KHAN FACES ALGIERI FRIDAY ON SPIKE TV

A WIN FOR KHAN PUTS HIM IN MAYWEATHER SWEEPSTAKES

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather has one fight left on his legendary six fight contract with Showtime. That last bout is rumored to take place in September. One of the frontrunners to face the megastar is former 140lb world champion Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) of the United Kingdom. Khan, a former Olympic silver medalist is fast and rangy with good power. His achilles heel is his chin or lack of ability in taking a punch.

He has been knocked out twice in his three losses, and been hurt on multiple occasions in bouts. Friday night he makes his debut on Premier Boxing Champions on Spike TV versus the light punching Chris Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs), live from the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York.
