Back before Floyd Mayweather fought Marcos Maidana this past May, there had been a poll up on his website asking fans who they’d like to see him face — Maidana or Amir Khan.

Mayweather chose Maidana, won a decision and is fighting him again in a rematch this September. The pound-for-pound king spoke with a small group of reporters on July 14, and one reporter asked Mayweather would be facing Khan this fall instead had it not been for Khan saying he couldn’t fight this September due to the fasting done for the holiday of Ramadan for several weeks during which a training camp would’ve been held.

“As of right now, like I said before, everyone is shooting for Floyd Mayweather. Only thing I can do is be focused on the guy that’s in front of me. Amir Khan, I mean, he still got Danny Garcia problems. He still, the little kid from here [Lamont Peterson], he still got problems with that guy,” Mayweather said, referencing Khan’s recent losses to those 140-pound fighters. “So like I said before, everybody is trying to hit the lotto and fight Floyd Mayweather. That’s all it is.”

Mayweather was asked if he was saying that Khan hasn’t proven himself yet to earn a fight.

Mayweather put his hands up.

“I don’t know,” he said.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]It does because he hasn't done it since 2008 for a reason. He's fighting at a higher level now so you need 12 week training camps plus time to recover after fasting.[/QUOTE] I get you. It's just unfortunate that between Ramadan and Mayweather's excuses, Khan may never fa...

[QUOTE=chaos]Ramadan isn't the same month every year.[/QUOTE] Yes but he fought during Ramadan in 2008, which ran the entire month of September. He also fought during Ramadan in 2007. My point is that he has chosen to fight during the period before, splitting a win and a loss.

More Mayweather excuses.

And Maidana Could Have Khan Problems, Alexander Problems; What's The Difference
comment by TLC8, on 07-17-2014
Floyd has a ducking problem. He says who Khan has problems to fix with, who Pacquiao has problems with, could have made the same statement of Maidana. Floyd always has a story, he pretends to be intelligent, literate, educated, which he's not. He's scared to death to lose to Manny Pacquiao, perio...
