    Khan is still relevant even if it is the tail end of his career.

    Prescott template to beat Khan is the weak chin and any puncher can do it to him including Brook.

    I think Khan can beat Garcia because he is a better boxer with his new trainer Virgil.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    He's still a decent fighter that is turning into a gate keeper slowly. I don't think he's relevant at the top of the sport, but I think he's still a named fighter that can make interesting fights.

    I agree his fights are now at a stage were they are predictable.

    We know who he'll beat and we know who he won't.

    A very harsh thread on Khan. Looking at 147 Id give him a decent chance of beating all of them. Below are fight news rankings with the chance I give Khan of winning

    1. Keith Thurman 40%
    2. Kell Brook 33%
    3. Danny Garcia 60%
    4. Timothy Bradley 50%
    5. Jessie Vargas 70%
    6. Shawn Porter 40%
    7. Errol Spence 25%

    Considering most of the time these guys fight they are the 90% fav or bigger Id say Khan is very relevant

    Insanely talented, couldn't take a punch. He was boxing's answer to the girl with the perfect body and a dog face.

    Well can't argue with those hard numbers can we A 60% chance to beat a guy who starched him in 3-4 rounds? Do you think it's for no reason the guy has never rematched anyone who beat him, or had him badly hurt? Only ones I'd agree with are probably Vargas and Bradley, as those guys aren't extremely likely to hurt him, although even they have enough pop to do it. He has literally a 2% chance of beating Spence as far as I'm concerned, and everyone else on the list would have so much to draw from knowing they only need to get to him at any cost. This is even assuming he hasn't become all the more beatable after the bad KO to Canelo and inactivity.

    He's wasted all his time moaning that he belongs with the top tier of the sport and settled on a big check that anyone who's half way honest knew would see him ironed out. Last 'big' win was Alexander who then lost to a journeyman and Porter prior. You're either in the mix or content to watch from the bench.

    There are probably more people watching this thread than those who would attend or PPV his next fight.

    I thought he was doing a TV show? Keeping up with the Khanishans?

    2% might even be high. 12 rounds of avoiding Spence. He would have to have suddenly learned defense and suddenly learned not to dive in. I laugh all the time at people that say he would beat Garcia. Garcia nearly knocked him out about 10 times before he hurt him in what, round 3? The very first hook about 10 seconds in missed by like an inch. Not sure how many times Khan needs to dive into a punch before people get what Khan is. He's this eras Zab Judah "if he just", no, he is what he is.

    @Silkeyjoe

    Utter nonsense

    So you give him 60% chance of beating Garcia who iced him so obviously 60% isn't enough for Khan.

    On that logic you're basically saying he'd lose to the rest as you give them more chance to beat him than Garcia who again, iced him.

    So realistically you're saying Vargas is the only person he would beat and that's fair because Vargas is the worst of the list you posted.
