IBF and WBA champion Amir Khan has said that he would jump at chance to face Mexican legend Erik Morales.

Khan, who recently defeated Zab Judah, would like the match up should the veteran win his upcoming WBC title tilt against tough South American Lucas Matthysse.

At present his IBF mandatory challenger is Lamont Peterson but the Brit isn’t convinced that the Tennessee man wants to challenge him.

"We offered a fight against Peterson about six months ago and they have always turned us down," Khan told Press Association Sport.

"They never wanted to fight and now he is the mandatory, we will see how much he wants it.

"I’m ready to fight everyone in the 140-pound division, it is just that they don’t want to fight me.

"I’m thinking only one more fight, but I want to make it a big fight. We are still trying for Bradley and we hope he signs.

"If Morales becomes the new WBC champion, I’d love to take that fight because I just want to keep on collecting titles.

"Morales said he would fight me if he thinks it is the right time, and maybe it is the right time."
