It's obvious and his team indirectly yet openly hinted why last year when Khan barked about wanting Alexander only to go back to twitter when Alexander's team responded back. His team know that any risky fight could indefinitely kill off his chances at a free major payday against Mayweather so they're stalling and hoping Mayweather(who clearly lacks options) will finally oblige.

Lopez

What a joke of a fight!

He is inactive because he is trying to dodge certain fighters and wants the safe way to fight Floyd, look at the way he dodged Alexander

Khan and his people know his punch resistance isn't great and want to get him fights that will build to a big pay day against mayweather . For khan now it's about making one big payday then getting out if his ego will allow

If he dodges fights though, he'll never get the Floyd fight.

Floyd isnt going to fight a guy coming off a year old win against Luis Collazo.

So he pretty much has to fight in December and win against a decent opponent

Because he's a ***** who is afraid of stepping in the ring with any live opponent(to which there are many in the welterweight division) that will jeopardise his big pay day with floyd.

Its harder to cherry pick at 147lbs than 140lbs where most of the fighter were smaller than con.

The main reason he aint fighting 3 times a year is because of the timing of Ramadan as it falls in the middle of the year, this is according to him. So he should be back to 3 times a year soon. He is also fighting on December 6th vs Guerrero, its taking a long time to announce it but the fights still 2 months away.

Thinks he is Entitled to a Mayweather fight so he isn't going to risk his Glass Jaw getting shattered. The last bum he fought knocked him down and it scared is management.
