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?

I think Burns has a chance against Khan to be honest, Khan would be favourite obviously but what can Khan do apart from throw a flashy looking flurry, he has been well and truly worked out, I don't see it working against Burns tight guard, Burns may even stop him?
:lol: What? Its not as daft as it sounds, Burns is an improving fighter with a lot of confidence, Khan is an arrogant little bastard that already thinks he's gods gift, his arrogance will cost him the fight. :lol:
Not sure about this. I havn't seen loads of Burns as i'm more of a casual but he doesn't seem like the type of fighter who takes the fight to his opponent and his power doesn't seem great at lightweight. If anyone has a chance of knocking Khan out it'd probably be Mitchell. Burns would have to change his style from what I've seen and Khan would have to carry on making the same mistakes as he's done in previous fights.
I may have overstepped the mark with the Burn's stopping him comment :lol: (not impossible though given Khans non existent ability to take a punch) but there is no danger of Khan not making the same mistakes, he will always make the same mistakes, his arrogance and general thickness will make sure of that, with the right gameplan its possible Burns would win imo.
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
It is a bit of a long shot truth be told, I don't know I just have this feeling Burns would get the better of him.
