Khan Discusses His Next Option

But can his team pull this one off?

Following the impressive manner of his display at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas when he totally out-boxed Devon Alexander, Amir Khan is now putting that pedal down hard in order to achieve a mega-fight against either Floyd Mayweather Junior or his former stable-mate Manny Pacquiao.

Talking to the media, after his storming Saturday night success, Amir was in a positive frame of mind, as you’d expect, remarking,

'I feel better at 28 than I did at 26.”

'I'm hitting my peak and getting better as a fighter. I can't wait to show the world what I have.'


But, with rumours that Mayweather now wants a showdown with Pacquiao, on the May 2nd date already selected by Mayweather for his next fight, Amir might have to put his plans on hold or possibly step into the breach when negotiations between the Mayweather and Pacquiao fall apart, as they have done in the past, or as Oscar De La Hoya, of Golden Boy Promotions puts it,

“What’s the plan B for Mayweather then? What’s the fight that Mayweather needs? It’s Amir Khan.”

For Amir it has to be the May date, the next date Mayweather has pencilled in clashes with the Ramadan festival and is a date that, due to his religious beliefs, Khan will not commit to.

But remaining on the subject of Mayweather, Khan further added,

'Stylistically, I think that Mayweather does not want me because I have that style which causes him big problems.”

'But it's up to Mayweather now. The ball is in his court. I'll leave it to my team and him to get that fight done.”

'It's a fight that the British crowd and boxing fans want so why don't we get it done now?'


And on a possible clash with his former stable-mate, he also commented,

'If Mayweather doesn't want it then I think Manny Pacquiao is a great name. We trained together and there is a great storyline there.”

'The Kell Brook fight will always be there. At the moment, I want to catch the right guys - the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao.

'How long are they going to be in the sport for and at the top of their game?'


An interesting final comment don’t you think!
