MUMBAI, July 7 (Reuters) - Amir Khan spent years seeking to nail down a major with Floyd Mayweather Junior yet the Briton is a lot more than thrilled to see the undefeated multi-division world champion come out of old age to manage a man who else has never a new individual professional bout.

Mayweather hung up his gloves within 2015 with a 49-0 record but the 40-year-old American will return to be able to the ring to get a rewarding 12-round boxing match towards Irish mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor inside Vegas next month.

Reports of a fight in between former world light-welterweight champion Khan and Mayweather usually surfaced in the press but the bout never ever materialised as neither camping came close to the negotiating table.

Despite plenty of criticism within boxing, the 30-year-old Khan can feel the crossover fight between Mayweather and McGregor is going to be positive for the sports activity, which he feels provides lost ground to typically the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) MMA promotion.

"It's a business fight, one, " Khan told Reuters. "Two, what's going to occur now could be it's between boxing and MMA.

"At the particular moment, MMA and ULTIMATE FIGHTER CHAMPIONSHIPS is doing a lot of excellent numbers on TV, upon pay-per-view. Boxing is performing OK but it required little bit of a dip. We are not necessarily getting the favorable pay-per-view numbers we utilized to.

"For today to combine both sporting activities together is going in order to be perfect for the sport of boxing (more) as compared to MMA.

"We hit a new wall and we didn't really do anything. Boxing never moved forward about the world, whereas MIXED MARTIAL ARTS kept moving forward and got bigger and bigger plus bigger. Boxing kind regarding stalled in my viewpoint and we needed something just like this. "

Undefeated middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin has dismissed the fight as a 'circus show' but Khan disagrees using the Kazakh fighter.

"You must respect everybody that goes into the ring, you have got to respect everybody who puts the gloves on. You have to battle in front of millions... not simple, " the Briton mentioned in an interview.

Khan, who won a metallic medal as a lightweight at the 2004 Athens Olympics, is also optimistic that Mayweather's return may ultimately lead to a long-awaited showdown involving the two males.

"When he beats McGregor, which I think this individual will, that fight can easily still be there. It actually can happen, " Khan (31-4) said. "There's still several big fights out right now there for me, Mayweather, (Manny) Pacquiao... "


Khan was slated to battle eight-division world champion Pacquiao in the United Arabic Emirates earlier this yr but that deal chop down through over money difficulties.

The Filipino instead required on little-regarded Australian Jeff Horn in Brisbane final weekend and suffered the stunning controversial points loss to the former schoolteacher.

"I don't think Pacquiao lost, he lost on paper, " Khan mentioned. "This is boxing, is actually happened in my experience, it's took place to many fighters. You can't sulk about it. You just have to go back, possess the rematch and conquer him.

"We all know Manny is the better mma fighter. I just think he should have gone in right now there and knocked him out there. Because sometimes fighting someone in their own garden is quite difficult to win with the benefits he has. "

Khan also did not rule out securing a bout against Pacquiao in typically the future.

"Maybe the Pacquiao fight will happen later, it's exactly about time, " he said. "Maybe Manny Pacquiao didn't sense confident to take the particular fight with me this particular time, maybe he may take it next moment. inches

Khan has not fought since May 2016, when he moved up two divisions to take on middleweight Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, a sixth-round knockout loss of which he admits was a new mistake he would not be repeating sooner.

"It's now all about making the right choices for me personally, making certain I don't consider fights that I avoid need... like going upward two weight categories, " he said.

"It had been a mistake. But when you have to do something which is not ordinary, you need to go do something crazy. That would have taken me to a different level. So you have to be able to take big risks. Yet it can be harmful for the career. "

Khan was at Mumbai to market the franchise-based Super Boxing League which runs through July 7 to August. 12, is going to be televised survive by Sony ESPN in addition to is backed by the World Boxing Council (WBC). (Editing by John O'Brien)
