Amir Khan
Khan produced a stunning showing 13 months on from his last bout.

Amir Khan is confident of beating Floyd Mayweather Jr but is unwilling to delay announcing his next opponent in order to wait to agree a deal with the unbeaten American.

Khan produced a dominant display to defeat Luis Collazo on the undercard of Mayweather's points win over Marcos Maidana, who was originally chosen over the Brit for the fight.

The 27 year old has once again stated he wants to face Mayweather, who stretched his professional record to 46-0 in Las Vegas, however is unwilling to be kept waiting.

"Now I'm back in business I need another meaningful fight in the autumn," Khan stated. "I want to get it sorted in principle in the next couple of weeks.

"I think people have been warning Floyd about my speed. He is a great boxer but as he gets older and slows down a little I think he knows I can give him problems, being as quick as I am."

"I will feel unfulfilled if the fight doesn't happen," he added. "You always want to take on the best.

"Not only that but I think they can give the people what they want, namely Floyd's first defeat. It feels that the public have grown tired of him, even the Americans. When I talk to taxi drivers here or people come up to me at dinner, it seems they hate him now."

If a bout with Mayweather Jr does not materialise then Khan could bid for a rematch against Danny Garcia or Lamont Peterson while a meeting with Manny Pacquiao or Timothy Bradley has also been mentioned.

However, Khan has completely ruled out facing fellow-Brit Kell Brook should the Sheffield-fighter's meeting with Shawn Porter fall through.

"I don't believe Kell will take that fight," he said. "Not only is Porter tough and dangerous but Brook has a lot of confidence issues.

"A source close to his camp tells me that Kell keeps asking if this is the right time for him, if he's ready for such a difficult fight. It's like he's already lost that fight in his head."
