article imageAmir Khan back on track with TKO win over Carlos Molina

British boxing idol Amir Khan has ended his two-fight losing streak after scoring a TKO decision over unbeaten Carlos Molina at the Los Angeles Sports Arena Saturday night.
Khan is coming off a TKO loss to Danny Garcia at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada last July 14.
Prior to his devastating loss to Garcia, Khan lost his WBA (Super) & IBF Light Welterweight titles to Lamont Peterson in December 2011 via a split decision.
Khan dominated the fight, scoring almost at will until the tenth round when Molina's handlers decided to call it a night for the unbeaten Molina, who was blooded as a result of Khan's constant jabs and power punches that landed on targets.
Khan fought with extreme caution against Molina, maintaining proper distance and avoiding reckless attacks like what he did during his brutal fourth round loss to Garcia.
After the victory Saturday night, Khan called out former foe Danny Garcia and challenged him to a rematch.
"I'm ready for Danny Garcia anywhere, any time, any place," Khan said (via BBC News.) "He was lucky. He caught me with a good shot.
Khan wanted Garcia to know that he is now ready to face him again under a new trainer, who thought him new techniques of the game.
"You could see the way I was fighting, more patiently. At times he did catch me. I just composed myself, stuck with the game-plan and stayed with it."
Khan is now under the tutelage of Virgil Hunter after junking former trainer Freddie Roach following his loss to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia.
“Virgil is a great trainer. He’s making me better at boxing and being a complete fighter. He’s teaching me speed, patience and picking the right shot and when to throw it," Khan said
“Sometimes I’m too brave for my own good. Now I know it’s better to stick to the game plan. I’m my worst critic. After I lose a fight, I ask myself, ‘What did I do wrong? Why did I make those mistakes.'”
With the win over Molina, Khan's professional record has moved up to 30 fights, winning 27 and losing only three since he turned pro in 2005.
