Mitchell or Burns Vs Khan

I was just thinking about this and was wondering if you think either would be a good option for Khan in his next few fights? How would you see the fights going? I can't decide. Could be intriguing matchups and would suit Khan because they'd have to move up but would probably do so for the £. Would have thought Khan would be favourite over both of them on points if he jabs, keeps on the back foot and makes sure he throws a maximum of 4 two punch combinations a round. Would either Burns or Mitchell be able to walk him down and get to him?

Khan would still beat both IMO. Burns is great at controlling fights from his range but I think he'd get picked off by Khan's speed (this is a fight where Amir's speed would actually be key). I'm not sure Khan would be able to stop Burns but do think that he'd widely outpoint him over 12.

I think Mitchell could cause problems if he gets his timing right but I'd favour Khan to break him down and maybe stop him late if Amir was anywhere near on form.
I pretty much agree with all of this. I don't think Khan has the power to stop Mitchell late tho, but he might overwhelm him early for a British ref stoppage
You're probably right, Garcia was underrated and had more power and a come forward style. Obviously my hopes of creating thread of the year with my first post have fallen flat as a pancake, the better question is probably, do you see these fights happening?
Garcia, in my mind, is still pretty pony. Khan is just a lot worse than even I thought
Exactly, Burns winning is entirely possible. :yep
Are you pissed again Bill? :lol:
No the scary part is Im sober as a judge, maybe this is a sign to get back on the booze? :lol:

I do kinda see where your coming from. Burns' timing could pose Khan a few problems, but no cant see him winning tbh
