According to Kevin Mitchell of The Guardian, Floyd Mayweather Jr is not only open to a potential 2012 fight with Amir Khan, but he'd be willing to travel to make it happen, too:

"I would love to come and fight at Wembley," he says. ... "Everywhere I go, I will make a good payday. But we got to choose the right opponent and the right time and the right venue. You guys got some great venues. I could fill a soccer stadium over there. I like fighters who come to fight. Amir Khan is a young champion. I take my hat off to him. It's a difficult challenge [against Judah]. It will not be easy for either man."

Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO) faces Victor Ortiz on September 17 in Las Vegas, while Khan (25-1, 17 KO) takes on Zab Judah tonight, also in Las Vegas. There has been a lot of talk about a Mayweather vs Khan fight next year, and Floyd's trainer and uncle Roger recently accused Khan of using steroids, adding him to the list with Manny Pacquiao. Khan and Pacquiao share trainer Freddie Roach and conditioning coach Alex Ariza.

Floyd, to his credit, declined to comment on Roger's recent comments.
