Amir Khan Retains WBC Title, Hoping For Chance To Fight Mayweather

share on:

Amir Khan has retained his WBC Silver welterweight title after a unanimous victory over American boxer Devon Alexander.

Khan dominated early against Alexander in Las Vegas, and kept strong to win a unanimous victory.

After the win, Khan spoke of his wish to battle Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“I really believe I’ve earned my shot against the best boxer in the world and that’s Mayweather,” said Khan.

“He is the ideal fight for me. It would be a game of chess, but I would be too skilful. I have the skill and movement to beat him. He will not be able to hurt me.

“I feel better now than I did when I was 25. I’m dedicated to the sport and I know there’s a few years left in me. I’m going to try and force that fight with Mayweather.”
