Lightbulb Khan wants to fight winner of Mayweather-Ortiz in the UK next year

Amir Khan, perhaps getting a bit ahead of himself considering his impending fight with Zab Judah, has stated he would like to fight the winner of Mayweather vs Ortiz in the UK next year. He seems to think PBF will win, and stated that although seemingly hated in America, Floyd is appreciated in the UK, so might be willing to agree to such a bout. Queue all the Pactards saying it's a set up excuse for PBF to duck their fighter!

He's more likely to fight the loser.

Anybody would say they wanted the winner of that fight. Any boxer in the same weight division would say those exact words. Why do people hate on Khan for having some ambition? Jesus Christ!!!

Is this guy not supposed to wait for Bradley, take care of matters there and then and then move wherever he wants to? This is a messy time in boxing - one 140pounder moves up and becomes a WW titlist and thusly finds a big money fight with Mayweather... Now , every 140pounder titlist wants to make that money that swiftly. S***!

Wait for Bradley?

Why the hell would he wait for that bowling ball head after he declined a great offer by Khan.

If Bradley don't want to fight, then Khan can fight whoever he wants.

man, Lazarus, with all due respect, why would Khan be in the best position to fighjt mayweather next? Because there's nobody else b'sides manny who is not fighting him? BS, you know it's BS... He has to negotiate with G Shaw and find a deal to prove who's the best of the 140 pounders before moving up and fight 4 a new quest. That's what hatton did, why shouldn't Khan? Damn!

Agreed.

Bradley clearly ducked the fight and even stated that he didn't want the fight now because losing would damage his chances of a fight with Pac-Man or Floyd.

He said in 12 months time. Why can't Amir want to be able to fight a guy like Mayweather?

I don't quite understand that. How would finding a deal prove he's the best of the 140 pounders?

Facts are, he turned down a GREAT offer. He's now sitting on the side-lines fighting nobody till potentially the end of the year.

If Khan beats Judah, he can fight whoever if Bradley doesn't fight him. Waiting for Bradley isn't what Amir will do. Why the hell should he do that?

Khan said he'd like to fight Mayweather sometime next year. This probably means in 12 months time, or more. That's plenty of time to fight Bradley and a couple of others after. It's not like he's saying he wants him next.

Not to mention, in past interviews he's always made it clear he'd prefer to take the fight at a time that could benefit him. In other words, a time when he's matured into a strong welterweight, whilst Mayweather hopefully would have declined a bit.

Sounds pretty sensible to me.

khan should do it like this, judah-bradley(december)-tune up 147 in England to get used to the weight- look for a titlefight vs a easy eurochamp in the summer, floyd in november or floyd directly in the summer.
If he is truly badass he goes: judah-bradley-maidana2-mayweather.
