Khan Gives Floyd Mayweather Five Day Deadline

By Edward Chaykovky

Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) will not stick around and wait for an offer from WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs). The British star has given Mayweather's team a five day deadline to get him answer on a possible May 2nd clash.

There are ongoing talks for Mayweather to face Manny Pacquiao. Khan is viewed as a viable 'Plan B' option, but Mayweather thinks the British boxer is not a big enough name for a pay-per-view main event.

"I want to fight in May and I want the Mayweather fight but it’s not getting any closer,’ Khan admitted to the Daily Mail. "I’ve answered all the things Mayweather wanted me to do. He wanted me to fight at welterweight, I did that; he wanted to do a vote [to see who he would fight], I won the vote; he wanted me to beat a top guy in the division and I gave Devon Alexander a beating he’d never had before."

"There is a lot of money in a fight with me, not just in America, but he’s trying to avoid me. He’s avoiding two names in boxing, Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan. Mayweather wants to keep his ‘0’, he doesn’t want to take the big fights. If he’s not fighting the top guys but is fighting guys who are over the hill or not at their peak, he’s going to be undefeated.

"It’s a waiting game, I’ve given his team five days. I need to know this week because I need to start training."

This is good. After the deadline passes it gives Floyd no choice but to fight Pac. If May 2 comes and Floyd doesn't fight Pac or khan he's done.

[QUOTE=TheWinners;15275699]Lmao! Yeah Im sure that's why he's talking about it non stop for the past damn year. He aint bringing in no payday bigger than a Mayweather lottery ticket.[/QUOTE] Kell Brook for one would bring in a far bigger payday.
