Amir Khan
A former sparmate of Manny Pacquiao who has in recent months has tried to goad the big money fighters-- Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Pacquiao himself-- to fighting him. His recent record is a blow to his appeal but he has a chance to change that if he wins convincingly against Devon Alexander on December 13, 2014.He is also a former Freddie Roach protege plus he has a large following in his home country, United Kingdom. Add the millions of followers of Pacquiao both in the Philippines and the world and a Pacquiao vs. Khan fight could be a large draw both in gates and pay-per-view. Reuters

There were smiles all around Amir Khan's bunker when he defeated Devon Alexander in a one-sided unanimous decision in Las Vegas on Dec. 13. After claiming his victory over the American, Khan reportedly treated himself by splurging on a Swiss luxury watch.

Fight Hype caught up with Khan after the fight and the Bolton-born boxer showed off his DeLaCour watch worth $110,000. According to Khan, he has a lot of similarities with Floyd Mayweather Jr. because he likes to treat himself after every fight. Mayweather, as everyone knows, likes to indulge on expensive things and share pictures of his costly purchases on social media.

Khan's victory over Alexander put him in a leading spot to have a shot at Mayweather's perfect record. He has displayed an amazing performance in Las Vegas by completely showing his dominance. Speaking after the fight, Khan said he just keeps getting better with age.

"I'm better than I was at 26 and now just starting to hit my peak at 28," Khan said. "I work very hard and put on one of my best performances."

The British boxer has been pushing for a Mayweather fight since early 2013, but Mayweather opted to face the Argentine boxer Marcos Maidana, whom Khan has previously defeated, instead. Nonetheless, Khan remains resolute that he could land a meeting with Mayweather in May 2015. He's leaving all the negotiations up to Golden Boy Promotions. Khan remains hopeful that both his and Mayweather's camps will be able to finalise the bout to take place in May because he wouldn't be able to take a fight in September, which is also a regular fight month for Mayweather.

Although Mayweather has recently challenged Manny Pacquiao for a May 2 showdown, many believe that the long-awaited fight will not really take place as both camps are still unable to meet a middle ground. Khan's promoter Oscar De La Hoya is doubtful that Mayweather and Pacquiao will step in the ring together, Mirror reports. According to De La Hoya, Mayweather's next best option is Khan.

British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, however, thinks otherwise. Although Hearn thinks that Khan deserves a Mayweather fight, he feels that the fight would be big enough for Mayweather to take. Hearn said that Khan should face his fighter Kell Brook instead. Hearn is certain that Khan would earn a lot more than the money he received from his last three fights combined.
