Ahead of the World Boxing Council middleweight title showdown to hold between Amir Khan and Saul Alvarez, British boxing legend Lennox Lewis is confident that Amir Khan will come out victorious.

It is the belief of Lennox that Khan turn the toss around and put public opinions to nullity by defeating Saul Alvarez when they both meet on Saturday.

The boxing legend made it known while speaking BBC Sports on Friday night that “Khan can win if he doesn’t mix it up with Canelo and uses the sweet science instead”

 

According to the former British fighter, “Khan is a great boxer, moves well and throws great combinations. He will need controlled movement against Canelo, not running around for the sake of it.

Lennox is relaxed and has expressed how the presence of Khan’s trainer, Virgil Hunter will help the boxer build confidence and motivation.

“You’ve also got to remember that it’s not him going into the fight by himself, it’s him and his trainer

“So if Khan strays from the game-plan, Virgil is there saying: ‘Hey, what are you doing? You were winning each round sticking to the game-plan.’

“I am worried about what will happen when Khan gets hit, but he’s been down in other fights and I think mentally he’ll be able to overcome it.”
