4. Amir Khan
Khan’s stock took a hit when Canelo Alvarez ironed him to the canvas during their 155lb-catchweight meeting in May. Though Amir received a lot of credit for taking on Canelo, the brutal knockout will not have served him well.
He has since declared his intention to return to 147lbs, where he remains highly ranked with some of the governing bodies. He’s a world class fighter and, prior to fighting Alvarez, had notched some eye-catching wins at welterweight.
His unrivalled speed makes him a threat to anyone and a fight with Thurman would be evenly matched.
