Amir Khan believes Mayweather Vs Pacquiao fight is what everyone wants to seeReuters

Add the 2004 Athens Olympic Games Silver medallist Amir Khan to the list of boxers who want the fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to enthral audiences all over the world on 2 May at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather and Pacquiao are two of the greatest boxers of the modern era, but Khan is also on the verge of greatness, as far as his stats are concerned along with titles.

Amir Khan enjoys a good record in his professional career, where he has lost only three matches in 33 bouts, knocking out his opponents 19 times.

After putting up a splendid show against Devon Alexander, the British boxer was expecting to fight Mayweather or even Pacquiao.

But Amir Khan does not have any complaints if he gets a chance to see both the boxers in action, as it is the most awaited clash of the century, which has not been able to see the light of the day. One wonders if it will ever, as the negotiations for the bout have been dragging on for what it seems to be ages now.

He feels that Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight will happen.

"I think they are hopefully fighting each other in May. I think I probably have missed that chance of fighting Floyd or Manny," he told Sky Sports News HQ.

"I was speaking to both parties. It was going to happen. But because I'm a huge boxing fan myself I can't really argue. It's a fight that everyone has been waiting for. I want to see it myself as well."

It is not only people involved in the sports of boxing, who are eager for the fight to take shape, but boxing fans around the world have also been waiting for the fight, as it was first expected to take place in 2010, which failed.

These fans would be a disappointed lot if the deal once again collapses, for this could be for the last time that these boxers may have a chance to trade blows inside the same ring, considering their age. The American is 37 years old, while the Filipino is 36.

Though Khan wants the fight of the century to take place, if it does not it would be no surprise if Amir Khan gets his chance to fight Mayweather.

With Mayweather contracted with Showtime, Stephen Espinoza, the networks' boss stated a few days earlier that Miguel Cotto or Amir Khan could face Mayweather, if the 2 May fight fails.
