Ellerbe: Amir Khan is still in the race to face Floyd Mayweather, no decision made

Ethan Miller

Has Floyd Mayweather made up his mind? Amir Khan sure thinks so. Leonard Ellerbe says he hasn't.

Amir Khan is crying the blues and going on Twitter rampages, but according to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, he's not technically out of the running to face Floyd Mayweather on May 3 just yet. Ellerbe tells FightHype.com in a brief statement that Floyd simply hasn't decided yet between Khan and Marcos Maidana:

"When Floyd Mayweather makes up his mind on who he's fighting, which he hasn't yet, he will announce it to the world."

It's unclear what Khan (28-3, 19 KO) may have been told or may have heard, but from the way he's been reacting lately, it really doesn't seem like he's getting the fight. If he does, it would come off almost as odd at this point -- if he's still in the race, Khan may have shot himself in the foot coming down the homestretch.

Maidana (35-3, 31 KO) has said very little about anything, only that he wants to face Mayweather, and thought he earned the fight by knocking off Adrien Broner in December.
