Nevada State Athletic Commission banned testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) from combat sports on Thursday. The ruling, which passed by a unanimous vote, eliminates future applications for a therapeutic use exemption for TRT. — This means roids ragers like Lamont PEDerson who “beat” Khan juiced to the gills on synthetic testosterone can no longer roids rage in Nevada without a ban.

There where several polls out there. Khan won one poll. But Khan doesn’t deserve the fight. You don’t get fights by no fighting. You have to earn it. Where you complaining the same way when he did the same thing to Alexander?

For me Floyd is the one who disrespect Khan who I believe won the voting poll. He selected Maidana because he knows the guy is lot slower than Khan. Khan is more harder fight for Floyd but Maidana is easier one. The only problem of Khan is keep on crying which he should not do. he need understand that Floyd is a smart cherrypicker.

Mayweather, Bradley, Ward, Rigo, Hopkins, Wlad, Danny and Mikey Garcia, Froch. I am sure there are some in the lower weights but I have not gotten a chance to watch them. Sorry but if you are getting beat by elite fighters then you are not elite. You are a step below them. I never said he wasn’t an A level fighter or he was never elite. He just isn’t anymore. If he beats Bradley then we can put him back in. That is a big if too. If Bradley wins you might as well say good buy to PPV too.

Okay PEEJ, so who, according to you, counts as an “elite athlete” in world boxing right now?

Since Pacquiao is on just about everyone’s top ten P4P list, and you don’t include him, how many does it include? Just Mayweather? Or does Ward also count?

Do you not realise how absurd it is for you to claim that, out of (say) 40,000 active boxers in the world, only ONE (or two, or three) of them qualify as “elite athletes”?

I am not saying that Pacquiao is the P4P no. 1, but to say that he’s not an “elite athlete” because he lost on an extremely dodgy decision to the Ring P4P no 3 and suffered a KO to the Ring magazine P4P no 6 hardly disqualifies him from “elite athlete” status! As noted before, on that basis nobody in tennis but the no 1 and 2 seed would count as an “elite athlete”, and so on for just about every other sport.

It’s not a question of “the plain truth”, but rather of how the word “elite” is standardly used in the English language. A good definition of the word “elite” in this context would be “the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons”.Your attempt to stipulate that the said class excludes everyone except one or two individuals per sport (which you would have to do, on pain of inconsistency) is just plain silly.

Manny Pacquiao is, according to the consensus of experts, one of the top ten P4P boxers in the world. That makes him an “elite athlete”, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT LIKE HIM.

Okay, now I’m done with this. Go ahead: repeat yourself.

Khan doesn’t want tough fights, he wants an easy ride to Floyd. Khan will never face Brook, Thurman, Porter or any top guys in their prime. Expect Khan to fight Malignaggi next, after which he’ll hang around doing nothing, except trying to talk his way into that retirement pay day with Floyd.

Right now Pacquiao is an elite boxer. If he was outboxed by Bradley he wouldn’t be, but the opposite thing happened the last time they fought.

I believe Pacquiao-Bradley II will be one of the hardest fought fights of all time—or rather one of the hardest boxed fights. Both guys are determined be extremely active and outbox the other by a clear margin.

Unless he hurts Bradley badly I don’t think Pacman is going for the kill.. He learned a bitter lesson.. He was ahead on points and went a little crazy.

Oscar De La Hoya left Bob Arum, my son left Bob Arum. These were the biggest fighters in the world at the time they left Bob Arum, and they are some of the biggest fighters still today,” Floyd Sr. said when asked about giving advice to Pacquiao.

“I think if Pacquiao had any sense, I think he would jump on the same wagon and get rolling,” he added.

Pacquiao is the top fighter of Arum’s Top Rank Promotions, and this has long been a contentious issue that has blocked a potential mega-fight with Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Sr. said it would serve Pacquiao well to sever all ties with Arum and instead accept a fight with his son, on the condition that it will be Floyd Jr. who will be setting all the terms of the fight.

“Floyd is calling the shots, it’s simple,” the trainer said. “That way right there, everything will be taken care of.”

“With Little Floyd being the king of everything, Pacquiao is gonna take that test, and then Pacquiao is gonna have to settle for what Floyd wants him to have, simple,” he added.

Martin at this time Pac is fighting to be put back on that elite status so no he is not currently elite. Losing twice in a row and once by brutal KO pretty much removes your elite status. And no Khan is not one of the best in the world. That is ridiculous. Nobody thinks Khan is an elite fighter or one of the best fighters in the world. As a matter of fact most boxing experts will tell you that Khan looks to be slipping at his young age already.

Khan will look for the easiest, softest route to a Floyd fight, which will probably include another long spell of inactivity while Khan resumes trying to talk his way into a May 2015 slot. Khan will fight a soft target within the next 15 weeks and then do nothing for a year. Bum ass Khan doesn’t try to earn anything, what a joke when he says “I’ll fight anyone, I never duck anyone”.

@PEEJ

The point is that your criteria for “elite athlete” status is absurdly narrow. By anyone’s reckoning, Amir Khan is one of the very best boxers in the world. Even if you only place him in the top 20 in his division, that’s the top 20 IN THE WORLD. which means he is one of the very best, and thus by definition, a member of the elite in his chosen profession.

You write:

“He shouldn’t be in the top 10. Once you don’t fight for a year you pretty much get dropped from the rankings. Considering he hasn’t fought a top 10 fighter in over a year he shouldn’t be in the top 10.”

Okay, so according to the criteria you’re using, Pacquiao is also not an elite athlete, since he has only had one fight since 2012 and lost the two previous to that, right?

So there you go: according to you, Manny Pacquiao is not an elite athlete. Perhaps you’d be happy to along with that. Fair enough, but your comments say nothing at all about Manny Pacquiao or Amir Khan. All they show, at best, is that you’re not familiar with the way in which the word “elite” is standardly used in the English language.

I’ll gladly let you have the last word.

Ive stated on here multiple times I work for the phone company. He shouldn’t be in the top 10. Once you don’t fight for a year you pretty much get dropped from the rankings. Considering he hasn’t fought a top 10 fighter in over a year he shouldn’t be in the top 10. And considering how he looked against Molina who isn’t top 10 and Diaz who isn’t top 10 then how can you rank him in the top 10? At one point he was but he no longer is. Not to mention each fight he looks worse. And he has actually lost 3 times. Prescott by KO, Peterson by decision and Garcia by TKO. I don’t understand what you mean by where do yo rank it in global terms. And tennis players are a bit different. They play many times a year and they play in many tournaments. Rarely will you see a tennis player sit out for a year unless he was injured not to mention in tennis if you do sit out for a year you probably aren’t ranked.

“Khan is no elite level athlete.”

You know, that’s really quite a moronic statement. Khan has lost twice. ALL tennis players lose games. Does it follow from that that no tennis players can be “elite level athletes”? (And ditto for just about every other sport.)

Anyhow PEEJ, since you’re so adamant that boxers, even those who are in the top ten in the world in their division, are not “elite”, and so pour scorn on them, please tell us: what is your profession, and where would you rank yourself in it in global terms? Please don’t dodge the question.

@obicoke

I agree that Khan should be looking to fight Brook, if anyone in the welterweight division, but it seems he’s decided to pursue his career only in the States now. I also suspect his trainer is a deeply superstition man who is afraid of travelling. Plus, Khan might fear that the fans would mainly side with Brook, and that people would be paying to watch just to see him get sparked out. And he might be right about that: probably because he’s perceived as a an overhyped celebrity boxer with no chin, he’s not well loved by boxing fans in the UK. (And sadly, yes, some of these people are also thick, racist scumbags who just “hate pa kis”, as we’ve seen on this thread).

@curtley

Exactly. But then your average boxing fan — or at least, the average person who posts on ESB — really *is* clueless. They even call Froch a “bum” because there is one fighter in the world in his division who is better than him. The fact that said fighter is no. 2 P4P seems to mean nothing to them. It was the same with e.g. Ricky Hatton: as soon as he lost to Mayweather he was a “bum”, and then when he lost to Pacquiao he was a “joke”. Khan, meanwhile, is “a C-class fighter at best”.

It seems that, for many fans, if you’re not one of the best two or three P4P fighters in the world, you’re a “bum”. The real “bums”, of course, are these moronic “fans”. They ought to ask themselves where they are in their own professions. In the top billion in the world? Dream on! Most of them probably don’t even have a “profession”, or work, yet sit there calling the most accomplished athletes in the world “bums” just because they have lost a couple of times. As you say, they should try getting in a ring, even with a 16-year old amateur, and they may start to gain some appreciation of just what a difficult sport it is.

I might add that it’s not just the “fans” who post on here either: not too long ago they had “writers” who published articles suggesting that e.g. Froch versus Kessler 2 was pointless because Ward had beaten them both. For that reason, said one writer (M ichael C ollins was the worst culprit) kept suggesting that Froch and Kessler were worthless and should just retire!

With “sports journalists” like M ichael C ollins, there’s little hope for the average fan!

Thankfully, ESB articles have not been quite *that* bad in more recent months.

It may bring interest from overseas networks wanting to see what the up and coming Brooks is all about and against a high flying name like Khan. I think this has to be a no brainer for Khan.

I believe Khan’s shot himself in the foot here. He talks about fighting Shawn Porter, but Kell Brook is the IBF’s #1 mandatory @ 147Lb, so surely that one’s out of the equation, as is Bradley who’s scheduled to fight Pacman. Maybe a return to light-welterweight could be his best option. having said that it would have to be Garcia & his only chance of victory would be to have the contest staged in England. At this stage I would expect British/Commonwealth welterweight champion Frankie Gavin to take him out.

The Greatest Promoter of All Times

List of Opponents Amir Khan should seriously consider:

Jesse Vargas… dangerous fight for Khan. Once on The Money Team they discussed THE REMEDY for him to beat Khan even before he took on JOSESITO LOPEZ and won ( a fight Khan would think very hard about before deciding to pass)

Josesito Lopez.. another dangerous fight for Khan. Josesito has no quit and is tall and long limbed and can fight in close – exactly the sort of fighter Khan doesn’t do well against.

Manny Pacquiao… just who did get the better of those heated sparring sessions? There are several rumours that khan did indeed have the speed to bamboozle Manny, and is a fight that swings more in the favour of Khan with Pac’s reluctance to trade blows.

Timothy Bradley… Khan had twitter wars with Tim when both were at 140, but the fight didn’t happen as Tim put on 7 pounds and looked for more significant challenges. If Tim beats Manny in April, this feud could be rekindled and should tell us a lot more about both me! although Tim seems to have matured into a smooth boxer as well as an inside dynamo.

Danny Garcia… If Khan stays at 140 he needs to avenge his hammering by Swift…. I see him lasting longer, but ending up with a lopsidedly defeat or late rounds capitulation.

Lucas Matthysse… If Khan wants to prove he can hold a shot he can challenge the Argeninian assassin at a catchweight, say 145 and attempt to outbox him. if he stands and trades, expect to see a highlight KO reel for The Machine.

Special K – Kell Brook….. Battle of Britain. Kell is on the rise and needs a marquee name on his ledger. This won’t be easy for either man and could come down to temperament on the night to establish the winner and both men have shown flaws here. A win for either would be huge for their top-table bargaining.

Keith Thurman… I doubt Khan will take One Time as despite his exposure he is an unknown commodity. I expect Khan would box off the back foot here and run at times to get he nod, in the fashion he defeated Kotelnik.

Adrien Broner at a catchweight would be interesting as he is coming off of a loss and keen to egg back in the saddle. Funnily enough this is an ideal match for both men to come back and look spectacular. I can see scenarios for both men to win, but something tells me Khan could win this one in a shoot out. He has far too much volume for The Problem and could prove too mobile. I see Broner enticing him into a shootout at some point and Khan beating him to the punch.

Collazo is a solid southpaw, that Amir would elect to box and move against for 12 rounds, reminiscent of Sugar Shane Mosley, although Luis surprised us by winning a 2 round slugfest with Vicious Victor last time out.

Not sure which way Khan will go, but with a year out he may well choose a lesser warm up fighter in the manner of Molina before getting back in the saddle, hut any of the above options would prove to be exciting and perhaps explosive!!!!

Arum talks a lot of crap but he will never let Manny fight Floyd not when he can keep all the money.

Fight Aficionado

It’s kind of lame Khan has been put on the shelf these months waiting while the GBP guys advised him to not fight Alexander. Obv he thought that meant he had the Floyd fight, but GBP just wanted to maximize the available punching bags for Floyd.

Amir, you simply havent deserved that fight and Floyd and his team felt the same way as all other polls (not the one that was manipualted by mobilizing your groupies to vote you in) showed that Maidana has deserved that fight in the ring by winning against credible opponents! So please stop crying!

Fraud May why don’t you post your own comments and stop copying and pasting other folks comments you maggot farmer. Drop some knowledge contracts prevents fights and Manny is Arums Biiootch he would never let him fight Floyd so no sense in crying they had the chance in 09 and didn’t take it…

Done deal

Khan won the poll that required voters to have a twitter account in which a Khan has over 2 million followers to Maidanas 500k. When the poll wAs opened up to the public that didn’t have twitter Khan lost by significant margins.

Khan was poorly advised back in December…three other polls voted Maidana over Khan…any true fan of the sport knows that Maidana deserves this fight…Khan has done nothing to EARN this fight or a title shot. Simple as that. Had Mayweather chose Khan and ignored the other three, more credible, polls, he wouldve been criticized for that too.

The only way Floyd would have kept my respect by fighting kahn, is if it was winner take all. Because kahn only thought he was entitled to cash. Wake up people! Look how the little worm was taking to his internet arab community to cry, beg, and demand. Thank you Floyd for putting this nonsense into the place that it belongs. However, I have never rooted against Floyd until now…I think I want to see Marcos win. Yet I think we all know the outcome.

Blessings

Posted February 25, 2014 9:13 pm

Maybe- I dont Mayweather is scared of Khan. Nah I dont think that. Either man would still lose to Mayweather so instead he (Mayweather) went with the more popular fighter (Maidana). Maidana also has that win over Broner. (aka Mayweather’s baby bro) so it makes for a good build up for the fight. What’s Khan build up story gonna be? He barely made it past Diaz. Maidana’s pressure style is perfect for Mayweather’s defensive style. So thats a bonus. Khan would have been ok for about the first 4 rounds then he would have gotten KO. Khan has a weak chin and he is wreckless. A bad combination to have as a fighter. So scared you ask? Nah…

Mayweather, maybe he didn’t want to fight Khan, speed etc, didn’t suit him, so went for the easier option in his mind which was Maidana.

Ahhhhh..little khan boo is hurt. Floyd has always delayed his announcements so what the h_ll is khan talking bout? There was the super bowl, then the announcement of bradley-Pac, the cotto martinez and then floyd. Floyd commands a lot more attention than any of the fights above.

Khan is getting what hr deserves and to blame his actions on floyd is pathetic. Really it is. But haterz will do their best to hate this selection. Khan shut up, move up and earn it.

Khan may have won the Twitter poll, but he lost every other major online poll out there. Most importantly the ESPN boxing poll in which he lost by over 30%. Floyd doesn’t show respect to anyone so why Khan thought that he would earn Floyd’s respect is laughable and shows he is seriously delusional as to how popular he is. If you were to ask Khan he’d tell you he’s a Top Ten Pound For Pound fighter… and honestly he’s barely a Top 20.

Q

And anyway he talks too much, so there you have it. He has shown a lack of for Floyd, saying he thinks this and that and the time is right, but he forgot that he’s on Floyd’s time. Good job Floyd. Meanwhile, Khan beat Madonna, however… the trajectory of these two careers are going in opposite directions. Maidana just one the biggest fight of his career and has been looking better than ever, while Khan has been getting put on queer street against journeymen. Great excellent move by Floyd. He also has that if Broner comes back stronger than ever and makes this career something spectacular anyway, then Floyd would have still big brothered him by taking out his bully. However, Khan had a heck of a struggle against Broner physically. Maidanna was dead tired towards the end of that fight, and besides Broner’s cruddy defensive skills, and offense-defense fluidity, Broner was actually hurting madonna at points of that fight. As well as the fact that Broner was moving up and Madonna was at one point even talking about 154 I think. Well, Floyd just beat a big 154 pound world champion, so Madonna’s chances here… are slim and none, but we’ll see what happens. If Maidana beats Floyd after beating Broner, that will make by itself a hell of a career. It’s just very unlikely, barring a “lucky” punch

Just like Khan screwed with Alexander because of the fight he wanted with Floyd. He would have been able to fight Alexander in December, then take a couple months off, then have 3 months to start training. He just wanted to make sure he didn’t lose or anything. He put his career on hold a few months for trying to line up the stars. Oh well.

No matter what anyone thinks of Khan, he is right: Floyd could at least have had the courtesy to not delay and/or inform everyone who he decided to fight. He’s left Khan on the hook for weeks.

ONE FINAL POINT – No way do I believe Maytwitters official/unofficial poll could’ve been better than ESPN’s, RING Magazine, and the other poll….I don’t have twitter, so I didn’t votte… but I did on RING and ESPN, real Sports Polls…. Maidana won on every single one….. except Floyd’s….

Posted February 25, 2014 7:04 pm 


kato3388

NO KHAN – as much as I dislike Floyd Maytwitter…. You! Yourself delayed your own career. You decide to not take the fight with Devon Alexander, with the smallest hopes of fighting a big money fight. What!?!!? Did you not have faith in your skills? Did you not think you were gonna win against Devon??? Well, Shawn Porter took your spot, and he came out a winner. So, as far as I can see it, you can take a rematch with Peterson, which will be as dull as the last fight, I think you won that fight btw, and was robbed… but that’s neither here, nor there…. Or, you can take on Shawn Porter, which I highly doubt you will, because Shawn looks like a beast. Way better fighter than Prescott every could hope to be….

Posted February 25, 2014 7:00 pm

So crybaby Khan won’t avenge any of his losses, wouldn’t give Maidana a rematch, and dissed Devon Alexander for a Floyd fight that was based on bad advice from someone? Now he’s mad cause he’s left out in the cold??? I’ve heard it all.

Marcelo – Manchester – Uk

This is just embarrassing… just do us all a favour and disappear, no one cares cry cry cry wah wah wah!!!

He didn’t choose you as you haven’t had a meaningful win since 2011…. two wins over blown up lightweights isn’t good enough and you didn’t exactly look good in either of those wins…

you turned down a title fight as you were scared of losing but a win would have given you some credibility….

Instead of doing a david haye in talking a good fight and nagging klitchko why don’t you instead do what he did…. go and win a title in a division you have NEVER fought in and earn your shot….

mayweather chose maidana as hes coming off a big win in his own career… quit crying and playing the victim as you only have yourself to blame…

pot…kettle…black…. isn’t it funny you kept alexander waiting then ducked numerous times, I love karma when it evens out….

this is all evidence that boxing has some morals after all… thank you mayweather and the people on all those ESPN.. RINGMAGAZINE websites (not mayweathers with khans twitter followers bombarding it) the boxing fans helped this by not letting some big eared crybaby winge and moan his way to a title shot he NEVER EVER DESERVED!!!!!!

Oh happy day!!! Now go and fight someone decent and dry those tears…..

I LOVE KARMA!!!!!!

Respect from the uk, usa keep him there no one here likes him and his true colours have been shown!!!

Khan simply needs to win a couple of big fights before September. If he does that, then he’ll get his shot at Floyd. Assuming Floyd beats Maidana and doesn’t get upset. If that happens then we’ll be in for a Floyd and Maidana trilogy.

Posted February 25, 2014 6:38 pm 


BUSTAJAY

Khan is smart. He knows that he can still try and cash in on Floyd. The tricky part is that now he has to win his next fight and the question is, will he move to 147?

At 147 I do not see Khan doing well based on the current names at 147 and hell 140 is not too safe.

Khan showed grace and class….well done and I was shocked he was so nice based on how Floyd and his team Money treated Khan.

Posted February 25, 2014 6:33 pm

Amir never “ducked” anyone? What about Alexander?

This statement looks as though it was written by a teenage girl about a boy who didn’t really like her. Ridiculous. Amir needs to go fight someone of substance at 147 and stop talking about what might have been.

Considering your trainer strongly advised you take that fight against Alexander you should be questioning who strongly advised you not too. That only made you look like a coward. And considering you also did the same thing to Alexander. Plus why would they not want you to take that fight? That would of made you an active fighter and not been out for a whole year which is quickly approaching. Terrible on Khans part.

If Khan fought in the ring just 1% in comparison to all the statements he feels he has to make — He wouldn’t have had a problem securing a fight with Floyd.
