Khan Will Urge Haymon To Get Mayweather at Wembley

British star Amir Khan was inspired last Saturday night, as he watch a crowd of 80,000 fans pack London's Wembley Stadium to watch the rematch between super middleweights Carl Froch and George Groves. Khan would like to get Floyd Mayweather Jr., holder of the WBC/WBA welterweight titles, to Wembley.

Khan, who moved up to welterweight last month to capture the WBC silver crown, believes a fight with Mayweather can sell Wembley out. The two fighters share the same adviser in Al Haymon.

"The biggest stage in boxing is the MGM arena [in Las] Vegas, but after that I think it has to be Wembley, it's huge," Khan told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I think everyone talks about the fights at Wembley, now Carl Froch and George Groves have done that here.

"Let's try and force Floyd Mayweather to come to England and fight me here. I am going to try and force that upon Golden Boy Promotions, Al Haymon my manager and adviser and I am going to tell him 'look how big this event here is in Wembley, why can't we do a show like this?

"Khan v Mayweather, I think it would be amazing. We'd sell it out, it's a fight that everyone wants to see, two fighters that everyone knows about so let's get that done. I've had a taste for it now and I'd love to fight in that ring. I'd love to be here it would be great for the British fans."

How can Mayweather get into the U.K. for this fight. I thought England wouldn't let x-cons into their country.
