FLOYD SETS SEPTEMBER DATE, AVOIDS KHAN

0

LAS VEGAS: Unbeaten American welterweight king Floyd Mayweather reportedly will next fight on September 13, which would rule out England’s Amir Khan as an opponent for religious reasons. Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN of Mayweather’s next fight date but said no site or opponent had been set, a report on the network’s website said. Khan, whom Mayweather had avoided when he selected Marcos Maidana to fight in a bout he won earlier this month, had said earlier that he could not fight in September because he would be celebrating Ramadan, a fasting month for Muslims.
