Default Re: Amir Khan could be 2 to 3 more fights away from fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr

Win or lose just Khan being in the same ring as Mayweather is an achievement in it self, who would thought back in 2008 when Khan got KO in under a min that he would become a world champion let alone fight Floyd Mayweather Jr

Thing is Khan's handspeed would find Floyd's face more than most others would purely due to Khan's speed it's a law of nature, Floyd don't like getting hit even with one shot, and I can see Khan taking the first few rounds with his output and jab.
B-Hop has showed with pure commitment that it is not always the case. A late 30's Mayweather would still have the ring generalship to beat Khan and still be near the top of the P4P list imo. He trains as hard if not harder then anybody out there and keeps in superb shape even in long lay off's.

I think Guerrero is quality. Very tidy boxer, but it's still a winnable fight for Khan but a very even match up imo. However i think Khan's speed would be too much for Marquez who is getting caught more as he is getting older. He still has the beautiful counter-punching skills that could give Khan huge problems. Khan would put a hurting on Katsidis i'm afraid. And Rios, if i were Khan i would forget about fighting him! I don't think Amir has the power to keep him off!

Very true but fighers at lower weights have less reaction time to adjust so their mistakes are less likely to be gotten away with. B-Hops don't party or stay out like Floyd does, Hops in bed by 10pm latest, B-Hop lifestyle plays a big part in his condition in the ring.

Just my take on things, all we know Floyd could be another Hopkins and rule for at least another 10 years who knows.

I see where your coming from but i think the media and fans make a meal out of Mayweathers lifestyle. If he had the party lifestyle it would show in his fights, From what i gather he hardly even drinks, he just goes to the clubs and likes to be centre of attention. Also B-Hop is a freak of nature
