In an utterly brilliant showing, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) unanimously outclassed an inferior Robert Guerrero on May 4 and pocketed $32 million for the mismatch.
Comparatively, flattened by a left hook in the fourth and staggered by the same punch in the eighth, 10th and 11th rounds, Khan (28-3, 19 KOs) escaped from the squared circle last month by outscoring Mexican Julio Diaz.
“We are still in negotiations with Mayweather and it could be next or one fight after that,” Khan, 26, told Sky Sports. “If we could bring it to the UK it would be amazing and give the UK fans the chance to see a huge fight. To get Mayweather to come to the UK would be massive. It would be the biggest fight ever in the UK and I am really going to try for that. An announcement could be made in a couple of weeks or a couple of months.”
Recently ranked the highest-earning American athlete for the second consecutive year by Sports Illustrated, Mayweather is a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic.
Meanwhile, Khan is a human chandelier capable of getting floored at any moment with one decisive shot to the kisser.
Although one of the most youthful British world champs ever at the age of 22, “King Khan” is simply an overrated prizefighter with a fragile chin.
Should the reigning pound-for-pound king ever throw fists with the 2004 Olympic silver medalist, Floyd Mayweather would badly embarrass Amir Khan in “the biggest fight ever in the UK.”by
