Amir Khan has been branded "overrated" by Danny Garcia's father and trainer Angel.

Angel Garcia has taken a further swipe at Amir Khan and insisted that the Bolton boxer is "overrated".

Khan was knocked out by Danny Garcia, Angel's son, in the fourth round of their Las Vegas clash in July.

The trainer thinks that Khan's inability to take a punch means he is not a top-level fighter.

He told Boxing Scene: "I said it from the beginning and I'll say it again and nobody is going to change my mind, Khan was overrated.

"He didn't have no chin. How can you be a great fighter with no chin. You have to have a chin and Danny proved that."

Khan is due to make a return to the ring before the end of the year, while Garcia defends his world title in a rematch against Erik Morales on Saturday, October 20.
