Amir Khan (31-3, 19 Kos) is set to face the red haired monster Saul “Canelo” Alvarez this May 7th for the WBC Middleweight Championship. If successful, ‘The King’ is looking to potentially set himself up for the biggest ‘money’ fights of his career.
A win over the Mexican will solidify his legacy and claim to glory, aligning his stars to face one of the three greats of today’s boxing world.
Victory over the Saul Alvarez entails an eventual title defense. Gennadin Golovkin has proven to be a hammer of a force in the division with an untainted record and a 90% knock-out percentage, the highest in the middle-weight class. Amir Khan’s precision and sniper style of boxing can be a good counter to the Kazakh’s hard hitting, counter-punching style. But fair warning to Khan – even Canelo refused to step in with the destroyer Gennadin.

A huge name and living legend of the sport that Khan has been interested in fighting for a long time. With a win over Canelo, Pacman would be ‘forced’ to fight ‘The King’, claiming the Filipino boxing champ has been avoiding him, ducking and running away. Is the Brit ready for the intense south-paw KO artist who fought in the most highest rated PPV of all time? Or will Pacman’s bone-crunching power render him flat to the canvas?
Floyd Mayweather Jr:-
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is retired, with an untainted, perfect record of 49 – 0. Will the self-proclaimed greatest of all time step up to Amir Khan’s repeated call outs for a 50th? If young Brit scores a win over ‘Canelo’, he’s undeniably ready to take a shot at the greatest defensive boxer of all time, seeing that Floyd dismantled the Mexican in their own bout with ease. Chances are Floyd may not even bother with coming out of retirement, but if there’s anything that drives Mayweather – it’s money. If the numbers are right, there’s no reason why Mayweather wouldn’t want to make a comeback for it.
