    It's not just his chin either. If Gomez can hurt Khan to the body, it doesn't bode well for his chances against Barrera.

    Credit to Khan for taking the fight though. I think he has more cojones...

    It's rare that you get a series where all of the fights are very good - you often get a stinker or two in there. For example, Ali-Frazier II and Leonard-Duran III weren't great fights.
