I don't think it really matters who you put him in with, the odds are against anyone half decent he's gonna get sparked.

I think Khan is one of those guys in that he can technically beat anyone in his weight but also can be equally able to be beaten.

ducked the rematch by begging the WBA to give him an extension

Goldenboy seem really keen on trying to get this Khan v Mayweather fight.. So.. even if Khans credentials for it aren't as strong as other fighters I wouldn't be surprised if they still made it. Can't see any reason why Khan wouldn't beat Paulie again.

Khan can beat all of those guys... and also lose spectacularly to them all as well. That's why I'm such a big fan, you never know if he's going to school/dominate a guy or get busted up and stopped. It's ****ing compelling viewing.

Yep, and Paulie would sign up easily.

I'm expecting them to try it off just one of the two (Paulie / Devon), but without either? Again only truly legit if he beats both, in my view.

But
, if Broner wins and Khan can't get the IBF off Devon.....

Malignaggi and maybe Bradley or Alexander but that's a big maybe.

Anyone with a decent bit of pop will have Khan out of there.

Both Alexander and Bradley would stop Khan. Khan may be able to beat Malignaggi becausevas tough as Malignaggi is he cannot punch hard.

He might be able to box his ears off for two or three rounds but what happens when Garcia whacks him on the chin.

I heard Ajose is now working with Memo. Do you think he will now achieve your elite level claims with medical enhancements?

Beat:
Alexander
Malignaggi

Lose to:
Bradley
Peterson

Get knocked out by:
Mayweather
Broner
Garcia
Matthysse

Khan has highly overrated boxing skills. If you can't deal with speed or if you can't punch at all, he can outbox you. Other than that, he's an extremely flawed fighter, his chin just makes it really obvious. Peterson outboxed the hell out of him, and Bradley would do a better job than that. Broner, Garcia, and Matthysse are all bound to catch him at some point. He does best against speedy fighters who can't punch, because he's faster and they aren't used to that. I think he would beat Alexander and Malignaggi convincingly.

I'd prefer to see Khan stay just below championship level. Rios, Alvarado, Lopez, Maidana, Judah, Provodnikov, Thurman, Ortiz, Berto, Brook, and Guerrero ar the sort of fights I'd like to see. Against a world-level opponent with skills, a chin, and a punch, Khan will always get beaten. The other guys have limitations which Khan could exploit, but they also have a shot at beating him so it would be good entertainment and he could make good money.

Khan beat Peterson last time and would beat him again.
