It is hard to picture Mayweather/Khan being made. Posturing aside, I believe Mayweather's team will make their next move pending the result of Pac/Marquez. I'm not saying that it is the only factor in deciding Floyd's next move, but certainly an important component. It's all about money
Khan would be a test for Floyd for the first few rounds, until Floyd has him programmed. Once Floyd has him clocked, Khan won't be able to get off. I don't care how big he thinks he is for the division and how quick he thinks he might be.
, and at the present time, Khan has the most money/money potential attached to his name. He has the right team surrounding him (Pacquiao/Roach/Ariza) to use for material on 24/7 if he lacks in other areas of material, he's foreign with a decent fan base, and he's likely to not go out as bad as Ortiz did. If Khan puts up half the fight that Ortiz did, then he will secure his spot for the next up-and-coming star to begin
the PPV movement. This will also make way for a Khan/Ortiz fight in the future, and its sure to have some PPV headline potential.
You have to look further ahead, past the current smoke being blown in our faces, and never trust Team Mayweather to depend on the next man's move. Mayweather is known for picking opponents and boosting
the PPV potential...he just did it for the Ortiz fight.

Floyd said in the post-fight press-conference that he might give Khan a shot if he fights Vargas. And Khan says he isn't fighting Vargas. So I don't think this fight will happen.
Did you hear what he said later? He said that Vargas is his fighter and its only right for him to scout a title shot and look out for his fighter. Its bad to hang on to Mayweather's every word, but its worse when you dont follow up on it.

all they're going to look at is what kind of money it can make. and they'll play the hell out of Judah quitting and hype Khan up just like they hyped up Ortiz. i think it'll be Khan or Berto.
Thank you! Im trying to see why everybody's having a hard time understanding this
Money always dictates a fighter's (or his promoter's) next move...whether they except an unexpected & off-the-wall fight for more money, or turn down a good fight because enough money isn't involved. A great potential fight will always lose to a messed up negotiation. Great post!
