Floyd Mayweather Jr hints at Amir Khan fight

WBA and WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr reveals that he might face British boxer Amir Khan in his next fight.

Floyd Mayweather Jr has hinted that he could face British boxer Amir Khan in his next fight.

The 37-year-old retained his WBA and WBC welterweight titles with a unanimous points victory over Marcos Maidana on Saturday, and he has admitted that Khan may be his next opponent.

"Amir Khan is a solid, good competitor, he's a good fighter," the Daily Mail quotes Mayweather as saying. "We don't know who I'm fighting right now, we don't really know.

"I'm not rushing. If that fight happened to come my way then we'll make it happen. But Amir Khan's a good fighter, of course. I mean I think when Amir Khan was an amateur, I was champion. And then when Amir Khan turned pro and got knocked out, I was champion.

"Then when Amir Khan got knocked out again I was champion. And then when he lost his belt again I'm still champion and I'm still right here."

Victory at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas saw Mayweather extend his professional career record to 47-0.
