Amir Khan: Floyd Mayweather is Scared of Me

Amir Khan: Floyd Mayweather is Scared of Me

Britain`s Amir Khan took the high road Wednesday after being snubbed by unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather for a third time in quest of a high-profile Las Vegas welterweight showdown.

“I’d fight Mayweather any time. But Mayweather is scared,” said Khan, “One thing about Amir Khan is, he’s never afraid of anybody.” Amir Khan said as quoted by BBC.

Mayweather, 38, announced Tuesday that he would fight countryman Andre Berto next month in what the 48-0 champion has declared would be his final fight, although many doubt he will settle for retiring at the same iconic record as the late heavyweight Rocky Marciano without taking a chance at 50-0.

But first, Mayweather must get past Berto, and that, Khan also warned, is something that is not a sure thing. “I wish my stablemate Andre Berto and trainer Virgil Hunter the very best of luck in the fight,” Khan said. “I`ve seen how hard Andre trains and works and know that he is ready to give Floyd a very tough night.”

Khan has won 31 of his 34 fights, and was last beaten by Danny Garcia in July last year. “I’m disappointed not to have got the fight for what is the third time after being a frontrunner,” khan said.

Many have criticized Mayweather`s choice as too easy a foe, with Berto having dropped three of his past six fights.
