The stories of a proposed matchup between Floyd Mayweather and Amir Khan for May 3rd of 2014 blew up today on Twitter. A false story was leaked saying that the fight was done and that an announcement would be made soon. It didn't take long for Khan's team to respond to the rumor saying that it was false and that Amir Khan was training for a match up against Devon Alexander on December 7th. While Khan may be the front-runner for Floyd, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said that there is no negotiations going on for Floyd Mayweather's next opponent at this time.
While Khan's camp claims they are training for a fight against Alexander that has yet to be signed, Alexander's team didn't take long to responde by saying that they are full of it, and that Khan doesn't want to fight Alexander in December as they have yet to sign a contract that should have been done months ago.
