Amir Khan says Floyd Mayweather is ‘full of (expletive)’

Floyd Mayweather claims that he will consider fighting Amir Khan in the future.

Numerous media outlets reported that Khan (28-3, 19 KOs) was slated to face Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) on May 3.

However, Mayweather ultimately decided to bypass Khan and instead meet Marcos Maidana this spring at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

The 30-year-old Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) decisively bested Adrien Broner in December to earn the WBA welterweight title.

According to the Associated Press, Maidana officially trumped the 24-year-old Broner (27-1, 22 KOs) by scores of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109.

A powerful and beloved Argentinean, Maidana outworked Broner and floored the loudmouth in the second and eighth rounds.

Maidana, who is also a past junior welterweight champion, was far more active than Broner and landed bruising punches throughout the 36-minute slugfest.

“I don't have an easy fight on May 3, 2014, so I can't over look @ChinoMaidana,” tweeted Mayweather, 36, the Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007.

“But @AmirKingKhan, if you and @AdrienBroner end up fighting...each other on my show and you win (which you won’t)... I'll fight you.”

Meanwhile, “King Khan” most recently exited the squared circle in April after outscoring Mexican Julio Diaz.

Flattened by a left hook in the fourth and staggered by the same blow in the eighth, 10th and 11th rounds, Khan was lucky to escape without losing to Diaz (40-9-1, 29 KOs).

“FM is full of shit,” tweeted Khan, 27, who won a controversial unanimous decision over Maidana in December 2010. “Just like ‘my next opponent’ Poll.”

With his intimidating style and cement fists, Maidana exposed Broner and proved he is nothing more than a fragile blowhard.

Regardless, as a human chandelier, Khan would get knocked onto Queer Street by Adrien Broner.

“The Problem” is, despite being a somewhat advanced pugilist, Amir Khan is “full of (expletive)” if he thinks he deserves to battle the great Floyd Mayweather.
