Undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. took to Twitter last February 2 stating his rationale to allow his enthusiasts pick who he will combat this may three on the MGM Grand area in Las Vegas.
And yes, you guessed it. The names Mayweather threw have been strong pugilists in their own right, however, would not have the zing and the zap that would doubtlessly make an extra appealing fight.
“I’m going to permit the fanatics vote. tell me who I need to combat next. Khan or Maidana?” Mayweather asked.
Khan, 27, definitely has a greater following than Maidana however you can argue approximately the latter being extra deserving, having won four straight fights (with three finishes) towards the top-tier opposition. He absolutely demolished the heavily-favored Adrien Broner in a December 2013 bout and wrestled the WBA Welterweight title far from the previously undefeated 24-12 months-antique.
Although it becomes crystal clear who the fans desired “cash” to fight next, Manny Pacquiao has already set a date with Timothy Bradley in a rematch this April 12. every other welterweight standout Danny Garcia will fight March 15th in Puerto Rico. And we all know how Floyd Mayweather feels about preventing tons faster and larger guys.
The phrase has it that Khan is the frontrunner for a clash with the world’s pinnacle pound-for-pound boxer however in contrast to his closing fight with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, Mayweather and his crew can have a difficult time promoting this one to maximum pundits.
Either Khan or Maidana is physically smaller than Mayweather and none has the style that can theoretically weigh down the Michigan local for the maximum part. The Canelo vs Golovkin Live Stream changed into a virtual beginner at 147 and the 30-year-antique Maidana has misplaced 3 international championship bouts earlier than dominating Broner.
Freddie Roach, who’s each Pacquiao’s and Khan’s instructor, thinks Khan can surprise quite a few human beings along with his pace and only has to fight smart towards the wily Mayweather.
“I’ve constantly said Amir has the right style to overcome Floyd if he fights effectively and does not live within the pocket too lengthy,” Roach become quoted as saying. “I always idea he may want to beat him with his velocity.
“I suppose he is faster than Mayweather and that’s what it takes to overcome him. Floyd would possibly have his arms complete at the night.”
But sure, we understand Roach is a touch biased; Khan’s his fighter in spite of everything.
Enthusiasts worldwide have reacted on Mayweather’s social media poll and to date, the returns haven’t been excellent. most fans clamor for a Pacquiao combat but the majority who replied the query straight up root for Khan.
However virtually, we all realize how this will turn out. unless it is Pacquiao up there in the squared circle with “Pretty Boy” Floyd, it’s a whole waste of time.
