Amir Khan and Al Haymon reportedly speaking about potential partnership

Al Haymon has become arguably the most powerful man in professional boxing, and he's said to be speaking with Amir Khan about a potential professional relationship.

Amir Khan could soon be a Haymon Guy, which could put him closer to his dream fight with Floyd Mayweather if reports of Khan and power adviser Al Haymon speaking about a working relationship come to fruition.

Khan (28-3, 19 KO) lost out to Marcos Maidana in the recent Mayweather Sweepstakes to determine Floyd's May 3 Showtime pay-per-view opponent. Khan has been pretty upset about it, but has also stated he's determined to get on with it and schedule his next fight.

There has been talk of Khan facing Adrien Broner, Lamont Peterson, and IBF welterweight titlist Shawn Porter, as Khan wants a big fight to put himself firmly in the top spot to face Mayweather in the near future. Both Broner and Porter are Haymon clients, as are many in Golden Boy's stable.

If Khan were to sign with Haymon, it would indicate his long-term interest in continuing his working relationship with Golden Boy, too, as Golden Boy work closely with Haymon, while Haymon and Top Rank don't work together at all.
