Bolton star Amir Khan is not very happy with some of the circulating rumors that Floyd Mayweather is going to return for a possible fight with Adrien Broner.
Mayweather, 41-years-old, retired from boxing back in August of 2017 - after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round of the cross-sports fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Khan has been in the running to face Mayweather for several years, but he was always passed over for other opponents. Back in September 2015, Khan was passed over in favor of his then training camp stablemate, Andre Berto.
Khan, in taking a big risk to push for a future Mayweather clash, moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds to challenge Canelo Alvarez for the WBC middleweight title on HBO Pay-Per-View. Khan was knocked out in the sixth round.
A few weeks ago, Mayweather revealed a video where he met face to face with former opponent Manny Pacquiao at a concert in Toyko, Japan. Mayweather and Pacquiao were both beating the drum for a planned rematch in the near future.
But, Mayweather would later reveal that he planned to take a tune-up or two before the Pacquiao rematch would take place.
One of the names been kicked around for Mayweather is Broner.
Khan, who picked up two wins in 2018 and is pushing for a major fight to close out the year or for early 2019 - and Mayweather is at the top of his list - if Mayweather actually decides to return to the ring.
"So I see a tweet that there’s talk about Floyd Mayweather possibly fighting ‘The Problem’ Adrien Broner. The only ‘problem’ here is Mayweather’s been ducking me for years because he knows styles make fights. My style would cause him a whole load of problems," Khan stated.
