WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) would love to face Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) next. Thurman was ringside on May3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and watched Khan make his welterweight debut with a twelve round unanimous decision over Luis Collazo, who went down three times in the fight.

Khan would like to get in the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr., but there is a scheduling conflict where the British star is unable to meet Mayweather on his target return date of September 13. Khan would like to be back by October or November against a top contender, and Thurman is ready to answer his call.

"I think Amir looked good, he looked good. Khan looked pretty strong, he still looked athletic at 147 and everything, you know. He can box, he did a good job and he fought the right fight and Collazo didnt fight the right fight and I dont think Collazo could deal with his speed or figure out what he should do to counteract that speed," Thurman told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"Me and Amir, that would be a great fight. I like to fight, Im down for the fight and I think Im gonna knock him out too. To me, Amir is a real nice boxer, he really is and he does deserve the credit hes gotten throughout his career, but to me hes like an amateur, like an amateur style fighter. I had to fight like fifty of those kind of guys in the amateurs all day. Im ready for Amir Khan and I look forward to the fight, well see what happens."

Khan calling out Mayweather and said he'll even face Pacquiao. Heck, Pacquiao should make him eat those words. He knows better than to call out Thurman or Porter. He will be getting off the canvas again. I think Khan will be looked over again....Mayweather will not change his schedule for a 3-2 f...

[QUOTE=Sugar Q]The problem with your way of looking at things is 'WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO EARNING A MEGA-FIGHT". Khan thinks he can b*tch his way into a mega-fight after he was not too long ago KTFO at a lower weight. [/QUOTE] If Khan can earn a Floyd fight by fighting bigger names then why fight ...

[QUOTE=Snake4380]Considering Thurman destroyed Julio Diaz in 3 rounds. And considering Khan was dropped and went life and death him...yeah we'll take Thurman's word for it...[/QUOTE] By this theory Pac destroys Mayweather in one!
