How possible Mayweather vs. Khan in May?

It becomes more likely that Amir Khan will be Floyd Mayweather Jnr. next opponent. This is according to Jeff Powell report on Daily Mail.

Mayweather will return to the ring on May 3, 2014 to fulfill the 6-fight contract with Showtime. This will be the pound-for-pound kingpin's third fight with this massive contract. According to the report, Amir Khan pulled out from his supposed to be fight against Devon Alexander in December.

However, in another article written by Scott Gilfoid in; Khan is not fighting Mayweather next and instead is still training for the Alexander fight.

“Team Khan would like to dispel recent reports that Amir Khan has pulled out of a potential match-up against Devon Alexander on December 7th, taking up a fight against Floyd Mayweather in May of Next year instead."

Well, I think, it is still too early for Mayweather's team to name his next opponent. It is still too far. To be exact: from the time I wrote this article, there are eight more months before May 3.

It maybe that Mayweather's team just throwing names in the air as his possible next opponent in order to received feedbacks. And in my opinion, without taking anything away from Khan, as a fighter; I thinks it will be easy work again for the defensive wizard.

I am even in doubt if Khan will get past the skillful Devon Alexander.

If it is really true that he will fight Mayweather next; it is really a brilliant move to pull out Alexander fight--for sure Khan will trip up again.

Well, boxing fans let us see, development on this contradicting reports in the near future.

If you are to choose; who do you like to fight Mayweather next? Amir Khan or Danny Garcia?
