Floyd Mayweather maintained his perfect record as a professional boxer over the weekend by comfortably defeating the Mexican, Saul Alvarez, on points in Las Vegas over the weekend. Since then talk has turned to who 'Pretty Boy' Floyd will fight next, and Bolton's Amir Kahn seems to have thrown his hat into the ring for a potential fight in Britain next year.
The former Super WBA and IBF Lightweight Champion of the World tweeted this morning, and appears to have subsequently deleted,
"Floyd Snr wants his son to face me. Let's get it on. I've never turned down any fight. Speed v speed."
As a result, Twitter has gotten pretty excited by the prospect of a 'Money' Mayweather v 'King' Kahn showdown in Blighty.
