Amir Khan has played up the idea of facing former stablemate Manny Pacquiao now that Floyd Mayweather has hung up his gloves ‘for good’.

The British boxer said he would love to face Pacquiao, maintaining that Mayweather had snubbed him because he was scared of losing.

"I think Mayweather is scared of (my) speed," Khan said in an interview.

"He wants to keep his unbeaten record. He doesn't want to finish with a tough fight.

"[If he comes back] I still don't think he'll fight me. I think he doesn't want to be beaten.

"But I think he just wants the undefeated record, and that's the reason he won't fight me," he added."

He then added: "A Pacquiao fight is something I would love to have."


Meanwhile, Roger Federer has confirmed he has no plans to retire just yet, despite having lost in the US Open final to Novak Djokovic.

The Swiss legend will instead continue, having told expectant fans: ‘I’ll see you guys next year’.

"I'll see you guys next year.

"I'm very pleased with where my game's at. I feel like it's moving in the right direction."

In F1, the Singapore Grand Prix could be cancelled, as plumes of smoke continue to descend on the Yas Marina Circuit.

Smoke from forest fires in nearby Indonesia is the cause of the problem, creating unhealthy levels of air pollution. That could spell trouble for drivers, including Britain’s Lewis Hamilton.


Lastly, it’s across to UFC, where Nick Diaz has been banned for five years and fined $165,000 for testing positive for marijuana.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed down the punishment after Diaz was found with the drug in his system after his fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 183.
