Amir Khan capable of ending Mayweather’s 42-fight unbeaten run: Haye
London: Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye reckons that fellow Brit pugilist Amir Khan is the only man in the world who can end American Floyd Mayweather’s 42-fight unbeaten run in the boxing ring.
Khan faces Lamont Peterson in Washington on Saturday looking to defend his WBA and IBF world light-welterweight titles.
The 25-year-old has set his sights on a move up to welterweight in 2012 with an eagerly anticipated fight against Mayweather on the cards.
“I think the only guy out there that can beat Mayweather is Khan. It’s a bold statement I know, but other than him, I don’t think anybody has a chance against Mayweather,” the Sun quoted Haye, as saying.
“He’s young and fresh so if anyone has got the physical tools to push Mayweather, I think he can,” he added.
Mayweather is the current WBC welterweight champion.
He is also rated as the best pound for pound boxer in the world by most sporting news and boxing websites.
