Khan: Mayweather Not The Same, He's a Cherry Picker!

British fighter Amir Khan has fired off some shots at Floyd Mayweather Jr., claiming the unbeaten pound-for-pound king is a cherry picker who picks easier opponents to look impressive. Mayweather is scheduled to return on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Khan, along with Marcos Maidana, are the two frontrunners to fight him.

Khan was the frontrunner for several months to get the fight, but now Maidana, who Khan defeated several years ago, is being pushed more and more as the likely candidate.

“People say I have no chance and I don’t deserve to be in the ring with Floyd,” Khan told The National. “Why not? Floyd is not the same fighter as he was three or four years ago. That’s why he picks slow fighters, because he doesn’t have the same movement as he used to."

“If you look at his last three or four fights … all of them are slow, with no footwork, one-dimensional fighters. He cherry picks them, to make himself look good. I’m fast. I’m quick. I have an awkward footwork. Styles make fights, and I will show him style.”

[QUOTE=4Corners]Funny thing is.....HE'S THE CHERRY PICK, not Maidana. Maidana is a legit fight right now.[/QUOTE] :lol1: Trust Mayweather's loyal NSB fanboy 4Corners second in line after Larry to try and convince people that Maidana isn't a cherry pick. Just because Khan would have been ...

[QUOTE=TonitosWay]So now FMJ fans are giving Khan hell when they just were pleading the case that he was the perfect/best option for Floyd a couple of months ago? You see why your opinions are considered a joke?[/QUOTE] not a FMJ fan but a fan of boxing Khan was the better cherry pick becau...
