There are whispers that undefeated pound for pound star, Floyd Mayweather, will face off against Britainís Amir Khan on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Starting to look more and more that not only is this the fight we'll get on May 5, 2012, but that this may have been the plan by Team Mayweather for some time.

Anyone with any sort of objectivity can look at Floyd's history and know for ****ing sure he's not going to fight Khan or ****ing Guerrero, just like dumbasses were saying he was going to fight Malignaggi, and before that Matthew Hatton.

No thanks, but if the author of that post wants to do a ban bet with you, go for it!

Well, Mayweather did 'shoot down' Canelo, Guerrero and Cotto, but not Khan.

Just sayin'

Article from November 2011:

Quote:
If Mayweather's May 5 fight isn't with Pacquiao, other potential rumored opponents include Amir Khan and Sergio Martinez.
Remember, Mayweather chose the May 5, 2012 date before Pac-JMM III. Before Khan-Peterson. Khan was going to roll Peterson, so the thinking went. But the plan got blown up.

So, this could be Judah II we're seeing here.

Looks like either Mayweather-Peterson or Mayweather-Khan.

Guess is it's Mayweather-Khan. And, as I pointed out above, this may have been the plan all along.

If Khan beat Peterson, he would have been the prime candidate for May 5th.

But because he lost, I doubt it.

Hope it doesn't happen.

who the **** is Tom Gray and why does he say Khan inexplicably withdrew appeal when it was explained loudly and clearly?

The IBF wasn't allowing all officials to be present to testify, they felt it wasn't a fair hearing, and since they already had backing of WBA, they withdrew.

Do your ****ing homework

Since his "retirement", before every Mayweather opponent announcement, there has been a steady stream of unsatisfactory opponents boxing fans do not agree with. Same goes for this one, I don't expect Khan to be the opponent (it would honestly end his career/chances of making it huge in America IMO).
