English boxer Amir Khan has urged unbeaten English Heavyweight fighter Tyson Fury to keep his mouth shut. The 24 year old Fury, who is often considered as someone who uses his lips do the talking as often as his fists is in line to make his debut in the United States of America against Steve Cunningham, which is scheduled to take place at the fabled Madison Square Garden in New York City, a match he is expected to breeze through quite easily.
Fury has ripped into the International Boxing Federation or the IBF Cruiserweight champion Cunningham already but according to Khan, this trash talking will not help his compatriot win any him fans in the United States. Khan has a match scheduled for the 27th of April at Sheffield in England but with most of fights having taking place in England, Amir Khan knows exactly what it takes to make the fans tick across the pond.
According to Khan, his compatriot still has everything to prove in the sport and he is yet to win anything in the sport. He mentioned that if he is in the United States very early in his career and still talks aloud as if he is already the reigning Heavyweight champion and comes across as arrogant, people will not take it too well and that might just turn out to be a bad thing for the fighter in the future.
Khan further mentioned that people will appreciate it and respect him if he performs well and wins against Cunningham.
Amir Khan is also looking for a big victory against Diaz himself when he faces the former IBF Lightweight champion at home and he is hopeful and confident that a win against the Mexican will rejuvenate his career after suffering back to back defeats last year.

It has merely been two months since Hollywood starlet Hayden Panettiere reconciled with her former boyfriend and World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and now, rumors are already circulating that the two have become engaged and are getting ready to get married at the end of the year. Although the reports have not been confirmed by the Nashville star, but according to a source very close to her, it is true that the two have become engaged.
The source also claimed that very few people actually know about the engagement and she is keen to keep it that way and that is the main reason why she is not wearing her engagement ring publicly. The source also claimed that the pair is planning to get hitched in a few months’ time in a summer wedding. After Hayden had broken up with her former boyfriend, the paparazzi had been claiming that she has reconciled with the 36 old Ukrainian, but those reports were shunned before the two were seen kissing publicly at a Miami Heat NBA game at the American Airlines Arena.
And now, with reports already emerging that the two have becoming engaged, there might just be some semblance of truth in the reports. Hayden and the younger of the two Klitschko brothers first began dating back in 2009 but after going steady for nearly two years, the couple split citing differences of opinion.
She briefly dated Scott McKnight but that relationship also ended in December 2012. And although the two are yet to confirm they are back together, the reports of them kissing have hit the headlines, prompting the two to state that they have been friends for over five years and now, they are just very close buddies.

With still no opponent locked on to face Amir Khan when the English boxer returns to the ring on the 20th of April, the world of boxing is constantly speculating on who the next opponent for the former Junior Welterweight champion for the April might be. After losing to Danny Garcia in a shock result, having been completely devastated by the punches of the American last July, Khan bounced back with an easy victory over Carlos Molina in December and according to many, he looked like the boxer of old.
One fighter who would have been able to provide stiff competition to the Bolton based boxer was Josesito Lopez but the representatives of the two boxers could agree on the terms of the fight and the match did not go ahead, leaving Amir Khan without an opponent with just two months left for the bout. And now, the name of former two time champion Julio Diaz has been thrown into the hat by the man himself. Speaking to a journalist on Tuesday, Diaz stated that he knows Khan and his representatives have been searching for an opponent for quite some time.
He stated that he just wants them to know that he is ready for a fight with him, adding that with very few options left, he wants to prove himself once again against someone like Khan. Diaz is coming off split decision draw against Shawn Porter on the 15th December undercard of the Khan-Molina fight, a result that was extremely impressive for the 33 year old.
Diaz stated that he is extremely fresh now and if he can stay disciplined and healthy, he can be as good as anyone before going on to state that Amir Khan would have a tougher challenge compared to Molina if he fought him.
