The latest update on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs.. Manny Pacquiao front is that both parties are already in advanced talks with regards to the scheduled super fight in 2015 even naming a venue, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada for a fight most likely on May 2, 2015. The entire boxing community is celebrating this development but one person, British boxer Amir Khan, is not very happy with the news as he wanted either Mayweather or Pacquiao for his own big money bout in the same date.

In recent weeks, Khan has been calling out Mayweather and even accused the undefeated American of running away from a fight with him. Khan also stated that if Mayweather will ignore him again like what he did in previous years, the British boxer will turn his focus in getting a fight with Pacquiao. Unfortunately for the British boxer it looks like he won’t be getting either fight and he will have to settle fighting not as popular fighters like Kell Brook, Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman or Marcos Maidana in the welterweight division.

The 28-year-old from Bolton, Lancashire in the United Kingdom sounded defeated in a recent interview when asked about the Mayweather fight.

"I want to fight in May and I want the Mayweather fight but it’s not getting any closer," Khan said to The Telegraph on Tuesday "There is a lot of money in a fight with me but he’s trying to avoid me. Mayweather wants to keep his ‘nought’, he doesn’t want to take the big fights. I’ve given his team five days. I need to know because I need to start training.”

Pacquiao and Khan both trained under world-class trainer Freddie Roach some years back when the British boxer trained in Roach’s Wild Card Gym. Khan’s status in the division has taken a hit after losing back to back bouts in 2011 to Lamont Peterson and in 2012 to Garcia. Khan w has since won four fights in a row against Carlos Molina, Julio Diaz, Luiz Collazo and the latest against Devon Alexander to improve to 30 wins and 3 losses in his boxing career.

If the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao happens, it will be Mayweather’s second to the last fight in his $300 million contract with the Showtime network. A rematch clause is also being discussed in the which means Khan’s desperate attempt to chase Mayweather, who has mentioned before that he’s nearing retirement, may be coming to an end and his dream fight with Mayweather.
