Mayweather: If Khan Can Impress Me, He May Be Next

By Rick Reeno

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. said Amir Khan's last performance, where he got knocked down and struggled to win a decision over Julio Diaz last April, was part of the reason he passed on the British star and selected WBA beltholder Marcos Maidana as the opponent of choice for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The other reason was Maidana's much stronger run, which includes a dominating win over previously undefeated Adrien Broner last December.

Mayweather has already advised Khan to face Broner - and if Khan wins in impressive fashion he might become the opponent for Mayweather's next fight in September.

Golden Boy's CEO Richard Schaefer has already told BoxingScene.com that Broner-Khan is unlikely to happen in the immediate future, but Schaefer is currently locking down a credible welterweight to face Khan in the coming months.

"You look at Maidana and he's 4-0 with 3 knockouts. And [Khan] is 2-2 and the guy that he did fight [and beat in Julio Diaz], we wasn't really impressed with that. Not taking anything away from Diaz, but we wasn't really impressed with that. [Khan] is still on the table, not for this fight. You seen what I said on my Instagram and my Twitter and my Facebook. If he can impress me with something, he may be the next guy," Mayweather said.

Mayweather can't knock a firefly out.
