Khan’s big mouth costs him Mayweather fight
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has ruled out fighting England’s Amir Khan next. In May, Mayweather earned in excess of US$220 million for beating Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision in the richest fight in history. Former welterweight world champion Andre Berto is believed to be the favourite to fight Mayweather at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Khan was believed to be a stronger candidate, but Mayweather has rejected him again after doing so last year before. Khan was removed from consideration, the official said, because he kept publicly criticizing Mayweather after being told to keep his opinions quiet.
