Khan doesn't bring anything to the table apart from a noise.
This post.

Khan is nothing to PBF. He was attractive 1 year ago but not not.

I want him to fight ***y Sergio. My dream fight. W against Bradley and W against Marquez is probably he order or the day.

Make no mistake about it, as soon as GBP got involved with Khan the Mayweather fight was their ultimate goal.

Unfortunately for them, every time it got close, Khan got beat.

He was supposed to unify against Peterson, and then step up to 147... Once he got beat, Mayweather was off the table into the drug thing came about. Khan & GBP went into
PR overdrive to effectively whipe the defeat from the records (unofficially anyway)

After that came the Garcia defeat which pretty much killed it dead.

GoldenBoy must be gutted because that fight (had Khan unified against Peterson & then beat a "name" @147 would have been huge!)

Anyone with half a boxing brain knows that Khan's getting battered but that wouldn't stop the fight from selling.

You've got 2 fighters that people love to hate. It's a licence to print money.

You've for tons of Khan & Mayweather fan boys buying it... Then you've also got the haters, and both of these have a shit load of them.

I hate when people go on about he was KTFO when in actual fact the ref stopped the fight whilst khan was standing up right (you probably didn't watch the fight, did you?), I'd understand if you'd said he got KTFD though.

This is good from a businesspointofview. Khan still has big following in the uk and mayweather is... Well mayweather. From a boxing point of view khan gets ktfo rd 6

I agree that it will happen. GBP bring it up too much to not want to make it. I think they recognise it is a fight where they can con the public into buying into the names not the match up. Much like Haye vs Harrison and perhaps as one sided minus a brutal ko but I wouldnt' rule that out.

Khan is a much bigger name to the casual fan than Martinez, not to mention he's nowhere near the threat. If there's one thing Floyd cares about as much as money it's keeping his 'O'.

There's no chance he fights Martinez, not even if it's the last fight or his career to cash out. He'll find a similar payday else where for nowhere near the risk, such as Khan.

If Khan wants to fight Mayweather he better not rematch Garcia and avoid Matthysse, Ortiz, Berto
He should rematch Peterson then move up to 147 n fight the winner of Alexander/Brook then if he gets past them fight Floyd
