The grapevine had Amir Khan gloving up with Robert Guerrero, and the Twittersphere seemed to dig that style clash. The grapevine had it wrong though; in fact, Khan will meet ex welter champ Devon Alexander on Dec. 13, in a scrap to be presented on Showtime, which leaves Guerrero looking for a dance partner.
I asked Ghost’s co-adviser and cornerman Bob Santos what happened to a Khan-Guerrero bout, and what might come next for the fighter who impressed in his last outing, getting a fan-friendly UD12 over Yoshi Kamegai on June 21. “The Alexander fight is a better style matchup for Khan, that’s for sure,” Santos told me. “Khan has avoided Robert for years. We’re not sure what’s next, Juan Manuel Marquez is a possibility. We will see.”
Nothing not to like about that one, folks. Your thoughts?
