Amir Khan Eyes Maidana Rematch, Guerrero, Porter

Amir Khan has no shortage of options at welterweight - if he doesn't land WBC/WBA champion Floyd Mayweather Jr in the fall. Khan made his debut at 147 last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and won a clear twelve round decision over former champion Luis Collazo. On the same card, Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision over Marcos Maidana.

"I want to fight again at the end of the year. I don't want to take a long time out of the ring like I did last time. I want to fight someone in the top 10. There are a few big names out there," Khan told Sky Sports Ringside. "I think Robert Guerrero could be an ideal opponent in the future, even a rematch with Marcos Maidana or Shawn Porter, who just had a great win," Khan said.

"Porter is a great fighter; he is very strong and very quick. I think with Manny Pacquiao, Tim Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez it would be quite hard to make the fight because they are with Bob Arum. Alexander is another fight that could be possibly made; we were talking about getting that fight done. But yes, there are a few names there that I am looking at, which could definitely make sense."

At least he is gunning for the biggest threats, gotta respect him for that. I'd like to see him fight Porter, Guerrero doesn't do much for him at this point. And to earn a shot at Maidana he should fight…

[QUOTE=Box-Office;14535640]Lame is Chino fans holding on to Round 10 and claiming ref was paid off. It's funny people are now saying Collazo was paid off too. Imagine overcoming the odds so often that people start to think that the system…
