Khan Gives Mayweather a Deadline of Mid-January

By Edward Chaykovsky

Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) is not making the same mistake twice. The Bolton boxer wasted half a year in 2013, and withdrew from a title fight, because he was under the impression that a deal was nearly complete to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs) in May. That didn't happen. Mayweather passed him over in favor of Marcos Maidana.

Now Khan finds himself in the same position, waiting to get confirmation that Mayweather is willing to fight him on May 2nd. Khan refuses to wait any longer than he should. He intends to give Mayweather until mid-January to get an answer - or else the British star will begin making moves to to pursue other options.

"Last year I spent months chasing Maywweather," said Khan to Daily Express. "That is absolutely not going to happen again. I will give it until the middle of January and if there are no signs he will come to the negotiation table, then I will look elsewhere. I have to stay busy and I think my last two performances have shown I belong in the same ring as any welterweight in the world, including Mayweather."
