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.'
