Former champion Amir Khan is attempting to apply pressure on WBC welterweight king Floyd Mayweather Jr. Khan has already revealed that he signed a bout agreement to face Mayweather on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
But Mayweather has yet to sign his end of the contract, according to Khan.
There is a possibility that Mayweather will take a pass on Khan, and instead face WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, who recently upset Adrien Broner.
If Maidana is picked, then Khan will target Mayweather's rival, Manny Pacquiao, slated to return on April 12th at the MGM Grand. For several years, both Pacquiao and Khan were trained by Freddie Roach. Khan eventually left Roach and hired Virgil Hunter.
"I'd fight Manny," Khan told Daily Mail. "Look, it's business. We are friends and respect each other, but I would definitely consider the fight, and I am sure he would too. To bring it to Dubai, too, that would be huge. I am ready for whatever. Have I ever turned down a fight? Never. I fight whoever is put in front of me."Tags: Amir Khan , Manny Pacquiao , Floyd Mayweather Jr. , Mayweather-Khan , Mayweather vs Khan
