Mayweather Sr: I Want My Son To Whip Amir Khan's Ass

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

FLOYD MAYWEATHER Jr is ready to silence Amir Khan when they finally meet in a megabucks fight next year.

His father and trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr, says his unbeaten son will demolish the Bolton fighter.

Mayweather Jr, unbeaten in his 44 professional bouts, is due to meet Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Las ­Vegas on September 14.

Khan is ready to return to action in December and a victory will set-up a mouth-watering meeting with Mayweather next spring.

But Mayweather Sr warned in an interview with Hustleboss: “If there’s one fighter whose a** I want Floyd to whip it’s Amir Khan – he’s no outstanding fighter and as long as he stays here he’ll keep getting his a** whipped.”

Mayweather, 36, holds world titles at light-welterweight and light-middleweight and is regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Khan, 26, a former WBA and IBF light-welterweight ­champion, ­believes he is just one fight away from a clash with ­Mayweather.

He said: “When you are young the dream is to be world champion and now the dream is to fight and beat Mayweather.

“Once you beat him you become the best pound-for-pound fighter around and that’s what everyone aims for.

“Maybe I got knocked out or didn’t perform well in some fights, but my style would be exciting to watch against him.

“He’ll make a lot of money with the Alvarez fight, but I can’t think of any other boxer with as big of a following or pull that I have that he can fight.”

Khan is still ­searching for his next opponent ­after original choice Devon ­Alexander cooled on the fight.

“It looked promising but he kept coming up with excuses,” said Khan. Whoever his opponent is, the fight will see Khan moving up to the ­welterweight division.

He said: “I think I’ll be a lot more comfortable at 147lbs. I’ve been struggling to make the weight.

“I have been at 140lbs for a long time so I’ll be looking to fight at 147lbs next time.”

Richard Schaefer, head of Khan’s promoters Golden Boy, said: “If your goal is to fight Floyd at some point then obviously the action is at welterweight, and Amir can be stronger at the higher weight.

“Amir is excited to move up and realises there are tremendous ­opportunities for him.”

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn;13997475]guess I was wrong on this!![/QUOTE] No, you weren't wrong. Floyd Sr just knew beforehand and couldn't care less about keeping his lips sealed and spilled the beans before the fight is officially announced. The same thing happened…
