Amir Khan called on undefeated Floyd Mayweather, Jr. after his unanimous decision victory over Luis Collazo on May 3.

Amir Khan wants Floyd Mayweather, Jr. 

Khan made this emphatically clear after his dominant win over Luis Collazo on May 3, per ESPN's Dan Rafael:

"Amir Khan thought he had a fight against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. locked up months ago and was bitterly disappointed when Mayweather bypassed him and elected to fight Marcos Maidana instead on Saturday night. 

"So Khan, a former unified junior welterweight titlist, accepted a spot in the co-feature, moved up to welterweight and scored a clear unanimous decision against former titleholder Luis Collazo at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, hoping his victory was enough of a statement to put himself at the front of the line to face Mayweather in the fall. 

"'Definitely, people want to see that fight between me and Floyd,' Khan said. 'He's fighting guys who are strong, but styles make fights, and I believe my style would cause Floyd a lot of trouble.'"

Khan told BadLeftHook.com's Scott Christ on May 4 a fight pitting him against Mayweather, who outpointed Argentina's Marcos Maidana in the main event, will be a blockbuster. 

"Maidana had moments. Floyd looked great as always. I bring speed. I'm quicker than Floyd. I bring explosiveness, and I showed I bring my power to 147. 

"I think we're the full package, and we're getting better. We're still improving. I'm going to watch the tape, see what I did wrong. Floyd's getting a little older now. People want the fight now, because they want a young lion to come up and see him get beat. 

"If you look at my fights, even the ones I've lost, when it comes to boxing, no one can beat us. Floyd's a master class in boxing, but I've never lost when it comes to boxing. It'll be skills versus skills. And I think youth will take it. 

"Floyd changes his style for each fight, but if he was in front of me, I'll get my shots off. If Maidana got one off, I'll get three off. I can't do September due to Ramadan, but it's a fight I'd love to have. 

"Floyd's getting older now. He's making mistakes. He's not the same as he used to be. It's a great time to catch him. This is a time where someone young and hungry can catch Floyd.

"Quick feet will get us a lot of points. I really believe that I can do a lot better than Maidana did, no disrespect."

Khan's promoter, Richard Schaefer, told The Telegraph's Gareth A. Davies he will do whatever he can to make the fight possible. 

"We will talk to Team Khan and Al Haymon (an adviser to both Mayweather and Khan) as to how we move forward. We saw here that Amir moving to 147 pounds was long overdue. 

"He clearly belongs in the division -- and there a lot of great fights he can have here. I know his dream is to fight Floyd Mayweather, and I'm going to do my best to make that dream come true."

 Khan was in control of the fight against Collazo from the opening bell. He rocked Collazo with two rights and a left hook in the second round. 

Khan then rocked Collazo with a short right hand in the third round which sent him to the canvas -- the first of three knockdowns during the fight. 

Collazo then landed a low blow in the eighth round which prompted referee Vic Drakulich to deduct a point from him. 

However, Collazo enjoyed his finest moment of the fight during that same round when he tagged Khan with a solid left which wobbled his legs. Khan was also deducted a point in the eighth round for holding, per Rafael. 

 

Khan managed to shake off the effects of Collzo's haymaker to drop his opponent two more times in the 10th round -- the first on a right to the chin and the second on a left-right hand combination. 

At the end of the 12-round bout, the judges saw it 119-104, 119-104 and 117-106 in favor of the 27-year-old Khan, who upped his record to 29-3 with 19 knockouts. 

Collazo, 33, dropped to 35-6 with 18 stoppages.
