Khan: I Want To Bring Mayweather Fight To Wembley

Amir Khan believes a mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jnr at Wembley Stadium could happen within the next 12 months.

The WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion recently recorded a dominant knockout victory against Zab Judah and is already planning the next move in his career.

Lamont Peterson is now his mandatory challenger for the IBF belt, while the British fighter has also been mooted to face the winner of September's clash between Jorge Barrios and Erik Morales.

But Khan admits that his ultimate goal is to go up against undefeated pound-for-pound superstar Mayweather and believes he can lure the American to fight him at a sold out Wembley.

"I think every young fighter wants to fight the best out there and in this era Floyd is the best along with Manny Pacquiao," Khan told Sky Sports News HD.

"I can't fight Manny because we train together and we're good friends but Floyd is a possibility, Floyd is a fight that - in the next 12 months - could happen.

"And to bring that fight to the UK - Floyd has said that he would want to fight in Wembley Stadium - what a huge fight that would be.

"I'm sure with someone like Floyd and myself, it would be a sell-out."

The 24-year-old hopes to fight once more in the light-welterweight division before moving up to welterweight, where he says there are a wealth of world class fighters to test himself against.

Khan added: "I think there's only one more fight (for me) in this division, because it is so hard for me to get fights at 140 pounds.

"So we'll take this one fight, then we'll move to 147lbs where there are more challengers.

"We are going in the right direction, I've got (trainer) Freddie (Roach) and my team who are advising me, I just want to keep active and stay busy."

If this fight is in Wembley UK then you will see me ringside, rocking an expensive suit complemented with some Ray-Ban shades. Can't wait for this, fingers crossed!
