Amir Khan insists his dream fight against Floyd Mayweather is not on his mind ahead of Saturday’s bout against Devon Alexander in Las Vegas.
The winner of the welterweight showdown could fight unbeaten five-weight world champion Mayweather next year.
However, Britain’s Khan has been promised a fight against Mayweather before, only to be disappointed.
Khan has endured a frustrating year, with American superstar Mayweather choosing to fight Argentine Marcos Maidana twice instead and a scheduled fight against Alexander, who was then a world champion, falling through.
And Khan, who returned from a 13-month lay-off with a points win over veteran American Luis Collazo on his welterweight debut in May, is still keen to make the Mayweather fight happen.
Meanwhile, Khan’s American promoter Oscar de la Hoya believes his charge has the talent to become one of the all-time greats at 147lb.
Philippine great Manny Pacquiao has thrown down another challenge to the 37-year-old Mayweather, who is scheduled to fight next May.
