Amir Khan: Floyd Mayweather Jr Has Agreed To Fight Me

By Terence Dooley

Amir Khan announced that he will fight at 140lbs for the last time when defending his WBA and IBF belts against Lamont Peterson in Washington DC on December 10th.  Khan, though, is already eyeballing a fight with Floyd Mayweather up at welterweight.  Amir told Sky Sports that Floyd has agreed to the meeting in principle a few fights down the line before blasting Floyd for his conduct in the wake of a fourth round win over Victor Ortiz last month, particularly Floyd's decision to subject HBO's Larry Merchant to a verbal dressing down.

"Talks are already taking place," revealed Khan.  "Mayweather has agreed to fight me but we can't look too far ahead.  I am moving to 147 and maybe my third fight at the weight (will be against Floyd).  I think it is a timing game where a young, hungry fighter comes up and takes him out.  I want to clean up boxing.  He talks a lot of trash, disrespects fighters, disrespects presenters and I'd never do that, he should be the face of boxing in a good way not a bad way."

Peterson will have other ideas, the challenger is 29-1-1 (15), he will hope to unseat 'King' Khan, 26-1 (18), and move onto bigger things himself but it is likely that Khan will grab the W, head up in weight and seek a money spinning showdown with WBC boss Mayweather.

How disrespectful is this guy against Peterson. How can u say that it is "likely" that Khan will win? Yes, we all know how good Khan is, but nobody gave Prescott any probability to win against Khan and we all…
