How Twitter reacted to Amir Khan’s brutal 6th round knockout

| 08.05.2016

Poor Amir Khan. Just when you think he’s about to really hit the big time, out juts that glass jaw and bam! On the floor.

The Bolton native packed on the pounds to fight Mexican middleweight Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, a 25-year-old whose only loss in 48 previous bouts came via the fists of Floyd Mayweather. It proved a remarkably bad decision.

Here it is from another angle.

Khan was stoic from his hospital bed, with words befitting the experience of a man stopped for the third time in his professional career.

A few Arsenal fans, no doubt nervous ahead of their side’s Premier League clash away to Manchester City, decided to tuck into their under-fire team with reference to the vanquished 29-year-old, who was thought to be comfortably ahead on points after out-manoeuvering Canelo during the opening rounds of the fight.

Thankfully, Michael Owen was on hand to offer up his unique brand of cutting-edge insight.

In case you didn’t realise, the link is to the same anodyne quote again on some daft thing called Sportlobster.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
