Carl Froch has told talkSPORT that if he was Amir Khan he would retire from boxing after the British boxer was knocked out by Danny Garcia.
The Bolton-born fighter took on the American in Las Vegas but was stopped in the fourth round as his opponent put in an impressive display, landing several big punches.
And Froch feels that because Khan’s vulnerable chin has been exposed on several occasions he should consider quitting the sport before he gets hurt badly.
He told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “I was quite quick to say Amir Khan should retire because he’s been beaten three times now. He was knocked out badly by Breidis Prescott and he lost to [Lamont] Peterson [previously].
“Having watched the fight I would still retire if I was Khan. I’m not in this game to get beaten, knocked out or injured. It was the manner in which he was beaten.
“When you get knocked out, get hurt and get damaged it’s painful to watch. I don’t know what his mum and dad think about it or his partner, but I’m not in this sport to get injured.
“You’ve got to give Khan his credit he really stayed in there and toughed it out. He got hit with some big, big shots and you could see he wanted to carry on.
“Unfortunately you can’t train the chin. You can’t put something there if you haven’t got it. He’s got a vulnerability there that’s been exposed more than once.
“The top, top fighters of the world, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, the fighters that he’s wanting to fight and he wants to mix it with. If he steps up to that level he hasn’t got much of a chance.”
