Khan: I was never meant to accept the fight with Alvarez

Хан: Мне никогда не следовало соглашаться на бой с Альваресом

Amir Khan and Saul Alvarez

Former world champion Amir Khan believes that a bout with Alvarez Saulem is his main mistake.

Former world champion Welterweight champion Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KO) said that it was wrong to agree to fight in the Middleweight division with Saulem Alvarez, after the defeat in which Khan missed two years.

“To tell you the truth, I wasn’t supposed to go into this fight. Physically Alvarez is too big for me. I had the chance, and I thought I would be able to use them, be smart and not get hit, but he managed to overtake me with his fist.

All went well, but this is Boxing and you can get a serious blow. He got me with his right, and I think the blow would have sent in a knockout the majority of people in the world. I made a mistake, but I will not repeat it and not going up in weight class” – quoted Khan BoxingScene.

Earlier it was reported that Khan still hopes to fight Pacquiao.
