Maidana while game and talented is very hittable boxer and will be an easier task for Floyd. I suspect that Floyd reaches out for Maidana and ducks Khan. If Floyd- Khan is confirmed I'm betting Khan at a healthy price.

How would that be ducking Khan??? And who has Khan beat at 147 to even deserve the fight? If we wanna get technical, Pacman is the mandatory challenge for Mayweather's belt. Mayweather said he will vacate the belt if he has to face Pacman.

Khan wil be lucky if he makes it to the final bell. Fight probably goes 8 rounds if he fights smart. He was KO'd by a 140 lb Garcia in four rounds and he was dropped by a washed up Julio Diaz in his last fight and managed to squeak out a narrow victory. This fight is about money for Floyd. The only thing Khan brings to the show is a substantial British fan base and household name which helps with PPV numbers which is all Floyd cares about so long as the risk is minimal.

Take Mayweather out where? Out to the movies? Out to dinner?

Mayweather can pick and choose his opponents, and fighting Khan could be an opportunity for him to fight in the UK. Also I've read that if they fight across the pond it would be on CBS TV in the states, which would be a good idea because honestly that as a PPV would be a hard sell. The good thing about this fight as it does give time for legit challengers like Danny Garcia to build their resume. Mayweather-Garcia would be awesome.

If this fight does happen i want to see Floyd be the aggressor and knock him out. If he just helds back and counters like always then that justs shows he only cares about himself and not the fans. Put on a good show floyd, don't depend on Canelo and Broner to be in your undercard
Mayweather is not fighting MP until he leaves TOP RANK PERIOD

Why does that even matter?

Does Pacquaio got to divorce his wife and give up his kid for adoption too?

Remember, none of these Top Rank issues started until people wanted Mayweather to fight Pacquaio.

If Pacquaio leaves Arum, what other excuse will Mayweather have?

Who cares if he works for Arum. Mayweather will still dictate the terms. At this point, he needs to just grow some balls and fight the man.

You can't talk bad about a man in the sport of boxing, and then run away, not giving the man a chance to defend himself.

That's what a coward does. If Mayweather doesn't plan on fighting Pacquaio, he needs to shut his mouth, and go fight Khan.

I'm tired of hearing about this fight. Either fight the man or shut the hell up.

Your kidding me right? De La Hoya went through the same "issues" with Arum when he was trying to leave top Rank himself a few years ago

There is a very thin line between Bob Arum and Don King

Look man, I want the fight, you want the fight, Pacquaio wants the fight.

Bob Arum doesn't give a damn, he gets paid either way.

Who doesn't want the fight?

Mayweather

It's not hard to connect the dots. The man is playing the role of the antagonizing coward. Insulting a man when he's down and not giving him the opportunity to whup his ass in the ring.

If the fight happens and Mayweather wins, well at least Pacquaio got an opportunity.

But give the man an opportunity or shut the hell up and apologize to the fans and to Pacquaio.

Bradley and Garcia are both WAY more deserving than either Khan or Maidana.
