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.
