Alexander: Amir Khan Will Never Make it To Mayweather!

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with Devon Alexander "The Great" last week in Las Vegas.  The IBF welterweight champion appears to be headed towards a December 7th showdown against former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan. However during the Floyd Mayweather versus Canelo Alvarez weigh in, The Brit made it known that he could still go in a different direction. 

"I don't know what is going on with Amir Khan. The fans want it. We are close to signing a deal. Hopefully it happens. We'll see," Alexander stated.

There has been talk of Khan potentially facing Mayweather in 2014 should he get past Alexander. The St. Louis, MO based Alexander understands why a Mayweather-Khan matchup is appealing from a dollar perspective but said he has no plans of relinquishing his title.

"Me and my coach talk about this all the time. We know what the powers at be are trying to do but its not going to happen. We know they want Amir Khan instead of me fighting Floyd but its not going to happen. I'm just going to keep being myself. I know he brings that UK money but he's not going to beat me. I've beat some top notch guys and I'm going to keep on winning," Alexander told BoxingScene.com.

Khan should never make it to Floyd - he shouldn't even make it to Devon. He hasn't earned a title shot. .......

[QUOTE=Derranged;13754903]Of course. You're right, Khan vs. Mayweather does have some fan appeal but personally I don't want to see it. Now Floyd vs. Alexander is a fight nobody wants to see, not even the F[COLOR="Black"]lomo[/COLOR]s. Of course they'd defend Floyd's…

[QUOTE=Main Source;13754067]Julio. I actually think Khan would cause more problems for Mayweather than Devon could. Khan would at least jump in while Devon would circle around Mayweather doing nothing. There's no "Money" (no pun intended) in fighting Devon for Floyd.…

[QUOTE=VatoMulatto;13754943]You don't believe this nonsense do you? Khan fights reckless all the time no matter who he fights. He'll be reckless against Devon too.[/QUOTE] Fought pretty smart against Kotelnik, Malinaggi and Judah. Fought pretty dumb against Peterson and Garcia. Even…
