Mayweather Reacts To Khan's Comment on Pacquiao

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) briefly spoke with UK paper Daily Mail about the possibility of facing British star Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) in 2015. Khan is scheduled to fight on December 6th and Mayweather returns on September 13th against Marcos Maidana in a rematch. In a recent interview, Khan stated that his old Wild Card stablemate, Manny Pacquiao, would present a tougher match than Mayweather.

'He (Amir Khan) knows that the fight between us can still happen,' Mayweather said to Daily Mail. 'He is an exciting young fighter - but I don't just fight anybody - they have to prove themselves. If you ask me will the fight happen - then I would say yes. I hope next year - but these fights are always about timing.

'I saw the comments where he thought Manny would give him a tougher fight than me. I have no response to that. I will just remind him of those comments after I have beaten him.'

Floyd, just fight Maidana, chose his gloves, the ring size, have the ref in your pocket and ride off into the sunset. No one wants to see you against Khan, and you are afraid of Pac...just move on.

If Khan fights and beats Brook in December the fight with Floyd will happen.
