WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has promised to fight, and beat, Floyd Mayweather Jr. within twelve months time. Khan will defend his WBA/IBF junior welterweight titles on December 10 in the United States. He is scheduled to fight again in March 2012, likely in the UK, which is either going to be a final junior welterweight defense or the British boxer's expected debut at 147-pounds.

If everything goes as planned, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has stated that a fight with Mayweather could take place in November of 2012. Because of the difficulties in finalizing a fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, Golden Boy is building Khan as the next viable opponent for Floyd.

"Within the next twelve months I promise I'll beat Floyd Mayweather and I'll be the first to do so. Inshallah [if Allah wills]. Always a young lion coming through," Khan said.

Khan's plan can go out the window if WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz pulls off the upset on Mayweather, when the two fighters clash on September 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

[QUOTE=Picazo]Nobody beats Floyd.[/QUOTE] because he shunned the man who will beat him in violent fashion.. therefore, nobody beats Floyd, right! But somebody will beat him squarely in a very convincing manner, what he needs to do is just to step on the plate, inked the agreement and he had ente...

no you won't Khan still developing, not yet peaked can't see him beating Floyd in 1 year's time he has the speed to put up a fight but not the craft

comment by SceneSpectator!, on 08-20-2011
Pac and Floyd are regarded as the best contemporary boxers, but since Floyd ducked Pac in every way and excuses, it will not be a surprised if he will face Khan next! Sure, Floyd will earn money by fighting level-B first class fighters, so why need to risks his "0" loss records with Pac? Pac figh...
