Mayweather should’t confuse Khan with Hatton. Hatton had a huge fan base in the UK as he connected with fans, he was a folk hero for many. Khan has no comparable fan base, its as if Mayweather and Golden Boy believe all British fighters come automatically with mammoth football stadium followings, this is definately not the case.

Announcing Khan will damage Floyd’s credibility, this fight is already a joke. Khan will have been out of the ring for 13 months come May. He’s never fought at 147lbs before and has no belts. He’s 2-2 in his last four fights and got dropped by ageing lightweight Julio Diaz last time out. So how the hell has Khan got this shot? Speed? Was Khan’s speed a problem for Prescott, Garcia or Diaz? No. The speed argument does not stack up. As we all know, timing beats speed. This match up is just crazy, a terrible, unworthy fight. And Khan will retire afterwards anyway, he’s just cashing out. It really stinks. I am not buying it.

ordinary boxing fans

the opponent is immaterial for as long as loyal fans support mayweather. This will earn no less than 2 m ppvs, with khan’s 500,000 supporters and mayweathers 1,500,000 loyal fans who will buy his ppv no matter what. Long live Mayweather! Without you, boxing is surely dead.

Khan is conning Showtime into thinking he has a fan base. Khan has zero fan base. He is not Hatton. Golden Boy will force Maidana to fight Broner on the undercard because this PPV will bomb badly if it’s just Money v Chinny and a bunch of second tier undercard fights. Why is Money even bothering with Khan in the first place. Khan is a washed up, overrated chump who is just looking to cash out. It stinks.

Hec Dog no apology necessary. Johnny was a good guy who taught me how to dry up to make weight. He was a contender in his own right until they overmatched him vs Oscar. Anyhow I didn’t take that as disrespect. My point was that most of the top trainers were good but not great boxers so Jeff Mayweather has the typical background as does Floyd Sr. It seems the Mayweathers are taking turns trying to dismiss this new effort from Pac to get the fight going. Pretty shameful.

THAT’S IT. THE SURNAME “MAYWEATHER” WILL BE REMEMBERED IN WORLD HISTORY AS THE “CONDITIONAL BEST”, “SELECTIVE P4P” , AND “PAC-LESS 50-0″.

By the way, who cares about Floyd fighting Pacman. Nobody likes to see it in the first place that’s why we chose this fight. Khan is the best fighter out there who deserves a fight with Floyd. Again, yours truly, Mayweather clan.

This would be the greatest fight of all time and will cement Floyd’s claim as the GOAT. Yours truly, Mayweather clan…… PS, Make sure to record this fight so you can watch it over and over again.

Broner vs maidana should be the main event.

Floyd vs khan, should be the undercard.

I wouldn’t watch it for free, zero intrest and im not alone on this one.

Amir getting a good payday, im happy for him in that regaurd.

Old floyd best step it up next time out, manny getting well past his expiration date, he’s ripened to Floyd’s like n.

If somehow pac has a liver failure or a triple bypass or gets his arm ripped off by a mountain lion, floyd will sign real quick like.

Until then dont hold your breath.

I’m willing bet more people will pay to see broner vs maidana rematch than money vs khan. This guy got ko at 135 and 140 and there at least 3 or 4 guys should fight Floyd and king khan is not one of them.

“Jeff Mayweather is a nobody that took a beating from the likes of Jesse James Leija, Joey Gamache and some guy named John Avila, so pay no attention to this man.” – Hecdog, most trainers were not elite fighters so that means nothing. And BTW Avila was 24-0 with a ton of KOs at one point, who didn’t lose until he stepped up to a prime Oscar de la Hoya. He was also a friend of mine.

Card needs help, Mayweather and Kahn can’t pull PPV numbers for a sparring session. Victor Ortiz vs Devon Alexander, Andre Berto vs Adrian Broner, Brandon Rios vs Alvarado 3 and Danny Garcia vs Keith Thurman would put that card over the top.

I here Arum is trying to stop pac Bradley because Bradley’s contract will be up this year. He wants him to extend his contract so that he won’t be free to land a fight with Floyd and other fighters. Anyone hear that?

@Hecdog – “Jeff Mayweather is a nobody that took a beating from the likes of Jesse James Leija, Joey Gamache and some guy named John Avila, so pay no attention to this man.”

Although I don’t disagree with your whole post, the quoted line above is horrendously stupid.
If who you’ve beaten in boxing has any kind of bearing on whether anyone should listen to your opinion, then why would anyone listen to a single word that you (or just about anyone on this site) has to say?

Posted January 25, 2014 1:47 pm

Don’t buy Khan vs Mayweather PPV! He’s laughing his way to the bank. Put some presssure on Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao. We have the strength to make him fight.

Manny Pacquiao continues to be the thorn in all the Mayweather’s side. They all continue to give useless comments about the legend. Jeff Mayweather is a nobody that took a beating from the likes of Jesse James Leija, Joey Gamache and some guy named John Avila, so pay no attention to this man. The Mayweather’s do what they do best, talk. They run their reckless mouths over and over because they all fear the most ferocious boxing machine in boxing’s history. They have a long history of making comments relating to Floyd’s health and safety when merely speaking the name, Manny Pacquiao. They hide behind words and the media only because they fear the one man that will end the questionable winning streak of the boxing’s biggest DUCKER of quality opponents. The Mayweather’s know Manny has the speed, power, athleticism and the emotional fire power to destroy and retire Floyd Mayweather for good. Forget the past. The world is all on the same page, and Floyd knows it. They no longer give Mayweather the benefit of the doubt on anything. They look at him as a man fearing Manny Pacquiao. Floyd has no more excuses. He is a tainted fighter that has lost respectability, and his past and present peers look down at him. He has fallen and can’t get up without Manny Pacquiao or Life Alert. Floyd has brought this upon himself. He has no choice but to fight Manny Pacquiao. Fans will never forgive him. His reputation will take a beating for centuries to come. Floyd needs to redeem himself before it’s too late. Manny Pacquiao is a man on a mission. He will begin his second reign of terror beginning with Timothy Bradley. Floyd will be hoping and praying that Manny loses, unfortunately for him, Manny will not be denied. Manny is the best.

BTW, Broner/Maidana should get top billing, not Khan/Mayweather. Tons of boxing fans will be tuning in to see if Broner can redeem himself. The arena will probably sell out as well–just to see that fight.

Posted January 25, 2014 12:52 pm

“it’s why Goldenboy had to scramble and add the Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysee fight ”

Yet, Mayweather gets all the credit for the 2.2 million PPVs the entire show generated. You are right Messyhoe, Garcia/Matthysse had a lot to do with the success of that fight night.

@MJames – “Trust me, Khan has zero fan base here”

But is it one of those scenarios where people still turn up just to see him lose?
Coz I think about Anthony Mundine here in Australia… people in general dislike him here, and yet he still sells better than any other Aussie fighter.

Posted January 25, 2014 11:35 am

Of course Golden Boy is going to stack up the undercard. While Floyd LOVES to boast about his record numbers vs. Canelo, let’s not forget that the undercard of Garcia vs. Mattheysse could have been a main event on it’s own. I’m a boxing junkie, but I’m sorry but Mayweather-Khan does not interest me whatsoever. Khan lost tough, close fight to Peterson and Garcia figured him out after two rounds and beat him up. And how can anyone ever forget how Breidis Prescott annihilated him? Khan has no chance. Zero. This is not a compelling matchup at all.

Jeff Mayweather is right. The only reason I bought the Mayweather/Alvarez ppv was for the Garcia/Matthysse fight. Floyd is out there claiming how great his ppv numbers are but how many people bought that card to see him?

This really would be the ultimate undeserved mismatch.Khan has NO credentials whats so ever for such big task at welterweight and talk of a huge fanbase are not true . Khan is on the slide and this is a desperate last financial roll of the dice….I for one will not be conned with this silly,pointless waste of time and money .

Posted January 25, 2014 8:46 am

Though I disagree with khan mayweather fight as Floyd who is p4p king with only a few fights left in should be fighting the best around, I just don’t know who is available to fight him that will give a more even match up? It may be an interesting fight but khan has one tool in speed which I’m very sure mayweather has prepared for, il watch out of interest but can’t say I’m excited

Posted January 25, 2014 8:34 am

Khan is retired. Hasn’t anyone realised that? He will only fight again for a Floyd lottery pay day, then he won’t fight again after that. What a joke. What a mismatch. What an insult to boxing.

Oh Yeah

Khan destroys Mayweather Jnr in a complete mismatch. Mayweather will typically be on the run all fight but will be too slow for Khan. Khan is faster and way to powerful for Mayweather Jnr. Khan connects and Floyd is finished. I’m telling you that Mayweather Jnr ‘0’ will go at the end of this 12 round one-sided beating.

Khan can still have a shot, but in a year or 2 after a couple of impressive wins. Not by pulling out of tough fights in the hope to get a Mayweather fight/pay day. Khan vs Maidana would make more sense or Maidana vs Floyd whilst Khan fights Boner

Floyds timing to fight Khan a tad bit off for us to watch but just how chicken Floyd likes it. PACS not quite the same although looked pretty good last out so Floyd still waiting for him to slip alot more. Maidana should get the shot as he is champ,has improved alot,is on a roll and would flatten Khan if the pair fought now. Why did Broner go up in weight so quick and fight Maidana? And why Broner want rematch so quick after one sided beating? Do you think Broners friend and idol Floyd has anything to do with it?

Mayweather will need much more than maidina and broner ( though a great fight), as p4p king you are expected to fight top fighters on form. Sadly this fight is 2 years to late, if khan would of fought Alexander and going by his porter fight khan could have one that then maybe khan would of had some respect for this fight. How ever this is a commercial fight and not a world title fight

Posted January 25, 2014 4:57 am 


Paparazzi Jones

This is not a bad idea as the window dressing for FMJ-Khan, but the featured bout is simply not compelling. It may do well across the pond, but I dout even with Broner-Maidana-II as the co-feature that it will generate the kind of revenue that Floyd’s used to. I think if the bout does numbers even like FMJ-Guerreo did, they’d be really fortunate.
