British boxer Amir Kahn may finally get his wish of taking on Floyd Mayweather after the American said that he has one more fight left in him after beating Manny Pacquiao this weekend, according to The Guardian.

Mayweather has already indicated that he will be vacating all five of his titles over the coming weeks after winning what many are billing as the biggest fight in boing history.
And after finally overcoming Pacquaio, who many had accused him of avoiding over the years to preserve his unbeaten record, he has stated that he will enter the ring one more time in September to see out the last bout of his massive six-fight deal with Showtime and CBS, stating that it will be his last before hanging up his gloves.
“I want to give other fighters a chance,” he said.
“I’m not greedy. I’m fortunate to be a champion in two weight classes right now. I’m the undisputed welterweight champion. I have the WBC and WBA belt at super welterweight. I have the WBO, WBA and WBC at 147. It’s time to let other fighters fight for the belts.”
It is yet unknown who Mayweather’s final opponent will be, but Amir Kahn will undoubtedly be the early favourite, having courted the showstopper for years.
However, it has been hinted that Mayweather will fight a rematch with Miguel Cotto, but that will perhaps represent a challenge to great for him to see out his career undefeated.
