Khan heads into make or break fight

Amir Khan will be looking to show that he has the potential to be one of the best fighters around again when he takes on Carlos Molina in Los Angles on Saturday evening.

Although this should be a fight that Khan is winning comfortably, his recent form suggests that it might be a tough one for him as he has lost his last two.

If the fighter from Bolton is to go on and box the best in the world, then he needs to make sure he is winning fights and if he does not come out on top here, he might be having a serious think about his career in the sport.

Khan looks as though he is in great physical and mental condition at the moment though and there is no surprise that he is the big favourite to come out on top here. Ladbrokes have him at 1/8 to be victorious.

After being knocked down three times by Danny Garcia earlier in the year, the British fighter need to put on show here and prove to anyone doubting him what a talent he can be on his day.

As for Molina, although he is the big underdog at 8/1, he might be quietly confident of a victory given his opponents recent record.

The Mexican has an impressive professional record as well and is not just here for a big pay-day. He feels as though he is capable of causing an upset and really announcing himself to the boxing world.

It will be a very tough evening for him, and Khan knocking out Molina has a betting offer of 4/11. For that extra bit of value though, you can back the favourite winning in the fifth round at 10/1 with Blue Square.

It certainly has the makings of a superb fight.

Carl Froch v Andre Ward Preview

Ahead of this weekend's fight with American Andre Ward, British boxer Carl Froch has admitted that he is more than prepared to fight dirty in order to get the job done.

The pair do battle early on Sunday morning in Atlantic City and as far as boxing betting pundits are concerned Froch is the underdog, but he is ready to do all it takes to get the win.

He said: "Ward is a dirty fighter, it's as simple as that. If he headbutts me, he'll get a headbutt or elbow straight back. That's how it works."

"You cannot wait 10 minutes to do it, you have to do it instantly. That way the referee is under to b*****k both of us, not just one fighter."

"It was like that against Glen Johnson in the semi-final when he hit me low first thing. The first punch I threw after that was a left hook that hit him straight in the b******s.

"If he referee doesn't do his job, then I'll do it for him. I make no secret of that. It's all about winning by any means."

""I need to say to myself, 'right OK, I need to bite down on to my gumshield even harder if I can' because I've got to restore Britain's pride."

"Boxers are going away, not getting decisions and are losing so it's not looking good for us as a nation. It puts even more pressure on me, but I don't mind. "I desperately want us back on the world map. We can't be a nation of losers."

As mentioned though, Ward is the favourite as far as the betting odds are concerned. He is 4/11 with Skybet for the win, while Froch is 5/2 with Ladbrokes.

The unlikely draw is then available at 28/1 with StanJames. One thing for sure though is that it will be explosive and that Froch will be loudly cheered by the huge army of British boxing fans making the trip.

Khan reserves praise for recently retired Haye

Amir Khan has praised David Haye who recently retired from boxing . The former heavyweight World Champion followed through on his promise to retire before the age of 31, thus ensuring he didn’t fight on when he was past his best.

Khan – who still has many years before he needs to think about retirement – says he respects Haye’s decision, even if there is still a bit of unfinished business  between him and the Klitschko brothers.

He said: “When you put your heart and your mind into something like he has, then you have to go with it. He knows his body better than anyone else and knows why he wants to walk away before he is 31.”

It has been rumoured that Haye could postpone his retirement if a fight with Vitali Klitschko is agreed of course and Khan believes that if this happens, the Englishman is more than capable of coming out on top.

Khan continued: I'm sure there will be a few more twists and turns in this story of Haye vs Klitschko. And there is no reason why Haye wouldn't emerge on top if there is ever a next time - whatever brother he fights.

"There is so much for Haye to be proud of despite the criticism he received after he dropped a points verdict to Wladimir in Germany.”

Another significant figure in British boxing, Ricky Hatton, would like to have seen Haye fight on though, saying that he still has the ability to prove some critics wrong.

The Hitman said: “David Haye should fight on to secure his legacy. He will be the first to admit he is better than his last performance against Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko. And I have a feeling in my water he might yet give it one last go.”

“For David, it was the night he came second to Klitschko and the manner of his defeat. That is why I believe Haye should fight on, to set the record straight - but I totally respect the decision he has come to.”

Haye appears to be sticking by his decision at the moment though, regardless of the pressure from the likes of Hatton to continue.

No boxing to bet on? Why not play some poker while you're waiting for the next world class fight?

David Haye vs Wladimir Klitschko Preview

The fight that most people never thought would happen is on – but even after an agreement was signed some doubts still hung in the air.

A fight between David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko had been lined up in 2009 but after Haye was forced to pull out through injury, both fighters have been involved in a very public slanging match as a fight looked too difficult to sort out.    

A developing argument over ticket allocation threatened to derail the bout this time round, but now David Haye has confirmed the bout is “100% on”, the fight the heavyweight division so badly needs looks set to go ahead on 2nd July.

The unification bout will take place in Germany, something which could hand a major advantage Klitschko after the Ukrainian spent most of his time in the ring endearing himself to German fans. With a partisan crowd of 57,000 on his side in the Imtech Arena, Haye has taken a massive risk taking the fight abroad, something which could come back to haunt him.

Relations between the two camps have always been frosty at best after Haye’s continual mocking of both Klitschko brothers, meaning there is more than a little spice to this fight. Klitschko will look to use his height and reach advantage to keep Haye and his deadly “Hayemaker” out of harms way, but whether he has enough ring smarts to keep the lighting quick Haye quiet for potentially 12 rounds remains to be seen.

The Briton of course has experience of fighting bigger men after he overcame the “Beast from the East” Nikolai Valuev, and will have to use more than just his raw power to overcome the younger of the Klitschko brothers. Wladimir, somewhat unfairly has a reputation for having a glass jaw, and while he has three losses to his name and has often had to pick himself up from the canvas, his heart and determination cannot be questioned.

Haye may well prove too much for the Ukrainian, and his superior athleticism, harder hitting and relative youth should be enough to counteract the at times limited threat of Klitschko.

Having repeatedly stated his desire to reitre by the age of 31, Haye is entering the climax of his career, and a win over first Wladimir and then Vitali would give him a chance to prove he is the best heavyweight in the world right now.

He will attempt to shake off the stigma of his last fight against Audely Harrison, a contest which caused outrage amongst fans who demanded their money back after Harrison perceived lack of effort, and there is no finer way for Haye to make him the darling of British boxing once more than with a win over the lumbering, yet awkward Wladimir Klitschko.
