Khan said Diaz gave him a great fight and was strong. He said the knockdown was when he was off balance.
Khan's manager said his opponent was tough and said Khan was tripped and hit on his knockdown.

Diaz said he gave up too many rounds.

Amir's promoter said Amir would have a title fight in December.

Overall thoughts: Great fight here. Diaz brought it and looked awesome. I'd love to see him again. He threw some huge bombs and almost got the upset. Khan got some things to work on and it didn't make him look that great.
