Amir Khan has set his sights on welterweight superstar Floyd Mayweather, claiming he wants to take on the very best throughout his career.
Khan, who began his professional career at lightweight, stepped up to light-welter following a disastrous first round knockout at the hands of Breidis Prescot.
After making the switch to world-class trainer Freddie Roach's gym and stepping up a division, the 24-year-old claimed the WBA belt with a comprehensive points win over Andreas Kotelnik.
He has since defended his title with victories over Dmitry Salita, Paulie Malignaggi, Marcos Maidana and Paul McCloskey.
After failing to secure a unification bout with Timothy Bradley, Khan will face the experienced Zab Judah in July but he has his sights on a mega-fight with the unbeaten Mayweather.
"I want to fight the best and they don't come any better than Floyd," he said. "I don't want to duck a challenge and he is the man I want to meet in the ring.
"I don't think a challenge from Floyd will daunt me," Khan added. "He will obviously be a real challenge but it is one that I will willingly accept."
Mayweather - unbeaten in 41 fights - has long been regarded as one of the finest fighters on the planet and a contender for the title of pound-for-pound king.
