Although the WBU is a minor title that carries no weight, ****** uses it alot and many of its champs have gone on to Main titles, Hatton being an example. McAlister has never really fought anyone of note but has only lost once. Only 5 KOs he would liley be completly out classed by Khan, but could still be an option is Romanov, Thaxton and Earl are tied up.
I think he should fight 3 of the first 4 guys mentioned (winner of Thaxton VS Murray) and then head to the states to fight Cherry.
I can see it being McAlister next, which alot of people will be pissed about but remember Khan is 21, and none of those guys listed have beatan opposition better than Graham Earl, and they certainly could not do it in 1 round.
No disrespect to McAllister but I really hope Khan isn't put in with him next - he could actually lose more than he gains from that fight in terms of credibility. The WBU belt isn't worth taking a backwards step for in my view.
