Boxing: Floyd Mayweather may name opponent - touted to be Amir Khan - this week

GRAND RAPIDS (AFP) - Unbeaten US fighter Floyd Mayweather hinted that the identity of his next foe, speculated to be Britain's Amir Khan, could be revealed this week.

In a report yesterday on the MLive Media Group website from Mayweather's home state of Michigan, he was quoted as saying last week that this week could be a big one.

Asked about his fight future on Nov 27, he said: "Next week. I'm looking forward to next week. But as for me right now, I'm not thinking about boxing."

Mayweather, 45-0 with 26 knockouts, is expected to fight on May 3 next year in his first bout since taking the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light middleweight titles in a 12-round majority decision over Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Sept 14.
