Khan's win over Callazo does not do anything for his stock as a fighter as far as I'm concerned. Seeing how he was KO'd by Danny Garcia in only four rounds at 140 lbs, I can't see Khan avoiding the same fate against Mayweather. I also think Porter, Provodnikov and Thurman would knock him out rather easily. I would like to see Khan fight Broner. I think it would be a more competitive fight for him with a greater chance at a victory.

Yeah. Even though Mayweather is a slickster, he has enough pop to break that glass.

Don't get me wrong, I used to like Khan with his combo of speed, power, and skills, but it looks like he is becoming the latest chinny bastard to stink up the sport with a "jab and grab" style.

According to that guys logic, Khan would have to fight the best offensive fight he's ever had in his career. Floyd would also need to age dramatically between now and the fight. Mayweather may have lost 2 steps, but he's still miles ahead of Khan as a fighter.

It was clear that Amir Khan held the aces over Floyd before the Floyd-Maidana fight. After watching Kahn-Collazzo & Floyd- Maidana last week Kahn out speeding and crushing Floyd is a foregone conclusion. Comping at the bit the lay into Kahn with a powerful wager with so much dumb money lingering on Floyd based on past glory.

Khan looked decent, but he was hurt in moments in this fight. He still hasn't proven anything at Welterweight. I think Thurman would lay him out EASY

Thurman would kill Khan. There's no way GBP let's Thurman within 20 feet of Khan.

It's disgraceful that Floyd would only consider Maidana or Khan as his next opponent when there were more competitive and deserving options out there. Then he makes a big show of letting his fans choose his next opponent. They chose Khan and he still ducks him and chooses Maidana. Good to see he is a man of his word. I don't think he will fight Khan. Not that I think Khan can beat him, but Floyd won't look good doing it and he has to find a way to weasel out of a rematch with Maidana.

I agree. I would be very surprised if they made that fight. I think it's going to be tough for Thurman to get fights for a while.
