Text Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin disagrees with a lot of the critics. He says former champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) will not be an easy fight for Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs).

There are ongoing discussions to finalize an opponent for Mayweather's scheduled return, on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Showtime Pay-Per-View will carry the fight.

Khan is one of the frontrunner opponents to challenge Mayweather for the WBC welterweight crown. Most critics view Khan as an easy opponent for Mayweather, but Golovkin thinks the fight will be difficult for both boxers.

"Amir Khan and Floyd is a great fight for everybody. Amir Khan is a good boxer with great speed. It is not an easy fight for him or for Floyd. It is great business [it is a marketable fight]. Floyd is number one in the world. Amir Khan has a lot of fans. This is a great fight for boxing, for sport, for business.  It's a very interesting to me too," Golovkin said.

[QUOTE=boxingmanic]If Guerrero can win 3 rounds v Mayweather then Khan can definitely win 4-6. If his chin holds up that is, which it should.[/QUOTE]3 rounds vs 6 rounds is incredibly different dude lol

gotta love it. Won't be easy for Floyd? Easy money IMO and easy win. Won't be easy for Khan, heck Virgil has no game plan to beat Floyd(said in an interview)...hence Virgil has no confidence in his fighter to actually win... he only says it will be an intersting matchup and Khan will surprise the...
