Last night, I witnessed the delivery of the perfect shot that boxing desperately needed. The shot came in an HBO fight between The Champion Amir Khan, and the undefeated challenger, Danny Garcia. Amir Khan was scheduled to fight Lamont Peterson, but when Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone, Danny Garcia was selected as a replacement.
Amir Khan was a 6-1 favorite and by far the bigger man. He came swinging and landing fast, hard shots and early on in fight, it seemed that Khan would stop Garcia. Garcia on the other hand showed tremendous poise while weathering the storm and keeping his hands up, on defense. Then in the third round, Amir Khan jumped in to throw a wild combination, but got caught by a perfectly timed and placed counter left hook. Khan went down and was badly hurt. With all credit to Khan, he fought valiantly despite being on extremely shaky legs.
Khan survived the third round, but got knocked down two more times in the fourth round and the referee, Kenny Bayless jumped in and stopped the fight after giving Khan an eight count. This was truly an amazing fight on HBO. A fight that boxing has needed for a very long time. Amir Khan is a true warrior. He fights anyone and everyone that’s put in front of him. Unfortunately, he did not come out victorious in this one. It’s going to be a great summer for boxing!!
