Mayweather would love to fight Khan at Wembley

Amir Khan Floyd Mayweather Jr Zab JudahBy John F. McKenna (McJack): The guardian.co.uk reported that Floyd Mayweather Jr (41-0, 25 KO’s) would love to fight World Boxing Association (WBA) Light Welterweight Champion Amir Khan (25-1, 17 KO’s) at Wembley Arena if he gets by IBF Light Welterweight Champion Zab Judah (41-6-2NC, 28 KO’s) Saturday night.

Floyd Mayweather Jr handles reporters the same way he handles evading an opponent’s left hook in the ring, with ease. Floyd is a master at both. He is a natural.

Mayweather said that he would fight Khan next year in London if Amir gets by Judah at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

“I would love to come to Wembley and fight.” Mayweather said. Floyd is the finest pure boxer to come along in decades and each time he fights he puts on a clinic on how to adapt to his opponent. No fighter has ever been better able to analyze and dissect his opponents than Mayweather.

“The British fans would love to see me fight Amir Khan and I’m pretty sure the Filipino fans would want to see me fight Pacquiao. The American fans would love to see me fight anybody.”

Floyd was not tempted to pick the winner of the Khan – Judah fight. “It will all come down to who wants it more, who is the better fighter and who has the better chin. I fought Judah at 147 pounds. Both are explosive fighters. It’s a good fight to watch.”

Mayweather would not be drawn into commenting about his uncle Roger Mayweather’s comments that Khan is using steroids without any evidence to support such claims. “It’s not my place to comment on what Roger said about Amir Khan and steroids. All I will say is that if you are facing Floyd Mayweather, you got to take the test.”

Floyd will also not budge from his contention that he is the biggest draw in boxing and it is true that he has put up some very impressive Pay Per View numbers.

Mayweather also contends that no fighter has ever stretched him to the limit and he is probably right. He tries to be polite about it buy it is obvious that he does not think Khan will push him to the limit either.

Part of what makes a fighter a great fighter is cockiness and arrogance. All the great fighters from the past had a certain amount of arrogance. To be successful as a fighter you have to have the belief that you are superior to all of your contemporaries. Floyd has those attributes in abundance.
