    This.

    Khan should avoid Mayweather for the meantime and focus on Maidana instead.

    hahaha Khan would have to lose like 10 fights in a row and drop about 50 pounds before Mayweather would even CONSIDER fighting him, Floyd would prefer to have you either be way too old, way too small, or way too overmatched for him to take the fight.

    I'll take Khan's educated jab over Bradley's flashiness any day. I think that jab also presents some problems for Floyd though I would agree that Floyd would likely overcome those problems.

    Why should anybody avoid Mayweather?

    a) he represents the biggest payday
    b) he represents the biggest boost to your career should you pull it off.
    c) there is very little shame in a loss to Floyd. Look at JMM. He fought very cowardly vs. Floyd, but it did not have an effect on his marketability. He is about as marketable now as he was before he fought Floyd.

    It's win win.. DLH's jab gave Floyd some trouble before he stopped throwing it. Khans jab is as good or better than DLH's. If his chin holds up, he represents a serious challenge to floyd.

    khan is too young, too fast and too big for mayweather too fight him.

    he doesnt fit mayweathers typical opponents. OLD, SLOW, SMALLER. you gotta be atleast 2 of the 3 in order to fight mayweather.

    check his last 5 opponents.

    shane-old, slow

    jmm-old, slow, smaller

    hatton-slow, smaller

    de la hoya- SLOWER, old (for some odd reason... de la hoya gave him the fight, whatever this is a different discussion)

    and carlos who? BALDOMIR!!!- old, AND SUPER SLOW!!!

    mayweather would never fight khan. he has a problem with people with good jabs and khan has arguably the best jab in the game at the moment.

    i wouldnt be surprised to hear kj noons in talks with mayweather....

    I don't think Khan jab will be enough to hold off Bradley. I see Bradley pulling Khan into a fight on the inside, where he would work Khan to a victory.

    Fans just want to see fighters step up to the plate. It is after all their job.
    A fighter that talks trash, but won't fight ... now that's ridiculous.

    Normally I would agree, but with Mayweather it's just. Either he puts the pen to the contract or he doesn't. Unbeaten records be damned; I'd have more respect for him if he fought Pac and lost than if he kept up this childish bullshit.

    regarding floyd fighting old, slow, and small guys...
    .
    LOL, that's some funny stuff, and true....

    As with other good opponents out there, they simply just don't fit floyd's criteria.

    Cotto = not old, not slow, not small ----> no go
    Clottey = not old, not slow, not small ----> no go
    Margarito = not old, little slow, but taller ----> still no go
    Martinez = not old, not slow, taller ----> no thanks
    P Williams = not old, not slow, very tall ----> definitely no
    Pacquiao = not old, fast as sht, and is a beast ----> hell no!! stay away, take a very long vacation..

    And apparently while some guys are shitty wins on Mayweather's record, those same guys look amazing on Pacquiao's resume (not to mention that two of the three fought Pacquiao after they lost to Mayweather).

    :rolleyes:

    mosley = not slow, but same size and OLD. ...still 2 out of 3 in the Mayweather criteria, and still took too long for him to fight Mosley..

    Mosley gave everything he had in the first 2 rounds, and in my opinion it wasn't because Mayweather started to do better, it was because Mosley had nothing left.. (all I saw was lots of hugging, pushing, and ....jittering)...

    most people will look fast against the likes of margarito and mayorga. 154 lbs weight drained mora was wayyyyy faster than shane. and mayweather is leaps and bounds fast than him also.... so yeah, u can say hes slow.... AT THIS POINT OF HIS CAREER

    I get what you're talking about, but now there's people saying that Mayweather only fights slow, smaller guys, and that his record is apparently full of shit.

    That's just stupid, I want to see Pacquiao vs Mayweather too
    but in the mean time, I can be content without attacking anybody's record.
