While WBC and WBA welterweight title holder Floyd Mayweather Jr has taken the challenge of his last ring opponent, Argentinean boxer Marcos Maidana, for a rematch possibly in September, Money May appears to be hinting that he would also take the dare of British pugilist Amir Khan.

Khan was believed to be the original foe of Mayweather in the May 3 bout, but even if the native of Bolton won in an online survey, Money May still picked Maidana to the dismay of Khan.

However, speculations that he would finally fight Khan surfaced after Mayweather included Bolton, Khan's hometown, as one of the six venues of the England leg of the pound-for-pound king's world tour.

He is scheduled to attend the sportsman's dinner - which costs £200 per head - to be held on June 23, Monday, at the Reebok Stadium, the home of the Bolton Wanderers. The Bolton invitation was arranged by British businessman Spencer Brown.

Khan is a Bolton Wanderer fan, which is an indicator he would likely attend the dinner, which includes a Q&A portion.

The British boxer said that Mayweather has assured him he is on Money May's list. He indicated he would be ready to face Mayweather in late October because the original September date eyed by Money May is too close to Ramadan which ends in July.

Khan, a Muslim, said he would need three months training before he could face Mayweather in his dream bout.

Money May, however, has remain silent on former boxing heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali's dare for him to rumble with Manny Pacquiao.
