Amir Khan Reveals The Shocking Reason For Mayweather The Fight Never Happened


Amir Khan has shed light on why a huge money fight with former king Floyd Mayweather never materialized.

Boxer Bolton was repeatedly said to fight Mayweather in the early 2010s when the two were among the elite fighters of the Korean weight division, but in the end, they would never split a ring.

Talk to former Manchester United captain Gary Neville on OverlappingKhan revealed that the contract to face Mayweather was indeed signed, but the American pulled out at the last minute – as Khan announced the fight before him.

β€œMe and him (Mayweather) had to fight. I signed all the contracts, everything was negotiated and signed off.

Why doesn’t it happen? Because I announced it before him – can you believe it?

He wanted to be the man who announced the fight, but since I announced it, he said ‘look I’m not fighting you’

He believes in his own ego so much that no one can claim something before him.”

Facing Mayweather is sure to be a career high-paying day for Khan, so it’s perhaps no surprise that the fight’s fallout leaves a bit of a bittersweet streak, especially when Khan believes he will beat Mayweather when both fighters are at their peak:
