Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Saul “Canelo” Alvarez over the weekend by a majority decision. That makes Mayweather a staggering 45-0 and at least one person thinks he can beet him, and think he knows how, Britain’s Amir Khan, who was ringside Saturday night.
From Gareth A Davies of the Daily Telegraph:
Fighting Floyd Mayweather is my dream fight. We are the superstars of boxing and, once I have got Devon Alexander out of the way, it will be Mayweather for me, fingers crossed.
He is an amazing tactician but I know my speed will count against him—that is something I believe in 100 percent.
All the fighters who meet Floyd rely on their power, and although he is an amazing fighter, you have to fight him at his own game. You have to treat it like a chess game. You have to use your speed. He needs to fight someone as quick as him and I know that I am quicker than him.
He also took to Social media to share his opinion as the fight was coming to an end.

The full caption reads: 12 th and final round. All those who say power beats floyd your wrong. It’s speed. To beat mayweather it takes speed and explosiveness. Game of chess. Countering and faints. Good win Mayweather.” It looks like he might get his chance, because Floyd Mayweather Sr. wants his son to take on Khan next.
