Amir Khan: Floyd Mayweather is a Fight We Can Win

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN insisted “I’m no cheat” after his controversial world light-welterweight win. The WBA champion’s fifth-round win took the IBF belt from holder Zab Judah. Angry Judah claimed the punch that floored him was an illegal low blow. Fight official Vic Drakulich gave the experienced Judah a count of 10 when he dropped to the canvas following a devastating Khan uppercut.

But Khan said: “There is no way it was a low blow. I am not that kind of fighter. I hit him on his belt and the referee said there was no problem with it.”

Khan, 24, is on course next year to meet American ace Floyd Mayweather Jnr, a five-division world champion who has won all of his 41 fights.

Khan said: “My future is already mapped out and that really does give me motivation. The Mayweather fight is something I’m looking at for the future and it would be huge for me. It would drive me on. I’ve got the speed and the skills and with (trainer) Freddie Roach polishing me up a little more, it’s a fight we can win.”
