Following his victory against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, it is reported Floyd Mayweather's next bout against Amir Khan is all but agreed.

Mayweather has only boxed two out of a contracted six bouts with Television channel Showtime, which suggests he is not ready to hang up his gloves just yet.

The 36-year-old made a minimum of $41.5million from his last fight with Alvarez, and the boxer and broadcaster will be keen to make sure that the next bout is also a high-profile fight.

Amir Khan, meanwhile, is trying to rebuild his career following a controversial defeat to Lamont Peterson and a shock fourth round knockout by Danny Garcia.

After that fight, the man from Bolton sacked his trainer of four-years, Freddie Roach, to work with Virgil Hunter.

Since changing trainer Khan is unbeaten in two fights, stopping Carlos Molina in the tenth and winning on points against Julio Diaz.

A fight against Mayweather will once again put Khan back in the spotlight in America.
