Im just really curious how many boxing fans are really interested in this fight and wouldn't a Maidana fight have been better?

curious how Floyd would deal with Khans speed and if Virgil can actually make someone better thats not Andre Ward. Other than that, we all know the result, Mayweather via TKO/Decision.

Although Floyd hasn't officially stated, looks like he will be fighting Khan... but how does that make any $en$e whatsoever? Floyd's "BigBoss" can't possibly think that it would make any real money. It's not a competitive fight, Khan DOESN'T have a huge fan base anymore, He really didnt to begin with. I would be more than happy to see what Maidana can do with Floyd, Khan it's NOT a pay per view fight.

I believe a GREAT majority of the boxing fans will be happy to make it an extremely "budget friendly entertainment expense", almost free would be good. I am sure most of us are happy to pay full price and go all out for great entertainment, not this crap.

Khan would be a tough fight for Floyd, given the reach and hand speed, it'd be interesting to see how Floyd deals with that kind of pressure, especially in this stage of his career. Floyd would easily outbox Maidana and make him look completely stale. A fight with Amir Khan is more interesting, plus Khan is more known than Maidana.

I'm going to watch it anyway because I am a fan of Floyds
1. Garcia would have been my first chooice but he is not moving up yet
2. Maidana is fighting Broner again
3. Bradley is with HBO and Top Rank (hope to see this in the future) same goes for Pac

So who else is there Porter? Thurman? (They may be fighting each other, and the winner would be another good future opponent for Floyd)

Khan is known in the sport has a win over Barrera, Maidana, Malignaggi, Judah, should have won against Peterson, Julio Diaz who fought to a draw against Porter.
Do I think Khan deserves it more than the 3 guys that I listed? No not really but Garcia, Bradley, and Maidana are not available. If Khan fought Alexander and won not to many people would be complaining about this fight. Floyd is fighting twice this year so that also makes it tougher to find him an opponent that can sell PPV.

If not Khan then who at 147 realistically?
