Boxing News 2014: Amir Khan Plans to Invite Floyd Mayweather to Bolton Home for a Game of Fight Night on Xbox

British boxer Amir Khan could possibly have a chance to fight unbeaten American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. Not in MGM Grand, but through the video game Fight Night on Khan's Xbox.
Upon learning that Khan hometown, Bolton, is one of the stops of Money May in his world tour, the British boxer whom Mayweather ditched in favour of Argentinean boxer Marcos Maidana in the May 3 match, Khan said he plans to invite Mayweather to his house.
His residence is just two miles away from the Reebok Stadium where Mayweather was invited to a £200-ticket dinner.
"When I heard he was coming to Bolton, I thought I must invite him to my house. We could have a game of pool, but I'm rubbish at that so maybe we could have a game of Fight Night and I could knock him out," Khan said, quoted by Mirror.
He said he would attend the dinner at Reebok. Khan, who had returned to Britain after he won over Luis Collazo in the undercard on May 3, has fond memories of Reebok because his last amateur fight before he turned professional in 2005 was in the same stadium.
However, the British boxer is not discounting the possibility that Money May is coming to Bolton to look at the possibility of a match or could just be trying to annoy him.
Khan said the sign that Mayweather could be teasing him is if Money May shows up wearing a Bumley shirt.
Aware that Mayweather is already considering hanging up his gloves soon, the British boxer said, "I want that big fight before I even consider retiring. Not for the money, but just so I can know myself that I fought the best."
