WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs) proved once again why he is one of the pound-for-pound best after stopping Amir Khan in the sixth-round after Crawford landed an accidental low blow and was ruled the victor after Khan said he was unable to continue. Crawford nearly knocked out Khan (33-5, 20 KOs) out in the opening, knocking him down with a crisp overhand right that was followed by a left hook.
This fight was an opportunity for the 32-year-old Khan to prove that he still was a factor in the welterweight division, but after his performance on Saturday, Khan days as one of the best at 147 are probably over, and according to Crawford’s trainer/manager, Brian McIntyre, Khan should think about retirement.
“I’m going to tell yall, and no disrespect to him, he probably needs to go find a job,” McIntyre said after Crawford’s victory on Saturday night. “He needs to maybe be a commentator for Sky Sports. So, if you get that job, you better give me my cut mother fu****.”
Khan can still make some decent money in boxing, especially if he fights his British rival, Kell Brook. Outside of that, Khan s basically an opponent at this point of his career, and with Khan’s shaky chin, he might want to think about his future.
