Twitter Reacts To Canelo’s Spectacular KO Win Over Amir Khan

Few things light up Twitter quite like a sensational KO, and when Saul Alvarez’s ruthless right-hand accounted for the consciousness of Amir Khan on Saturday, there were widespread expressions of awe throughout the social media platform.

However, admiration for the painful yet picturesque finish seemed secondary in the aftermath of the fight, as most observers were quick to offer words of respect for Khan and his brave efforts against the bigger man.

The Bolton native’s fellow fighters in particular commended his courage.

Alvarez was afforded respect too, and not just for the finish. Following the fight-ending shot, the Mexican knelt at Khan’s side in a wonderful show of concern and respect.

His gesture didn’t go unnoticed.

Khan later took to Twitter to provide an update and assured fans that he was fine.

There were a couple of elephants in the room too. One rather subtly and respectfully made his presence known….

….the other, not so much.

It was Golovkin, however, that garnered the attention. GGG vs Canelo is obviously the fight that everyone wants to see.

Even Khan’s coach, Virgil Hunter, called on Alvarez to step up.

Encouragingly, Alvarez was humming the right tune post-fight, indicating that he was game, and even suggesting that he was willing to take on Golovkin at the full middleweight limit of 160lbs.
