De La Hoya: Now I Know Why Floyd Don't Want Khan!

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is now convinced that WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs) was avoiding a possible showdown with British star Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) - because Khan has very fast hands, accurate combinations and technical advantages.

On Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Khan dominated former two-division world champion Devon Alexander over twelve rounds of action.

De La Hoya is going to make a big push for a Mayweather-Khan collision in the first half of 2015.

"Let me just say this. You have Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather and now you have Amir Khan [as the three best fighters in the division]. I do have to admit that right now Amir Khan is faster than Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. He looked explosive, determined and he was in the zone. It was an incredible performance. Now I know why Floyd Mayweather doesn't want to fight Amir Khan. Now I know why. I wouldn't fight Amir. I wouldn't fight Amir Khan either," De La Hoya said.
