Khan vs. Broner

Khan-Broner: The saga continues

One could be forgiven for mistaking the headline as the title of a new Star Wars film but actually it is the heading of an entirely different lengthy series that concerns Mayweather and Khan. The thing that needs to happen pronto is for the latter to announce his next fight so, at least for the time being, we can forget about the whole Mayweather and Khan narrative that is being increasingly drawn out.

An interesting clash that Mayweather is endorsing to be featured on his May undercard is between Khan and Broner. Khan tweeted last week that he would KO Broner and for Mayweather to fight him afterwards, and Broner was a name that Khan had mentioned as his next potential opponent on Sky Sports’ ‘Ringside’ program.

Mayweather offers fight to Khan if he can beat Broner

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is offering Amir Khan a future chance to fight him if he agrees to fight Adrien Broner on his May 3rd fight card, and if he Khan can actually beat Broner. This another big hoop that Mayweather is asking Khan to jump through in order to get a fight against him, and Khan has no reason to believe that Mayweather will fulfill his promise to give him a fight after he failed to fight him after Khan won his poll on his website Mayweather Promotions. Khan won the poll, but he was left high and dry after Mayweather changed his mind and went with WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana for his next fight. Continue reading

Khan-Broner on the May 3rd Mayweather Card?

By Brandi Miller: Floyd “Money” Mayweather has challenged Amir Khan to face Adrien Broner on his May 3rd undercard for a chance to face Mayweather himself, that being if Khan is able to beat Broner of course. Those who follow boxing know that recently Khan was in the running to face Floyd this May but instead Floyd chose Marcos Maidana. Khan was begging for the fight in the weeks leading up to the fight announcement only to be embarrassed by Mayweather when he was not the chosen one.

The question now is will Khan accept the challenge from Floyd to face Broner. Khan made it publicly known that he needed to fight a big name in order to land the Floyd fight and Broner would definitely be the name that could get people talking. Khan even went as far as calling Broner out on twitter and saying her would win by knockout. Broner has not responded but he did mention the possibility of fighting on “big bros” undercard so maybe he is willing to accept the Khan fight. In my opinion the Khan-Broner fight is an interesting fight but I don’t think it does much for Khan beating a guy who just came off a loss like the one Broner took. Continue reading
