CARL FROCH insists Amir Khan's defeat to Breidis Prescott was NOT a shock.
Khan, 21, saw his unbeaten record destroyed in just 54 seconds in Manchester on Saturday night.
And Froch believes it was just a matter of time before the Bolton fighter came unstuck.
The undefeated super-middleweight said: "I didn't order the fight as I couldn't agree with it being a pay-per-view event.
"But watching the highlights on the news it looked like Amir had been hit with a lump hammer.
CRITICAL ... Carl Froch
"He was knocked out as badly and even faster than when I KO'd Damon Hague in the first round of my British title win in September 2004.
"In my opinion, the so-called soon to be world champion has from the start of his career been overhyped and very carefully matched in order to create an aura of invincibility and sell an unrealistic product to the non-boxing public.
"You can fool some people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all of the time.
"Exposed is a word that springs to mind. There have been question marks on Khan's ability to take a punch and I think we all agree this was answered on Saturday night.
"I'm just glad he is in good health but the road back looks long and hard."
Good points from Froak, but i love this bit:
"the start of his career been overhyped and very carefully matched"
Coming from Froak i find that funny. Like i said good points everyone within uk boxing seems to really dislike Khan even Hamed said he has been fed chumps and paid millions.
