    Khan is a orthodox boxer puncher he beats guys by outboxing them. PBF's defense is tailormade to deal with orthodox boxer punchers like Khan because they throw punches from predictable angles that PBF can anticipate or can see them easily and can react and defend against them accordingly. PBF is an outboxer Khan isn't going to beat PBF at his own game he can't outbox PBF for 7 rounds, if you think he can you're high. He's tricky early due to his speed but he fades and doesn't make adjustments and is chinny, he would be figured out timed and outboxed by PBF wide UD or TKO is the logical pick here.

    Khan gets off to a good start, Floyd starts taking over after the 4th and begins timing him before stopping him around the 8th round.

    Mayweather actually would have had a good chance of getting a KO on his record. Not sure why he opted to fight Maidana. A Kahn fight would have made more money.

    Much like the Judah fight.

    Khan will have early success. Then Floyd takes over.

    Got to be joking, Mayweather would have torn Khan a new one.

    Khan would have looked good for 3 to 4 rounds


    Then his lack of ring IQ kicks in and Floyd would just pick him apart

    Mayweather would have been wearing Khan's hat for a few rounds.

    This would have been a good fkn fight shame it didn't happen.. Floyd probably would have won but let's not act like he didn't cherrypick his entire career. Let's also not forget he was a notorious card stacker. He should have fought Amir Khan and I think Amir Khan would have had a good chance. Khan has glaringly **** defence at times but super quick hands and feet, Floyd would have likely timed him at some point but it would have been an uncomfortable fight for him and not a given as Floyd was master cherry picking fraud which gave the illusion of him being unbeatable

    Let's not pretend Pacquiao wasn't old. Pacs victories after Mayweather are good though. I say good and not great because Thurman was inactive prior to Pac and in the second half Thurman did take over (despite that brutal body shot), Broner and Horn are meh.

    Let's not forget Mayweathers fantastic wins against Old Mosley, Green catchweight Clenelo roids, old Marquez, old Oscar and 140 Ricky Hatton with the bought ref

    It's funny how people scream TBE and forget about his completely manufactured cherrypicked career. Fraud

    If Khan boxes from distance and let’s his superior hand speed score the points then FMJ can’t beat him.

    Floyd doesn’t have enough power to KO Khan even with his suspect chin so his only hope is Amir getting overconfident and ignoring the game plan. That allows Floyd to use his superior ring IQ to set traps and lures for Amir to walk into giving Floyd an avenue to outscore his opponent.

    Khan just needs to think speed, speed, speed and then let the punch combinations flow.

    There's a reason Floyd chose Maidana over the guy who BEAT Maidana!

    Nothing but hate and excuses. If PBF is a fraud, then what does that make everyone who lost to him? They're frauds since they couldn't beat him and most of them lost badly.
