No way! Its a poison chalice for both of them.
Hatton wins, he has beaten a very talented, but not yet finished article, so no different to beating an 'over the hill' name. And, if he lost, well, he goes out on a loss to an as yet unproven talent.
If Khan wins against Hatton, the cry will go out that Hatton was not the Hatton of old, and he has beat up on another 'past prime' fighter (like Barerra). It does nothing to further Khan's career.
If he lost, well, he was a paper champion, and not ready for the world stage.

The gate for the fight in Britain would be big, but globally, it wouldnt warrant a PPV in the States or Europe, so both would be risking way too much for not much money.

Hatton vs Khan would make money in the UK, but as Cord said would it be enough? would be the only reason for them to do it.

Khan is a great offensive boxer. He is aggressive, has fast hands, punches hard and has that "finishing" instinct.

Defensively, he isn't on the same level as Mayweather. Even in the Kotelnik fight, where he dominated the fight for most parts, he was still caught by punches that I don't think Mayweather would've been hit with.

Mayweather has great peception and reaction. He can see punches coming and reacts. His body is able to adjust very quickly to what is coming.

Khan doesn't seem able to do this. He seems to see punches late, or even more worringly, not at all. Perhaps his natural aggression in the ring means his focus lies on dishing it out, rather than what is coming back. Maybe Freddie Roach can work with him to change this, who knows?

Khan to me will always be an aggressive fighter, and a coach should encourage this, but factor into this aggression ways to address weakness in a boxers style. I don't know though if this aggression and his undoubted ability will be enough to overcome Mayweather. Would be interesting to watch though.

Just a quick word on an Indonesian boxer called Chris John, who boxed on the undercard. He has been the World Featherweight Champion for 6 years now, and he currently has a 45-0-2 record. Very good little boxer who is fast closing in on Marcianos undefeated (if not the Rock's perfect)record.

Khan is very young, very talented, but is not yet the boxer he will become. That is why I said it is a shame we will never see Khan at his peak, against Mayweather.
The impressive thing about Khan is that he improves every fight, and has already improved his defence massively under Roach, in quite a short space of time.
Let him season, continue to improve as an all round boxer, and I think he will be quite special.

If you were Mayweather what would you do? Would you fight Sugar Shane Mosely or wait for Pac Man? After Juan Marquez I'd wait for Pac Man and then maybe fight Mosely after the Pac Man fight just to shut people up that he didn't fight the best of the best.

Personally I think Shane would be a hard fight for him if he fights like he fought Marguritta but if foughts like he fought Forrest he would get shut out, of course Mayweather doesn't have Veron's power and size.

That's a tough question. I feel a bit bad discounting Cotto from the mix, but I just dont think he is the man to beat Pacquiao.

I think stylisticaly, that Mosely poses more problems for Mayweather than Pac, and that Pac is where the rep is at, so I think he will wait for Pac, with Mosely as a nice little earner should he fail, or as a good challenge to his confirmed status should he win.
