After countless attempts of trying to get Floyd Mayweather Jr.
to fight him, English boxer Amir Khan says he is no longer interested in pursuing Floyd Mayweather but instead, would just like to focus in his upcoming bout with Chris Algieri.
Opening Round reported that Khan no longer wish to make a push against Mayweather.
“There has been a lot of talk that it will be September when Mayweather is back in the ring again,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.
“I am not going to chase it like I used to chase it.
I am going to keep on fighting and if it comes, it comes.” “I want to focus on Chris Algieri right now but I really think it can happen.
I can work around [Ramadan].
I am spending more time in the gym before and after training camps, so when I join the camps I am half-way there.
I am happy at this weight and feel comfortable.
I think I can do the September fight if it happens.
It gives me enough time to do my Ramadan and fasting – and then go into training camps for nine to 10 weeks,” he added.
It is fair to say that Amir Khan is doing the right thing since Chris Algieri is also gearing up for him and respects his accolades.
He shared his mantra and he seems very hungry for a victory so he can climb the ladder.
“Amir is a champion, a former champion.
I’m a former champion, a champion myself.
That will and desire to always want to win is there.
There’s a lot of questions that are being asked.
You have to win this fight.
Of course, you have to win this fight.
You have to win to get the big fights,” he said.
