Khan: I Really Thought I Had The Mayweather Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

Amir Khan says he was convinced that a fight with WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. was a done deal. Khan even withdrew from a planned December fight with then IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander. Khan's dream came crashing down on Monday, when Mayweather announced that he was fighting WBA champion Marcos Maidana in a unification encounter on May 3rd from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I really thought I had the fight. I pulled out from the Alexander fight because I was advised to have my full attention on the Mayweather fight. Contracts were signed in December. I sent the contracts back to Golden Boy and Floyd's team. We thought we would announce the fight at the end of December or January. I got desperate because were now in February and I was getting no answer back from Floyd Mayweather or his team. I put numerous calls out to [Golden Boy CEO] Richard Schaefer and they were trying to do their best to see what was going on. Floyd likes to be in control and doesn't like anybody telling him what to do," Khan told Sky Sports.

This is why he'll probably lose his next fight ,shame on this guy putting all his hopes on this fight and it didn't happen. HE still would have loss badly.
