Adrien Broner uploaded a video to his Instagram account on Wednesday showing him in talks with Amir Khan over FaceTime to set up a fight between the pair.

Khan is expected to turn down the opportunity to fight domestic rival Kell Brook at Wembley this summer as he looks toward another fight in the USA at the end of May.
While various names have been linked with fighting him, Broner has made no secret of his desire to get in the ring with the Brit and released a video showing him in talks with Khan over FaceTime.
‘The Problem’ is heard telling his rival: “Tell him to make the fight man, let’s get this money!”
It remains unclear as to what weight level the pair will clash although a catch-weight situation could be the solution, but that would arguably be detrimental to Khan’s bigger ambition of facing either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao after their super-fight on May 2 in Las Vegas.
Khan has campaigned for the bout with Mayweather for years to no avail, and it is questionable as to what a win over Broner would do to aid his cause in landing a shot at the unbeaten American superstar.
Much will depend on the outcome of May 2, but Khan will be highly fancied to look good in a win over Broner and so it remains to be seen whether or not it will be enough to finally catch the attention of the big names in the welterweight division.
