Stick with TV: Floyd Mayweather isn’t coming out of retirement to fight Amir Khan

Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) has been calling out Floyd Mayweather Jr (50-0, 26 KOs) since quite sometime.

The case remained the same even after Mayweather retired, with Khan expressing desire to trade punches with the American legend last month.

But if Mayweather’s words are anything to go by, the fight is never ever going to materialize.

“For the last five years all I have been hearing is Amir Khan running his mouth off that he deserves a shot against me.” Mayweather was quoted as saying by Daily Star.

“It’s nothing new for me. Every fighter out there wants a chance against me because they know, win or lose, it’s going to be a big pay day for them.

“I have always maintained I am nobody’s meal ticket. I only set up fights with fighters that deserve it and who are going to be part of a great fight for fans.”

Khan, who is currently participating in British TV show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! is slated to return to the ring early next year. But, Mayweather insists he should ‘stick with TV.’

“He wants to fight the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and now I hear is running away from a few snakes and spiders. Please! He needs to get real and stick with TV.”
