Khan defends controversial Mayweather win
- From the section Boxing
GB boxer Amir Khan defends Floyd Mayweather's controversial WBC welterweight title victory on Sunday, when the American landed a knockout blow as opponent Victor Ortiz was apologising for delivering a headbutt seconds earlier.
Khan says Ortiz should have known better than to take his eyes off his opponent, and the Brit admits he would have thrown a punch too.
The WBA and IBF world champion adds that he wants to see Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao meet in the ring, but fears it will not happen.
Khan was speaking at the launch of Knot Violence, an anti-violence initiative.
