OMG, Khan get real, your not even on the same planet.Posted May 16, 2013 9:05 pm
This is a real joke. The only way, and I really mean this, the only way it would be worth seeing that type of fight take place would be if Khan went in to fight Mayweather wearing a headgear. But seriously, Khan would get beat and KO so many times the ref would step in to stop it by the 5th.Posted May 16, 2013 2:08 pm
Who’s gonna pay for this fight?Posted May 15, 2013 11:43 pm
Mayweather might fight Khan, because he is soo easy to beat.Posted May 15, 2013 4:01 pm
I’m about 198 now, but I can make 147.Posted May 15, 2013 3:43 pm
To Hell with KHAN, I want to fight MAYWEATHER!. STOP DUCKING ME MONEY!!Posted May 15, 2013 3:42 pm
Other than being British and have a large home crowd, Khan has obviously done nothing to deserve this fight. He’s not fit to be a sparring partner for Floyd. Even with the headgear, he’d get knocked out in a round or two.Posted May 15, 2013 3:18 pm
RidiculousPosted May 15, 2013 3:16 pm
IF KHAN REALLY wishes to face Floyd Mayweather and truly believes he has the blueprint to defeat him,, then why does he not offer a WINNER TAKE ALL to Floyd?
The public will then be amenable to such a contest where Khan has every possibility of getting beaten up for free. Yes, the general public will acquiesce to such an offer and I’m sure it will break all PPV records to see if Amir can defy the odds and win or more than likely take a sustained beating.
He will then truly be able to hold his head high and say he took his beating for free and was not just trying to get a payday off a true champion?
Failing that he can actually get in line and face-off against the likes of Dinamita, Desert Storm, King Pete or Lucas Matthysse or even the likes of our own Ajose Olusegun, or even at a push Frankie Gavin or Kell Brook to prove himself worthy at 147.Posted May 15, 2013 2:30 pm
Sure go ahead and strip his title at 154. Who cares.Posted May 15, 2013 1:54 pm
Kahn is a sparring partner. Buy safe fight for may weather one thing about Floyd is he knows how he can beat and who he can’t that’s one reason he is 44$0Posted May 15, 2013 1:39 pm
You can take this article face value or read between the lines. I think Khan might be thinking about a Brook fight which is why he has started to build up the bad blood. Saying that Brook would pull out with an injury is about as obvious as they come insult, saying the public wouldn’t care about the fight is undermining Brook, hes mentally trying to exorcise any demons he has about him by saying hes not worth it. Khan knows that this might be a fight he has to make or take at some point and he is already showing concern..Posted May 15, 2013 1:35 pm

Khan’s not even the #1 in Europe @ 147Lb! Bundi, Gavin & Vassel would all school him. If he was to fight PBF then it should be a 70/30% spit in favour of Floyd. Khan’s done nothing at welterweight, so doesn’t deserve this fight.Posted May 15, 2013 12:03 pm
@Hugh Jardon or dont you mean huge hardon
there is no way Khan is faster than Mayweather………..
Khan is nothing more than a hype job and wish he would just hang em up.Posted May 15, 2013 10:50 am
THIS LITTLE FRAUD KHAN did a similar thing back in the days dodging the dangerous Lightweights of the Diaz’s, Campbells, Marquez’s and the Valero’s to sneak in the back door and get a world title shot at a weight he’d never fought at vs KOTELNIK.
Thanks to his then promoter, money bags Frank Warren, Khan was able to queue jump and get an undeserved title shot….. This remember was a guy who had only recently recovered from a hammering from BREIDIS PRESCOTT and lucked out over a badly trained and overweight Barrera, who should have stayed retired.
Now, with his new owners he is attempting to do the same thing and get a shot at the world’s finest without avenging his two recent defeats and queue jumping once again to get a dhot at Floyd.
The whole world is watching…. It’s time this little punk earned his shot rather than sneaking in the back-doors which seems to be his M.O. these days.
I for one can’t see whythe likes of Garcia, Petereson, Matthysse and Judah had to battle it out for the right to meet Khan in a so-called Light Welterweight Tourney, whilst back-door Khan got the easy route of Kidd Diaz – who he was lucky not to get served and a pass straight to the final.
Back-door Khan wins again… but, only til either Matthysse, Peterson or Garcia get him into a ring, assuming he hasn’t side-stepped them all and found another back-door straight into a mega-money fight with Floyd Mayweather.
This is the joke we call boxing today…. Too many back-door Khan’s proliferate our once great sport!!!!!Posted May 15, 2013 8:45 am
BEARS (with a quak quak here and a quak quak there here a quak there a quak everywhere a quak quak)
Every red blooded boxng fan should be calling for mayweather to be stripped of any and all decorations andor titles at 154. Its official mayweather has pulled a bowe and is nothing at 154.Posted May 15, 2013 3:58 am
Amir needs to rewind 2 years ago and get back to where he was. After the Prescott defeat he sorted himself out and then that head started swelling up again. Why can’t the boy just fight instead of talking so much? Diaz nearly had him, and he was hand picked. He needs to fight Peterson or Garcia again as he hasn’t reversed and of his losses so far and that never looks good on a resume.Posted May 15, 2013 2:38 am
So now selling over a million PPV is lackluster. So Floyd has set the bar, if you don’t do at least 1.1 or 1.2 million buys it is considered lackluster. Gotcha. Congrats on that FloydPosted May 15, 2013 2:06 am
Amir China Chin Con will be next, than the PPV numbers will be fudge as in his last lackluster PPV eventPosted May 15, 2013 1:36 am
Khan can beat mayweather.Posted May 15, 2013 12:50 am
Khan can win.Posted May 14, 2013 10:32 pm
Khan is sounding like one of those people that wan’t something for nothing. Someone needs to tell the kid, “Son, you gotta earn it, or you’ll never appreciate it”… Ha ha, yeah right….Posted May 14, 2013 9:41 pm
Get real. Khan???? Ha ha ha. Doesnt even deserve a shot a the Ghost more less Mayweather. Fight would make millions, but pursuing it would be sooooo confrontational for Mayweather and the boxing community being that Khan not a game opponent.Posted May 14, 2013 9:27 pm
even his shadow put khan on the canvas.Posted May 14, 2013 9:22 pm
Did Diaz also put him in the canvass? See pic.Posted May 14, 2013 8:28 pm
Cant sell this fight to even casual fans, its a joke as Amir Khant take a punch from even a 35th ranked fighter in Diaz(boxrec). Really theres ZERO interest in this, totally pointless. I feel bad for Amir, he is like a golf player who cant putt or a tennis player with no backhand, a fighter with no chin can not compete at top level…..Posted May 14, 2013 7:57 pm
Khan doesn’t deserve the fight. He should fight Alexander as plan win. Maybe deserves the title shot with Mayweather, a unification that will mean something.Posted May 14, 2013 7:49 pm
I just wondered how the big money contracts work, nothing other than that, it’s alot of money, a gamble, you don’t invest unless there is a reasonable chance of a return, or you can afford to lose alot of money.Posted May 14, 2013 7:38 pm
£10 MILLION, typo, not £10.Posted May 14, 2013 7:13 pm
Reason I ask that, is Eubanks was guaranteed £10 for 8 fights in 1 year by Sky, obviously he didn’t win all the fights, just interested in how the contract works for either side.Posted May 14, 2013 7:05 pm
Reason I ask that is because, Eubanks was guaranteed £10 million for 8 fights in 1 year by Sky way back, obviously he did not win them all, so can’t of been paid the £10 million, interested how the contracts work for either side.Posted May 14, 2013 7:02 pm
Can u imagine the promotion for this fight, every khan highlight will show him getting wobbled, knocked down or out, its going to require some clever video editingPosted May 14, 2013 7:01 pm
Khan should be calling out JMM !Posted May 14, 2013 6:43 pm
“Khan wants Mayweather”? get in line and don’t bother lining-up until you’ve redeemed your two unavenged, unredeemed KO losses. otherwise, why does Mayweather owe Khan the biggest payday of his career?Posted May 14, 2013 6:40 pm
…………………………Floyd The Great KO’s Khan in 9…………………………
an easy fight and KO for FM.Posted May 14, 2013 6:29 pm
It could be less than $100 million if he loses, gutted.Posted May 14, 2013 6:23 pm
Only reason this fight happens if it happens in England. But this fight really won’t happen for another year so at the moment it is all talk. If it did happen though Floyd would probably make more there than he would in the statesPosted May 14, 2013 6:10 pm
What if Mayweather loses, does that effect the $200 million Showtime contract, I don’t know, is he guaranteed the same money.Posted May 14, 2013 6:09 pm

Well if Mayweather do fight Kahn, at least Kahn is coming off a win. All Pacman do is fight fighters that has previously lost (RIOS) (Margo) (Shane Mosley), and COTTO. ALL came after a lost. Pac loves to fight over the hill sweat drained fighters. Why didn’t PAC fight Alvarado, the WINNER against Rios. Pac is a FRAUD!Posted May 14, 2013 5:57 pm

Khan has done NOTHING to deserve a fight with Mayweather but that’s exactly why he will get the fight! He exemplifies the type of opponents Mayweather feeds on.Posted May 14, 2013 5:36 pm
His theory, “Well, since I’m gonna lose to whichever I end up fighting, I’d rather get a fat check and KO’d than a small check and get KO’d”. It’s no secret!Posted May 14, 2013 5:21 pm
Kell Brook would knock Khan out inside the distance.Posted May 14, 2013 5:03 pm
If the fight takes place it will be another farce just like Floyds last fight with guerrero. Nobody in their right mind is going to believe Floyd is going to lose so why buy the fight. Why watch something whose result will be obvious. Now, if it was Mayweather against an opponent that was on a level close to or on Floyd’s, the I would buy otherwise, fighting these has-beens does nothing for his career except make him richer by shafting boxing fans.Posted May 14, 2013 4:49 pm
Khan doesn’t want any part of Kell nor should he,he would get smashed inside 7 against him.Making the babyish remarks about kell’s injury is typical of khan,a complete knob head, i hope the braggart glass chined fraud gets KOd by his next hand picked apponant it’s about time he got kicked off the gravy train,and some one more deserving get the chance to make the big bucksPosted May 14, 2013 4:47 pm
It will be another piece of crap fight like guerrero. But in Khans defense, he’s better known especially for his KO losses. Whatever, if the fight takes place, do you really, really and I mean really think Floyd would lose?? And if he’s not, why pay for the fight? I would watch it on regular cable but no PPV. Not worth it.Posted May 14, 2013 4:45 pm
Jason, the Mayweather/Ortiz fight was a fiasco. From intentional headbutts to incompetent refereeing, to sucker-punch KOs. The fight should have been called a no-contest and an immediate rematch reordered. But, as Michael Jordan was to basketball, so Floyd Mayweather Jr. is to boxing-in the eyes of many–especially those whose pockets are lined by his fights-Floyd can do no wrong. But I’m with you-Floyd did in fact sucker-punch Victor Ortiz. Did he “deserve” it? WTF kind of reasoning is that? Oh, I know, new rule! From now on when a boxer commits an intentional foul against his opponent, he must drop his hands to his side and let the other guy smack him at will. Yeah, that’s the ticket.Posted May 14, 2013 4:41 pm
Interesting. Bradley struggles to beat Provodnikov and he is lauded for his courage and toughness. Khan struggles to beat Diaz and he is lambasted for his chin and for being over-rated. Bass-ackwards thinking.Posted May 14, 2013 4:39 pm

Well, at least Khan makes no bones about it. He wants to fight Mayweather. As for, “Diaz is a fighter that Khan should have easily beaten,” let’s not be so hasty to judge. Experienced ring dogs like Julio Diaz can be surprisingly dangerous any old time. After all, look what Morales did to Cano. Then Garcia whipped Morales’ butt. And btw folks, why is it that some of you, including a number of these journalists, laud Bradley for his “tough” showing against Provodnikov, but give no credit to Khan for his “tough” showing against Diaz? Provodnikov wasn’t expected to do that to Bradley, nor was Diaz expected to do as well as he did against Khan. They were both good, surprising fights. Live with it.Posted May 14, 2013 4:36 pm

I HIGHLY doubt that Khan’s “speed” will do much against Mayweather. Khan’s speed didnt deter Danny Garcia from knocking him out and hes not all that fast.Posted May 14, 2013 4:25 pm
Gonna have to be in england, won’t cause too much interest in U.SPosted May 14, 2013 4:16 pm
This fight is starting to grow on me. I’m actually getting excited for this. But Khan will lose. Unless he goes back with Roach.
Roach knows how to beat Mayweather as evident in the DLH fight.Posted May 14, 2013 4:15 pm
If what Khan says about the Kell Brook fight is true, then by the same reasoning there is no reason what-so-ever for Floyd Jr. to fight Khan.Posted May 14, 2013 3:50 pm
Ray – he will, wait and see…Posted May 14, 2013 3:29 pm
peej – you really have got your head firmly up mayweathers arse haven’t you lol!!! if you call that knockout against ortiz not a sucker punch then what on earth do you define one as??? for me it is when you clock someone when they arent looking, that is why it is called a sucker punch… why it happens is neither here or there…Posted May 14, 2013 3:28 pm
Khan would do a lot better than you numb skulls are making out, he’s quicker than mayweather for a start, I still think he would lose though, but give him a break ladiesPosted May 14, 2013 3:28 pm
This is embarrassing. How in the heck does he even try and get a fight with Mayweather when all hes been doing lately is losing? Its gonna be a sad day if Mayweather agrees to fight Khan.Posted May 14, 2013 3:26 pm
Well it’s a good thing Floyd hasn’t sucker punched anybody before. He had only issued paybacks. And as the saying go what goes around comes around. And it came back around quick against OrtizPosted May 14, 2013 3:15 pm
My only interest in watching Floyd fight Khan is to see if Floyd can knock him out without sucker punching him. The winner is a foregone conclusion.Posted May 14, 2013 3:11 pm
Marcelo – Manchester – UK
I think Khan just needs to stop talking… being ko’d and losing two fights to then having TWO easy fights against blown up lightweights just to give him a few wins has clearly gone to his head…..
the one thing I don’t understand is how the hell has he found himself from losing twice to beating (struggling I should say) two easier fights to then calling shots and being inline from that to face the winner of mathysse/Peterson vs Danny Garcia……
can comeone please explain to me the logic in how he warrants the winner????
If I was Khan I would take the brook fight while goldenboy have him on the roster until his fight deals run out cos when they do expect no more cheerleading from Oscar and Schaefer as they will try to cash in while they can before he gets brutally ko’d….. Brook is a far more realistic fight than getting one with Mayweather….. mayweather and khan should never be mentioned on any boxing site together…. im not even a mayweather fan but I appreciate his skills and its the biggest mismatch….
Khan would most likely lose to a genuine threat of a lightweight in Broner who is a big name now and we never saw him calling him out….
Khan has either taken too many hits to the head and believes his own hype but the one thing he needs to do is take his head out of his a**e if he thinks hes in mayweathers class as a fighter…. mathysse, brook, Garcia, Peterson all destroy him so forget mayweather!!!!!!!Posted May 14, 2013 3:02 pm
Khan is a joke! Please stop giving this guy anymore press. The next time he get in with any top contender or champion, it’s all going to end up the way it’s always ended for thi fraud. The chin is made of glass, and will never hold upPosted May 14, 2013 3:02 pm
of course he wants may! He wants to get paid!Posted May 14, 2013 2:59 pm
simple reason why Khan wants none of Brook, he cannot afford another embarrassing loss, and he would lose to brookPosted May 14, 2013 2:57 pm
Brooks looks very solid..he could be very special.So ofcourse Khan dont want him,hes very high risk and low reward not many outside the U.K. know about him yet.Mayweather is high risk high reward,and who would expect Khan to win anyway.Khan could cash out with Mayweather but not with Brook.And a lost to Mayweather Khans stock dosent really drop much nobody excpects a win so he can still fight another big name if he wants.But a lost to Brook his stock drops he fades out of the picture alot more overall.Posted May 14, 2013 2:53 pm
there we go, the perfect mayweather opponent… hahahaPosted May 14, 2013 2:45 pm
