Amir targets Pretty Boy
Amir Khan has once again stated that he believes he is ready to move up a weight and take on Floyd Mayweather.
The 25-year-old meets Danny Garcia in the early hours of Sunday with the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine light-welterweight titles all at stake in Las Vegas, but Khan has hinted that this could be his last fight in the division as he sees his future at welterweight. The Bolton-born star originally planned to move up a weight earlier this year, but his defeat to Lamont Peterson set him back as he still felt he had something to prove. Moving up a division will inevitably start talk of a potential fight against Mayweather - something Khan has set his sights on in the future. "This is my chance to prove once and for all that I'm the best in the division," he said. "I want to be in big world title fights and in big fights with the likes of Mayweather. To do that, I need to be up in that division. "Watching Mayweather's last fight (a points win against Miguel Cotto), coupled with the way I've been training, I think I'm ready."
