R. Mayweather: If No Pacquiao, Amir Khan is Good Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

Roger Mayweather, uncle and trainer of WBC/WBO/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., would like to see his nephew have a rematch with Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao, who is rehabbing a shoulder injury stemming from his decision loss to Mayweather on May 2nd, will be out until 2016.

If Mayweather is going to move forward with his plan to fight on September 12th, he needs a dance partner and Amir Khan has once again emerged as a likely candidate to get the fight. Khan must first defeat Chris Algieri on May 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Roger likes the idea of facing off with Khan, who says Ramadan will not prevent him from facing Mayweather in the fall. 

"I guess Floyd’s gonna have to go somewhere else [with Pacquiao out until 2016]. I don’t know who he’s gonna fight, but he’s going to have to fight somebody," Roger told On The Ropes Boxing Radio . "He can fight Amir Khan. That’s a fight for him, I can’t say no [to that fight]."

"I think it’s a decent fight with him and Amir Khan, but like I said, that’s a fight for him if he’s not going to fight Pacquiao again. He needs to turn to somebody like Amir Khan, and that will make a good show."
