Carl Froch: Khan Not Good Enough To Beat Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former world champion Carl Froch and Amir Khan has traded their share of words in the past. But Froch says he's not trying to take a dig at Khan by saying the Bolton fighter is not capable of beating WBC/WBO/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Khan is under serious consideration to face Mayweather on September 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Froch, who is still undecided on his own professional future, gives Khan absolutely no shot to win - and feels confident about that position when reviewing Khan's record.

“I don’t think he’s good enough,” said Froch to The Mirror. “I don’t think there’s anybody out there who is. That’s no disrespect to Amir Khan; but when he steps up, he gets beaten. People think I’m having a go at him, but I’m not."

“You can’t put somebody like Khan, who’s been beat by three/four people up against Mayweather. He got knocked out by Prescott and Garcia, and Peterson had him down. If you’re losing to that level [of fighter], you can’t put him up against Floyd Mayweather and expect him to win. But a fight is a fight. It’s interesting, but I don’t think he will stand a chance.”

Froch is a redneck *******

I'm reading a lot of childish comments dissing Froch, but he seems to be making a very vaild point. Khan has looked extremely average against lesser men and let all of his defeats go unanswered. How can anybody believe he…

It's a joke that people think speed alone is enough to beat Floyd. If Algieri could have his moments against Khan, what do you think Floyd will do?
