    Make your pick. I heard on Sherdog radio that Kahn has a weak chin but I really have no idea, I heard that Roach said he is the best athlete he's worked with though.

    The word is that Kahn has a weak chin, he has always denied this. When Prescott dropped him in less than one minute last year it never helped his case, but the fact remains it was his first loss, he is still a young lad and he has a great talent. Put me down for Kahn.

    You don't develop a chin, it's either you don't have one and if you do it's a matter of how good it is.

    +1 for Barrera, the guy is a legend who's only lost to other legends at LW.

    I've watched every Khan fight and he really doesn't have a chin. He is an amazing striker and overwhelmes opponents with his speed, power and accuracy of punches, but if/when his opponents clock him... he can't take it.

    In the fight I've posted below (his only loss), he is taken out very quickly. Kahn usually sets the pace and didn't have enough time to try to dictate to Prescott.

    And here's a highlight vid:

    The guy is a great fighter, but he's a cocky lil shit too!

    But MAB doesn't have the punching power Prescott has, and if it goes to the later rounds MAB won't be able to keep up with Kahn's pace. Either way it's a fight i'm looking forward to.
