Comments Thread For: Khan Back in Familiar Pre-Mayweather Holding Pattern
By Lyle Fitzsimmons - Amir Khan has been here before.
While preparing to meet former welterweight title claimant Luis Collazo a year ago in Las Vegas, he spent much of his pre-fight media time answering questions about Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Lest anyone forget, it was Khan who “won” a Mayweather-orchestrated fan poll to determine “Money’s” May 2014 opponent, but he was ultimately snubbed in favor of Argentine roughneck Marcos Maidana. And when the prevailing perception out of that main event was that “Chino” had done enough to warrant a second shot – the Englishman with Pakistani roots was forced to wait again.
Mayweather immediately began calling Khan’s name after vanquishing Maidana for the second time, but the surprise agreement with generational rival Manny Pacquiao set the match aside once again.
Fast-forward to spring 2015 and the storyline remains similar.
Mayweather is biding his time before going public with his choice for what could be a career swan song in September, and Khan can take a giant step toward securing that match with a victory against another former world champion – albeit at 140 pounds, not 147 – when he meets Chris Algieri on Friday night.

I understand he's under a lot of pressure, he's facing the very real likelihood that he is not guaranteed a match with Mayweather, a huge opportunity both in terms of legacy and $ that he's been waiting years for. That being said, he's really been sounding a little flip floppy lately. He should seriously consider investing in a full time publicist/PR kind of person to avoid looking even sillier.

What a freakin sorry azz sycophant Khan is ...
Nobody outside of his delusional fans even care one way or another, what he's doing or who he's fighting.
So what does this lousy sycophant do, he constantly begs and tries to keep his name attached to the P4P best - What a low-life scummy move.
Thurman calls out this ***** ...... crickets
Brook calls out this ***** ...... crickets again, Khan even got his daddy to complain about Brook picking on his son.
All the upper tier WW's are salivating to KO Khan, and instead of taking on all comers, Khan tucks his tail between his legs and fights Algeri .... What a freakin loser. No amount of money can erase his cowardice among his peers.
