All hopes of a Floyd Mayweather vs Amir Khan fight were supposedly extinguished when Mayweather chose Marcos Maidana to fight on May 3 instead of him.

However, boxing fans might want to listen now as a potential Superfight between Mayweather and Khan could still happen in the future, as the American posted on twitter earlier today that he would fight the Bolton-born fighter if he was victorious in a fight with Maidana's victim Broner.

'Money' Mayweather tweeted: "I don't have an easy fight on May 3, 2014, so I can't over look @ChinoMaidana but @AmirKingKhan, if you and @AdrienBroner end up fighting each other on my show and you win (which you won't)... I'll fight you."

Despite Amir Khan topping Mayweather's own polls on who he should face, the unbeaten world champion still went against the general public and picked the opponent that Amir Khan himself beat the Argentine in December 2010.

The Brit seemed riled by the decision, stating that Mayweather cherry picks his opponents, with the five-weight world champion seemingly being swayed into going against the public after an impressive win from Marcos Maidana over Adrien Broner.

"Mayweather says he needs an easy fight and fans want to see a knock out so maybe that's the reason he doesn't want fight me and wants Maidana,"

With Khan having to find a Plan B after putting his career on hold to fight Mayweather, he commented about facing the 24-year old on Sky Sports' ringside, saying:

"A few names have been put to me - even someone like Broner would be a great fight for me.

"The fight would probably be in America and possibly be on a Floyd card as well. But I have a contract with Showtime, so I have my own television deal in the US.

"More than likely the fight will probably be in America. There are a few names, I'm going to sit down with Golden Boy and my team."

Amir Khan last fought in April with a narrow points win over Julio Diaz in Sheffield, giving the fighter his 28th win with a record of 28-3-0.
