excellent power. Whereas, Khan is somehow slow, and he has been knocked out many times so far.
