By Edward Chaykovsky

Manchester superstar Ricky Hatton says countryman Amir Khan is capable of pulling off a huge upset on May 3rd against Floyd Mayweathr Jr. Khan is the frontrunner to face Mayweather for his WBC welterweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Hatton, then undefeated, faced Mayweather is 2007 and was knocked out in ten rounds. Even though he gives Khan a chance, he picks Mayweather to pull through with his undefeated record intact.

Hatton told Talksport's Drivetime: "I do give Khan a chance. I know a lot of people won’t share my enthusiasm, and he will be the underdog, there’s no getting away from that and I think Amir would admit that, but styles make fights.

“Mayweather likes fighters to run at him and attack him, but he never has to go on the front foot and hunt someone down. If Amir could swallow his pride for one fight and use his hand speed and his boxing ability and let Floyd try to jump all over him, he’s probably the only man who can match Floyd for skill.

“Mayweather likes to sit back and use his defence, he can shoulder roll and all that, but his style is harder [to get right] when he’s on the front foot. Amir has got the style to give him big headaches.”

[QUOTE=beast702]oh I understand but I was just making a point. Honestly I like Paulie but his power will have no effect on Khan so I would still favor Khan. Idk his chin is pretty awful and he does has skills to hang with a lot of fighters. For some reason he gets into too many exchanges and he i...

[QUOTE=Shogunofharlem1]I think he means right now and I agree, I seriously doubt he could ride on Paulie today like he did a few years ago. Honestly the powers that be know i too, thats why hes been inactive for a minute. Chasing that win at 147 is likely to get him stomped out and lose what l...

Anybody who knows boxing is aware of this, but unfortunately too many dumb cats are waving the Maidana flag. Don't get me wrong - Maidana is a tough SOB - but he really represents NO threat to Money. Khan is the best option given the current circumstances.

[QUOTE=beast702]Yet he beat Paulie and arguably beat Peterson. But he doesn't deserve the fight but at least get your facts straight before talking.[/QUOTE] I think he means right now and I agree, I seriously doubt he could ride on Paulie today like he did a few years ago. Honestly the power...
