Former jr. welterweight champion Amir Khan revealed that he has signed a contract to face undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather on May 3. "I am the one who signed the contract, I've signed my part of the contract, they've not signed theirs," Khan stated during a recent interview. "If he wants to fight Amir Khan then he should sign it."
It's not unusual for one of Mayweather's opponents to sign a contract well in advance of him making a final decision. That being said, it appears that Khan may be a little concerned that there's a possibility that Mayweather could opt to go in another direction. "If he wants to face someone I've beaten, then so be it,' Khan continued, commenting on reports that newly-crowned WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana is also in the running to land the fight. "He wants to fight someone who makes him look good, but styles make fights," he added.
