Khan focus on July 14
Amir Khan has said there is no chance he will under-estimate unbeaten WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia on July 14.
The Bolton fighter was expected to fight Lamont Peterson in a rematch of their controversial December showdown to win back his IBF and WBA titles but the American failed a drugs test. Now, Khan must focus his attention on 24-year-old Garcia in what is likely to be his last fight at 140lbs before realising his dream of a bout against unbeaten superstar Floyd 'Money' Mayweather. "There's a lot of talk about a fight with Floyd Mayweather, but I'm taking each fight at a time," Khan told Sky Sports. "Garcia's a great champion and I want to take care of him. He's another unbeaten fighter who I'm fighting, now hopefully I'm going to take care of him and then move up to 147. "Then maybe I'll have one more fight at 147 before I go on to the big, big names like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, but like I said it's a step at a time, I'm not looking too far ahead." Khan said he had not been deterred by his Washington setback against Peterson and still had the appetite to get back to the top of the sport. He added: "I've got ambitions in life to face the best, like Floyd Mayweather, but it's a waiting game at the moment, I've got Garcia in front of me at the moment and I'm 100 per cent focused on him."
