Golden Boy targeting Khan Vs Mayweather!

Amir Khan with Golden Boy CEO Robert Schaeffer.
The Daily Star reports that Golden Boy is again talking about a fight between former light-welterweight champion Amir Khan and the No.1 P4P fighter in the world Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather.
Prior to his loss against Lamont Peterson, Khan was being promoted  by Golden Boy as Mayweather's next opponent. But, now that he has lost againt Peterson, nobody can really take Khan calling Mayweather out seriously. However, Golden Boy still believe that Khan will be the fighter that will be the first to cause Mayweather any trouble.

"Assuming all goes well and he wins against Peterson, he then moves up to welterweight. But I am not so sure if the first fight will be against Floyd, because at that weight it may not be the smartest thing to do. In a perfect world, I'd like Amir to have one fight at that weight before fighting Mayweather - but if that fight presents itself we would discuss it."

Most fans know that Khan is nowhere near the level that Mayweather is, but they also understand that there is no one else for Mayweather to face. There is the Ortiz-Berto II winner but neither of them would attract as much attention from the United Kingdom as Khan would. And that's what Mayweather is all about... The money, and bigger fighters attract bigger amounts of money.

Both fighters are fighting in the next month and both of their opponents will provide a tough test. Mayweather faces light-middleweight world champ Miguel Cotto and Khan faces light-welterweight champion Lamont Peterson.

Providing that both win their next fights then the fight we could be seeing at the end of the year or maybe the start of next year is Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Vs Amir 'King' Khan.
