McCrory Gives Khan a Good Shot With Mayweather Jr.

Sky Sports boxing expert Glenn McCrory is giving former champion Amir Khan a good shot to upset Floyd Mayweather Jr. - if the pair collide on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Khan is the rumored opponent for Mayweather's next fight. Khan pulled away from a planned fight with IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander to keep himself open for the opportunity against Mayweather.

McCrory told "I sat next to Amir Khan for the Carl Froch-George Groves match and he seemed quietly confident that he was going to get Mayweather next. It's not official and he was keen to stress that no deal had been done, but I've got a feeling now that's the way things are headed.

"It could be that that's what Amir's put his career on hold for. He didn't take that fight with Devon Alexander and presumably the reason why he chose to miss out on that big pay day is because he thinks the possibility of Mayweather is pretty solid."

"Khan is the one man who could actually worry Mayweather because he's the one man who's faster than Mayweather. Mayweather isn't the kind of hunt-you-down lethal finisher either, so Khan definitely has a chance. It's very hard to say he'd beat him, but he will give him problems because he's got speed.

"The other thing is that Khan's usual weakness of getting hit won't be as much of a problem because Mayweather is more of a counter-puncher. Mayweather showed against Saul Alvarez that he can be tough and can push big men back, but he couldn't finish him. That would give Khan hope that he could be the busier man and maybe nick a decision. He's got the style to do it."

[QUOTE=Mzembe]This is coming from a guy who works for Sky Sports which is a British organization and he is British just like Khan. Big freakin' surprise. And the reason he gives is that Khan is very confident. 45 other fighters were "very" confident of beating Floyd. Or is Khan the only excepti...

Plain silly talk....Khan should only be discussed at euro level and then only against certain opponents...He's the most over rated and over hyped one of all to come out of the uk!

Amir khan??? Really?

[QUOTE=FrankieBruno]and Floyd would beat them easier than Khan Styles make fights, I rather see Khan knocked out trying than see Garcia or Lucas or Devon not being able to land a single punch and some boring UD Khan has one advantage those others have ZERO advantages You can make argu...
