Mayweather Sr: Amir Khan Got Nothing on Floyd, Nothing

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Sr., father and trainer of WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs). doesn't see anything threatening about the style or fighting ability of British star Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs).

The two fighters were both featured on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather headlined the event, winning a tough decision over Marcos Maidana, and Khan was in the co-feature - dropping Luis Collazo three times for a unanimous verdict from the judges.

Mayweather is scheduled to return on September 13. Khan is unable to face Mayweather on that date, but hopes to fight him in May.

"[A fight with Khan] could go the distance but Floyd would put a real good whooping on him though, cause [Khan is] a boxer, he ain’t nobody that’s gonna swarm all over you — and the only reason the guy [Maidana] can do that is because he has that kind of weight to do that with Floyd, that’s the only reason he can put his whole bodyweight on Floyd like that," Mayweather Sr. told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"Can Amir Khan whoop Floyd? Is he more skilled than Floyd? Does he have more knowledge about the game? Is he smarter? None of that, he ain’t got nothing on Floyd, nothing."

[QUOTE=Mzembe;14588608]------------------------------------------------------------------ You are clearly delusional or were dropped on your head as a child. Why should Chino wear gloves that he has NEVER worn before? Because he knows he can't beat Floyd so they look for lighter gloves (kinda like…
