Amir Khan has made it clear he is willing to cancel his fight with Chris Algieri at the end of this month to fight Adrien Broner.
Khan is currently scheduled to fight Algieri in New York on May 29, but has repeatedly made claims that he won’t fight the former kickboxer if a deal with Broner can be thrashed out.
Talks were held between the two camps last month but no agreements were made. However, a deal may still be made late in the day.
Broner has been saying that Khan’s decision to fight Algieri over him shows that the Brit is scared to step into the ring with him. Khan told Broner in a video meeting at Floyd Mayweather's battle with Manny Pacquiao that he is still willing to fight him.
‘'I'm ready, I'll fight you anytime. Listen bro, I will pull out of this next fight against Chris Algieri if you take the fight [with me]. Let's do it. You're not ready for me. You know you're going to get it," Khan told Broner, according to reports.
Members of the Khan camp have reiterated the claims of their fighter that Broner has talked a lot of trash but doesn’t want to sit down and agree terms.
"Obviously the Broner one was a fight we really wanted before we decided on Algieri but despite a lot of talking from the Broner side they didn't seem to want to make it in the end."
Hoping Khan remains distracted
The Algieri camp will be hoping that Khan remains distracted leading up to the fight, which will give him a greater chance of causing an upset in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
