Amir Khan Wins Fans Poll For Mayweather’s Next Opponent
If things go according to the rules that Floyd Mayweather Jr. put in place, Amir Khan will be next to cash out with a May fight against the pound for pound best.
According to Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole, Khan prevailed over Marcos Maidana in the week-long fan voting that Mayweather announced on Twitter back on Feb. 3.
The voting closed on Sunday, with Khan recording 20,105 votes to 15,474 for Maidana.
Rumors of a Mayweather-Khan bout have been rampant for months, so Amir’s selection won’t be a surprise to any. Fans will be disappointed because he’s not the best available opponent for Floyd.
