OFTEN Amir Khan has been accused of letting his heart rule his head, of losing the plot, of showing balls rather than brains, and of acting without any consideration for his health or future.

This all changed against Terence Crawford tonight (April 20) in New York, however. At Madison Square Garden, quite the opposite was true, and plenty didn’t like it.

The fight began the way many expected, with Khan playing the role of old. He started fasted, he made a glaring mistake for which he was swiftly punished, and he found himself on the canvas. So far, so normal.
