Amir Khan is ready to step into the ring once again just weeks after announcing his retirement.  

Earlier this month, the former world champion walked away from boxing following a brutal loss to long-time rival, Kell Brook, but it appears that he’s not quite ready to give up on competition just yet after issuing a challenge to Floyd Mayweather. 

Once boxing’s best fighter, Mayweather has made a fortune from the exhibition circuit with a number of contests against various levels of opposition including YouTuber, Logan Paul.  

Mayweather was once a serious target of Khan’s when the pair occupied lofty positions at welterweight back in 2014, but it now appears that an exhibition between the pair is the only way they can get in the ring. 

“We saw the event today, I think Floyd needs a real challenge,” said Khan to videographer Azizdxb after watching Mayweather dominate previous sparring partner, Don Moore, last weekend in Abu Dhabi.  

Khan added, “We should do it, 100 per cent guys, let's make it happen. I'm calling him out. Either hit me up or hit my brother up.”
