Khan: I want to be in big world title fights

This is my chance to prove once and for all that I'm the best in the division.

I can win the WBC title and will have held three of the four belts in the light-welterweight division, so it's time to move up to 147lbs.

I just think there are more challenges out there for me in that division.

I want to be in big world title fights and in big fights with the likes of Mayweather. To do that, I need to be up in that division.

Watching Mayweather's last fight (a points win against Miguel Cotto), coupled with the way I've been training, I think I'm ready.

One of the reasons I want to move up to 147lbs is to fight Mayweather and it's not about the money, it's about me knowing I can beat the guy and be the next guy at the top, the next pound for pound champion.

– Amir Khan told Press Association Sport

Floyd Mayweather is currently serving a prison sentence for domestic violence and Khan will be waiting when he is released in a few weeks' time.

Amir Khan believes he is ready to move onwards and upwards providing he beats Danny Garcia in the light-welterweight unification fight.

The 25-year-old Briton, who has been reinstated as WBA champion, takes on WBC holder Garcia in Las Vegas in a bout which will see the winner crowned Ring magazine champion.

Khan then plans to move up to welterweight and take on American superstar Mayweather. The Bolton fighter and his team are convinced he is ready for such a test, while Golden Boy Promotions boss Richard Schaefer insists it is "an easy fight to make".
