Khan on Floyd Mayweather: He's a Girl, He's Gone Soft!

By Chris Labate

WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is pledging to break Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s unbeaten streak - if a deal is reached for a 2012 showdown. First up, Khan defends his titles against Lamont Peterson on December 10 in Washington. The British star watched Mayweather's recent knockout win over Victor Ortiz. He saw flaws and he saw Mayweather's age starting to play a role.

"It's all about timing," Khan told the Times. "Mayweather will be 35. He's hit his peak. I'm getting stronger. It happens to all the best fighters, to [Muhammad] Ali and all the big names. They get beaten in the end. You can see now Mayweather gets caught. That never happened before. He's walking forward and you can see he's very robotic compared to those early days. He was amazing."

"I've tasted defeat and I don't ever want to taste it again. Floyd hasn't been beaten and that's one thing I know he's scared of. He admits it himself. He loses and that's him finished. And his time is up."

Khan and Mayweather used to be friends on Twitter. The friendship fell apart, says Amir, when Mayweather was advised of the British star's demand to fight him.

"Floyd used to tweet me a lot," Khan said. "He used to follow me on Twitter. But as soon as he knew I wanted to fight him, he unfollowed me. What a girl, man. He's gone soft."

I like Khan, but he's been talking too much **** lately. He has a promising future, but before he talks about Bradley and Mayweather, he needs to beat Peterson first. That's not going to be an easy task. Peterson has…
