There is hardly anything that demotivates Amir ‘King’ Khan, but sharing his limelight with others is always a matter of concern for him. Khan will be taking on Danny Garcia on July 14 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, and on the same David Haye will be taking on Dereck Chisora.
Being a controversial grudge match, David Haye vs. Dereck Chisora is gaining more hype and public attention than Khan’s encounter with the unbeaten American. Not his usual reaction, but Khan finds himself agitated over the whole scenario.
“Obviously I’m not happy with the situation,” said the Bolton proud. He added, “As professional boxers they are entitled to earn a living but the world knows that this one between me and Garcia is a bigger and better fight in real terms, a genuine world title fight. It’s certainly more classy.”
“I can understand the public interest in the other fight, though it is disappointing. I suppose it’s better to have someone like Chisora fighting inside the ring rather than on the street. He needs shutting up and throwing out. I think David will do just that. He’ll walk straight through Chisora and win easily.”
Khan will taking on Danny Garcia for the WBC light welterweight title, along with the vacant WBA light welterweight title. The showdown will be Garcia’s biggest payday to date while an important milestone in Khan’s portfolio to achieve. Garcia is an unbeaten fighter and it is an opportunity for Khan to cement his legacy at the light welterweight division by being the first one to defeat Garcia.
Khan is talking about leaving the division to join a higher division. Garcia might be his last opponent and so the Bolton proud wants to ensure his last encounter at this division is enjoyed by his fans. Unfortunately, Khan’s dreams of creating a mega-bout between two young fighters might wash away as it seems like fans are more interested in watching Haye’s encounter with Chisora.
