Mayweather Open To Giving Khan The UK Advantage

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

Welterweight contender Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25 KOs) doesn't have a problem with giving Amir Khan (25-1, 17 KOs), the 140-pound champion, the homefield advantage by traveling to the UK to face the boxer at Wembley Arena - provided that Mayweather defeats IBF champion Zab Judah (41-6, 28 KOs) later night. Mayweather returns on September 17th to challenge WBC champion Victor Ortiz. As far as the fight between Khan and Judah, Mayweather says the boxer with the better chin will win.

“I would love to come to Wembley and fight. The British fans would love to see me fight Amir Khan and I’m pretty sure the Filipino fans would want to see me fight [Manny] Pacquiao. The American fans would love to see me fight anybody. [Khan vs. Judah] will all come down to who wants it more, who is the better fighter and who has the better chin. I fought Judah at 147 pounds. Both are explosive fighters. It’s a good fight to watch,” Mayweather told The Guardian.

I'll fight anybody but Pacguiao, anywhere, and the best out there that doesn't smell Roach. That's what Floyd says.
