Flea-esque in execution, I agree

A jab and work-rate does shit. Hatton had a jab, workrate and good handspeed and Mayweather mugged him on the inside and the outside.

You need to have all-round skills, the confidence to use them, and a multi-dimensional approach to your game. There aren't any fighters at 147 or around that with those dimensions to their game.

And let's not even pretend Khan could survive Mayweather. Consider that Floyd can do what Khan can do, but better, and he can fight like Peterson when needed, but better, and your boy would be shown up.
I still beg to deffer styles make fights, a shot ODH gave Floyd problems, I think the blue print is there to beat Floyd and you don't have have the all round game as you stated, I think it Khan's style would pose different problems for Floyd ones we not seen for a while.

I don't think Floyd would try walking Khan down, because Floyd would not be willing to take shots or make himself reckless.

If Khan beats Peterson in 2 weeks we still may see this fight.

Instead of saying sorry, please point out why I am wrong.

'make himself reckless' what the **** does this mean? He's stronger, more precise and more rounded than Khan. Amir would not force any mistakes out of him.

'not willing to take shots' Khan has no power.

Volume, and speed they coming at you, Floyd is not Neo from the Matrix, it's not really about power even so we don't know how Khan would be at 147, it's scoring points, FLOYD DON'T LIKE GETTING HITTING REGARDLESS OF POWER.

Floyd never fights fire with fire he backs off goes into defensive mode, it's different if he really countered Khan and hurt him bad then he would walk him down and hurt him.

Floyd walked Mosley down, a dude bigger than Khan who had already wobbled Floyd twice. I don't know why you think he wouldn't walk Khan down. Especially considering that Peterson walked Khan down and Peterson even showed that once you get used to Khan's speed he doesn't present too many problems.

Also, it's daft to think that Khan would just be throwing lightning fast flurries all night to bamboozle Floyd. Mayweather throttles peoples output by constantly countering them. You see it in pretty much every Floyd fight, people stop throwing punches when every time they do they get hit.

Even the version of Shane that Floyd fought could do what Khan does better.
