Khan: I Would Love To Face Mayweather-Ortiz Winner
British star Amir Khan says he's still chasing a megafight with P4P superstar Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jr.
WBA light-welterweight king Khan is set to face American Zab Judah in Las Vegas on July 23.
But even he admits he's casting an eye further forward to Mayweather Jr's ring return against Victor Ortiz on September 17.
'Money' hasn't fought since impressively outpointing Shane Mosley last May, while Ortiz - beaten by Khan as an amateur - has often been touted as a future opponent for Amir in the paid ranks. And Bolton's finest says he'd be happy to face the winner.
He told Boxing News: "For sure, I'd love to fight the winner. Victor just had a great win against Andre Berto, who has quite a similar style to Mayweather - you know, quick hands.
"But Ortiz just walked through him. I think Ortiz has a lot of power at 147lbs and will cause problems for Mayweather.
"But Mayweather is just too classy with the experience, the speed and that eye he has in a fight. I think it will be quite difficult for Ortiz to get to him."
