Earlier this week an article ran on in which Amir Khan's father and manager Shah said that he was 90% certain his December showdown against IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander will take place in the Middle East with Dubai the leading candidate to host the event.

"We discussed Dubai and put it on the table as my preferred option to Devon. He wasn't sure at first and suggested we fight in Vegas. But negotiations are going on right now. My dad and Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy are talking to the right people in Dubai," said Amir Khan to The Sun.

Alexander's trainer and manager Kevin Cunningham denied that a deal was eminent to bring the fight to the Middle East and made it clear that Khan won't dictate the terms of the fight.

"Khan don't run sh*t, We don't have a deal to fight Khan and we don't have any plans on going to Dubai," Cunningham told

Schaefer had previously mentioned December 7th as the likely date for the fight to take place should a deal come to fruition.

You can't win a fight like that, especially since Peterson was doing such a good job at cutting the ring down. I definitely think it was a close fight though, Kahn as i...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Most scored the PEDerson fight for Khan. Khan beat the guy when he was on drugs. But then again, you thought Diaz beat Khan so Im not exactly going to take your opinion seriously. Yeah sure bro, Khan vs Mayweather is out the window but Bradley-Alexander II is on the hori...

[QUOTE=slicksouthpaw16]No way Floyd fights Kahn after losing two fights in a row (the Alexander loss will be the 3rd) so you can go ahead and throw that one out the window. The possibility of that fight ever happening ended when Peterson chased and man handled Kahn for 12 rounds.[/QUOTE] Most ...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Anyone with any kind of common sense would realise that was a ploy. Mayweather will be hoping for a Khan win over Alexander.[/QUOTE] No way Floyd fights Kahn after losing two fights in a row (the Alexander loss will be the 3rd) so you can go ahead and throw that one ...
