British star Amir "King" Khan (28-3, 19KOs) is preparing for a very tough fight on May 3rd, when he officially moves up from 140-pounds to make his welterweight debut against former division champion Luis Collazo (35-5, 18KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. 

"We know it's going to be a tough fight, plus he had a big win in his last fight with Victor Ortiz, by knockout, so he's going to be confident and he's going to come to fight. It's going to be my first fight at 147, so he probably wants to scare be the bigger man...the stronger man," Khan told Sky Sports.

The main event that evening is a welterweight unification between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Marcos Maidana.

If Khan wins his contest, which is going to be the co-featured attraction, he plans to challenge Mayweather, face to face, either from ringside or at the post-fight press conference. Khan was hungry to land Mayweather on May 3rd, but his dream suffered a setback when the pound-for-pound king selected Maidana as the opponent.

"I probably will be standing there [outside the ring during Mayweather-Maidana] and I'll call him out again, at the press conference, and outside the ring if I see him after the fight," Khan said.

Im not an amir khan fan but give the guy props for taking this fight. The 2 options were Guerrero or Collazo and I think Khan has chosen the tougher fight

[QUOTE=lillu89]This guy never learns win your fight first and don't look stupid later. Collazo is going to beat him anyway and khan will make a fool of himself once again.[/QUOTE] This ^^^. Always seems to be Khan's downfall. Before Peterson, he was talking Mayweather; before Garcia, he was...
