I like this match up. I mean why not? It could be totted as a revenge match. What do yawl think? It can do I know a million plus buys. And the Argentine fans would def travel for it. Why not? As an under you could have Thurman and Ortiz as a co main event!
MAHDI
I agree.. this could sell on the theme you mentioned for sure!!!
klonopinz
i was hoping more for thurman vs maidana, but id like to see guererro fight thurman on the undercard. the ghost needs to come back in a good slugger. as far as a fight goes though, e all know maidana has zero chance in hell, hes to predictable and slow. it would be baldomir all voer again.
Dolimite
Well I rather see May beat a guy who is coming off a career win and that has a belt versus some loud mouth glass chin asshole. And so would the public.

i agree, but half of me just wants to see mayweather pull off the khan/prescott KO again for amusement. nothing like khans jello legs to make u smile.lol
BoxingFan86
I hope this is the reason why Floyd held off on announcin' his next opponent. Hopefully, Maidana will be the guy. On top of that, I can see the storyline unfold already. The aftermath of Broner's fight will be a nice pitch for it.
BigFightFan
I'm in the minority here, I prefer khan vs Floyd. Khan has speed, length and reach. Khan doesn't have to worry about being KO'd by one big punch, so I'm interested to see what tactics Floyd will use.

Body shot. End game.
sduck
Idk, i think it'd be a pretty easy fight for Floyd. Devon Alexander laid the ultimate blueprint on how to beat Maidana. Floyd's camp wouldn't overlook that.
AZWildCat
I'd rather have Maidana rematch Khan for rights to the man in September ...fuck around and Floyd end up fighting porter in may!
un01
A fight with Maidana makes more sense than a fight with Khan who hasn't done shit to earn a big fight. Floyd can avenge his pretend little brother and the promotion can easily create the illusion that Maidana has a chance of winning since he beat someone who fights like Floyd.
Col Reb
I'm with you. Mayweather-Maidana sounds good to me. Put Broner-Matthysse on the undercard and it would be even better.
mrchitown
I'd rather see this as opposed to a Khan fight, ';m not opposed to it
BrutUalBK
Any real fight fan would rather see this fight than the Khan fight but money talks right now and the following that Amir has overseas in particular would draw bigger especially since many of them are also huge Floyd fans as well. Marcos to his credit does have a huge following in Argentina but I'm not sure he's at the level of SM over there.
KOpower
Not THAT interested, but I will say that Maidana is a better fight than Danny Garcia. I want to see Khan vs Mayweather just to see what would happen in the center of that ring. I want to see if Khan's speed and offensive output could shake Mayweather.

Maidana...meh. The only thing of interest there is whether or not Maidana's awkward punches could get through that Mayweather defense. My guess is that Mayweather would be on his bike more than normal and it would be an easy UD.

I agree it would sell but do you know how many people think maidana is Mexican? Lmao, all the latinos would come out to support

I think Thurman handles maidana, he has fought to guys almost exactly like him his last two times out. And guerrero already turned down a fight with "one time" we all know why.

Check, how bout one message board I was on some dude said "another huge win for Mexico" I wrote the dude and said Maidana isn't Mexican and the dude reply back "my bad, Mexican American" bandwagon fans.

For the record I stated Broner would take a L faster then any of the new guns that are coming up.
Gambit808
Broner-Maidana rematch, or Maidana-Matthysse, or Maidana-Porter (unification) sounds more compelling to me than Mayweather-Maidana. Even though it could possibly out sell the idea of Mayweather-Khan at the moment given this upset, in NO WAY do I see this fight as competitive for Mayweather as I see in Amir Khan, and even that fight I feel is probably 2 or 3 fights too soon for Khan.
Gambit808
Even Guerrero-Maidana I wouldn't mind seeing. The man (Maidana) is finally in the position of options right now and I don't think campaigning for the straight shot at the money pot (Mayweather) is smart right now, unless he's only lookin to cash out and not prove his he can defend or even unifying his WBA strap before hand.

That would be a decent scrap, remember it was suppose to happen but RG pulled out. I was pissed, already had my tickets ready and everything.

What about the Battle for Argentina? Matthysse vs. Maidana. I have been craving this fight for a very long time. The Khan fight is a shit fight. Speed doesn't mean shit and if Khan thinks the only thing he needs to beat May is speed, the dummy already lost. That chin of his will crack the moment May hits him with a check hook, a la Ricky Hatton. I am still holding out for Bradley. I know, wishful thinking.
klonopinz
man you can throw all 10 names in a blender and not come out with a bad card for may 3, there is just so many options its awesome. i would like to see guererro v broner, they were talkin some shit to eachother late last year.

mathysse vs broner would be awesome. khan vs mathysse too. hell mathysse vs thurman, maidana vs anyone. i cant even make up my mind right now. i propose this:

mayweather maidana
broner mathysse
garcia vs malignaggi
porter vs thurman
Dolimite
It seems I'm not the only onebwho feels this way or the assholes from yahoo read this board. They too think that Floyd should fight Chino. I still thimk this is a better fight than the than the Khan match.
AZWildCat
Khan fucked him self over when he made the decision to skip Devon strait to Floyd...knowing damn well it wasn't 100% set.
enter Marcos Maidana, now that he's spayed one hated unbeaten he's now the man to give the same type of was whooping to money may(we here at fighthype know better)
But he's now freshly in our minds the most deserving and exciting foe for the job in may...and I'm wit it!

This match-up is heating up all across the internet and Khan is quickly becoming a non factor regardless of U.K. fan base.

No lol. If I was Broner, I ain't taking that fight coming off the fight he just had with Maidana. Now him and Guererro, I'd love to see that. The trash talk would be insane and the fight would be great itself I believe

I'd love it. I'm a really big fan of Marcos Lucas and martinez. They all have unique styles and just seem to love to get in there and trade leather

I think Lucas gives Marcos more than he can handle, Marcos has a better style for the ams (lands a lot of punches, flurrys) which is where he best lucas a few times, but I think Lucas has the better style for the pros. He is an underestimated boxer with a lot of power and some pretty straight punches.

Well he may end up fighting both next year Khan in May and Miadana in September.

I agree that I would like to see Floyd fight Maidana.

I also think that the hate for Amir Khan is a little irrational at times. Allow me to explain.

In a perfect world, it would be Floyd against Danny Garcia. Garcia has absolutely earned the fight by obliterating both Khan and Lucas.

However, the powers that be feel that they need to raise Danny's profile and get him a stronger fan base such that the PPV revenue is worthwhile.

For Showtime to make money off of Floyd, factoring in what is being paid to him for the 6 fight deal AND his cut of revenues, fights have to do north of 1.3 MM buys.

Ergo, it's in Showtime (and also Golden Boy's) best interest to search for the most fan friendly match-ups.

Garcia and Maidana absolutely deserve the fight more than anyone. After that, I would say that Erislandy Lara and Shawn Porter are also very deserving.

Khan is very likely going to get the call. The reason is that for all the hate he gets from people, the guy has a legit, worldwide fan base. He's Pakistani. He's British. He's Muslim. He's good looking and well-spoken.

He also has an exciting style, where he'll throw combinations from distance with great hand speed. Next to GR Jr., he has some of the fastest hands in the business.

Dumb motherfuckers say shit like, "Man, ain't nobody in England talmbout Khan, fuck outta here with that shit."

Idiots. There are MILLIONS of Pakistanis in England alone, not to mention Muslims of other nationalities. Just like how them people got behind Prince Naseem, they're going to support Khan and buy PPV.

That's what matters, Dollars and Cents.

Oh I understand your pain. I'm a boxing head just like many of you.

That's why I want Floyd to fight Manny Pacquio. Then I want him to fight Danny Garcia. Then I want him to fight Sergio Martinez, GGG and Erislandy Lara.

None of that will happen though, because we're talking about the only 2 things that matter to the parties involved:

Dollars and Cents.

...And Khan maybe hinting at this fight being a done now on twitter. Announcement expected on his side after the New Years.

"Announcements next month. Enjoying my last holiday with my family then I get shipped to training camp and all serious work. Ready for May"
BoxingEinstein

Mayweather vs Maidana won't happen till late September. Floyd going with Khan for the extra pay and easy win. I dont have a problem with Floyd fighting Khan, I'll look at it as a stay busy fight before he faces possibly Maidana, Garcia, and maybe even Thurman. Hope Bradley leaves TR next year late would be interesting.

Gotta feeling 2014 might top 2013...will be extremely difficult.

I gotta agree with that. I dont like Khan as an opponent, but i aint gonna be totally opposed to the fight as a stay busy. May has earned that. I would like to see a tough opponent in the fall though. Preferably Lara if he fights and Beats Canelo in March.

Mayweather will not be fighting Lara in any point of this stage in his career. I see no reason for him to and the risk/reward isn't enough for him. I admit I do see Mayweather vs Lara happening if Lara upseats GB's golden gooses in spectacular fashion and gets major crowds behind him. Maidana and Danny deserves the fight more than Lara, in my opinion he's #4 behind them and Bradley.

His fan base seems to be overblown. When they speak of Khan it's 50/50 meaning sometimes good sometimes bad. But he's no star like some make him out to be

I agree that he will help sell some PPVs though it will be minimal
Franchize
I think the smartest move would be to have Khan vs Maidana on the May undercard. Winner gets Floyd. Call out Danny, Porter (since he's undefeated) or someone like that.

I agree with you and Max, but more so with you. I remember the Khan/Garcia...most of those tickets were comped and/or given away. Seems like the Peterson fight sold pretty good, and far as the Paulie fight, was it sold out (or nearly close) that night? I'm not so sure about Khan's "drawing power" in the US (though it kills Bradley's, Alexander's (if its not in STL), and a few others), but I've heard "rumors" that Khan isn't loved like that in the UK either.

I agree with Max because, though the UK loves Floyd and may not stand behind Khan in a consistent basis...they'll love and support Khan when it comes to him standing across the ring from Floyd. I can see both sides of the debate.

Who should Floyd fight then? I can rock with Khan/Maidana, but I'd much rather see Khan (who's only barely tested WW water twice) vs Garcia (whom hasn't tested WW waters, but beat Khan, whom was beating him before he got careless). The winner could get Floyd in Sept., I'd totally "slightly" (lol) give Khan a pass for not fighting Devon.

UK are loyal fans to boxing but if you check and read the stuff from over there, Khan isn't well liked. They think he's an arrogant little prick. He got booed in the MGM lobby. He has a built in fan base I admit but it's not over-whelming. His fan base can sell a fight no doubt but if this fight comes off it'll be more so the UK fans being excited about Floyd fighting one of their own. I have doubts they'd even root for Khan to win
Hotsauce
yea khan ain't got that hatton fanbase

people will watch Khan for the same reason people watch Mayweather, cause they want him to get knocked the fuck out

Out of all the viable options, hes earned it the most but he don't want to fight Mayweather. Everytime the fight is mentioned to him, he has a different reason as to why he doesn't want the fight
klonopinz
the better choice is madiana, for the latino support, latinos buy ppv to see mayweather get killed. mexicans will buy it, south americans, ricans, all of them. and if you put khan on the undercard the brits ill still buy it.

Danny doesn't want that L although I do give him a very good shot of pulling an upset, the guy always finds a way to win. I honestly would love to see Bradley and Garcia fight and the winner gets May in 2015! I would love that fight...

May is talking cold cash shit right now, about Maidana, Con and Pac. I know he doesn't handle his social network accounts but he is talking shit. I honestly hope he does not pick Khan. Maybe Khan should fight on his undercard. Broner vs. Khan....
mgrover
Danny doesn't want that fight. He's saying all sorts of shit like oh I don't need Mayweather for my legacy, etc etc His father is singing the same tune.
klonopinz
why take a L for a paycheck? we all kno danny would take a L, hoever glorious that L ould be, its an L. He is not broner, he in no rush to be a star, hes letting in unfold as it should. hes still champ, still at his correct weight, and slowly fighting better guys. H can fight the winner of peterson vs dierry jean and collect that ibf strap. just inify the whole damn division. he should be ibf 140 champ anyway, lucas koed lamont, then danny beat lucas, so he should be ibf champ. that lucas lamont fight was at 141, non title fight, idk why.
HyyerBlaze
Haha yeah those pictures are funny and he keeps clowning Manny about the IRS...Manny should make a pic of Mayweather knocking out a woman lol.
