Amir Khan wants to fight Mayweather vs Ortiz winner

Amir "King" Khan recently won against Zab Judah in a match where many believed will be a testing ground for Khan's soft chin. Amir's only loss was against Breidis Prescott in September 2009 via a shocking 1st round knockout where a solid heavy blow by his opponent hit his chin.

If given the chance to fight the winner of the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight, Amir would surely step up because he knows he has a huge chance to win against any of them. With celebrated trainer Freddie Roach on his side, Amir Khan is already tagged as one of the prime boxers in the light-welterweight division - arguably next to Bradley.

Undefeated American Timothy Bradley is still in front of Amir Khan in the ratings. He currently holds the WBC and WBO belts while Amir Khan is holding the WBA and IBF versions.

Khan is not afraid to fight Tim Bradley and he knows there is a huge possibility that they will clash later this year or early 2012.

Amir, a compatriot of Filipino Congressman and Boxing Star Manny Pacquiao (see: Pacquiao vs Marquez), is humble enough to say that he is not yet on the level of either Mayweather or Pacquiao. He wants to fight Mayweather next but he knows he is not yet as popular as Pacquiao. If he is not given the chance by Golden Boy Promotions to fight the undefeated Floyd Jr, he wants to fight Bradley to unify the belts and be hailed as the number 1 in his division.

If a Mayweather vs Khan fight will happen, it will surely be at the 147-lb division. Mayweather has no problem in this weight because he has been winning championship belts at the welterweight but Khan will be tested at this division.

On September 17, the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight will finally happen and most fans are already excited to watch the fight dubbed as Star Power: Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz which will be televised on HBO-PPV. If you check the tale of the tape, there's no significant difference between the two. Floyd is expected to win this fight but anything can happen against "Vicious" Victor Ortiz.
