Broner wants Khan after beating John Molina on SaturdayGetty

Amir Khan has responded to Adrien Broner's challenge, insisting he would love to take on the outspoken American in 2015.

Broner claimed his third straight victory since losing his WBA welterweight title in 2013 when he eased past John Molina in Las Vegas on Saturday (7 March).

The 25-year-old went on to name Khan as a potential opponent post-match and further taunted the Bolton-born fighter via social media on Tuesday, throwing out the possibility of a showdown between the two as early as this month.

Broner posted a message on his Instagram account reading: "No disrespect to Virgil Hunter [Khan's trainer], he is a great coach and I got endless love for him, but me and Amir Khan can fight at the end of this month.

"I haven't taken any punishment, I am back in the gym and ready to make a fool out of anybody."

Khan, who last fought in December when he eased past Devon Alexander, has wasted little time in taking Broner up on his challenge, tweeting: "Would love to fight Adrien Broner next! #KhanvsBroner – let's make it happen."

Khan, 27, spent most of 2014 vying for a meeting with Floyd Mayweather.

But with Mayweather's attention now firmly focused on his long-awaited showdown with Manny Pacquiao on 2 May, Khan has been left without an obvious opponent with his potential fight with Kell Brook unlikely to take place until at least the summer.

Broner, meanwhile, christened himself the heir to Mayweather's throne in amassing 27-straight wins before being stopped in emphatic fashion by Marcos Maidana in December 2013, with the Argentine going on to win two shots at the unbeaten American.

Mayweather himself proposed a fight between Khan and Broner on the undercard of his first meeting with Maidana in May 2014, telling the Brit a victory over his protégé Broner would earn him a fight later on. Nothing arose from the proposal, however, with Khan defeating Luis Collazo on that card while Broner beat Carlos Molina.
