Mayweather to Khan: You won't beat Broner, but if you do, I'll fight you

Al Bello

Floyd Mayweather isn't fighting Amir Khan on May 3, but he says he'll fight Khan later on if Amir beats Adrien Broner -- which Floyd doesn't think he will.

Floyd Mayweather and Amir Khan aren't going to fight on May 3, but that hasn't stopped the two of them from talking about one another. Mayweather explained on Showtime this past weekend that he chose "the better man" when he picked Marcos Maidana over Khan for the SHO PPV fight, but Khan is still a little bitter, and frankly he has a right to be in many respects.

Mayweather (45-0, 26 KO) does have an idea, one that focuses on a much-discussed potential fight between Khan and Adrien Broner, which would possibly take place on the May 3 undercard.

Khan (28-3, 19 KO) apparently doesn't buy it:

To be honest, I'm sure Mayweather would fight Khan if Khan beat Broner on the May 3 undercard. It wouldn't happen in September -- as was pointed out to me the other day, which I had forgotten, Khan will not fight in September due to Ramadan, because it won't let him get a full proper camp in -- but it could certainly happen next May. If Khan beat Broner, though, he might not want to wait a year, which could mean a late-year tune-up fight before facing Floyd in May, which would also mean Mayweather, should he fight in September, would have to take an interim bout.

But that's all up in the air and depends on Khan-Broner actually happening, and then Mayweather and Khan not losing in the meantime if they both won on May 3, and then negotiations for next year, so this is really mostly, "Floyd said a thing, Khan did, too."
