If you can’t get a fight with the pound-for-pound king, signing a deal with his boxing adviser should help you get closer to your goal.

Boxing Scene is reporting that Amir Khan and the powerful Al Haymon are in negotiations for Khan to join Haymon’s powerful stable of fighters.

Al-Haymon

Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation have advised BoxingScene.com that there are ongoing discussions between former champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) and powerful advisor Al Haymon, regarding a potential working relationship. Haymon has been riding a hot steak in the last few weeks, adding more names to his massive stable of fighters. He recently signed up WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson and top welterweight contender Luis Collazo. For nearly a year, Khan has been chasing a fight with WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is Haymon’s top client. For months, Khan was a frontrunner to get a Mayweather fight, but Mayweather ultimately chose WBA champion Marcos Maidana for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

If a top name at welterweight is what Khan wants, then Haymon has what he’s looking for. Haymon represents many of the other top welterweights and junior welterweights – including Keith Thurman, Paulie Malignaggi, Shawn Porter, Devon Alexander, Adrien Broner, Maidana, Lucas Matthysse, Danny Garcia, Andre Berto, Victor Ortiz and Collazo.

Things are about to getting interesting.
