AMIR KHAN is likely to be Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent according to Betway.

The date of September 12, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been set aside for Floyd Mayweather’s next bout, and Khan – who has been chasing Floyd for years – could be set to hit the jackpot.

Bookmakers are rarely wrong and they have Khan priced at 2-1 to seal his dream and take on Mayweather in a welterweight superfight. Floyd’s countrymen Keith Thurman (who takes on Luis Collazo this weekend) and Timothy Bradley are also in the running at 5-2 and 7-2 respectively.
