AMIR KHAN is never going to be a P4P fighter of any merit.

His mouth tries to write cheques his fists will never cash… The only thing Khan is headed for is an early date with pugilistic dementia.

Even in his last bout vs the blown up Lightweight, Molina or whatever his name is, he took several shots flush on the button.

I don’t doubt his vulnerabilities make him a ‘fan-friendly’ (ridiculous
term) fighter, but when it comes to boxing smarts, ring generalship,
tactical awareness and real fundamental skills, save for his handspeed and running shoes when hurt, Amir is barely past the novice stage at what it takes to become a great fighter.

Frank Warren and then Golden Boy tried to get him in the backdoor with rankings that belied his status and now he’s trying once again to queue jump and get a shot at Money without really deserving it.

If Khan can defeat a Matthysse, Peterson and Garcia and then beat a top 3 rated Welterweight, then and only then can he think about even stepping near a ring apron for a Mayweather contest – but I see the WBC in their infinite greed, have him ranked as #2 at Welterweight – a division he’s never even fought in!!!!

That’s disrespectful to those men who have put their bodies on the line at 147 to see this braggart get his before they get theirs….

I have severe doubts he has the ring smarts to defeat a Kel Brook or a
Devon Alexander at this stage of his rebuilding process.

To be honest he needs to get in line for a shot at the 140 pound title and match up with someone like Olusegun rather than blown up Lightweight Kidd, Julio Diaz!

Khan is not even near the best fighter in the UK at 147, let alone the world.

FOR this reason alone I hope and pray Amir Khan is stretched out in his next meaningful bout. He does not, I repeat does not deserve to be stepping in the same ring as anyone the calibre of a Floyd Mayweather.

Let Amir take on and defeat a top #5 Welterweight contender and earn a contest with Floyd. TBH let Amir step in the ring with Adrien Broner at 140/147 and if he can beat the Problem, then let him take on the Rubik’s cube in Mr. Mayweather….

Hopefully, Khan will be toast before this matchup ever happens!

Greeting to Tomato Can, good to see your boxing knowledge as always, I agree. put Khan in with anyone in the top 5 147 and he will lose again,This move does not surprise me at all,WBC is the same org that GAVE Oscar the title right after he lost to Tito , they just handed it to him and said please be our champ, I don’t think that has ever happened in all of boxing, instead of letting Mosley and Oscar fight to be come champ they just made him the champ, so this making Khan #2 is no surprise, I will not be in shock if Floyd takes this fight, easy money for money mayweather-peace

Posted April 7, 2013 12:55 pm 


Hidalgo

The WBC gets a hefty fee for sanctioning championship mega-fights. Right now it appears that the goal is to pad Khan’s record so he remains undefeated until his opportunity to fight Mayweather arises. Which it probably will because the fight, as usual, will be about money–not about what’s right or wrong, or championships or pitting the best against the best. And, Mayweather will make the fight because he will make big bucks off of it. That’s what Floyd cares about. I’m not criticizing him for it, but that is the reality. That’s also why Khan wants the fight. Khan can’t get past Peterson, Prescott, or Garcia. So to delude himself into believing he can beat FMJ within the next couple of years is just that–a delusion. What I’d really like to see is another Mayweather/Marquez fight. I mean, if that little hulk came into the ring against Floyd right now, he just might do a little better. Maybe a lot better. One thing for certain, he wouldn’t put on such an embarrassing performance again.

Posted April 7, 2013 12:48 pm 


Tomato Can

Those stating that Canelo has the best chance to dethrown Mayweather, are most likely correct. The kid is 22, explosive, with pretty good over all skills, at 154. When Mayweather was 22, he was also explosive, with top notch skills, and blazing speed. The difference is he was a 130 pound fighter. Mayweahter can’t even weigh in at a solid 154 pounds. So then how would Mayweather have to fight Canelo? Stay on his bike and avoid exchanges as much as possible? That sound like a pretty boring fight to me, bur I would give the naturally bigger, younger Canelo a good shot at beating Mayweather.

Posted April 7, 2013 12:30 pm 


Tomato Can

Throw Khan in there with anyone at welter weight with average speed, power and good durability, and khan will get stopped again. That being said, Khan cant get past his peers, so of corse he doesn’t deserve a shot at Mayweather. I doubt this fight will happen, but then again, if Mayweather is really going to fight 6 times over the next three years, he’s going to have to fight khan type fighters in that mix..

Khan certainly dosent deserve a shot I think it discusting that hes got away with just fighting diaz coz GB know Garcia, Matthyse and peaterson would destroy him,(although its allways good to see him lose)hope to see the end off Khans carrer in sheffield by Kell Brook one day,But why all the calls for Martinez he’s a middle weight after all who has struggled against maklin,barker,Chavez jr,mayweather would probley box his ears off but why risk it giving away 20-25 lbs on the night.

It’s simple really, GBP want to put Khan in with Mayweather before Khan is knocked cold again and the fight becomes unsellable (like it isn’t already).

Khan and his handlers want to line their pockets and they know the British and Muslim niches will fall for a PPV mismatch against Mayweather, expect Khan to be matched extremely softly until this cash-out takes place.

It’s a fight that will generate money plain and simple. The rankings are trash. If Floyd intends to fight 6 times in the next 3 years, I would enjoy seeing him fight Khan. Khan has the quick hands to be entertaining for the 4 rounds it would take Floyd to KO him.

Mayweather faced some tough fighters in his early years I doubt he is trying to pick any difficult fights this late in the game, he gets paid by showtime regardless why not pick comfortable opponents, make your money and retire on top. In any profession nobody works as hard so close to retirement as they did when they were trying to get to the top and boxers are no different, the only boxers who take risky fights late in the game are ones who really need the money and B-Hop and let’s face it they guys is just a super human freak of nature. I’m a Mayweather fan and a boxing fan, I would like to see him fight Alvarez, Martinez or Manny but I’m not holding my breath. Also I think his past two fights and even this one with Guerrero are good opponents, Guerrero is a big Welter who knows how to use his body, if he can rough Floyd up he can make it somewhat of a fight.

BS match-ups and the big fighters cherry-picking is what is fundamentally wrong with the sport of boxing today. We don’t see the old school fighters that fought the best anymore. Nowadays it’s a version of the WWE and a big PR show. Why on earth would the p4p king fight a weak LWW with no chin coming off two losses?
The WSB is actually shaping up fine. The best amateurs in the world are fighting the best every 4 weeks, pro size gloves, no head gear, 5 rounds.

Obviously, this fight is a mismatch and all about making money for both the fighters and the WBC. However, it would probably be interesting for 6 rounds or so before Khan is eventually completely overcome.
I would very much like to see Khan earn the fight first though. Avenging both of his defeats to Prescott and Garcia would, in my opinion, earn him that fight. You can forget the Peterson fight, as that was nothing but a complete sham and evidence of the corruption that is still embedded in the sport/business. From the peculiar betting, to the “man in the hat”, to the fact the referee was a local and quite frankly awful during the bout, to Peterson failing his drug tests, the whole fight was pathetic on so many levels.

Does Mayweather himself believe there’s a market for a Khan fight. No one will enter the area thinking Khan has a realistic shot at upsetting Mayweather. There’s no aspect of Khan’s game that exceeds that of Mayweather — now or even 2 years from now. I won’t be a PPV buyer for such a fight.

Over 95% of all of Mayweathers last 15 fights, were against men who were champions who outweighed him by over !0-15 pounds on fight night. When you see Floyd in the ring against most of these guys, one can`t believe they are in the same division. The only guy in the last 10 years that Floyd was bigger than was Marquez, and that wasn`t by much. it shows what a great fighter this guy is that all these champions suddenly become “cherry picked bums” when fighting Floyd. Hatton, ortiz, Mosely(directly after he,moseley, destroyed MARGOCHEATA,) judah, corrales, gatti,henandez( who he took the super feather weight title from) manfredy, Delahoja (not the hydrated version), That Argentinian who came in at super middle to floyd`s 150),Marquez(yes the same one who smoked PACROID) and Cotto to name a few WERE ALL CHERRY PICKED BUMS. All of these guys inspite of all of the haters lies, were bigger than floyd, and on fight night the were at least 2 divisions above Floyd with the exception of Marquez,

Bill Phanco writes, “I won’t be surprised if Khan is moved to the #1 position if he gets beaten by Julio Diaz this month on April 27th in Sheffield.”

That’s NOT going to happen in a million years. I would bet you 100,000 dollars they don’t rank Khan number one if he gets beaten by Diaz. Lose to Diaz and you deserve to drop out of the rankings entirely. Losing a close one to Peterson or losing to Garcia doesn’t warrant a big drop in your ranking; particularly if you were the top fighter in the division at one time.

However, if Khan beats Diaz and is ranked number one I wouldn’t be totally amazed—but it’s still a BS ranking. Amir should have to beat a real good fighter before he’s ranked that high—or is matched with Mayweather. However these ranking are compiled by political clowns who are paid off.

This is a safe fight for Khan… Virgil Hunter is no dummy.

Why in the world would anybody want to see Floyd fight Amir? My fourth grade teacher (about seventy-eight years old now) is also looking to fight. Why not schedule her rather than Amir? That way Floyd might not have a guaranteed win.

Floyd won’t fight anyone he doesn’t want to and so the only thing I can assume is that Floyd wants to fight Khan and has told the WBC to make him a viable opponent. If the fight takes place it could be entertaining and I don’t think Khan is any more undeserving than Provodnikov was when he got his chance against Bradley.

More like the WBC is setting him up for a beating. SMDH!!!

Right, cause Mayweather takes orders from a sanctioning body! If Khan can keep from getting knocked out and pick up a few wins against top ten welters then anything’s possible but for now this is empty bluster from the WBC, which as everyone knows is a criminal racket, a mafia without real muscle.

My opinion

Rankings is bs and something I simply ignore. I feel khan mayweather is a very interesting fight. No doubt mayweather is the favourite but I would love to see floyd deal with khans lightning quick jabs. Khans losses have been via huge knockouts something floyd does not do. It should also be noted khan was comfortably winning the Garcia fight til he got clocked. My point being he has never been outclassed through 12 rounds. I find this fight a bit more intriguing than the Alvarez fight which I feel mayweather will win easily. Khan has fought a much higher class of opponents than Alvarez who has not fought anyone notable yet.

Hmmmm…

Fishy! How does a guy that keeps on losing and knocked out get to number 2 in the rankings? What a farce!

If Khan does fight Mayweather, I believe Mayweather would win.

It would be a bit typical of Mayweather to fight Khan instead of someone more formidable. I think Alvarez could be the man to finally beat him.

The Low Blow !

wont Junior want to have Khan avenge his losses first before they step in to the ring; the same thing with Manny he also has to avenge his losses also ?

Just goes to show that the rankings are pointless.

horst fraze

khan wasn’t interested in a rematch with prescott, how can anyone match him with mayweather. totally ludicrous,if anyone takes this fight seriously, they might as well donate their $’s to united way. at least it makes a lot more sense.

Can’t be done. First off he is 140lbr and he can’t put up enough wins. Once he starts thinking of Floyd he gets TKOd

I call BS. More likely JMM v Khan. Everyone knows it’s the World Boxing Chicano association. They don’t give an F about Mayweather.
