Floyd Ducked Amir Khan

Raghavan1's Photo Raghavan1 26 Jun 2018

This would have been a great fight right after the Alvarez fight. I think Floyd also ran a poll in his website asking fans to vote to pick his next opponent which Khan won. But Floyd still chose Maidana whom Khan had beat earlier.

So Floyd ducked the speedster and picked the brawler knowing Maidana would be in front of him all night open to counters. Financially too, Khan would be the better choice seeing the British fans he has compared to Maidana.

Floyd picked Maidana with this quote.... "Marcos Maidana's last performance immediately brought him to my attention. He is an extremely skilled fighter who brings knockout danger to the ring. I think this is a great fight for me and he deserves the opportunity to see if he can do what 45 others have tried to do before him – beat me."

Maidana was a 12-to-1 underdog going into the fight.

We can even set aside the fact that he chose Berto for his last fight, but seeing the above facts I gotta say Floyd blatantly ducked Khan.

If Khan was so easy, why did he choose Maidana(2x) and Berto instead of Khan??

Amir Khan would have frustrated Floyd Mayweather until Floyd bit his ear off?

It would be a classic sleeper like most of Floyds boring fights

It was the headbutts and no one should have to go home to their children like that.

Frustrated.  Because he got KTFO in their first fight, and was getting beat again in the rematch. Mike doesn't likely respond to the butts with ear biting if Mr. Fields wasn't already in his head for beating him up in the ring.
