Khan to miss out on Mayweather: American looks elsewhere.
After defeating Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas on Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather responded to Amir Khan’s calls for a fight and taunted the British star.
Despite initial VISA issues, Khan was able to attend the fight at the MGM Grand this weekend and was quoted as saying that he still wanted to fight Mayweather and was confident that he would beat him given signs of ageing in the American’s performance.
Coupled with Khan’s footwork and hand speed, the Brit believes he would become the first fighter to defeat Mayweather who extended his record to 47-0 after beating Maidana for a second time.
However, despite respectfully insisting that Khan was a good fighter, Mayweather went on to taunt his rival by claiming that while Khan was an amateur and later suffered knock-out losses to the likes of Breidis Prescott and Danny Garcia, he has been a champion throughout the entire period.
Although some will argue that Mayweather has avoided fights, particularly with Manny Pacquiao, in order to preserve his unbeaten status, the welterweight king insists that he continues to call the shots and will not be rushed into making any decisions.
Nevertheless, ahead of the fight with Maidana, he revealed that he planned on retiring next year with two fights left on his contract with Showtime.
