Did you miss Amir Khan's milk bottle trick display last month? I did, to be honest. I never saw it until now. I had no idea Amir Khan had punched a milk bottle a few times. Then I saw it, and yeah, he totally punched that milk bottle.

It's certainly a cool trick, and shows the impressive hand speed of Khan (30-3, 19 KO), who returns on Friday to face Chris Algieri on PBC on Spike.

So what's the point of it? Khan told Spike's Dana Jacobson that it's to show everyone that he's the quickest fighter in the world:

Khan will need more than milk bottle tricks to beat Chris Algieri, though! Isn't that a great statement? Doesn't it seem like I said something? I didn't. I said nothing. Obviously Chris Algieri is not a milk bottle. I've used my blogging expertise to fool you.
