I think most of it is because he's Filipino and they're always on the lookout for the "new" Pacquiao. Still, he admitted that he didn't watch any tape on Rigondeaux, which is shocking considering that he's a straight up Cuban technical beast.

Tyson Fury: I’m in the elite level. Top of the heavyweight division. I’m looking to fight Wladimir Klitschko next time and knocking him out as well. There’s nobody that can beat me. I don’t have to trash talk anymore. I’ve done all the talking. As Steve said he’s trained really hard, which I hope he has, he’s got a great trainer, he going to get some great advice, but you know what? We have leagues for reasons. And I’m leagues above this guy and I’m going to show you that tomorrow….if Steve Cunningham can beat me I will retire tomorrow evening or whenever it is. There’s no losing. This man cannot beat Tyson Fury. Ten men like him could not beat Tyson Fury!

Steve Cunningham: By talking that trash, that just makes me go back in the gym and work harder. I wanted to beat this guy before, but now I really want to beat him. I want to make a statement so you’re going to see the best Steve USS Cunningham tomorrow.

Khan is a joke, he keeps getting exposed and the country still believes he's the next big thing

Someone has to be. They just cheer for who's available.

Whatever happened to Ty Fields Heavyweight in the IBF at one time. Watched him fight several times. 6'9 Big left hand but didn't move real well.

So Mayweather had another 12 round practice session and Klitschko stopped another waste of time pretender in 4 rounds. I'm sorry, but Boxing is just the biggest bore of sport at the moment. Champions not fighting each other. Judges screwing fighters out of victories. It's just big names making pay days for turning up to defeat useless fighters.

The next "big" fight I see for Mayweather, and it is just silly saying this, but has to be Khan. Floyd says he wants a "big" fight in the UK and it doesn't get any bigger than Khan (which just shows the sorry state of British boxing at the moment!) What's even more ridiculous is that the WBC have Khan as the number 2 contender for Floyd's title when he's never even fought at 147lbs.

And please Klitschko(s) - Just retire... Please!

Mayweather is quite possibly the greatest of all time, as we know the Pac fight will never happen so lets make Canelo vs Mayweather for September, the only real challenge left.

Mayweather will batter Khan though if that does happen which probably will if he comes to the UK

It may come as no real surprise to fight fans, but it seems Amir Khan’s days as a 140-pounder have come to an end. The former WBA/IBF light-welterweight champ, in speaking with Steve Lillis of BoxNation, said he is looking at moving up to 147 and challenging the winner of May 18th’s clash between IBF welterweight champ and British challenger (and replacement for the injured Kell Brook) Lee Purdy.

As fans may have read, Khan’s ultimate goal is a massive fight with pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Junior, and a win over Alexander or Purdy might well get Khan what he wants.

“Going up to welterweight and fighting Devon Alexander is a possibility,” Khan, who will meet with Richard Schaefer this week in L.A, told Lillis. “It seems the fights at light-welterweight with Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson are not getting made. I am not going to wait around for them because one day they will move up. I am getting big for the weight and I am just going to see what Richard Schaefer says when we meet.

“I could be one fight away from the Mayweather fight if things go to plan.”

If Khan does face either Alexander or Purdy next, the fight would take place in December, meaning Khan would fight Mayweather next spring at the earliest. Once again, Khan – who was in Las Vegas last night and had predicted a win for Floyd – repeated his belief that he has the style needed to upset “Money.”

“To beat Floyd you have to beat him at his home game,” Khan stated. “Box him the way he fights. You have to use speed. Of all the fighters who can face him I would have a chance because of my speed. I have got the speed and ability that can cope with him.”

Is Canelo really a challenge? Every name guy he has beaten, Mayweather has beat as well. He isn't a juggernaut, he is the guy who's available.

Trout was widely regarded as the best in division until he met Canelo (granted the judges were quite biased)
