    Kimbo slice? He was not really an mma fighter just a side show. The show was probably TUF (the ultimate fighter)

    Yup that'd be TUF. Did he have dan henderson or Jason miller as captain on the other side?

    Did you see how concerned and scared Mayweather was? Did you see the fear in his eyes? Lol of course you didnt. Mayweather was casually eating diced fruit. He aint even worried. The first thing that comes to his mind is khans 'fan base' and how much money he can earn. This fight is a 'gimme' for floyd. Floyd knows khans speed is great but he doesnt have on punch KO, he doesnt hit at funny angles like Pacman, he isnt as durable as the maidanas, cotto or margarito.

    Heres the truth:

    Never thought he'd beat him; just that floyd is entertaining the idea of the fight quite seriously - due to khans fanbase.

    yes thats what we were saying all along, Khan can bring in the money and FMJ isnt named Team Money for nothing!All about creating new avenues of revenue for FMJ and conquering whatever there is left for him.
    Maybe after he batters Khan, he will gain all of Khan's fans too, have a Pakistani following all over the world lol
    Would be like the mughals invading India all over again

    FMJ isnt really a KO artist, I think he will play it safe after accumlating a lead and take a wide points margin but then again Khan does have a chin as dodgy as Saj 's sense of humour so its always possible he will be KO'd

    Then again molina wasn't a big punchers but he gave Khan the wobbles. I'm more worried about the fact that mayweather has enough pop to Sting Khan and throw him into that Pakistani school fight mentality where he starts throwing punches at anything resembling a target. Once he's stuck in that mode Khan will be picked apart.

    he doesn't I agree, but I can see Khan getting hit quite badly in a number of exchanges, so I can't say for sure if a bad cut here or there won't make the ref step in lol

    From Mayweathers body language and his choice of words the fight with Khan is on . He would be stupid not to take it. Its low risk and fairly high pay .

    I see Mayweather winning comfortably on points I don't think he's much of a ko type of fighter .He will give Khan a glimpse of hope in the first few rounds but will end up toying with him for the rest of the fight. Khan will start well using the hand speed but will tire out.As Wajid said he will lose his patience and try to go toe to toe but fail miserably.

    Khan's career could be over or could be a blossom depends on this match. I believe he made a big mistake. He should have gone for some title matches and wait for his good time. It's way too early to fight someone tougher.

    There was no contract, just khan spouting garbage! Leanord Ellerbe, Al Hayman or maywetaher would have had to know the terms etc. Floyd said nothings been agreed as to purse, location etc so how could Khan have a contract?

    Dude tweeted this garbage.​

    Khan showing signs of desperation for Mayweather fight
    It’s been four days since Amir Khan officially won the poll on Floyd Mayweather Jr’s website that supposedly gives the 27-year-old Khan the fight with the star fighter on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather’s silence on the issue seems to be affecting Khan judging by his recent tweets, because Khan is starting to show signs of worry with his comments. The above comment seems to be a situation where Khan is showing as much respect as possible to Mayweather. I just hope Khan doesn’t resort to referring to Mayweather as “your highness” or “your excellency.”
    “Would like to Thank all the fans who voted for me on the @FloydMayweather poll, just waiting for him to announce the fight now,” Khan said on his Twitter site.
    Mayweather would shake up a lot of people if he were to tell fans that he changed his mind about leaving it up to a poll to select his next opponent. If Mayweather ignores the poll that Khan won at Mayweather Promotions and decides on giving Marcos Maidana the fight, it’s going to have Khan pretty bummed out. All that time he wasted in waiting for the fight to happen. Khan turned down a fight with Devon Alexander last December because he didn’t want to take any chances of getting beat.
    Roger Mayweather said to esnewsreporting that he was told that Maidana will be the one getting the fight now, and not Khan. Whether Roger is in the loop or not about who Mayweather Jr. will be fighting next is unknown. If this is true about Maidana getting the fight then it’s going to be really bad for Khan. Not only won’t get the fight and the payday of his life, but it’ll also mean that he wasted tons of time with this.
    Khan won the twitter poll by encouraging his 1.4 million followers to vote for him. However, Khan was wiped out in four other polls that didn’t require people to use twitter or Facebook to login.

    Well he can now box Broner and stylistically we can use him as a gauge to see how he would have fared against maywetaher. The idiot will be a tough fight for broner. At least we'll see Khan concentrate on boxing rather than the Paycheck.

    lol Khan still not doing himself any favours, embarasses himself far too often outside of the ring. when will he stop chasing money and realise that if he is as good as a boxer as he believes he is, he will have plenty of big pay days to come in the future

    He should have just taken the Alexander fight. If he was good enough to mix with the elite that would have been a good test.

    WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward has gotten the chance to see Amir Khan (28-3, 19 KO’s) up close now that he’s training in the same gym as him in Oakland, California with trainer Virgil Hunter, and Ward likes what he seems. He feels that Khan is throwing with more power than he did previously now that he’s with Hunter, and he thinks he could give anyone in boxing a tough time. Ward didn’t touch on the subject of Khan fighting Mayweather, but obviously he includes him when he says Khan would give anyone trouble.
    “He’s [Khan] awkward and hits harder than guys realize,” Ward said to Hustleboss. “He has an awkward style and it works for him. It’s effective. Just the awkwardness, the speed and the pop that he has. I think that would give anyone trouble on any given night.”
    This is interesting because Khan has a decent chance of getting the fight against Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd. If Ward is right about Khan giving anyone troubles in the sport, then that means that Mayweather could be in for a tough time against him.
    It’s hard to imagine Khan punching harder than he did before, but it’s definitely possible because he’s put on weight in moving up to welterweight. He’s filled out more and that could be showing itself in his punching power. If Khan hasn’t lost anything with his hand speed then he could be a really tough fight for Mayweather, as long Khan fights with more intelligence than he has in his recent fights against Danny Garcia and Julio Diaz. Khan didn’t look like he fighting with ring smarts in either of those fights. But with Virgil Hunter having worked with Khan for more than a year, he should be fighting with more cautiousness and with more of a plan than before.
    Mayweather will likely be making his announcement for his next fight in a week or two. Hes probably not going to wait until March to announce his May 3rd fight because that would leave only 2 months to build up for it.

    I would probably take what Ward says with a pinch of salt, they are in the same camp with the same trainer so they are obviously spending a lot of time with eachother, he is not going to say anything bad about Khan.
    Much like when Khan was with Roach and training with Pacquio people often came out and said Khan was giving Pacquio a good contest in sparring, maybe he did but come fight night we can all see how his career has turned south in recent years.

    Meh, Mayweather v Maidana would be the same old Floyd fight all over again. May as well put his fights against Canelo and Guerrero on repeat.

    I think pretty much most fights are easy for Money May... Canelo was meant to be a test but that turned into another routine mayweather performance.

    Iv looked but can't find anywhere that Floyd has confirmed that he won't be fighting Khan next. Khan may be shooting himself in the foot here with his impatient tweets
