Amir Khan hopes the prospect of fighting at Wembley Stadium could help secure a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Khan was inspired as an 80,000 capacity crowd watched Carl Froch defeat George Groves on Saturday, in the biggest fight held on British shores for four decades.

The 27-year-old is chasing a clash with Mayweather Jr after being overlooked as the unbeaten-American's last opponent in May, and is optimistic the carrot of competing at the national stadium could be enough to clinch a deal.

"The biggest stage in boxing is the MGM arena [in Las] Vegas, but after that I think it has to be Wembley, it's huge," Khan told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I think everyone talks about the fights at Wembley, now Carl Froch and George Groves have done that here.

"Let's try and force Floyd Mayweather to come to England and fight me here. I am going to try and force that upon Golden Boy Promotions, Al Haymon my manager and adviser and I am going to tell him 'look how big this event here is in Wembley, why can't we do a show like this?

"Khan v Mayweather, I think it would be amazing. We'd sell it out, it's a fight that everyone wants to see, two fighters that everyone knows about so let's get that done. I've had a taste for it now and I'd love to fight in that ring. I'd love to be here it would be great for the British fans."

The Briton impressively defeated Luis Collazo on his welterweight debut on the undercard of Mayweather Jr's win over Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas last month.

Mayweather Jr has continued to dodge a meeting with Khan, even talking up the possibility of facing Maidana in a rematch later this year. The 37-year-old is three fights into his six-bout Showtime Television contract.

In the hope of drumming up interest ahead of a perspective fight potentially in 2015, Khan is set to make a public appearance alongside Mayweather Jr later this month when the latter travels to Bolton as part of a six-date British tour.
