Amir Khan has admitted that he would be eager to secure a fight with the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Recent reports have suggested that an agreement is close between the two camps and Khan believes that he will approach the bout in the right way if he is given the chance.

"With Floyd Mayweather, if you're going to be a puncher, you're going to walk towards him and you're going to walk into his shots," Khan told Fox Sports.

"To fight Floyd Mayweather, you have to box him at his own game. You have to box him. You have to use speed, good footwork. Make them old legs move.

"I would love the fight. It would be an amazing fight. It's a fight I've always wanted. We're still working on a few things. We were looking at a fight against Devon Alexander. That fell through."

Mayweather defeated Saul Alvarez in his last fight in September.
