    Yes thats right, four years ago prior to when Maidana was fighting at 140lbs and weight drained

    The maidana that fought and beat Broner at 147 with Robert Garcia would have battered Amir Khan.

    And like Zab was a front runner who was mentally weak with a shaky chin. The biggest difference is that Zab was actually the harder match up for PBF than Khan would be because he was a southpaw he had more pop and he could actually beat PBF to the punch and was more of a natural counter puncher than Khan was. Khan was never faster than PBF and would have been beaten to the punch all night long by him. Even in 2013 a faded PBF would have tooled Khan.

    Khan was faster than Floyd. He would have lost the fight, but he would cause problems with his speed.

    Mayweather was never a blinding speed type guy anyways. He had good speed, but not special speed. Watch Leonard Hearns and seen the different levels of speed.

    Hell Zab was faster and even Duran could match Floyd for speed.

    Pimp...he made a poll! Why did he even do that in the first place? I'm aware of his high profile win over Broner. That alone doesn't make you a star.

    Why did Floyd make the poll in the first place? It wasn't for internet statistics.

    Even with Khan's glass chin, Floyd wouldn't be able to knock him out, which poses a problem as Khan's speed and output make him hard to outpoint (Olympic silver).

    Floyd ducked as soon as it was available. I'd say after Corrales it was mostly about money.

    No he wasn't. Not with one punch he was not. This is the same dumb stuff I heard form Pac fans for year saying he was faster than PBF yet he was beaten to the punch and looked to be a step slower than PBF all night long. Combo speed isn't the same as being able to throw one punch faster PBF has better reflexes than Khan and would beat him to the punch which is better more usable speed in a boxing match.

    It made him hotter and more relevant than Khan was at that time that's for damn sure. He had a belt and Khan had just went life and death with Diaz a guy I thought retired from boxing years ago. You already know which fight was the better fight at that point. PBF would have been bashed for fighting Khan hell he was getting bashed here when the poll was being talked about for even considering Khan. ESB had a poll back then and Maidana won it going away.

    Yet back then I'm sure you said PBF should fight Maidana instead of Khan yet when he fights Maidana years later you want to change your tune and say Khan gives PBF fits when in all reality PBF is a stylistic nightmare for Khan to anyone who knows boxing. LMFAO!

    No it was made because it was a better fight to take at the time, Maidana was far more deserving. It made sense.

    If Danny Garcia was able to time Khan once he'd come to terms with his speed, I'm damn sure Mayweather would've. People get hung up on Khan's speed - which in isolation is impressive - but he never mixes it up and never changes his rhythm. And he nearly always at some point backs off in a straight line with a lazy low right hand.

    So okay, Floyd didn't have Canelo's power, or hit as hard as Garcia but he would have punished Khan often enough for his sloppiness and kindergarten ring IQ to make this match-up a non-issue in my eyes. Khan is the modern day definition of 'overrated'.

    Speed kills... perspective...

    How can you guys say he didn't want a challenge or was all about money after these fights when he was still under Top Rank? He wasn't making money at all really until years later.. Yall just be saying stuff just to say it and there's no way you believe it...lol

    And why a poll? To give the fans what they don't want?

    You cant compare 147 Pac to 126 Pac speed wise. There's a massive difference. Pac has or I should say had, noticeably faster feet and combos. FMJ had noticeably faster reflexes. One shot speed is debatable, but Mayweather is 2 or 3 inches taller and has a huge reach advantage.

    I still think Khan is faster than Mayweather. And if they fought in 2013 he would of course be faster.
