Khan Not Ready for Floyd Bout

Amir Khan has insisted that he is not ready to fight Floyd Mayweather just yet. The WBA World Light Welterweight Champion would like one more title defence before facing Floyd and feels he doesn't have enough experience to face the American.

Khan successfully defended his title against Marcos Maidana with a thrilling point’s victory in Las Vegas last week and has said he wants to unify the division.

Khan told BBC Radio: "It's a possibility in the future. A lot of people say I want to fight Mayweather next.

"I want to fight Mayweather in 12 months. It gives me time to mature and to get more experience.

"Hopefully around April I want to get one more fight in before I unify the division."

Khan also stated he would like the fight on home soil. "Before the end of 2011 or even in England at the beginning of 2012," he added.

"The interest would be huge in England. I want to bring the biggest fights over here. To get Mayweather to fight in England would be a huge success." Best Blogger Tips
