Khan vs. Alexander: East meets West at the crossroads

Devon Alexander - Contender crossroads is the theme heading into Saturday nights Showtime main event from the MGM Grand in the city that never sleeps Las Vegas. If Amir wins he will be in line for a huge fight. If Devon wins he saves a once promising career.

Contender crossroads is the theme heading into Saturday nights Showtime main event from the MGM Grand in the city that never sleeps Las Vegas. If Amir wins he will be in line for a huge fight. If Devon wins he saves a once promising career.

For the last two years the only thing that Amir Kahn talks about in interviews is Floyd Mayweather. That and how he’s made significant improvements to his tool belt as a boxer. If Amir Khan can be 75% as good as he thinks he is major fights will be on tap for 2015 and beyond.

Slowly but surely the tide is turning in Khan’s favor for landing Mayweather. There is a small swell of fans who think Khan is being ducked because of his skill set and speed. Meanwhile, his handlers have been carefully matching him after Danny Garcia stopped Khan in the summer of 2012.

Thurman: Amir Khan is overrated

Devon Alexander - (Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Interim WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman says he sees #1 WBC, #2 WBA Amir Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) as an overrated fighter. Thurman feels that Khan hasn’t beaten anyone at welterweight yet, and that he’s now fighting Devon Alexander for a possible chance to get a fight against boxing’s biggest star Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Thurman feels that Khan hasn’t beaten anyone at welterweight yet, and that he’s now fighting Devon Alexander for a possible chance to get a fight against boxing’s biggest star Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Thurman feels that Khan should at least be fighting actual welterweights without catch-weights. Thurman has made no secret to the fact that he’d be more than willing to share the ring with Khan if he would be willing to take the fight.

That doesn’t mean that Khan is going to accommodate Alexander by standing in the pocket and going toe-to-toe with him, because Khan seems to have learned his lesson about getting into wars with his opponents. Khan learned the hard way that it doesn’t pay off for him to battle his opponents.

This is an outrageously expensive pair of trunks, and it makes you wonder if Khan is getting a little ahead of himself in wearing something as expensive as this for a fight. He’s not at the level of guys like Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao, and the chances are high that he’ll never be at that level unless he’s matched carefully to put him in with guys that aren’t dangerous punchers.

This coming weekend sees our last pugilistic engagement of the year, Amir Khan (29-3) takes on perennial welterweight contender Devon Alexander (26-2) in what is a crucial showdown for the Bolton England native.

For the last few years Amir Khan has been telling anyone who will listen he is the man to defeat the pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather (47-0). The much talked about (by Khan anyway…) showdown has been on the verge of being signed on a few occasions now only to be derailed by none other than Khan himself. Amir Khan has been guilty of committing boxing’s biggest sin a few times now, overlooking his next opponent only to be upset.
