Amir Khan Dominates Kotelnik To Claim World Title

Amir Khan is the new WBA World Champion!

After a well deserved, hard fought points decision Khan was crowned champ.

This was a very mature performance from Khan, the best yet. And also a well thought out game plan by Freddy Roach. Khan's speed and footwork was too much for Kotelnik to deal with, once Khan hit Kotelnik he was mostly out of distance for any counter punches from Kotelnik. Saying that, Kotelnik did have moments in the fight where he caught Khan with some good shots but Khan was able to handle them well and come back instantly with punches of his own.

Kotelnik looked frustrated with the speed of Khan, and out of his comfort zone from the beginning, he knew he couldn't start slow, so he started pretty quick for what he usually does, but Khan was too fast on his feet, punching and moving. Kotelnik just didn't have the answer. It was a great win for Khan, one that he should get full credit for, he fought a great fight.

Khan showed what he can do when he puts his mind to it. He has matured as a fighter and a person. He really has learnt a lot since joining forces with the Roach camp, and sparring with the pacman has been a blessing for Khan. I can only see him winning if he stays as focused as he is now, and providing he follows Freddy Roaches game plans. It's onwards and upwards for Khan. It does look like the Prescott loss has really made him re-dedicate himself fully to the game.
