Amir Khan: I'm Faster Than Mayweather, I Want Him!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN says he can become the best fighter on the planet by beating pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather. Khan was at ringside as Mayweather extended his unbeaten run to 45 with a majority points win over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

And, within minutes of the final bell sounding, Khan signalled his intention to pull out all the stops to meet 36-year-old Mayweather next year.

Khan is due to meet former WBC and IBF light-welterweight Devon Alexander in New York this December with a money-spinner against Mayweather likely in the spring.

Khan said: “Meeting Floyd Mayweather would be my dream fight. We are the superstars of boxing and, once I have got Devon Alexander out of the way, it will be Mayweather for me, fingers crossed.

“You have to use your speed. He needs to fight someone as quick as him and I know that I am quicker than him.

“He is an amazing tactician but I know my speed will count against him – that is something I believe in 100 percent.

“I want to fight him because he is a great fighter and I want to fight the best there is out there.

“Beating him would make me the best fighter on the planet – 100 per cent.

“He is a tactician and looks great in the ring. I am not saying I will knock him out but I have the speed to overcome him.”

Mayweather said: “I am not making any decisions yet because I have just fought. But who knows what will happen?

“I have won again and it’s been an exciting ride. I took advantage of every opportunity that presented itself in the fight.”

Amir Khan would be an ATG if people would just listen to what he's saying. He's a boxing legend only in his own mind.
