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

The way things are panning out Khan could be right in the mix if Khan wins his next 2 bouts at least starting with the past his prime but yet still dangerous Zab Judah.

Khan has to be 100% focused on this fight but I will just look ahead if I may to see what fights Khan can have next if he gets past Zab.

Now Khan has chased Bradley before Zab with no success, so why should after beating Zab Khan would become in my view No.1 at 140 find Bradley, Khan is the bigger draw so Bradley should come looking for Khan.

Going by the Primetime preview Khan feels after beating Zab there is no one left to face at
140 for him and a move up looks in weight looks likely, let me add I really feel Khan is going to feel, perform better at 147 which I feel even right now would be Khan's ideal weight class.


Ramadan starts in Aug, so Khan won't be fighting till Nov/Dec if Bradley fight can be made by then good if not then 147 it is, who could it be?

Alfonso Gomez?

Shane Mosley?

Kell Brook in UK?

Andre Berto?

I would not mind Shane Mosley if Floyd and Manny can fight him then why not Khan?

I then hope Floyd-Manny gets made because it would give Khan some more time to refine.

Then hoping Kell Brook by spring 2012 picks up a version of a World Title and Khan can fight him for it in a great domestic match up.

But if Floyd-Manny can't be made Khan might lock horns with Floyd early summer 2012 a fight which won't be hard to put together as both ate co-promoted by GBP and would be a in house fight.

Judah then Morales then Brook then Mayweather.

They want him to go down in class en route to Floyd

Amir should concentrate on Zab. Enough of this future ****, one step at the time and that is the best available. After Zab, he might re-visit Bradley or someone else may have stepped up massively i.e. Guerrero sparks Maidana.

Very tough fight is Judah. Khan needs to used the jab and box smartly. If he rushes in arms flapping like he has been doing recently he will be doing the chicken dance. Khan should have a cautious first 6 rounds throwing nothing more then the jab.. straight rights to head and body. Then open up with combinations in the second half of the fight when Judah is tiring.

Bradley is still generally recognised as the #1 at 140 so personally I think he should wait until he's had that bout first before moving up.

I strongly doubt he'd ever face Mayweather but with his lack of ring IQ, he'd be in for an embarrassing evening if he did.

Khan hasnt a ****in prayer against Mayweather, it would be an absolute **** take. He is obviously name dropping Floyd for much needed publicity.

Bradley is the guy he has to go after. Most important fight for Khan atm.

that sentence gave me a headache...

but yeah, as a previous poster said i dont like the idea of khan stepping down in class on the way to fighting mayweather.

if he beats judah, khan - bradley has to happen in December. i think bradley will be more receptive to the matchup with the extra belt on the line as long as neither side start making unrealistic money demands.

I like Khan but at least let him beat Judah before these kind of threads are made.

I think Khan would do better than Hatton did put it that way, Khan won't be rushing in or anything it will be a chess match a match Roach would of carefully laid out.

I want to see that type of control vs Zab aswell, more thinking before throwing.

Khan's jab could cause Floyd problems early but it wouldn't take long for Floyd to take it away and start dominating.

No fighter remains the same, age DOES have an effect, we need to also see what state Floyd is in after his layoff, a fighter which relies on his defensive reflexes has to remain sharp to the sec, Ortiz can ask some questions.

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.

Tbh it wouldn't surprise me if they did try an push the mosley fight but TV wouldn't take it I think, shane is done, finished.
If khan performs well in this one and beats a top welter then **** yeah let's have mayweather next year
