Team Alexander: We Deserve Mayweather, Not Khan!

Shortly after Floyd Mayweather Jr's dominating victory over Canelo Alvarez, Floyd's father and co-trainer told BoxingScene.com that he would like to see his son face former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan in his next fight.

When I told the elder Mayweather that all signs point towards Khan facing Devon Alexander in December, he suggested that Khan should bypass that fight and wait for the more lucrative fight against his son.

"Which fight brings more money? I think Khan should just fight Floyd. It makes more sense," Mayweather Sr. stated.

Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham has also heard that Khan may also be thinking of going straight to a showdown against the pound for pound king. Cunningham doesn't think Khan has done enough to have earned a shot at Floyd and feels that a fight between Alexander and Khan is needed to produce a worthy opponent for Mayweather.

"Devon's planning to make a huge statement against Khan. Amir wants to go straight to Floyd, but what has this clown done to deserve a shot at Floyd?

"Khan should appreciate the fact that Devon's giving him a shot. There are several other fighters at welterweight that we could give a shot to. Devon's done more to deserve a shot at Floyd than Khan anyway. The winner of Alexander/Khan should unify with Floyd in May," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.
