Khan: Mayweather Wants Me, Freddie and Me Accepted!

By Edward Chaykovsky

During a recent interview with the BBC, WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan discussed the possibility of fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2012. Mayweather returns on September 17 against WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz, while Khan has a scheduled unification on July 23 against IBF champion Zab Judah. If both of them win their upcoming fights, Khan believes the possibility of facing Mawyeather is very realistic.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer spoke with Mayweather, who is very interested in the fight. Khan and his trainer, Freddie Roach, accepted Mayweather as a potential opponent for 2012.

"It's very realistic. Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer spoke with Mayweather and his manager, and they really want the fight against me. And he also spoke to me and Freddie and we both agreed to take the fight in 2012. I think it's going to be a huge fight. I would want to bring that fight to the UK because in England we haven't had a real big fight for a long, long time. Floyd Mayweather against me, I think we could sell out Wembley or wherever," Khan said.

"If I go in there and beat Floyd Mayweather, I think that I would be known as one of the greatest fighters in history to come out of England. I really think the fight will happen in the next twelve months."
