Mayweather, Khan Have Phone Convo on Future Fight

Amir Khan was convinced he was going to face WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The British fighter was crushed when Mayweather pushed him to the side and selected WBA champion Marcos Maidana as the May opponent.

Recently, Khan and Mayweather spoke directly on the phone and discussed the possibility of facing each other down the line. To set that up, Khan has been offered a featured undercard spot on the Mayweather-Maidana Showtime Pay-Per-View, and former welterweight champion Luis Collazo is the rumored opponent. 

"I spoke to Floyd funnily enough a week after he'd announced his fight with Maidana," Khan told Sky Sports Ringside. "My friend called me and asked if I wanted to talk to Floyd and I said 'put him on the phone' and Floyd said 'how are you doing champ?' I said 'I'm alright, but... why didn't you take the fight? What was the issue?'

"And he said 'listen champ, you're a great fighter, I respect you. The fight will happen, you know. I have a few more fights left in my career and it will happen between me and you - just not yet'."

"Golden Boy got back to me and said 'you can fight May 3' on the Floyd card as chief support'. I thought it was a good idea because I'd be in his face plus Maidana is a guy I have already beaten so I might steel a little of the attention from him!"
