“There’s fights I’ve wanted, like for example the Floyd Mayweather fight – that was talked about for years and years, and didn’t happen. The Manny Pacquiao fight, which was talked about and didn’t happen, so you do kind of fall out of love [with boxing].
“The reason I took the ‘Canelo’ fight is because I got quite desperate,” Khan told Sky Sports.
The Bolton boxer wanted Vegas glitz and glamour but it came with a hefty price.
“I really wanted a big super fight and I wanted my name up on the Vegas strip. It’s always been my dream. The Mayweather fight got so close many times, which never seemed to happen. Should I have taken that fight? Maybe not. It was a massive opportunity for me. I don’t regret it no,” said Khan.
This week Khan’s focus is solely on his upcoming opponent from Canada, Phil Lo Greco.
I won't have any excuses on April 21st. YOU didn't give me shit, and YOU better come mentally fucking ready for this. #QueenKhan
