Khan Leaves Mayweather Fight in Al Haymon's Hands

By Edward Chaykovsky

British star Amir Khan (31-3, 19KOs) is taking a break from the ring, but his mind is fully fixated on a September 12th showdown with WBC/WBO/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26KOs).

Khan returned to the ring last month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and won a tough twelve round unanimous decision over former WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri.

Mayweather was also in the ring last month, winning a twelve round decision over Manny Pacquiao in what was easily the richest event in the history of the sport.

After two failed attempts to secure Mayweather in the past, Khan is going to sit back and leave the negotiations in the hands of his adviser, Al Haymon - who is also the longtime adviser of Mayweather.

"Look, Al Haymon advises me and he advises Mayweather. I think he can make the fight happen and at the moment I'm just going to leave it to him. I'm not really focusing on it. I'm just going to stay back, lay low at the moment and let him make the moves. He'll come back and approach me [with the results]," Khan told Real TV.

"I'm going to take some time off and not think about boxing....Ramadan is coming up. Obviously Ramadan comes once a year and it's a mental thing, mentally to get through it."

Let Mayweather fight Khan. If Maidana got a shot Khan should too. After all, Amir beat Maidana first. Before Devon Alexander and before Mayweather.

[QUOTE=aAgger;15775722]Any top 10 welter would look spectacular against the likes of Jo Jo Dan and Frankie Gavin. Any top 10 welter would destroy those bums. But if Khan fought against low-level fighters like that, we wouldn't hear the end about…
