Khan vs Mayweather Could be Richest Fight in History

Amir Khan’s probable bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr could be the richest in history and could take place in the US in “six to nine months”, the Briton has said.

But first, the current WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion, will most likely fight American Lamont Peterson in a fight that is tentatively scheduled for December 10.

Speaking about the fight with Mayweather, Khan told Guardian, “It can. And listen I’m ready to fight [him]. I can see a lot of things in my armoury that would beat Floyd – he will take a lot of shots and he will get beat. Floyd Mayweather is beatable – I think definitely he’s beatable. The fight will happen definitely – it’ll happen within the next nine months – six to nine months.

Amir Khan Vowed to Send Floyd Mayweather into Retirement

Amir Khan has vowed to send Floyd Mayweather Jr into retirement if the two can finalise the details on a welterweight showdown next year.

WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion Khan confirmed on Tuesday that Mayweather has verbally agreed to a deal, having been called out by the Brit for months.

And Khan feels that he will be facing the unbeaten American, who beat Victor Ortiz via knockout last month, just as he is beginning to show signs of decline. Khan claims that Mayweather was far from his slippery, elusive best against Ortiz before he scored the decisive knockdown.

Khan will Fight Matthew Hatton before Mayweather at Welterweight

It was thought previously that IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan would be facing a quality welterweight like number #2 ranked WBO contender Kell Brook in Khan’s warm-up fight at welterweight (147 lbs) before possibly getting a money fight against unbeaten WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. next year.

However, it looks as if Khan is going to safe route by targeting fringe contender Matthew Hatton (42-5-2, 16 KO’s) instead of someone who can punch and has good speed.
