Amir Khan focused on task in hand
28 May 2015 07:07
Amir Khan insists he is focused entirely on the task at hand as he prepares to take on Chris Algieri in New York on Friday night.
-
Khan has been tipped by many to be the next opponent for pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather since the undefeated welterweight beat Manny Pacquiao earlier this month.
-
The Bolton fighter believed he had a fight lined up with Mayweather last year only for the American to take on Marcos Maidana and then hand the Argentinian a rematch before facing Pacquiao.
-
That left Khan inactive for over 12 months and the former two-time world champion insists he is thinking only about Algieri.
-
"I'm focused on Chris Algieri," he said. "I don't want to look past this fight, this is going to be a tough fight for me.
-
"I've made that mistake before in boxing, when you look past fights, but I ain't looking past this fight.
-
"Everywhere I go, people ask me, 'what about Mayweather? What about Pacquiao?' I'm not looking at them guys.
-
"The guy I'm fighting, the guy I've been working on, the techniques I've been working on is to beat Chris Algieri, not Mayweather, not Pacquiao.
-
"I've got Chris Algieri, there's no point me looking at Mayweather, looking past this fight, because that fight might never happen."
