Mayweather Hints He'll Face Khan or Maidana on May 3

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) has yet to finalize an opponent for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. While Mayweather has been spending some time poking fun at Pacquiao, he also took aim at the two most likely options for his May return.

Former 140-pound champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) has been mentioned as the frontrunner for several months. Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) has now emerged as a realistic candidate after winning a very impressive twelve round decision over Adrien Broner to capture the WBA welterweight crown earlier this month.

Regarding Maidana, Mayweather posted the following on the social networks:

Can I please order a one-piece with a biscuit? No sides.

And Mayweather also sent a widespread social network message to Khan, which appeared to be a little more direct.

Just imagine what Amir "Con Artist" will get if his name gets picked in the Mayweather sweepstakes.

If any other fighter in the world from 140-147 fought Maidana next, it'd be considered a solid/good fight. But not for Floyd. Maidana would be better than Guerrero or Ortiz IMO, and both of those were solid fights for Mayweather.…

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;14081557]How are you not discrediting Maidana? You're saying fighting him is a cherry pick. That is discrediting him. In a literal sense, that is discrediting him. I know you didn't actually say that Thurman beat Floyd level opponents my point…

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;14081063]Never said that. And I'm discrediting Maidana because he's a cherrypick he's not the guy cherrypicking. And yes, I said Thurman is a good fight for Floyd. I never said however he beat Floyd level opponents like you claimed, that…
