Khan's Trainer: Possibility of Mayweather is Quite High

By Edward Chaykovsky

Virgil Hunter, the trainer of British star Amir Khan, feels there is a high possibility that his boxer will get the opportunity to face WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. For several weeks Khan has been rumored to be the frontrunner opponent to face Mayweather on the May date. To focus on landing Mayweather, Khan withdrew from a scheduled fight with IBF champion Devon Alexander. Khan has been talking for weeks about using his speed to give Mayweather fits.

 “I think logic says that the possibility of the two fighting each other is quite high, so that would be something that I know that he’s looking forward to. And, of course, I would be looking forward to it also,” Hunter told Gulf News.

“I think it’s definitely a fight that makes sense and a fight that the people will be talking about. I’ve heard that Floyd wants to come to the UK. I don’t see any fighter on the horizon wanting to make the UK fight more exciting or more profitable and more intriguing to the world than with Amir, so that’s something that I hope could happen as it would be a big moment in his career.”

[QUOTE=boxingbrain28;14004280]Man if this fight is announced people claiming this fight won't sell would be surprised. When you see the all access for this fight, it will sell itself. Floyd will be Floyd but Khan will be obnoxious, and people will…
