Lennox Lewis Tabs Mayweather To Beat Amir Khan

Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis was ringside at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. win a twelve round unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao to unify the WBC/WBA/WBO welterweight championships.

Mayweather plans to fight in September for what he claims to be the final fight of his pro career. One name circling the rounds is British superstar Amir Khan, who returns to action later this month against Chris Algieri in Brooklyn, New York. 

Lewis felt Khan would be an interesting next opponent for Mayweather, but backed the Mayweather's guile and experience to win the day should the fight happen.

"Khan is a fast boxer, he moves great on his feet. The only thing Khan doesn't have is a lot of experience and I feel that may hold him back," Lewis told the Sportsweek programme.

Asked if he thought Mayweather would edge it against Khan, Lewis said: "Yes I do."

Either Thurman or Khan IMO. You guyz who say Khan doesn't deserve it have always hated him anyway. So why should anyone care what you say? I didn't like the guy much til he lost to Garcia. Then I saw…

Of course Mayweather wins but my biggest issue is how much of a waste this fight is, I'd rather he face Thurman. That's a serious challenge at this stage.

Amir Khan is only interested in the biggest pay day of his career. He knows that he can't beat Mayweather. He hasn't done enough to deserve the fight and I hope he doesn't get it.
