Amir Khan Breaks Down Fantasy Match With 'The Other' Amir Khan

Aug 25, 2018

What would happen if Amir Khan the mixed martial artist faced Amir “King” Khan the world champion boxer in a mixed martial arts bout?

Evolve’s lightweight star gave a quick breakdown of a fantasy match-up against his namesake in his Face To Face interview with ONE Championship’s Matt Connolly.

The British pugilist has expressed his interest in the past about testing his punching prowess in the cage, but the 23-year-old Singaporean does not think that would be such a good idea – especially if he were to face him.

“I don’t think he’d survive a round with me. I mean, he’s just a boxer – he’s one-dimensional,” he said.

“He doesn’t have a good chin too. Especially with the small gloves, I don’t think it would be a good night for him.”

Check out the rest of the video above, in which Khan discusses his upcoming bout with Honorio “The Rock” Banario at ONE: BEYOND THE HORIZON,  in Shanghai, China on 8 September.

He also shares some personal stories, including how he met his girlfriend, his golfing habits, and more.
