Mayweather: Khan Still has Garcia, Peterson Problems
by David P. Greisman
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.

Khan is going to throw such a b*tch fit when Mayweather chooses BrookComment by BrushMyHair! on 06-06-2015
Mayweather most likely choosing to fight Brook means Khan still has Garcia, Peterson, and Presscott problems.Comment by BrushMyHair! on 05-26-2015
Khan Still Has Garcia Problems. Khan also has Peterson and Prescott Problems too. Until Khan Fixes that, NO MAYWEATHER FIGHT.Comment by Lullaby on 10-12-2014
There you go, Mayweather is really scared to fight Anyone with Speed. He has made a career out of fighting Slow Plodders.Comment by BOXEO _ on 09-27-2014
