J. Mayweather: Pakistani on Cinco De Mayo is Tough Sell

Trainer Jeff Mayweather, the uncle of pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., says a potential fight with Amir Khan will be a tough sell for Cinco De Mayo weekend, May 3rd, unless the card is stacked with Latino fighters or high quality fights. Khan, a British star with Pakistani roots, is the frontrunner to face Mayweather in a Showtime Pay-Per-View headliner from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Amir Khan is a good choice because he has a little following, so that helps the pay-per-view sales, but it's kind of tough to do that [fight] with a Pakistani on Cinco De Mayo. In order to do that [fight], you are going to have to put Latino fighters on there as well, or you are going to have to stack the card," Jeff Mayweather told proboxinginsider.com.

[QUOTE=keyz3r0]Thought Mayweather was so confident about making millions on PPV all by himself... Guess that's not true... And it seems now the reason for delaying the announcement of mayweather vs. (nobody cares).. is that they are trying to find the best way to stack the undercards so that it c...

Khan is a pioneer to his ppl. Add on the indigenous British ppl. Even if ppl in UK wanna see Khan get KOed they will still buy it. A better fanbase than Marcos Maidana if anything. Like ive said about 1 million followers on fb and 1 mil on Twitter even if it overlaps as one maybe following on bot...
