Mediocre pugilist Amir Khan challenged the great Floyd Mayweather to battle via Twitter on Monday morning.
In an utter mismatch, the 36-year-old Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) earned a majority decision over precocious brawler Saul Alvarez to gain the WBC light middleweight crown this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Although the 23-year-old Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) didn’t fight poorly and consistently forced the action, Mayweather landed flush shots for 36 minutes that flustered and slowed the youngster.
Comparatively, flattened by a left hook in the fourth and staggered by the same punch in the eighth, 10th and 11th rounds, Khan (28-3, 19 KOs) escaped from the squared circle in April by outscoring Mexican Julio Diaz.
A human chandelier capable of getting floored at any moment with one decisive shot to the kisser, Khan is tentatively slated to meet IBF welterweight titlist Devon Alexander on December 7 in Dubai.
“Floyd Snr wants his son to face me. Lets get it on. Iv never turned down any fight. Speed v speed,” tweeted Khan, 26, who became one of the most youthful British world champs ever at the age of 22.
“King Khan” is simply an overrated boxer with a fragile chin.
In stark contrast to Khan, Mayweather’s one of the premier performers in prizefighting history.
Named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, Mayweather is a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic.
If the reigning pound-for-pound king ever throws fists with the 2004 Olympic silver medalist, “Pretty Boy” would badly embarrass Khan.
Destined to equal Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 mark and retire as an unbeaten titleholder, Floyd Mayweather will easily knock Amir Khan onto Queer Street if the two “get it on.”
