Amir Khan explains why Chris Algieri is a dangerous opponent

In his own words Amir Khan previews his fight on Friday (May 29) against Chris Algieri in New York

WINNING this fight is everything to me. I’m not looking past this Chris Algieri fight. I know it’s a very dangerous fight for me. Stylistically he’s very dangerous and I’m not going to be looking past it. If I do, I’ll have made a mistake. I’ve looked past fights and made mistakes. It will put me right back where I don’t want to be.

I have to be focused. I have to be disciplined in training camp, not looking past this Chris Algieri fight. I know there are big fights out there like Floyd Mayweather. I just have to stay focused and win this fight and go from there.

Technically I think overall he’s a very good boxer, moves well. He makes a lot of fighters fall short. He’s very skillful. You have to be on your ‘A’ game to beat him.
