"A year ago, you'd have laughed me out for suggesting this, but even I had a hunch, and now I'm going to go ahead and say it: I think ultimately Khan has a better chance of beating Mayweather than Pacquiao does," Lampley opined. "I think his height and his long arms and the ability to operate behind the really offensive jab, those things would give him a better chance, stylistically, than Pacquiao has. It's going to be a matter of timing, but just from the standpoint of his weaponry, to me, Amir has a better shot. That could be a tremendous overestimation of his talent and I could look foolish for saying it, but I just feel like he's getting better every single day and the other two guys can feel it"
Khan does, but his chin doesn't. Mayweather knocks him out. I know Mayweather isn't a big puncher, but Khan moves up and takes a counter to the chin, he's gone.

If Pacquiao has one more fight in him and doesnt look like **** like against Mosley and Marquez, he can still win. Mayweather is a great counter puncher but at the same time is defensive first, that's a lot of time for Pac to land greazy shots and rack up points. Mayweather will only pot shot, and set up single punch counters. If you swarm him he won't fight back, hell shell roll and turtle on the ropes and look to re align himself.
