The only thing standing between Amir Khan and his shot at cashing out with a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the pound for pound kings signature on a contract. According to Martin Domin of the Daily Mail, Khan has confirmed that he has signed a contract to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2014 and is just waiting for the American to sign the documents. Yes Floyd is referred to as the American for this one. I am the one who signed the contract, I’ve signed my part of the contract, they’ve not signed theirs. If he wants to fight Amir Khan then he should sign it. If he wants to face someone I’ve beaten [Maidana] then so be it. He wants to fight someone who makes him look good but styles make fights. Khan would probably have a signed contract right now if not for the dominating performance Marcos Maidana put on against Adrien Broner two weeks ago. Khan for his part has a victory over Maidana from 2010 to help pad his resume.  Showtime executive vice president Stephen Espinoza said last week that Khan is definitely in play despite Maidan’s rise. Khan is definitely one of the leading contenders for the fight. I know Amir wants the fight. Floyd hasn’t made a decision. I expect an announcement by mid-January or the end of January. It is still wide open. Floyd has not made a decision yet about who he is going to fight on May 3. Obviously, Marcos Maidana is making a late case and a strong argument for the fight, but Amir is definitely there in the conversation.
