WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan told The Guardian that a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr., the WBC welterweight champion, can bade made in "six to nine months.' Khan faces mandatory challenger Lamont Peterson on December 10th and then plans to make his welterweight debut in early 2012. He wants Mayweather in his second welterweight bout.
Khan believes he is fast enough, and strong enough, to punish Mayweather and win.
"Listen, I'm ready to fight [Mayweather]," Khan said. "I can see a lot of things in my armoury that would beat Floyd - he will take a lot of shots and he will get beat. Floyd Mayweather is beatable - I think definitely he's beatable. The fight will happen definitely - it'll happen within the next nine months, six to nine months."
Khan is still shooting for a March fight in UK, which is going to be his debut at 147.
"What I want to do is in March time bring a big fight over here. That's what I'm looking for, or maybe fighting one of the UK opponents at 147 [pounds], moving up a weight," Khan said.
