TIRED OF WAITING, AMIR KHAN BRACES FOR PLAN B AFTER MAKING DESPERATE PLEA FOR MAYWEATHER FIGHT

"If it's not Floyd, then whoever he fights, good luck. All this waiting around is not good for boxing fans and the fighters," stated former jr. welterweight champion Amir Khan, who took to Twitter earlier today to vent his frustrations as he awaits the decision of undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather regarding his May 3 opponent. It's been nearly two weeks since Mayweather first announced that he would let fans decide between Khan and WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana as his next opponent. Though Khan was the winner of a poll posted on the Mayweather Promotions website, Maidana was far ahead of him in polls on various other websites, including ESPN.com and RingTv.com.

It's unclear as to which poll, or how many for that matter, Mayweather was taking into consideration before making his decision, but for whatever reason, an announcement has yet to be made, which is clearly giving Khan serious concern about whether or not he'll get the fight. In fact, Khan is now making plans to meet with Golden Boy Promotions some time next week to discuss alternatives should he not be announced as Mayweather's next opponent. That being said, Khan has not given up all hope and he's made one final plea for his fans to send tweets to Mayweather, urging him to "give the fans what they want". Check out Khan's series of tweets below:
