Mayweather-Khan Hits UK Stadium in The Next 18 Months?

FLOYD MAYWEATHER is planning to have a British fight inside the next 18 months.

That fight could even be an open air stadium defence of his WBC welterweight title against Amir Khan.

Bolton’s Khan is ranked number two contender for the unbeaten American superstar’s title.

Mayweather, 36, bids for 44th career win in Las Vegas on Saturday night when he puts his crown on the line against California’s Robert Guerrero, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

His adviser Leonard Ellerbe said: “Floyd cannot wait until we can come over there and give the UK fans a big, big fight.

"Floyd has a tremendous fan base in the UK and we're looking at working on something now where he's going to come over there.

"Ever since the Ricky Hatton fight back in 2007, UK fans have been very loyal to Floyd and he definitely acknowledges that and he wants to bring a big, big event to the UK.

"There's definitely a very strong possibility that Floyd will fight in the UK. We'll see how this thing plays out, his focus is Saturday night and then we'll go from there.

"But we're definitely going to bring a big, big event to the UK.”

Mayweather plans to start the build-up to a major British fight with a tour later this year where he’ll meet fans and make high profile TV appearances.

Ellerbe told Bunce’s Boxing Hour on BoxNation: “He won’t be over for a fight initially, but we're going to come over there and do some stuff.

"I'm talking with a couple people now and they're giving me some options, and Floyd will definitely be coming to the UK.

“The UK are his biggest and best fans. He has tremendous love affair for the UK fans.”

Mayweather v Guerrero is live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 347/Virgin Ch. 546) with coverage starting on Sunday morning from 1.30am.  Join at www.boxnation.com

Mayweather isn't going to fight outside LAS VEGAS.

I just really hope it's not Khan. Khan against most welterweights are interesting. Like him and Ortiz would be so fun. But not Mayweather.

Who ever said it was khan? Writer said it could be khan and every one runs with it and starts insulting Floyd like he said it was khan

I'm not a Khan hater, and he's kinda fun to watch, but.... Aren't there more deserving fighters to face Floyd than Khan? Seriously... there's more than a handful of fighters out there who are more deserving, and who in all…

Khan and Brook should square off for a shot at Alexander's belt. And the winner of that fight could face Floyd, I guess.
