Amir Khan Vows Fireworks: I Want To Steal The Show!

By Carlos Arias

LAS VEGAS --- Amir Khan's is planning to steal the show when he takes on Luis Collazo on the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana undercard on Saturday night at the MGM Grand on Showtime PPV.

Khan said he knows an impressive performance over Collazo will help him land a massive fight against Mayweather.

"We're going into this fight wanting to steal the show," Khan said after arriving at the MGM Grand on Tuesday for fight week. "We really believe this fight can. (I'm) not taking anything away from Mayweather and Maidana. But I think styles make fights and this fight will be a tough fight and it will go the distance and it is going to be exciting. The fans are going to be on the edges of their seats. We're gonna steal the show. We want people talking about this fight."

Khan said he knows any future plans with Mayweather go out the window if he doesn't take care of business against Collazo.

"People say I'm looking past Luis Collazo, looking at a Mayweather fight or other opponents out there. I'm not looking past this fight because this is a big fight for me. If I lose this fight, then forget the Floyd Mayweather fight. I have to fight Luis Collazo on Saturday night and he brings a lot to the table. He's given all the guys a tough fight, the likes of Ricky Hatton and Shane Mosley. So given them a lot of trouble. He just has that style. He's a game fighter that comes forward to fight. He's a southpaw. He's awkward. So we've trained really hard for this fight. We haven't missed anything. We're going to be ready come Saturday night."

Khan does own a decision victory over Maidana in 2010, but Maidana landed the Mayweather fight after upsetting Adrien Broner in December.

"People always remember you from your last fight," Khan said, "and my last performance wasn't the best against Julio Diaz. I'm a totally different guy from then. I did beat Maidana (in 2010), but I think he still deserves credit for his last fight against Broner. I give him that respect and I wish him all the best."

No need to steal the show leave that to Mayweather, just get a good win.

That's why we love him. It is bound to drama filled and will probably end up with him being stopped.

Khan is always in exciting fights you can't take that away from him. I still think trying to steal the show is the worst kind of mentality. Khan needs to fight a very disciplined fight to give him the best…
