    Apparently Khan vs Mayweather may be on. At least there'll be more punches thrown in this fight should it happen.

    Shame that Haymon's protecting them both. Want to see them both in more competitive fights.

    Will happily stay up to watch Khan/Broner but all talk, can't really see Khan cancelling for Broner as it's rare that happens.

    But Floyd a deserved winner - he was comfortable and Manny just could not adjust or do anything. I was disappointed about his lack of footwork or even attempting to try and unsettle Floyd in anyway. Half way stage, I think he just gave up. Not ideal that he's talking of injuries post-fight. If that was Floyd (and IIRC David Haye) got hammered for talking of injury post-fight. Should have avoided those comments.

    Mayweather giving up his belts suggest his last fight won't be about prestige so that rules out Brook (not that he had that big a chance tbf) so Khan has to decide whether he might be willing to take the September fight at short notice from a preparation POV with Ramadhan in June time. But see Floyd taking on Cotto possibly.

    I decided not to watch MayPac but it couldn't have been worse than Bellew-Cleverly. Cleverly gassed after about 6 rounds not that his work rate was that high and despite that Bellew didn't have the skill and/or power at 200lb to get rid of a guy who only just about had the energy to get hit in the face and was fighting with one arm the entire fight.
    I genuinely enjoyed Bellew and Cleverly more.

    Don't think Floyd-Cotto will happen, Haymon and Jay-Z have beef. Thurman and Danny Garcia seem most likely right now, unless Khan changes his tune about fighting in September.

    Pacquio is not in his prime. Personally speaking, this fight should have happened in 2009/10. Additionally, respect to mayweather for what he has done, but Pacquio was injured and not the Pacquio of old, and i think for an attacker like Pac-man you need to be younger and more in your prime.

    Not to take anything away from mayweather who would have made it harder for him even if he was in his prime by evading and running away with his great defense, but this fight should have happened when paquio was in his prime.
    I second that.

    Depends on whether Mayweather will be willing to push the date a couple months back so Khan can prepare for the fight. Will be a good fight imo.
    Thurman will easily take Garcia and Hearn's not helping Brook in any way by picking **** opponents for him. He's a quality fighter, put him in the deep end to prove he;s got what it takes to battle with the big boys.
    If Mayweather vs Khan doesn't happen then him vs Broner will be good. Khan will take him though.

    Floyd won't budge off his September date. I meant Thurman and Garcia are most likely for Floyd, not each other.

    Well Ramadan finishes halfway through July so if Mayweather and Khan are willing to fight at the end of September then it could happen. Would be the most interesting fight of it were to happen.

    Garcia is the only one worth watching now against Floyd. He has the one punch power to cause Floyd problems as Mosley did and the grit and heart to stay in the fight for the distance. He is not that fast and Floyd will control the fight but with Garcia's power there is always the chance of something happening. The reality is though, Floyd would still probably make light work of him and he's probably the best up and coming fighter there is. I honestly can't see Khan being anything of a problem for Floyd as some suggest. Khan does not have the boxing intelligence to stick to a game plan and if you put him in the ring with the greatest boxing technician currently out there who can adapt mid fight, he is going to get exposed big time.

    Mid-September it'll be, Mexican Independence Weekend.

    Floyd-Garcia would be an absolute stinker. Garcia's power is overrated, he just caught Khan flush. All you have to do is negate his left hook and look how easily Peterson did it. Would be a cake-walk for Floyd. Khan is Floyd's toughest fight at 147.

    Garcia won't offer much to be fair. Yeah he has that punch but Floyd will just stay on the outside and counter him. More chance of Garcia being floored as he'll come swinging and get hit with the counter. Not to mention that Floyd can take a punch, he has a solid chin.
    Khan might lack the intelligence and experience but his speed can cause anyone problems. If he avoids the mistake Pac made and try to outbox Floyd then like you mention he'll get exposed but if he hits him with short bursts then he could make the fight interesting. Floyd would win, but imo it would be a good fight.
    Khan was doing very well against Garcia before he got hot headed and ****** up his game plan.

    Just hope something amazing happens and the the fight does go on. Khan might be hated but he is a very good fighter and his speed is incredible. Defence has also improved with Hunter and that cost him in his previous fights.
