Yeh he should fight Romanov in Feb then the winner of Thaxton vs Murray. A fight for the Commonwealth, European and British titles would be Huge.

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 ****ed 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.

OK it seems alot of you are saying he should fight the winner of Murray vs Thaxton before Romanov. Seeing as it will be Febuary time when he fights next and Murray vs Thaxton won't happen until then.

McAlister would be a good option to get some rounds under his belt, sticking him in with a tough african would also be good, perhaps someone like a Miranda who can hurt but be hurt.

Although there has been speculation about Murray v Thaxton that fight hasn't actually been made yet to my knowledge.

Thaxton is the most obvious candidate for Khan next but you never know with ****** - could be someone we haven't considered yet!

Thaxton will not fight Murray if Khan is on the cards

He probably gets beat into near retirement by both, and Khan would be MUCH the bigger payday

Hopefully they do get Romanov.

Beating Earl must have been the icing on the cake for Khan on his birthday.

Hope you enjoy yours today Max - saw it on the forum home page when I logged on!

I think Thaxton reckons he can beat both. He beats Murray but not Khan!

Think it is when the boxers promoters are invited to put forward their best bid for control of the said bout i.e when and where it takes place, etc.
