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

By Edward Chaykovsky

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.”
