Floyd Mayweather's tweet on Twitter
Top ranked boxer Floyd Mayweather took to social networking today informing fans he is asking the public who he should fight next, Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana. Many flooded Mayweather's social networking pages with their responses regarding their favorite match up. Of course, Manny Pacquiao is everyone's top choice, but as his contract with Mayweather's adversary Bob Arum will not expire before May 2014, the month of Mayweather's next fight, Khan and Maidana are top choice.

Khan, the former champ, should be Mayweather's first choice for the fight. Khan has been training in anticipation of the bout, even in spite of the fact Mayweather taunted him in an interview that no contract has been signed between them, contrary to what he alleges Khan stated to the press (Floyd Mayweather Slams Manny Pacquiao And Clowns Amir Khan Stating He's Lying About Boxing Contract To Fight Him).
Maidana recently beat one of Mayweather's Money Team members, Adrien Broner. However, it was not without controversy, as his corner (Alex Ariza) was seen discreetly slipping Maidana a pill during the fight. The website TMZ stated the incident is being investigated by the Texas Boxing Commission. Until that incident is sorted, Khan should definitely be the first choice.
