FLOYD Mayweather looks set to sensationally snub Amir Khan again and fight Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield later this year.
Boxing’s pound-for-pound king is due to back in the ring in September and speculation continues to grow as to who the 38-year-old will take on in what could be his last fight.
Khan, who won an unanimous points decision over Chris Algieri last month, has repeatedly challenged Mayweather to take him on – having first been overlooked by the undefeated American in 2014.
Along with Khan, a host of boxing’s biggest names – including Britain’s undefeated IBF champion Kell Brook, Keith Thurman and Gennady Golovkin – have been mentioned as potential opponents for Mayweather.
But when asked about who he will fight in September, Mayweather told ESPN’s Dan Rafael: “I’m going to fight Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield in September.”
And speaking on Saturday after Shawn Porter beat Adrien Broner, Mayweather again dismissed the possibility of fighting Khan – replying ‘no’ to reporters, according to boxingnews24.com.
Berto, a 31-year-old Haitian-American, is ranked No. 1 by the WBA and is a former two-time welterweight champion, while Mayfield is a relatively unknown 34-year-old American who has lost two of his last three fights.
