Should Floyd Mayweather Jr come through his September 14 ‘super fight’ with Saul Alvarez one man his father Floyd Mayweather snr wants next is Britain’s Amir Khan- because he wants to see Khan’s a** whipped.
Mayweather Jr, who is unbeaten in 44 professional fights, is the undisputed pound for pound No.1 boxer and Floyd Snr does not hold back when he was asked who he wanted his son to fight next. “If there’s one fighter whose a** I want Floyd to whip it’s Amir Khan – he’s no outstanding fighter and as long as he stays here he’ll keep getting his a** whipped,” Floyd Snr told the Daily Star.
Khan fights again in December and if he is triumphant he could get his wish and face Floyd early next year, its a fight Khan often dreams about.
“When you are young the dream is to be world champion and now the dream is to fight and beat Mayweather,” said Khan.
“Once you beat him you become the best pound-for-pound fighter around and that’s what everyone aims for.
“Maybe I got knocked out or didn’t perform well in some fights, but my style would be exciting to watch against him.
