Now I'm not going to knock Khan (I'm not going to mention the fact that when he was ko'd in one round by Breidis Prescott last year he said that some members of the crowd booed him because they were jealous 'I earn more in a few fights than they earn in their entire lives'), I'm not going to mention that - whoops!
Anyhow, my point is really all about the aforementioned Prescott.
As I have mentioned he ko'd Khan last year. And of course last night Khan won the WBA title (against a non puncher, Khan has been VERY carefully matched not facing any puncher other than Prescott) but on Friday night Prescott lost a split decision in Las Vegas on a nothing sort of bill to one Miguel Vazquez.
It's all about connections, Khan the darling of the British multicult media has them, Prescott hasn't.
If, for some reason you think my gripe is based on some sort of racist agenda against Khan you're wrong. I liked him when he turned pro and thought his naivety was quite engaging but has been replaced by a kind of arrogance.
Also on the race thing, one of my all time great sporting heroes is American boxer Marvin Hagler - who of course is black.
Also Prescott is Colombian...
