Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis was ringside at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. win a twelve round unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao to unify the WBC/WBA/WBO welterweight championships.
Mayweather plans to fight in September for what he claims to be the final fight of his pro career. One name circling the rounds is British superstar Amir Khan, who returns to action later this month against Chris Algieri in Brooklyn, New York.
Lewis felt Khan would be an interesting next opponent for Mayweather, but backed the Mayweather's guile and experience to win the day should the fight happen.
"Khan is a fast boxer, he moves great on his feet. The only thing Khan doesn't have is a lot of experience and I feel that may hold him back," Lewis told the Sportsweek programme.
Asked if he thought Mayweather would edge it against Khan, Lewis said: "Yes I do."
