Amir Khan says Terence Crawford is not the most dangerous fighter he's faced

Amir Khan is in good spirits for Saturday's big fight

Amir Khan believes that Terence Crawford is not the most dangerous opponent he's faced in his illustrious career.

The 2004 Olympic silver medalist has fought some of the very best during his time in the game and says that the one of the current pound-for-pound kings does not scare him.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT at Madison Square Garden after the fight's final press conference yesterday, Khan was showing absolutely no signs of fear.


After being asked if Crawford is his most dangerous opponent to date, Khan says: "No, he's not, I don't think he's the most dangerous.

"All this talk saying he's this dangerous, I've fought bigger guys, bigger and tougher guys. There's nothing dangerous about this I'm just going to be focused and do what I do.

"They keep believing the hype that he's dangerous he's this, he's that, he's one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

"But look, I've been at this stage many times before and I'm going to go in there and do what I do best.

Khan takes on Canelo

"From Canelo to whoever, I was beating him, obviously got caught with a shot, but he [Crawford] ain't got the power to beat me or knock me out, he ain't got the speed or technique, that's it."

One of the big issues with fighting Crawford is his ability to switch from southpaw to orthodox and vice-versa, but this is not fazing Khan one bit.

"He can do what he wants, we've been working with southpaw, orthodox fighters, we've been with switch hitters, I've worked with all different types of styles," Khan says.

"Whatever he brings to the table, we know we've got in our hands."

Crawford can switch stances with ease

Prior to Saturday night's bout, a lot of the talk is still centred on a potential mega-fight between Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.

When Khan was asked about fighting the man that destroyed his domestic enemy Kell Brook, he was refused to give too much away.

"That could be in the mix but at the moment," Khan says. "I'm focusing on one big fight which is this one and after this one, whichever fight they want to bring.

"I've never shied away from any fight, even if it means going back to UK for Kell Brook."

Brook is still a possibility for Khan

When asked about Brook, Khan simply says: "Let's see, let's see how I feel."

Saturday night promises to be an enthralling night in New York City.
