Khan's Manager: Kell Brook, Mayweather Targets at 147

Amir Khan will move up a weight division at the end of the year in order to take on Floyd Mayweather, Khan's business manager Asif Vali told Sky Sports News. Khan added Zab Judah's IBF light-welterweight title to the WBA strap he already owned with a fifth-round stoppage in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The Bolton fighter is set to have one more fight before stepping up to the 147-pounds, where his first assignment could be an all-British showdown with Kell Brook.

"Amir will move up to 147 after December," said Vali. "That is something that he is looking to do in December or early next year. And what we'll be looking to do is maybe have one more fight in the UK. Kell Brook is there at 147 - that's a fight that interests the British fans.

"After that, the summer, [Floyd] Mayweather is there. [On Friday] he came out and made a statement - he wants to fight Amir in the UK, so I hope he sticks by it."

Orangutan Floyd will show up at the fight weighing in at 165lbs to Khan's 147lbs if they ever fight. There is no way Floyd will ever fight fair. If not, then he will just make up another excuse to go…

@WESS - I'd be utterly shocked if Pac beat PBF. Style-wise, Floyd eats him alive. Stoppage around round 10.
