Boxing news and rumors: Shane Mosley trashes Amir Khan, is Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Khan possible
Who will Shane Mosley fight next? You donâ€™t need to depend on rumors about his plans to fight in the months ahead. He has challenged almost everyone and anyone in the last few months and now he has gone on to challenge the emerging superstar of the boxing world Amir Khan of Bolton, London.
He not just challenged Amir Khan but gave an impression that the king of the boxing world Floyd Mayweather Jr may be fearful of Amir Khanâ€™s speed that he may not match due to his advancing age. Floyd Mayweather is close to 37 years of age and he is clearly not as agile as he was a decade or so ago.
Shane Mosley has held many belts including lightweight, welterweight, and light middleweight titles and he is still a threat to anyone who may attempt to beat him in the ring. He has said that if Floyd Mayweather is not prepared to fight the Khan from Bolton he will fight him after his scheduled 12-rounder with veteran boxer Ricardo Mayorga on August 29 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
While throwing his challenge at Khan he said, â€œMayweather don’t want to take on @AmirKingKhan then Mosley will. Any1 who wants these hands can get itâ€. He followed it up with another tweet that might have been aimed at getting an angry remark from Amir Khan. â€œEvery1 knows I will shatter Khans jawâ€ said his second tweet.
But Amir Khan seems to have taken it in his own stride and just laughed at it by tweeting â€œHa haâ€.
A report while talking about the reason why Floyd Mayweather jr has developed cold feet when it comes to fighting Khan says, â€œâ€¦Money was turned off by Khan’s consistent yapping and begging for a fight. The Briton’s constant mention of the pay-per-view king’s name in his recent interviews said to have drawn the ire of Mayweather, which was allegedly the main reason why the latter would not want anything to do with himâ€.
