Floyd Mayweather has little interest in an exhibition fight with Amir Khan.

Khan fought this year in what is almost certainly his final professional bout, losing to fellow British veteran Kell Brook.

While he had floated the idea of staying in boxing, perhaps with a rematch against Brook, he recently suggested he would be happy to fight Mayweather.

The pair almost fought in 2015, but speaking to the Daily Mail, Mayweather does not think Khan measures up.

“It's great that he [Amir Khan] feels that way. But you've got to look in the mirror Khan against Canelo and look at me against Canelo. That's your answer right there,” he said.

“I'm not even worried about Amir Khan. I want to go out there this weekend in Tokyo and have fun [against Mikuru Asakura]. 

“Then I have another exhibition in Dubai in November and [then I want] me and Conor McGregor in 2023. 

“Amir Khan is reaching and reaching and reaching. He has been reaching and reaching and reaching his whole career. 

“He was a pretty cool fighter but he wasn't a Floyd Mayweather or any of the other top guys. He did what he had to do. He's a clout chaser.”
