It?s a question that I believe has some substance.

Much has been made of Amir Khan?s desire to mix it with Floyd Mayweather Junior next May. The Bolton fighter sees it as his dream fight and reckons he has the tools to trouble the boxer who many believe is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

However much has been made about Khan?s recent inactivity with many pundits perceiving that Khan, in the past twelve months has done little or nothing to deserve such a huge fight.

Also, many of his supporters are a little miffed about the proposed fight against Alexander Devon being side-stepped to pave the way for a fight with Mayweather.

But, it could all be of no consequence whatsoever following Manny Pacquiao?s convincing win over Brandon Rios in the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time).

Pacquiao, having had something of a torrid time in the ring ahead of this fight, won convincingly against a challenger who had only one defeat on his record.

After such a convincing win there are calls, once again, for Pacquiao to get in the ring with Mayweather, something that has been muted several times in the past.

But this time, with the promoters looking around for a creditable opponent for Mayweather, there?s something in the air that infers both fighters could be up for this one, with each fighter knowing that the Boxing version of immortality awaits the winner.

And as for Amir, just perhaps he?ll be left pondering over where the dream all went wrong!

 

One Reply to “Could Amir Khan be the Fall Guy?”

  • sadly for Amir, he has never quite reached the levels we hoped he would. Personally as great a chance it would have been for him to fight Mayweather, I really couldn’t see him being in the same class, so money aside, would it have been wise for him to make the fight
