Amir Khan still trying to bait Floyd Mayweather into a fight

Amir Khan was sitting just seats away from Floyd Mayweather during the Garcia-Guerrero fight and couldn't pass up the opportunity to attempt to lure Mayweather into a fight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Give Amir Khan credit, he just doesn't give up that easily. During this weekend's fight between Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero, Khan got into a little exchange with Mayweather, trying to lure him into a fight. If you want to watch the video, you only really need to see the first minute, with the remainder just being extra fluff.

The exchange between Mayweather and Khan went a little something like this:

FM: This is easy work here [referring to Danny Garcia]

AK: It was easy work...

FM: I ain't never hit the ground.

AK: Oh really?

FM: I ain't never been hurt.

AK: The best have been hurt.

FM: I'm the best, I haven't been beaten.

AK: Yeah alright, bro.

FM: When you make $300M in one night then come talk to me.

AK: .......

AK: We're ready. We're ready [to fight].

FM: I'll take a few years off, you get some victories. Get a couple W's and I may come back and cook you...
