Diaz: Look What I Did To Khan, Now He Gets Mayweather?

Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Former champion Julio Diaz is a little surprised that Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) is potentially getting a shot at Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) on May 3rd at the MGM Grnad in Las Vegas. Khan has not fought since the April outing against Diaz. In that fight, Diaz was viewed as an aging veteran being sent to the slaughterhouse, but instead he dropped Khan in the fourth round and then badly hurt him several times in the fight. Khan was lucky to walk away with a close unanimous decision on scores of 115-113, 114-113 and 115-112.

"How do you have someone [like Khan] fight someone who is the best fighter in the world. He has to be an elite fighter. I don't think Amir Khan has earned the right credentials to be in the ring with Mayweather. Look at me, I'm supposedly a washed up fighter, out the door, and look what I did [to Khan] - and after me he comes against Mayweather? Businesswise, it makes sense because he has a big following. I think Mayweather is looking people who bring something to the table and Khan is one of them, he has that big following in the UK," Diaz said.
