Khan: Everyone in Vegas Said I'll Trouble Mayweather

By Edward Chaykosvky

After his victorious return at MGM Grand in Las Vegas last Saturday night, Amir Khan says the fans in attendance were demanding a fight between him and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Both fighters saw action that night. Khan won a dominant twelve round unanimous decision over Luis Collazo, and Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision over Marcos Maidana in the main event.

Mayweather will return on September 13. Khan is unable to make that date because of Ramadan. The British wants to return on a date in November or December - against Mayweather or someone else in the top ten.

"Everywhere I was walking in Vegas everyone was talking about me fighting Mayweather," Khan said to Sky Sports Ringside. "They were saying: 'We want to see that fight' and 'you're the only one that can give him problems with that speed, movement and explosiveness'.

"I was watching the fight between him and Maidana and Maidana was getting a lot of shots in. And Maidana is a lot slower than me and his footwork is a lot slower. When you fight someone like Floyd Mayweather, you can't respect him. You have to go out all guns blazing. Mayweather is a great fighter but opponents are getting smarter and fighters are getting smarter.

"I think what Floyd Mayweather needs is someone who is not going to stand in front of him with slow feet and slow hands, and that is me. I don't have slow feet or slow hands. Floyd is an amazing fighter and the only people who can give him problems are good boxers, who can move their feet well and who can make opponents miss."

[QUOTE=lopez36;14537736]I saw nothing in his fight against Collazo that made me think he could be competitive with mayweather,he's fast but sloppy with his punches,what about his fight makes him think he can win? was it the constant pulling down on…
