Khan needs to let go of his dream of facing Mayweather

Amir Khan Floyd Mayweather JrBy William Mackay: I hate to see people waste their time with silly pipe dreams that will never actually happen. For example, WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) has this big dream of facing Floyd Mayweather Jr sometime. Khan believes it so much that he’s even put time line on it, speaking about it happening as early as 12 rounds from now. Never mind the fact that Mayweather may be sent up the river due to the mounting legal headaches that he’s experiencing, Khan seems oblivious to all of this and talks as if getting a fight with Mayweather is as simple as going to the local super market and picking up a dozen eggs and quart of milk.

Really, Khan needs to let that dream go, and sit down with a good cup of coffee and watch video of his recent fight against Marcos Maidana one more time, but on a big screen television so that Khan can see every detail of the fight. At the same time, he needs to neutral boxing fans there to give Khan a reality check afterwards to point out to him that he barely survived the fight and really prove anything other than he has a weak chin, and not enough power to take out the better fighters in the division.

Khan needs these people to tell him the truth about himself, because he seems to be under the mistaken impression that he’s going to unify the titles after this fight and then move on to face Mayweather next year. We’re talking delusions of grandeur here of epic proportions. Khan needs these non-partial fans to clue him to what really occured in the Maidana fight and give him the straight talk of what his chances will be to beat Timothy Bradley or Devon Alexander. The chances aren’t good, just as they won’t be good if Khan ever faces Maidana in a rematch with a referee that doesn’t step in to break up the action when Khan is getting walloped late in the fight.
