Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Amir Khan: Business is Boxing

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Amir Khan: Business is Boxing

The jist of this article by boxing news is that Amir Khan doesn't belong in the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr.  Who knew? 

It's a little arch, the way it's written, but good, a little on the intellectual side.  I only partly agree with the "boxing is business" first opinion.  The real fight fans appreciate real talent. 

It's not that Khan is without. It's just that he was EXPOSED -- which is what boxing does.  So he'll go down in four, I think.  But that doesn't mean I wouldn't go down myself in four, or three, or two, or really (why not tell the truth) the first shot?

I love Mayweather Jr. . I do.  I always did.  I don't know why exactly but I always knew the guy was history.  History in the same way that Ali is history, and Joe Louis, and well, there are many. 

But right now Mayweather is living history and it's just great to watch the ring savvy, the intelligence, the capturing of the other guy's spirits, and the breaking down.

I never did understand those Mayweather haters, but I suppose it all good b/c they made Mayweather rise to his destiny as one of the all-time greats.
