Floyd Mayweather Jr. Could Face Amir Khan Next
MR. TOM BRITT
EVEN THE TELABOM IS ASHAMED TO IDENTIFY WITH KHAN.CANT BLAME THEM FOR THAT.Posted September 20, 2013
May 3, 2014 live from the U.K. on Showtime/PPV: Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs Amir Khan. WBC/RingMagazineWelterweight-IBF Welterweight unification showdown. Stay tuned!Posted September 20, 2013
@big fitted–You have to be kidding me. in PacMan avenging his fight with Bradley. We all know who won that fight. Good thing about that is that that Judge will not be in any more fights robbing the true winner of their fights. I can see that you r a Mayweather fan. Of course he is afraid. Believe me, if Mayweather would have wanted to fight Pacman years ago, he would have done it. Yes,now he and many people like you are saying he is washed up, off the juice. My God, please make people understand that if Mayweather, and that’s a big IF, would ever fight Pac Man, he would finally put everything to rest. But like i said earlier, that will never happen.Posted September 20, 2013
Khan would’t stand a chance. Mayweather is a cut above every boxer he has ever faced. Some great opponents he made look amateur because of an ability to work out fighting styles in the ringPosted September 20, 2013
After what Floyd did to a 172 pounds Canelo, Garcia will get kill agaimst the much Bigger #1 p4p Floyd……..Floyd has nothing more to prove at the welterweight div. especially not the light welterweight div., Floyd has to move up in weight and challenge Trout, Lara, Molina, Martisiyan and GGG.Posted September 20, 2013
look there is no one that can match Floyd right now stop dreaming people , I don’t like that there is no one that can challenge Floyd but this is the facts people so stop talking with your head up your a_s.Posted September 20, 2013
If Floyd wants an easy fight Khan will be next. All that money for schooling an over rated chump.Posted September 20, 2013
@bobby c no offense im so tired of people ranting about who’s scared of pac.NO ONE at all is afraid of him not even junior welts coming off of losses. pac is off the juice and is exposed for what he truly is an above average fighter.arguebly .ps isnt fighting a welter his next fight. that doesnt warrant fear sir.tell him to avenge his loss to bradley if hes not afraid.Posted September 20, 2013
disagree bearcat if khan beats devon and rematches garcia and beat him then it WILL be khan having his named frequently mentioned in the mayweather sweepstakesPosted September 20, 2013
If Boxing wants the best ethnic opponent for Floyd it is Manny Paq not Khan.Posted September 20, 2013
We all know that Mayweather does not want to fight Pac Man. If there is one boxer that he is afraid of, is Pac Man. No matter that he has 1 loss, because I do not count the Bradley loss. And don’t get me wrong, I respect Marquez, he a good boxer, but I think he got lucky in knocking Pac Man out, because he was struggling before that knockdown. Now as for the Pac Man-Mayweather fight, they talk about Bob Arum and HBO. Come on folks, don’t tell me that there cannot be a deal made. we all know that money talks. But the only reason this fight will not happen is Mayweather does not want to fight Pacman, because he wants to cherry pick his fights to stay undefeated for the rest of his fights left. And then trying to fight Knan and Garcia. Come on folks, we all know he will win these fights. Khan, he will destroy. garcia, he will probably win a UD because of all the points they will take from Garcia for hitting below the belt and for holding. We all can wish for a Pac Man-Mayweather fight. But for it to happen, I don’t think so.Posted September 20, 2013
just to give you people some hot news Amir vs Mayweather is NEXT there isnt going to be a DEVON alexander fight!! you heard it here first peace out!! will be announced shortly!!!Posted September 20, 2013
Why Khan is even considered for this fight ill never know. Knocked out cold inside 60 sec vs bum bredis prescot! A list of opponents stopped on cuts and bull crap stoppages with refs jumping in. Men in hats score cards home town wins and made up story’s of failed drug tests to get him titles back, vacant title bouts with fighters like Molina who doesn’t deserve to fight for a title with anyone at any weight never mind one he has never been at and nor did Khan. embarrassing displays vs opponents like Diaz and title shots in weight divisions he has never been in on the back of losses and exposing fights vs laughable opponents. And now they try to shove him down our throats in a Mayweather Clash? Give me a break this is getting embarrassing not just for Khan but the whole boxing game and its credibility. There is just one word that describes Khan and this hole show of failed attempts to bluff this fake up to fight Mayweather. MANUFACTURED! Its a god damn conspiricy is what it isPosted September 20, 2013
look how floyds left side of his face is exposed! thats his weakness. hes got a habbit of doing that quite often. hes open to a straight right,straight left followed with a right hook!Posted September 20, 2013
MR. TOM BRITT
I AGREE, AND THERE WOULD BE NO PFV BECAUSE ONLY SASSIEST WOULD WANT TO WATCH THAT MISS MATCH.Posted September 20, 2013
@ real and true boxing fan(i doubt you are) where did you get this sh#t that Floyd jr waited for Oscar and Cotto to get old? man research before you write cr3p here. Floyd did challenge Oscar but they said he was a huge risk with little reward. Floyd ducking Cotto? really man? how old is Cotto and how old is Mayweather? Cotto’s camp saw how Floyd demolished Gatti in 2005 and they said cotto wasn’t to face MayweatherPosted September 20, 2013
keith thurman would be a good fight, but no way in hell floyd takes that tough fight. cost/benefit ratio says it’ll be too good a fight for him to say yes.Posted September 19, 2013
Tipical igny fool talking about steeling on fools.Posted September 19, 2013
who would be stupid enough to $$$ buy this fight? Might as well throw your money down the drain. Floyd is going to knock this no-chin, no power wash up in 5 rounds. No Thx.Posted September 19, 2013
Check ma pockets cuz u aint gota job.. Go stands in da welfea line B.Posted September 19, 2013
Now every ignant thinks he Floyd, “im goimg to knock you out”…. If your anything like your champ you wont be hurtin nobidy fool…Posted September 19, 2013
Iiiiiiggggggnaaaant uhhhh haa!Posted September 19, 2013
Hold up a sec, u an ignant mutha.Posted September 19, 2013
@ hold up a sec, lick the sweat off my balls ,
May never “FACED” anyone and hes not going to start with Amir.Posted September 19, 2013
Get ready for 4 more easy fights for Floyd. Showtime knows how to build up any of his challengers to make them look more dangerous than they really are. The goal is simple for Mayweather, get through the rest of his contract and finish as an undefeated fighter. Floyd wants his legacy to be that he never lost, that is more important to him than fighting potential threats. He’ll leave it to the networks to make his challengers look good, and then he will give them a little 12 round boxing lesson.Posted September 19, 2013
Gobe me a f break! This is getting ridiculous. Do they think fans are stupid? Well may be they are, because they paid for that fraud of a fight against canelo. Please not khan. I would loose a lot of the respect I have for Floyd if he went with another clown. He needs to fight ggg period. He would beat every one else fairly easily, including many p.Posted September 19, 2013
You guys do not know the boxing world.
Floyd will and is picking Khan for a fight in the summer next year. What Mayweather wants Mayweather gets.
Danny is like Canelo.Posted September 19, 2013
The DEAD-GAME PITBULL
That is complete BS! I rather watch Garcia vs Mayweather. Why in the hell would Khan get a shot at Floyd anyway? It’s not like he has beat Alexander or anything. If Alexander beats Khan, he should get the title shot after Danny.Posted September 19, 2013
Khan has not earned a shot at Floyd.Posted September 19, 2013
ROBERT YOUR MAD BECAUSE YOUR BROKE AND CAN’T PLEASE THE LADIES !Posted September 19, 2013
floyd fights guys he can beat that have a big following and can bring the $$$…amir khan & manny pac are his next 2 opponents !!!Posted September 19, 2013
Hope Floyd fights khan and beats him with speed accuracy. And just destroys him at all the things khan reckons hes the king of coz i cant stand khan sayin hes the best when hes a contender at bestPosted September 19, 2013
Floyd should go down south for some easy money retirement,1/3 billion man.Posted September 19, 2013
Nobody in the Welterweight especially the jr. Welterweight have a chance with Floyd who with ease could handle a 172 pounds Canelo….Floyd needs to move up in weight and take on Trout, GGG and Ward.Posted September 19, 2013
The Pacman is probably the only boxer in that weight class that could beat Mayweather.Posted September 19, 2013
THE REASON HE GOT “0” IS FOR FIGHTING OPPONENTS NOT ON HIS LEVEL OR PAST THEIR PRIME.FIGHT PACQUIAO COWARD!Posted September 19, 2013
HOLD UP A SEC
you don’t sound like someone that knows fighting.Posted September 19, 2013
RUBBISH..!!! 45-0Posted September 19, 2013
i have no idea why floyd would fight amir khan……floyd jr. should be fighting esrilandy lara, danny garcia., sergio martinez, tim bradley , austin trout or devon alexander……khan is a clown and will most likely be beaten soundly by devon alexanderPosted September 19, 2013
@ THIS DUMB AZZ SO CALLED WRITER!!!! LOOK HERE, DEVON ALEXANDER HAS NEVER BEEN KO’ED 1ST, 2ND WHEN YOU SAY MONEY MAY SHOULD FIGHT PACQUIAO BECAUSE KHAN WAS KO’ED..
to the real and true boxing fan I am not a floyd fan but I recognize greatness when I see it 3 of the fighters you mention were full blown mwts the one thing I think he made a n error on was not facing pacman whom I think he would have beaten. You people think he should face everyone on the planet no matter their weight if he beat all the guys you mention you would come up with more.Posted September 19, 2013
Khan’s hand speed would trouble him for a round or so but eventually Floyd would get him late from an accurate counter right hand.
Mayweather by TKO 8.Posted September 19, 2013
Khan would beat this bumPosted September 19, 2013
Money wise it makes sense and @Nick yeah the page on Facebook, BOXING WIZARD its tight the articles are real and the fact that they give props to all boxer’s not just the big names is also awesome any real boxing fan would like that page it’s legit.Posted September 19, 2013
There’s a cool page on Facebook it’s call BOXING WIZARD its about Boxing news and views and upcoming boxers it’s legit if your a boxing fan you will like it, Check it out its dope.Posted September 19, 2013
This writer is cluess like The Teal and True Boxing Novice. Fevon Alexander was never koed.Posted September 19, 2013
Another Mayweather HATE article!! This Author probably LOST a LOT of MONEY on the Mayweather/Canelo fight!!Posted September 19, 2013
The Real and True Boxing Fan
I do not question nor ignore Mayweather’s defensive greatness. I do believe he is one of the best out there.
However, I question his list of opponents and when he took some of them on, such as Cotto.
I question his legacy.
I just believe that if Floyd doesn’t take any risks the validty of his legacy will always be questioned amd criticized.
Why he never fought Paul Williams, Martinez (at his prime), Pacquiao (although I think he would win that one). or waited for Oscar and Cotto to get old.
I would like to see Floyd take a high risk fight such as fighting Triple G, Chavez Jr Lara fighters that could give him trouble. Canelo was a hype job and I always criticized that fight.
If Floyd goes on to fight Garcia, Khan, Alexander and so on it will be a joke! What does that do for Floyd’s legacy?
Floyd needs to take risks, make a fight that will thrill the true boxing fans and the boxing world.
Floyd needs to CEMENT his legacy and prove to the world that he is as great as he says he is.
Again, being 4th to retire undefeated is nothing great, Although a 46 undefeated streak is impressive, fighters like Chavez Sr had an 86 fight streak! That is impressive.
if Floyd was the FIRST ever to retire undeafetd then it would be a truely amazing accomplishment!
Khan? Really?Posted September 19, 2013
Some of you still don’t understand Floyd’s methods. Why would he pick a fighter with 3 losses and who’s more popular in Europe than USÀ, over an undefeated young champion who’s generated buzz in the past year with an outspoken father to help sell the fight. It’ll be Garcia in May3……because he’s money-making Mayweather! 46-0 on cinco-de-mayweather!Posted September 19, 2013
khan the big yellow bird
They already had a fan poll out of the four 5% voted khan we all want pacman vs may khans a clown looking for a payday and i can think of ten fighters who deserve a fight with floyd khan dosent and floyd snr already said khan runs away too much let somebody else knock khan out again and let floyd fight a name in boxingPosted September 19, 2013
To the real and true boxing fan Of the fighters you name only the great Ricardo Lopez deserves imo to be mentioned in the same breath as Floyd while he is not my favourite fighter how can anybody ignore the greatness of.this man.Posted September 19, 2013
FMJ has four more fights so he may still face Pacquiao. Also, Khan wasnt ‘knocked out cold’ by Garcia, he was stopped on his feet. Pacquiao was knocked out cold by Marquez.Posted September 19, 2013
I WOULD PAY 1 CENTS TO SEE THIS FIGHT. SHOWTIME HAS A HEADACHE.Posted September 19, 2013
Come on Mayweather Sr, fight the MAN, THE PACMAN, that’s on your face!!! Why you and your son keep walking around and away from the ROAD STOPPER? Stop, and face the ROAD STOPPER MANNY PACQUIAO!Don’t be afraid to get your son Floyd’s a.s.s. whipped like Ricky Hatton when you were Hatton’s trainer. We all know that Amir Khan won’t last 5 rounds with Manny PACQUIAO, so why fight someone who’s 8 ladders BELOW Manny Pacquiao? Grow some bigger balls.Posted September 19, 2013
oh yea I am real surprised on this one…just so surprised….so so surprised…Posted September 19, 2013
A great chance to see the greatest fighter of all time fight in britain and against an overrated fighter like khan it would make me so happy to see the great skills of floyd while he’s at his bestPosted September 19, 2013
May should move up to middle weight; showing he has the most heart/talent/skills. Sugar Ray Robinson went up and down to fight. This young Cat doesn’t have the big ones and he never KO’s anyone. He waits all night and all the folks are tired watching him hit and run.Posted September 19, 2013
This information isn’t new! Prior to the Alvarez bout, Mayweather openly talked about fighting in the U.K. and Khan was the rumored opponent.
As far as who would be the better opponent for Mayweather, it longer matters. Just look at the commemts posted on boxing forms, facebook, or twitter and understand Mayweather’s next fight is going to be a hard sell regardless of the opponent.Posted September 19, 2013
If Mayweather fights Amir Khan, the boxing world will laugh at him for talking smack to Pacquiao about losing two fights in a row.Posted September 19, 2013
The Real and True Boxing Fan
Noooooooooo to Khan.
Floyd needs to take a risk and fight someone dangerous.
And please don’t say Canelo was a “risk” as I had said from day one the kid was a hype job.
I respect Floyd’s defensive mastery but his legacy will not be cemented until he takes risks. His biggest and only risk was fighting Oscar De la Hoya.
Floyd and his loyal fans believe that retiring undefeated will be his great legacy.
BUT REMEMBER if he retires undefeated he will only become the FOURTH professional fighter to do so.
3 others have already done it before him; Marciano, Calzagha and Ricard “Finito” Lopez.
It is not a big deal to be 4th. He needs to take risks!!Posted September 19, 2013
I would love to see this fight to see khan get his ass whipped once and for all also to see maybe the greatest fighter of all time in britainPosted September 19, 2013
Money will be spent but loyalty is everything.Posted September 19, 2013
The wizard is reaping all the glory of boxing because he stays at his lane no other bussiness other than boxing,he focused and stay loyal to the sports,he knows boxing is him not politics,preacher,entertainer,filthy politicians amd what not,he hates to lose just like you and me,if their is a way to win and if youre a winner youll gonna win.Posted September 19, 2013
Floyd never said he’s considering fighting Khan, although signs point to it. The writer is reading too much into it.
What if he fights Khan in May because he’s “Little Pacquiao” to prepare for Pacquiao in September?
Back in 2009 or 2010, Mayweather vs Pacquiao would’ve been close. But with Floyd Sr. in his corner and Mayweather seemingly more focused, it’s Mayweather by landslide.Posted September 19, 2013
FJM already proven his greatness,why take on Golovkin or Garcia,at his age its not a wise bussiness move,Wizard floyd the new mexicutioner and hide youre zero away from the wizard.Floyd Money Mayweather.Posted September 19, 2013
Styles make fights. Kahn’s style will trouble Floyd. I know Kahn has a glass jaw but Floyd is no puncher. Why do they want this fight.Posted September 19, 2013
This is the best article…Posted September 19, 2013
If Garcia has no chance why does Floyd Sr want khan in UK? Garcia has a much better chance than Khan. Floyd would beat both but Khan is Very Very Easy money for Floyd. Floyd should fight Manny Trouble is Floyd wouldn’t be able to do interviews and pre fight pressers for fights unless he has a crack team with extra changes of underwear and new clothes, Diapers and plenty of wipes cause Floyd would need them all through out the pressersPosted September 19, 2013
khan is not in his class and the mayweather’s don’t broadcast who there fight is -miguel you are another hater if you say floyd’s win over canelo was boring how about all the fighter’s canelo beat were sorry and floyd made canelo look like nothing as he does most opponent’s you all brag on these fighter’s about what they gonna and can do until floyd dominate’s them then you say he was boring don’t blame floyd because his skill’s are superior and other fighter’s are just that fighter’sPosted September 19, 2013
What would the floidiots fans will say if this fight really happens , I’m sure they’re not going to say that it’s cherry picking, this is not a fact but it could happen thoughPosted September 19, 2013
king of boxing
khan will trouble mayweather jnr for first 3 rounds than he is going to suirvive a knockout in 6th and eventually getting ko cold by 10th rd.Posted September 19, 2013
Khan vs Floyd = sick joke, sick jokePosted September 19, 2013
Boxing News Man

Khan??? are people kidding this is a very bad joke Khan has a snowballs chance in hell against Floyd maybe 6rds take the under. NO WAY Khan will get KOD with jabs. this has got to be someone idea of a sick joke khan will have to change his name to James brown khan cause his legs will be shaking every punch Floyd landsPosted September 19, 2013

If Khan had a chin then he would rule the division, but he doesn’t so he can’t.Posted September 19, 2013
khan will get knock out pacman would knock both them outPosted September 19, 2013
King khan os a joke no chin no nuts pac man is kingPosted September 19, 2013
What is this guy going on about 1. Khan doesn’t spar with pacquio anymore 2. can someone please tell me when Alexanda got ‘knocked out’. I hope the fight doesn’t happen i’d rather Mayweather/Brook but i dont think there’s any money in it!Posted September 19, 2013
This would be a fun bout to watch, for as long as it last. It would also be interesting to see a Mayweather bout outside of Vegas which I don’t think has happened since the Gatti bout.
I’m a Khan fan but he will live to regret this if the fight goes through.Posted September 19, 2013
