By Edward Chaykovsky

Former two-division world champion David Haye is giving his countryman, Amir Khan, a good shot to pull off a major upset over WBC 147-pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. Khan is the likely opponent for Mayweather on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Haye gives Khan a better shot to beat Mayweather than any other opponent who faced the pound-for-pound king in the past, because of the British boxer's rapid hand and foot speed.

“Floyd Mayweather is the best fighter I’ve ever seen, he is mesmerising,” Haye told Talk Sport's Drivetime. “If anyone is going to have any success against Mayweather, he has to be fast. He needs fast hands and fast feet. You can’t go at Mayweather and try to out-slug him, people have tried and every single one has failed.

“The key is to have the speed, and more than that to maintain that speed throughout the fight. And if Amir is in the condition he’s currently in - he’s rock solid, he looks fantastic - then I definitely think he has a shot – he has more of a shot than anyone else in the past. Mayweather does look unbeatable, but anything can happen in boxing.

“Many fighters have looked unbeatable in the past and all it takes is for that one man to be overlooked, and everybody is going to overlook Amir Khan. That’s when you get those occasional upsets."

If Khan pulls off the most improbable upset ever I will believe in him as of now though I am viewing this fight as a joke. I'd love to be surprised but I'm not even going to be optimistic on Khan's chances

Khan still needs to learn how to use his speed so that it's an advantage not a deficiency. If Khan throws 3 pity-pat punches with speed that is not effective then he is left out to dry in the pocket for a return blast from his opponent. Furthermore, while he is throwing that type of combinatio...

as we know, in the ring, anything can happen on any given night. but it usually doesnt. the Tyson/Douglas comparison doesnt hold water. the fact that both Tyson and Mayweather were/will be heavily favored is where the similarities end. in 1990 Tyson was a drug addicted fighter who didnt even want...

If the exact quote is : "Khan, More So Than Others, Can Beat Mayweather " then Haye is right. Khan has better chances of beating Mayweather than I, than the butcher next door, and than many other people, I am sure. The bottom line though is that Khan has done absolutely nothing to deserve a...

by that logic mr haye, khan doesn't even have a punchers chance. if khan wins it will be the biggest upset in boxing history...ever.
