Amir Khan doesn’t take criticism

Published in

English boxer and former world champion Amir Khan has admitted that he has given up trying to win over each and every boxing fan, stating that no matter what he does inside the boxing ring, he will always be denounced by a section of the crowd.

The Bolton based brawler takes on Julio Diaz as he looks to get back into the reckoning and try and regain his footing in the division to get another crack at regaining the Light Welterweight Championship.

The match between Diaz and Khan will take place on the 27th of April at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, and on the same night, World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Council (WBC) Light Welterweight champion and his conqueror Danny Garcia takes on Zab Judah. The Pakistani origin boxer came under immense scrutiny from fans and a certain section of the media after he lost the International Boxing Federation or IBF and the WBA titles to Lamont Peterson in a controversial match in Washington DC last year.

Then, Amir Khan was blasted even more after he was floored three times by Garcia within the first four rounds in July 2012. And he has constantly had to live with the criticism that whoever he faces and knocks out is just not good enough, but Khan states that he has learnt to live with the criticism now. He mentioned that when he beat Zab Judah, people were commenting that he was a washed up fighter and gave him no credit.

Golden Boy Promotions, who look after the fights of Amir Khan in the United States have already charted a map for the return of the Englishman to the top and if that means he has to fight against people like Garcia, he is absolutely game for it as well.
