Amir Khan welcomes prospect of shock Conor McGregor fight after Terence Crawford
Amir Khan said he would absolutely be willing to fight Conor McGregor after his bout with Terence Crawford on Saturday night.
Despite the fact he is challenging the odds against his American foe this weekend, the Brit still envisages victory for himself and hopes big things will follow afterwards.
Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook are still floating around as options for Khan, however the man himself also likes the idea of an ambitious alternative plan.
When asked by talkSPORT’s Gareth A Davies if he could face McGregor after Crawford, Khan answered: “I mean it’s business, isn’t it?
“We’re at a level now where it makes great business like Floyd Mayweather. We all learned from Floyd Mayweather – how he makes fights happen.
“Conor McGregor vs Amir Khan would be a massive fight. It’d be huge, you’ve got Irish vs English so that’ll be massive.
“If that happens, I’m not one to turn away from that.”
McGregor recently announced his ‘retirement’ from MMA, however has since teased that a return is on the cards.
In his previous boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, the UFC star was stopped in the tenth round.
Amir Khan vs Terence Crawford for the WBO welterweight title is live on BT Sport Box Office from 11.30pm on Saturday April 20
