'Matured' Khan says won't let Garcia's racist father shift his focus from Molina bout
London, Dec 12(ANI): British boxer Amir Khan has said he has matured since his defeat at the hands of Danny Garcia, and added he won't let the American boxer's racist father affect his focus this time with verbal jibes during his bout with unbeaten Carlos Molina.
The Molina camp is trying to inflame Khan by drafting in Garcia Snr, whose racist insults caused our boy from Bolton to lose his head almost literally in the second of the successive defeats, which have knocked him off his world championship throne and into resurrection mode.
It is a mischievous move by Team Molina but Khan is unperturbed.
"You will see a different, more mature me in this fight. I let Danny's Dad get to me and I went to punish them with a knock-out too quickly, instead of continuing to break him down, and got caught with a punch from nowhere," the Daily Mail quoted Khan, as saying.
"That's why Molina has brought him in but it won't happen this time. I've grown up and nothing will take my focus off my boxing," he added.
"I will be smart and pick my moments to go for the finish. Just as I am insisting on random blood testing for drugs before all my fights, so that I don't suffer again the way I did in the previous defeat by Lamont Peterson, who we found was on steroids," he said. (ANI)
