As the world awaits the next opponent for Floyd Mayweather, all speculation is on the possibility of Amir Khan being chosen.Even though Bernard Hopkins has tried to steal the next Mayweather fight,clearer heads should prevail and nix that nonsense fight.So get used to listening to the boxing world whine,kick and cry until next May when they hit the PPV anyway to order Floyd Mayweather vs Amir Khan.
No one is saying Amir Khan is the only opponent that is an option for Mayweather’s next opponent.But when your options are Amir Khan,Danny Garcia and a long list of boxers who have roadblocks a mile high in front of them preventing a matchup,Mayweather has little choice but to choose Khan.Danny Garcia would be an OK fight but he is just becoming popular among the casual boxing fans.A fight between Garcia and Mayweather would resemble Robert Guerrero vs Mayweather.A slower,younger opponent getting beat over twelve rounds and bringing in low PPV numbers.They won’t choose Danny until maybe next year if Garcia has another two big names on his resume.Forget Manny Pacquiao as long as he is with Bob Arum.Not even worth discussing that fight any more.Sergio Martinez is too big for Mayweather and won’t go down in weight far enough to lure Mayweather into a catch weight agreement.Canelo Alvarez would have been an easy option for a rematch except he was picked apart by Mayweather and nothing would change if they met again.As time goes on, Canelo vs Mayweather will go down as one of the most disappointing fights ever.Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez seem like longshots considering they aren’t even in the discussion and they fight on HBO.One fighter that could give Mayweather alot of problems is Timothy Bradley but he sold off any chance of a Mayweather fight by signing with Top Rank so he could get a Manny Pacquiao showdown.Bradley would for sure have gotten a Mayweather fight by now had he signed with Golden Boy.Adrien Broner’s luster has worn off since Paulie Malignaggi exposed him as being a cheap imitation of Mayweather last June.Interest in a Mayweather vs Broner fight is gone.Malignaggi would be a good option for Mayweather but he would have to beat Judah and grab a title to get a chance at Mayweather.So right now as we speak,who is ready to face Mayweather next May? The answer is Amir Khan.
Khan brings three things to the table that make him a top pick for Mayweather.First,he has a huge,loyal fan base that will travel to Las Vegas if it’s held there and they will flood the PPV buys from overseas.Second,Khan has a different style to throw at Floyd because fans are tired of watching Mayweather play matador to slower,stronger fighters like Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez.Khan’s speed and footwork would add a different element to a Mayweather fight.Third,Khan offers the possibility of Mayweather finally fighting at Wembley Stadium which he has expressed interest in for a while now.Mayweather vs Khan in England at Wembley stadium would be a spectacle that everyone would tune in to see regardless if they thought Khan had a chance of winning.Khan would sell the most tickets and the most PPV’S out of the available options.

Now that the smoke has cleared and Floyd Mayweather sits even higher atop the pound for pound mountain after his win over Canelo,speculation has already started over Mayweather’s next opponent.There are a few names that have surfaced as likely next opponents with two being the most obvious.Danny Garcia is a top option after his impressive win over Lucas Matthysse.The other is the winner of Devon Alexander vs Amir Khan.Out of the three I believe Amir Khan is not only the toughest opponent for Mayweather but the opponent that will bring the biggest fanbase and money.Garcia is coming into his own but he still is not a household name and his slow attack is tailor made for Mayweather.This combination will draw little interest from the casual fan who wants to see Mayweather tested hard.Plus let’s not forget that the case can be made that Danny Garcia is far from ready to face Mayweather.Devon Alexander is an even harder sell.While I think Alexander has the one tool needed to test Mayweather which is speed, he too has a small fan base outside of St. Louis.Alexander is a better matchup for Mayweather because it would be a high speed fight but it wouldn’t sell a lick on PPV except for the Mayweather fans and haters that will buy it anyway.”The One” will put up huge PPV numbers when it’s all said and done with.And coming off a disapointing PPV number for Mayweather vs Guerrero last May,you can bet Golden Boy and Mayweather don’t want to return to those low numbers so soon after this huge Canelo fight.That leaves the best option in terms of audience,PPV sales and competitiveness as being Amir Khan.
While alot of fans will scoff at the idea of Khan vs Mayweather,once you look at the options and the fight itself, it looks like a good idea.Fans are finally realizing that putting a slower,hard punching fighter in with Mayweather is nothing more than a recipe for an easy Mayweather win by decision.His fights against Victor Ortiz,Shane Mosley,Canelo,Miguel Cotto and Ricky Hatton are all strikingly similar.Mayweather outlands his opponent with the jab and makes his opponent miss all night.His angles,faints and speed are too much for these type of fighters.In his bouts with Juan Manuel Marquez and Robert Guerrero the mismatch was more evident as these fighters had even less power but they ended with the same result.Mayweather dominance.Amir Khan would be the fastest opponent Mayweather has ever faced.Khan will at least have a chance at beating Mayweather to the punch.Khan also has fast footwork which will help him avoid the Mayweather jab attack.Yes Khan has had chin issues but let’s be honest,Mayweather hasn’t knocked anyone out since Ricky Hatton.And Hatton was recklessly running into those knockouts in comical fashion.It would be interesting to see how Mayweather would deal with Khan’s speed especially if Khan is out landing him.Throw into the equation that whether it be in Las Vegas or England,Khan brings a massive fanbase that are willing to travel to see him like they did for Ricky Hatton.If Mayweather can ever be talked into fighting at Wembley Stadium then we are talking bigger than big.It would be a huge event.Mayweather has said in the past that he wants to fight in England someday.This is his best opportunity.The only other option in the foreseeable future is Kell Brook and we haven’t seen enough of him to even know how good he is yet.
This fight will happen sooner than later.With Richard Schaefer talking about wanting to put this fight together in England and Mayweather Sr. giving it the thumbs up it seems like it’s just a matter of time.As long as Khan beats Alexander in December, we will likely see Mayweather facing Khan either in May or September 2014.Be sure to check out our main site TEAM LEFTJAB at www.leftjaballnightboxing.com where you will see all the latest from The Team LeftJab United Radio Network!
