ALTHOUGH sports fans across the world rejoiced at the news that the two best boxers on the planet, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, will finally get it on, there are a couple of fighters who may be a little too busy to celebrate.

Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto both missed out on fights with either of the mega-bout’s protagonists, meaning they now need to dig around the scraps left in its wake for opponents.

While Khan had made it clear he was willing to face either man, Cotto passed on a multi-million dollar showdown with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in the hope he would land a rematch with Mayweather.
