By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter and former two division champion Ricky Hatton is giving close friend and countryman Amir Khan, theWBA and International Boxing Federation light-welterweight champion, a very good shot at beating WBC welterweight titleholder Floyd Mayweather Jr. Hatton suffered his first professional loss to Mayweather by tenth round TKO in 2007. Hatton says the loss was an issue of'styles make fights,' and he feels Khan has the style to give Mayweather problems.

Khan defends his titles against mandatory challenger Lamont Peterson on December 10th, while Mayweather has already reserved the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for a planned HBO pay-per-view fight on May 5th.

You really have to marvel at how much Amir has come on since he lost to Breidis Prescott three years ago. He has become a formidable boxer. Amir has that in-out style which could give [Floyd] Mayweather problems," Hatton told The Daily Telegraph. Floyd likes fighters coming straight at him and Amir has the style to challenge Floyd. Im not saying he would beat Floyd but I think he has a good chance. Im a huge fan of Amir and how much hard work he has put into his career to get to the top of the sport."

[QUOTE=marvin douglas]What a joke! Khan can't even beat Breidas Prescott; he got melted in one round, remember? Next, all you punks who say Floyd ducked Pac, Cotto, and Margo simply don't know boxing. Tell me, what made those guys qualified to fight Floyd? What did they do to force a fight?...

khan has the style to give mayweather problems for 3 rounds, 4 tops. the problem with khan is that the instincts don't seem to be there, and he's rather one paced; take him out of his element, as floyd surely would, and he's done for. mayweather would walk him down and dismantle him on the inside.
