Bolton boxer Amir Khan believes fans want to see him fight Floyd Mayweather, after his victory against Luis Collazo in Las Vegas.

Khan won last night's bout on points, and now argues he has the "style" to "trouble" the unbeaten Mayweather.

The fighter said: "People want to see a fight between me and Floyd. He hasn't seen speed. He's fighting people with explosive power. But styles make fights and I think my style will give him a lot of trouble."
