Amir Khan ready to take on Floyd Mayweather

London: British boxer Amir Khan has said that he is ready to take on unbeaten ring great Floyd Mayweather next summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Bolton fighter Khan, the WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion, is planning only one more fight in his current division before stepping up to join the superstar likes of Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao at welterweight.

Khan, however, doubts whether Mayweather would relish taking him on in a super fight next year.

Khan said: “We want to jump in there with the best and beat the best. Every young fighter has ambitions and I am really confident I have the style, speed and power to beat him. I also have the best team around me.”

“If the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight doesn`t happen I am happy to step in there - but that is if Floyd will take the fight. At the moment he is saying he doesn`t want to fight me,” he added.

Mayweather, 34, a five-weight world champion, is unbeaten in 41 fights. He is scheduled to step into the ring for the first time in 16 months when he faces Victor Ortiz in a fortnight.
