Amir Khan: One mistake against Canelo can get me hurt

By Bad Left Hook

Amir Khan says he’ll be focused for his fight with Canelo Alvarez, realizing that any mistake could be a game changer.

On not doing a rehydration clause

“We want to fight Canelo, the best Canelo out there. After I beat him, I don’t want any excuses. So we agreed to it. Golden Boy said, ‘We don’t want to put that in.’ I said, ‘It’s fine.'”

On fighting at the heavier weight

“Eating normal. Keeping all of the muscle. Keeping the strength. Just training at this weight. Normally, the way I look at it, I go down two weights to make a normal fight at 147. This time I’m gonna stay the same weight. I’m gonna be happier at the weight. I’m gonna walk into the ring probably at 160. … I’m probably about 165 (right now). I’ve got a bit to lose. I’m not out of shape, but I’ve been about 165. I’ll probably be my best about 159, 158.”

On maybe losing something not cutting weight

“There’s some truth in it. When you have to lose the weight, you’re geared up and focused when you get close to the fight, keeps you working, gets you focused, but I’m going to be ready regardless. I’m up against a guy who wants to hurt me, wants to beat me. I have to be focused. If he wasn’t a big puncher, maybe I wouldn’t have thought that, but because I know he’s a big puncher, at 160 he’s a big puncher, knocking out guys, so I know fighting at 155 he’s going to have some power. I have to be smart. I can’t make any mistakes.”

On staying out of a firefight

“You know when you’re fighting someone this big and strong, you’re not going to stand there and trade. You’re going to be smart, you’re going to use your boxing skills, you’re going to box and move. I think with this fight, I’m gonna stick to the game plan. Virgil’s got a game plan for me. I’m going to be more focused because I know one mistake in this fight can get me in trouble and get me hurt.”

On the size of his sparring partners

“A couple of middleweights, maybe a couple of super middleweights.”

On pro boxers in the Olympics

“I think it’s a great idea. It gives a great opportunity to those Olympians, and also those professionals who didn’t go to the Olympics and then become Olympians — you have to have a lot of respect for these Olympians, because they are some very, very good fighters. I had the record of going to the Olympics and then turning professional and becoming a world champion. Most Olympic medalists become world champions and very good professional boxers. I think it’ll be great, because now, having the headguards removed, and the vests removed, I think they’re making it similar to the professionals. Also I’ve heard that the rounds have gone to three minutes. I think it’s a great idea. I think it could definitely work.”

On trying to win a gold medal

“It’s something I would consider, yeah, going back to the Olympics and winning a gold medal.”

Guillermo Rigondeaux calls out Frampton, Santa Cruz, Quigg, everyone

By Scott Christ

Guillermo Rigondeaux will fight everybody. Or anybody. Or whatever.

Guillermo Rigondeaux has decided that being quiet just doesn’t pay off, so he’s taken to Twitter to call out, like, everybody in or around his weight. Well, a few people, anyway. And mostly playing off of what happened this past weekend.

Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KO) is still the top fighter at 122 pounds in most minds, despite the fact that he was stripped of both the WBA and WBO titles late last year. Following Saturday’s fights, where Carl Frampton beat Scott Quigg and Leo Santa Cruz beat Kiko Martinez, Rigondeaux said he’d fight all of them monthly, after facing Jazza Dickens on March 12:

@JazzaDickens10 on March. @RealCFrampton on April, @scottquigg on May and Al Haymon favorite little baby @leosantacruz2 on June. BRING IT!

— Guillermo Rigondeaux (@RigoElChacal305) February 28, 2016

Rigondeaux’s fight with Dickens (21-1, 6 KO) isn’t expected to be a serious challenge, but the Cuban says that the British champion has his respect for stepping up to the plate:

The only of these guy that got my absolute respect 2day is @JazzaDickens10 . He made no excuses. Hope these guy learn something from him

— Guillermo Rigondeaux (@RigoElChacal305) February 28, 2016

The Rigondeaux-Dickens fight will take place at Echo Arena in Liverpool, Dickens’ hometown, on a card headlined by Terry Flanagan vs Derry Mathews on BoxNation.
