Amir Khan rates his fight above Haye-Chisora
Britain's Amir Khan rates his light-welterweight title fight against Danny Garcia in Las Vegas on Sunday above Haye-Chisora heavweight clash on the same night.
David Haye public brawl with Dereck Chisora will take to the ring in their heavyweight title fight on Sunday and has attracted a lot of interest. However, Amir believes his title fight is more highly rated in the Sunday twin clash.
Amir confidently said, “Boxing fans know my fight is bigger. There's a world title on the line. David is a friend of mine but the fight is not a big fight. There are no titles on the line and I don't think Chisora is in the top 10 in the world.”
Khan believes his title loss to American Lamont Peterson of the WBA and IBF light-welterweight championships last December will surely be more interesting than a non-title fight of Haye-Chisora. Also, a previous rematch cancelled in May due to Peterson failing a drug test will boost the rating of this Sunday match believes the Brit.
Khan says, “I'm in the capital of boxing in Las Vegas. It makes my fight a lot bigger. And the guy I'm fighting Danny Garcia is in the top 10 in the world.”
Besides the rating, Khan also believes that Garcia is a dangerous opponent, “He's made me change to a non-fluoride toothpaste because apparently fluoride is really dangerous, contains rat poison or something and can even kill you.”
