Amir Khan: One More Loss and I Can Forget Mayweather

AMIR KHAN is hoping to complete his return to the big-time by setting up a megabucks clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Khan tackles Julio Diaz at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena tonight in the latest stage of his bid to get back on the world title scene.

And the 26-year-old Bolton bruiser believes victory will take him a massive step nearer a superfight with five-division world champion Mayweather.

Khan suffered shock losses to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia and knows a win over Mexican Diaz is essential.

The two-time world light-welterweight champ returned to winning ways against Carlos Molina in Los Angeles in December and must do a similar demolition job on Diaz.

Then he can start seriously thinking about a mouth-watering tussle with Mayweather, saying: "That would be a dream fight for me.

"We both have deals with Showtime so it could happen. It's a fight everyone would love to see and I would love it to happen."

But Khan knows that such a dream will turn into a nightmare if he loses tonight and added: "There is no point in looking ahead.

"One more loss and I can forget about the superfight - it will be well and truly gone. So my focus has to be putting on a good show against Diaz."

Helping him to do that will be Virgil Hunter, the man he took on board to replace the sacked Freddie Roach for the Molina fight.

As revealed in Starsport this week, Hunter has helped Khan's tendency to rip up the gameplan when he gets in the ring.

That has happened in each of his three defeats, most noticeably against Breidis Prescott and Garcia.

Khan said: "Virgil is a teacher and I love learning. I have become much calmer and more of a thinking fighter under Virgil."

He will have to have his brain switched on against 33-year-old Mexican Diaz who, like Khan, is attempting to rebuild his career.

The two-time world lightweight champion has beaten 29 of his 40 victims inside the distance.

He said: "This fight isn't just about Khan getting his career back on track.

"I am not just over here for some kind of a break in the UK. I mean business."

Khan v Diaz is live on BoxNation from 7pm tonight. Go to www.boxnation.com for more information.

[QUOTE=retnuocllup]Khan should just forget about Floyd altogether. He can't even outclass an aged Diaz[/QUOTE] He could barely beat him let alone outclass him.

The sad part is that I can see Floyd fighting Khan and hyping him as an "undefeated" fighter at 147.
