Amir Khan wants Floyd Mayweather to come out of retirement for a second time to fight him.
Khan called the unbeaten pound-for-pound king out as he eyes his next opponent for his first fight since being beaten by Canelo Alvarez in May 2016.
The Bolton pugilist has now returned to the gym and is aiming high for his comeback, reports the Manchester Evening News.
The Bolton boxer wants that fight to be against Mayweather, who recently retired after defeating Conor McGregor in an one-sided mismatch in August to extend his unbeaten record to 50-0.
Khan has keen for a fight with Mayweather for a number of years, and despite the American’s retirement, he hopes that now is the time for the pair to finally face off with each other.
“Floyd is a great fighter. I just have something he’s not faced, speed. Floyd knows I’m not the one to back down,” said Khan.
“It’s been a year I’ve not fought due to hand surgery. I’m ready to make my comeback at 30 years of age. Say what you like Canelo was getting outboxed. I was winning on [the] cards. He had power and caught me with a huge right. That’s boxing.
