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.
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.
