Amir Khan has labelled Floyd Mayweather as scared for failing to commit to a future fight following his victory over Devon Alexander last weekend, the Daily Express reports.

Khan made his Las Vegas debut last weekend where he overcame Alexander on his home turf and is eager to take on Mayweather before it gets too late.
But the welterweight may be ignored by WBC and WBA champion Mayweather, who says he only has two fights left and wants a bout with Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather even taunted Khan by saying: “No one knows who Amir Khan is.”
But Khan has hit back, claiming that he can tempt the American across the pond for a sell out bout at Wembley Stadium.
“I want the fight, but is Floyd going to take the fight? Is Floyd going to give me that chance? That’s something we’re all waiting to hear from Floyd Mayweather.
“I’ve been asking for the fight for the last two or three years. Now he needs to come back to the press and say, ‘I want the fight with Amir Khan’.
“I know I’m touching distance away from that super fight. I think I’ve proven myself many times and I think this time I’ve proved myself in the biggest way so he has to take the fight. What else do I have to do?
“I have a bigger name than (Marcos) Maidana did or Victor Ortiz. I’m one of the biggest names in boxing.
“I know if I can bring Floyd Mayweather to Britain then I’ll sell out Wembley Stadium. How big does he need my name to be?
“I think these are little excuses. I’m sure people realise that. It seems to me he doesn’t want to fight me. I have the speed, dexterity, accuracy, movement, power; I think it’s something that he doesn’t really want to mix with.”
