Kotelnik-Khan final presser

By WBA 16/07/2009

 

WBA super lightweight champion Andreas Kotelnik (31-2-1, 13 KOs) and challenger Amir Khan (20-1, 15 KOs) met head-to-head today to discuss their world title showdown on Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. “Body shots,” said Khan. “Kotelnik is a fighter who keeps his guard very high so I think the body shots are going to work as well as the angles, I’ve got to hit and move.

In and out movement is also going to work, but he’s a counter fighter so I have to be one step ahead of him every time.

The key to victory is being patient and using my brains, being careful in the fight and just not making the mistakes we made in the last few fights.” Kotelnik stated, “If I win this fight it will open the road to further fights, especially in America.

Every fight is very important to me and for every fight I train really hard. Nobody can make any predictions, it all depends on what opportunities my opponent gives me to do what I want to do.”
