As expected, Amir Khan will keep talking trash until Floyd Mayweather grant him his much requested match.
However, that is definitely not happening anytime soon as Floyd is set to battle fellow American boxer Andre Berto on September 12 to fulfill his final match in his contract with Show Time.
Also, Floyd is already contemplating retirement and it looks like he is no longer to finish his career with at least 50 fights. But, Freddie Roach believes that Mayweather will want to close his career with at least 50 wins.
“I don’t know where Mayweather’s going right now,” Roach told George Gigney of Boxing News . “I don’t think he’ll stop at 49 fights, I think he’ll fight to 50. I’m hoping that he promotes himself, maybe if he does he can make more money.”
With his history of cherry-picking opponents, Floyd might not look for a hard fight to close out his career. This means a rematch with Manny Pacquiao or a match with Amir Khan. That is why the British boxer was fuming once again with the idea of him not getting a shot against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“How can this guy say he’s the best ever when he’s not really the best ever? Look, Muhammad Ali fought the best fighters ever,” Khan said via Opening Round . “He tried to say he’s better than Muhammad Ali and he’s the best ever. He’s not giving the fight fans what they want.”
“He knows Amir Khan is more than a big name and skill to take to beat him and I bring a lot of revenue to the table being the UK, India, Dubai, Pakistan revenue somewhere in those places Mayweather isn’t so popular,” Khan angrily added.
