Amir Khan plays down Mayweather speculation

Published Add your comment

Amir Khan has dismissed reports that he has cancelled his fight with Devon Alexander in order to pursue the pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather.

Khan is set to fight Alexander for the IBF Welterweight title on December 7th, although a venue for the bout is still to be decided.

The 26-year-old from Bolton is currently in his training camp in San Francisco, getting himself in tip-top condition to attempt to bring the world title back to Britain.

The last time Khan was in action was back in April of this year, when he bounced back from defeat to Danny Garcia to claim victory over Julio Diaz with a unanimous points decision.

A statement from Khan's camp, via Sky Sports, read: "Team Khan would like to dispel recent reports that Amir Khan has pulled out of a potential match-up against Devon Alexander on December 7th, taking up a fight against Floyd Mayweather in May of next year instead."

Whether a potential clash between Mayweather and Khan will happen, only time will tell. However, the 2004 Olympic silver medalist is purely focused on Alexander before the end of this year.

Should he secure an impressive victory, then a clash with 'Money' might just be waiting around the corner in 2014.
