Team Alexander on Khan "Who cares what he wants?"

Yesterday an article ran on BoxingScene.com where former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan said that he would like to face either Devon Alexander, Andre Berto or Robert Guerrero in December. Khan hopes that a win over either former champion will lead him to a shot against Floyd Mayweather in 2015.

"For December we're looking at a few names, the likes of Alexander, Guerrero. Berto has also been mentioned but we train together, so that would be quite hard. I like Berto, he's a good friend of mine. But I'm one of those guys - I'll never say 'no' to a fight. I'll take whoever they decide to put me against," Khan told The Daily Telegraph.

"A fight in the first week or second week of December would be ideal. I'd like it to be in England, but there's a lot of talk that it may be in Dubai. I'm just going to let Al Haymon [Khan's adviser] and the team, Golden Boy, give me a few options and I'll take it from there."

Khan and Alexander were supposed to face each other last December at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY. Khan, believing he had a May fight against Mayweather secured, opted to bypass the fight and go straight to Mayweather. Khan's plans fell through when Mayweather opted to face Marcos Maidana instead.

When Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham heard the news that Khan was looking to possibly face his fighter again, Cunningham said that Khan already had his chance and that Khan doesn't call the shots.

"Khan has already ducked Devon once so who cares what he wants," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=sicko]I don't blame them for telling Khan to basically...FUK OFF! The guy is a fukin opportunist he is so full of it. He could have fought Alexander and still be ready for Mayweather in May so that excuse is a AWFUL ONE for not taking the Alexander fight. Just like if Kell Brook wins over...

[QUOTE=mathed]They paid him off. Plain as day Collazo was there for the check. After the fight: "I don't know man, I just didn't have it tonight. I knew what I wanted to do in my head but my body just wouldn't respond" Sure Collazo, don't worry we believe you. :sad:[/QUOTE] You can't be...

[QUOTE=uniquehump]I have to disagree with Team Alexander on this one. Didn't they turn down a fight with someone because Floyd hinted that he was fighting Devon next?[/QUOTE] Alexander pulled out of the Kell Brook fight straight after Floyd named him on Twitter but that has been swept under th...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Oh for real? Khan, a Pakistani Brit couldn't sell more tickets in America than Alexander could sell in his home town? Who'd have thought? :pat:[/QUOTE] That really doesn't matter because Khan was the one wgo pulled out of a fight with Alexander. D Alexander has other op...
