Earlier this week, Amir Khan voiced his frustration at not having a lucrative fight with Floyd Mayweather by stating that the pound-for-pound king is taking the “easy route” by choosing to face Manny Pacquiao.
Khan also said that the fight may even be “dull” as he believed both fighters are past their prime.
Nobody, of course, was moved by the 28-year-old Englishman’s assertions as the May 2 showdown looks to place the two best fighters in the world against each other.
Mayweather, it seems, was even more unmoved, offering a ticket to Khan to acquiesce his “worries.”
“I am touched that Amir is concerned about the fight, and that it might be boring for the fans,” said Mayweather to the DailyMail.co.uk.
“He doesn’t need to worry, the fact this has taken so long to happen only makes the anticipation and build up of the fight that much greater,” Mayweather continued.
The 38-year-old native of Grand Rapids, Michigan may be right, though he and Pacquiao are inarguably a bit older and slower.
Nevertheless, Mayweather believes it will be exciting and even offered Khan a ticket.
“I can even get him a ticket if he wants–so he can see what the biggest fight in the history of boxing looks like–and to appease any fears he might have about a boring fight,” said Mayweather.
Sarcasm aside, despite his not getting a fight with either one, Khan is doing his best to stay in the spotlight in hopes of a fight in the future.
