AMIR KHAN claims he will fight Floyd Mayweather - but on his terms.

The two-time world champion is eyeing a mega-bucks May clash against the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter.

But Khan insists he will not be dictated to by the five-weight world champion, who has caused controversy in the past by deciding what his opponents must tip the scales at.

So far, 45 men have tried to beat the American superstar and all 45 have failed.

But Khan reckons he will be worth the ‘weight’ and plans to beat the 36-year-old his way

“I will not be dictated to,” said Khan. “With me it will be 147lbs and that is it.

“I will be moving up a weight and I will not be killing myself to make it – has he ever fought anyone who has done that before?

“He is always fighting guys who are slow, but I think it is time he moves up a notch and takes on someone quick, exciting and as big as him.”

Mayweather ended his four-month break from the ring in September by comfortably dispatching Mexican brawler Saul Alvarez to continue his dominance across the welterweight and light-middleweight divisions.

But Khan, 26, is unfazed by the prospect of trying to beat the seemingly unbeatable.

“No, it is not intimidating, the only person I fear is God,” he said.

“I do not fear anyone in life. I am not scared of Mayweather’s career or what he has done, I respect it, but I am not afraid.

“He always fights people he can control, he cannot control me.

“I am one of the most exciting and fastest fighters in the world, so lets see how he copes against speed and power instead of just power.”

Khan lost his WBA and IBF light welterweight crowns to Lamont Peterson in December 2011, in a bout marred by claims of a rigged result and Peterson's failed drug test.

Although he was reinstated by the WBA he was then beaten by Danny Garcia.
