Carlos Molina vs. Amir Khan
Out of any boxer on this list, I believe Amir Khan has the most to prove in 2013.
Khan enters a new chapter of his career going into 2013. Having dropped Freddie Roach as his trainer after a knockout loss to Danny Garcia, Khan now looks to fight with a more disciplined style under the guidance of Virgil Hunter.
We got our first glimpse of Hunter's version of Khan this past December. While Amir dominated his previously unbeaten opponent, Carlos Molina, he also seemed to make many of the same mistakes which plagued him against past opponents. Dropping his hands and eating too many clean shots will certainly hurt him against any serious contender.
Although Khan possesses the physical tools to be successful in the ring, it will be interesting to see if he can focus and stick with a game plan that requires him to be a more disciplined boxer.
