J. Mayweather: Khan Not Liked, Does Not Deserve Floyd!

By Edward Chaykovsky

The probable fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Amir Khan is not looking so probable anymore. Due to the backlash of Khan being inactive since last June and going life and death with former champion Julio Diaz, fans have been mounting an internet movement to get WBA champion Marcos Maidana in position to face Mayweather on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Trainer Jeff Mayweather, the uncle of Floyd, told boxing scribe David Mayo that Khan's name has a lot of negativity associated with it. He feels the boxer is not liked in the United States, and the UK, and doesn't deserve the lucrative opportunity of a Mayweather fight. While Maidana, an all-action fighter, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in 2013, when he scored two knockdowns to decision Floyd Mayweather's close friend, Adrien Broner.

"Originally, they were thinking Khan. But with so much negative feedback, with the blogs and various things -- it seemed like every time you saw Amir Khan's name attached to it, it said he had no chance. I think if they go based on titles, and who brings something to the table, it's Maidana.  I don't think that many people want to see Floyd fight Amir Khan," Jeff told Mayo.

Amir Khan doesn't have a title and he hasn't done anything to deserve a shot," Jeff Mayweather said.  "People want to see Floyd against the guy who beat Adrien Broner.  They want to compare the imitator against the genuine one.  Realistically, that's what [Broner] is, an imitator of the legitmate thing. Khan isn't like Ricky Hatton. Most people don't even like him there."

[QUOTE=NachoMan;14208537]Khan is nowhere near the most deserving guy to get a shot a Mayweather, but, in my view, he is potentially the most dangerous guy out there for Floyd at 147 and below. Everybody loves Maidana (me too), but not…

[QUOTE=Copyright;14207976]I will say it again Maindana is getting far to much credit for beating Broner and Khan far to little for beating Diaz, People also forget that Diaz fought Porter before long and fought to a draw which many had…
