By Edward Chaykovsky

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) is scheduled to return on May 3rd , on Showtime Pay-Per-View, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. No opponent has been named, but British superstar Amir Khan is regarded as the frontrunner.

Mayweather is going to allow the fans to decide. He posted the following message on his official social network channels.

"I'm going to let the fans vote. Tell me who I should fight next. Khan or Maidana?"

Marcos Maidana, the WBA's welterweight champion, was initially a frontrunner to face Mayweather, but then Adrien Broner exercised an immediate rematch clause to force a return bout with the Argentine hitter. Maidana shocked Broner in December to win a twelve round decision. Their rematch has been pushed back, as Maidana does not have enough training time to meet him in April, and that postponement might open up the door to face Mayweather in May.

Even with his recent message, most believe Khan is going to lock in the opportunity.

[QUOTE=ROSS CALIFORNIA]Pacquiao is fighting Bradly. GET OFF THE PACQUIOA ARGUMENT ALREADY!!! lol I'd rather see Broner rematch Maidana. Khan is not worthy, but realistically there's not much more to choose from. He only went up to fight Canelo, because that was a huge fight. GGG is NOT a huge mon...

[QUOTE=shenmue]All good points, especially about RG not really having a huge fan base. I don't Lara even holds a proper title *and yes i know titles are crap these days* but i just don't think that apart from us fans who watch pretty much everything that Lara is that well known and would create t...
